New High-Speed Door from Rite-Hite Doors Raises Industry Bar for Safety, Cleanliness

MILWAUKEE-The Protecdor® Clean Power Door from Rite-Hite Doors Inc., has raised the bar for safety. The door's advanced Soft-Edge(TM) Safety System helps protect personnel and products from injury and damage by replacing the hard bottom edge of traditional high-speed doors with a soft, impactable design. This unique design is combined with stainless steel components, a heat-sealed curtain, and a tight seal around the opening to meet the necessary cleanliness and safety standards for clean room applications. The Protecdor Clean is designed to protect both pedestrians and products, making the Protecdor Clean the safest clean room door available.

The Protecdor Clean features a white FDA-compliant curtain fabric that is heat-sealed for a smooth, cleanable surface. To clean the curtain within the sideframes, a quick-release hinged sideframe cover is provided. A foot-release system opens the sideframes easily, with no need to lift heavy steel covers. Plus, the stainless steel sideframes and header assembly, combined with a washdown motor and NEMA 4X control box are designed for harsh environments.

While the most apparent benefit the Protecdor Clean offers is its soft-edge design, many other safety features incorporated into the door's design either help prevent accidents or minimize damage after an accident occurs. One such feature is Rite-Hite Doors' patented magnetic tensioning system, which allows the door to release when impacted from any angle. In addition, an internal sensing system immediately stops the door's movement upon impact, without the use of batteries, coil cords or external electronics, which are all susceptible to impact damage. To help prevent impacts from occurring, two thru-beam reversing photo eyes constantly monitor the opening.

Additional Protecdor Clean features include exclusive internal pressure stays that bolster the rugged, lightweight curtain against the forces of positive and negative air pressure without the use of wind bars. The Protecdor Clean has no rigid bars across the opening that can be damaged upon impact. Every aspect of the Protecdor Clean is designed to be highly durable and extremely low maintenance. After an impact, the door reattaches quickly and easily. In less than one minute, an operator can have the door running again without the use of tools. Since there is nothing to bend or break, the door offers an exceptionally low lifetime cost.

In addition to its limited 1-year parts and labor warranty, Rite-Hite Doors also offers an exclusive 1-year money back guarantee with the Protecdor Clean.

Rite-Hite Doors, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis., is a leading manufacturer of high performance doors designed for increased safety and productivity and reduced operating costs.
