DYNACO Introduces SlimLine Doors
DYNACO Introduces SlimLine Doors For Interior Environmental Control And Safety In Electronics, Packaging, Warehousing, Processing or Cleanroom Applications.
Northbrook, IL... DYNACO, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high performance, roll up doors has announced the introduction of a new line of interior use door models called The SlimLine. Each model in the line is designed for specific market segments and/or applications.
The DYNACO SlimLine Techno door is specially designed to reliably and efficiently control small to medium interior door openings for electronics, packaging, warehousing and processing applications. This door is designed to facilitate demanding, high cycle operation where productivity, safety and environment control are critical. The SlimLine Techno operates quickly and quietly at speeds up to 6 feet per second. A superior seal, self re-inserting design and exclusive soft curtain technology provide the maximum in safety, efficiency and productivity available.
Safety is no accident. Fast paced environments and tight production schedules can increase the potential for accidents. All high performance doors have the potential for four types of accidents: lateral, downward, secondary and entrapment. Only DYNACO can address, and virtually eliminate, all four types of accidents with our patented "soft curtain" technology. Included as standard is an infrared photo sensor system built into the side guides which provide protection for anyone or anything that is under the door by instantly reversing its travel. The soft bottom edge technology also incorporates a wireless fail-safe reversing sensor that reverses the door should it come in contact with people or product. And, in the event that all systems fail or are bypassed, our exclusive Soft Curtain System protects pedestrians by eliminating all rigid components, making it gently forgiving. No other high speed door on the market can provide your employees with greater safety and security.
The seal's the deal! DYNACO's exclusive, patented bead technology and low profile side-guide system provides a virtually perfect seal. The UHMW inner side guide is self lubricating and virtually encapsulates the curtain retainer. This technology provides ultra smooth, ultra quiet and ultra clean operation without the use of damage prone, inefficient weather-strip systems. This patented DYNACO system minimizes air exchange to differences in pressure up to 0.82 pounds per square foot. The bottom of the door incorporates a soft bottom edge that perfectly matches the contour of the floor. The top of the door is sealed by our "spin tight" header seal, meaning that once closed, dust, dirt and particulate matter just don't get through. And, that's critical to environmentally controlled manufacturing.
Finally, let's talk about maintenance and down time, something no operation needs. DYNACO's revolutionary design and self re-inserting technology feature an array of exclusive, patented features. Utilizing a unique "soft curtain" design allows DYNACO to eliminate many dangerous and damage prone components found on conventional high speed doors. Wind ribs, coil cords, bottom bars and pressure switches are eliminated and replaced by a simple, reliable soft curtain. The Techno door also eliminates many other maintenance prone components such as belts, chains, brakes and limit switches through the use of state of the art electronics. A NEMA 4x direct drive motor with a five year warranty, variable frequency drive and absolute encoder provide your operation with maximum performance, flexibility and reliability. The self diagnostic Dynalogix control provides user friendly monitoring and diagnostic capability. As for downtime, our exclusive self reinsertion feature provides effortless and immediate resetting. Should a forklift or any other material handling device accidentally impact the door, it instantly breaks away from the door frame, and with the simple push of the activation button, automatically reinserts itself into the side guides. You are back up and running in seconds. No service calls, no downtime, just cycle after cycle, of consistent, productive operations.
With the DYNACO SlimLine Techno high performance door, maintaining indoor environmental control, with maximum productivity and reliability, while providing people and product with a perfectly safe operation, is "high-tech" at its finest.
