APPLICATION: High use doors at a power generating plant
REPLACED: Rolling Steel Doors
PROBLEM: Safety Concern with doors free-falling
After a near-miss incident involving a steel rolling door free-falling, the plant decided to replace the existing rolling steel doors with the PerforMax MaxSpeed rubber door. With its built-in safety brake, the chance of door free-fall is completely eliminated. In addition, there is no downtime due to accidental impacts with the breakaway design of the doors.
