DYNACO Introduces SlimLine High Speed Roll Up Doors
DYNACO Introduces SlimLine High Speed Roll Up Doors for Interior Environmental Control And Safety In Food, 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 SlimLine FOOD roll up door is designed to control interior door openings for FOOD processing, beverage or cleanroom environments, where partial or full wash down, low profile, tight seal, fast and easy cleaning are required. These key features, combined with many other standard DYNACO high performance components, will keep your facility productive, safe, clean and efficient.
Let's talk about environmental separation first. DYNACO high speed doors open and close quickly, quietly and reliably at speeds up to 48 inches per second. The high speed operation provides maximum productivity, as well as excellent temperature and pressure control. In addition to high speed operation, DYNACO's patented bead technology and side-guide system provides a virtually perfect seal. The unique and patented system minimizes air exchange to differences in pressure up to 0.82 pounds per square foot. This means airborne pathogens, bio-aerosol emissions, odor, dust, or other contaminants are greatly reduced. And, that's critical to USDA hygienically and environmentally controlled manufacturing.
Second, as with most FOOD or beverage manufacturing environments, partial or full wash downs are a must for all equipment, including high performance doors. The DYNACO FOOD high performance door is available with all stainless steel components, USDA/FDA compliant door fabric, and a NEMA 4x waterproof motor and controls. The door has a simple and small profile with easy to remove side guides, so washdown and cleaning are simple and extremely effective, assuring you of a hygienically clean door, in record time.
Now let's talk about safety: Fast paced environments, and tight production schedules, can increase the potential for accidents. All upward acting doors have the potential for four types of accidents: lateral, downward, secondary and entrapment. Only DYNACO can safely prevent all four types of accidents with our patented "soft curtain" technology. There are no rigid bars or stiffeners in a DYNACO soft curtain that can harm a person or damage products. In addition, a standard infrared photo sensor system provides protection for anyone or anything that is under the door by instantly reversing the travel. The soft bottom edge technology also incorporates a sealed fail-safe self-reversing sensor that reverses the door if it should ever should come in contact with people or product.
In the event all safety systems fail or are bypassed, our exclusive Soft Curtain System protects pedestrians by eliminating dangerous rigid components. Our optional Emergency Egress Curtain is designed to meet OSHA requirement 1910.36 and NFPA 101, which protects your workers by allowing egress in the event of emergency. As you can see the SlimLine FOOD is the ultimate in safety.
Fourth, the DYNACO FOOD roll up door is designed with the absolute minimal number of working parts, which virtually eliminates dangerous and maintenance prone components. The super slim profile and low clearance requirements greatly reduce the opportunity for side frame damage and allow additional room for material handling equipment to maneuver. Our state of the art drive system includes a direct drive motor with an industry leading five year warranty, variable frequency drive and absolute encoder. And our user friendly, self diagnostic Dynalogix controller makes troubleshooting adjustments simple and fast. The Slimline FOOD industrial door is literally a cream puff to maintain!
Finally, should a forklift or any other materials handling device accidentally dislodge the DYNACO FOOD door, it instantly breaks away from the door frame, and with the push of the activation button, automatically reinserts itself into the side guides and you are back up and running in seconds. No service calls, no special training or tools, no downtime, just cycle after cycle of consistent, productive operations.
With the DYNACO FOOD high speed door, maintaining environmental control, with hygienically clean and safe operations, is a piece of cake.
