The Safest Roll-Up Doors You Can Buy
In the workplace, safety is key and one of the biggest things any company wants to avoid is an injury on their property. On top of the physical injury itself to an employee or guest of the property, the company ends up with a lot of excess expenses as a result. One of the best ways to reduce accidents that cause injuries is to switch to PerforMax Global Rubber Doors instead of steel or aluminum.
Springless Direct Drive Motor
PerforMax Global High Performance rubber doors feature springless, direct drive motors. Due to the springless operation, you don’t have to worry about springs or related parts breaking and causing injury to those around the door at the time of the defect.
Another positive of the Direct Drive motors featured on PerforMax’s rubber doors is that it has an inertia brake. If anything ever goes wrong with the motor or its power supply, the inertia brake will prevent the door from freefalling as other types of doors would. Other doors can be very heavy, and when their motors fail the door is at risk of falling onto someone below. PerforMax Global doors, however, do not face that risk. The inertia brake prevents injury related for falling doors.
Flexible Rubber Curtain
The rubber curtain itself is a safety feature. Because it is flexible, if someone collides into it the material will flex rather than cut, scratch, or tear. It is also able to break away from its guides in the event of an accident, getting out of the way rather than tearing and creating sharp edges.
PerforMax Global’s rubber doors are all impactable – meaning that when someone crashed into them with a vehicle, forklift, or similar piece of machinery, the door will break away from its guides and retract upwards. The door gets out of the way of whatever is hitting it allowing for minimal damage or injury risk.
Overall, rubber roll-up doors are just safer than doors made of other materials. PerforMax Global takes every possible situation into consideration when making our doors to ensure they are the safest option you can buy.
