Original Press Release:
Rite-Hite Corporation Introduces the Rite-Flex® Sectional Door: the Only Industrial Door that Allows Users to Configure the Door to Match Their Unique Operating Environment
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (May 15, 2009) - Rite-Hite Corporation introduces the Rite-Flex® sectional door - the industry's only modular sectional door that allows users to custom-design the door to match their unique operating environment for improved productivity and safety - along with maintenance and energy savings.
Flexible and impactable panels serve as the core design element of every Rite-Flex door. Yet at the same time, users can complement the flexible panels with specially engineered panels and/or slats in key areas of the door to allow daylight into the building and/or to facilitate ventilation. As an alternative to traditional sectional doors, the ability to design a Rite-Flex door to suit the precise needs of virtually any operation improves:
Door uptime and dock productivity: With panels that flex up to 12 inches without damage, the Rite-Flex door easily withstands repeated incidental bumps by forklifts and their loads. The flexible panel significantly minimizes the need to replace damaged door panels, or the entire door. The result is increased door uptime and dock productivity, in addition to decreased maintenance costs.
Safety and energy savings: Configuring the Rite-Flex door with Day-Lite(TM) translucent slats allows natural light in during the day for a brighter interior loading dock, which leads to improved safety. The translucent panels also reduce dependency on artificial light for extra energy savings. The slat is six inches high and stretches the full width of the door to optimize available daylight.
Employee comfort, security and cleanliness: A Rite-Flex door with ventilation screen panels is ideal when dock doors are to remain closed for a variety of reasons, including compliance with closed-door policies, or to ensure security and cleanliness. The panels facilitate airflow for improved employee comfort and air quality since fresh air and light is allowed in. At the same time, unauthorized personnel, bugs, and debris are kept out. Two choices are available for the panel's hinged screen cover: clear acrylic, which allows natural light into the area, or white thermoplastic. Ventilation panels are available in heights of 12, 18, or 30 inches with lengths of 52 or 80 inches.
The highly durable Rite-Flex door is available in two- or three-inch thicknesses, and overall sizes up to 12 feet wide and 14 feet high. The door incorporates a complete perimeter seal at the top, bottom and sides. It also includes seals between the interlocking panels for optimal energy efficiency. For ease of installation and lifetime maintenance, the Rite-Flex door incorporates standard, off-the-shelf mounting and attachment hardware.
The Rite-Flex door evolved from Rite-Hite's unique GX-4000 Universal Panel technology. The flexible and impactable panel was initially offered only as a bottom panel to solve problems associated with door impacts. The technology later became the core design element of the Rite-Flex door. The GX-4000 panel itself can also be retrofitted to fit virtually any sectional door.
