Original Press Release:

HarshGuard Roll-Up Door Combats Caustic and Corrosive Environments - and Wins!

(Pewaukee, WI) In its mission to provide the fast entry of a roll-up door that can withstand high wind loads and work in extreme harsh conditions like food processing plants, washing stations and degreaseing units at an affordable price, Goff's Enterprises introduces their new HarshGuard rollup door. Now more doorways can have the access protection under harsh conditions.

This door has a unique tensioning system, which enables the door to maintain a seal under gusts up to 70 mph on a 10' x 12' door and prevents the curtain from blowing outof its guides. The door is also suitable for areas within the facility that have high positive/negative pressures. The HarshGuard can also be supplied without the wind-load tensioning system for interior room separation.

Standard on the door is a totally enclosed motor than can take the door speed up to 50"/sec. for fast entry and exit. While more costly doors can go faster, for a standard 8' x 10' doorway the difference in room exposure time is less than a second.

The door is responsive as it is fast. A progressive tensioning device ensures smooth operation on the door's up and down stroke while offering enhanced security.

Though the HarshGuard enables rapid traffic access within facilities the door is also built to withstand the rigors of the outdoors. Enhanced door mechanics resists contamination, ice build up, and harsh environment factors, which can hamper operation of traditional doors. Non-corrosive materials and fasteners are used in order to withstand caustic and corrosive solutions used in food processing, wash downs and industrial applications.

The door also has an active edge that senses objects in the path of the lowering door and causes the door to reverse direction upon contact.

The motor and control enables the HarshGuard to have a responsive safety edge, to work with a variety of actuation devices and to operate in conjunction with the master control boxes, hands free operation, photo cells and other control devices.

The HarshGuard roll-up door has an array of high-quality features that enables the Goff's roll-up door to provide service in rugged applications. Built in to these doors are...
-- Rugged custom extruded side guide tracks captures stainless steel garage-type rollers. With the combination of the track and the stiffeners and the unique tensioning device the wind cannot blow the door out of the door frame.
-- Stainless steel hardware including mounting brackets, grommets, lower
pocket chain and fasteners.
-- EPDM weatherseal along vertical edges.
-- Fiberglass protrusion tubes (horizontal stiffeners) bend if loaded - won't
break or kink.
-- The 18-oz. vinyl door is rot, tear and mildew resistant, standing up to the
harshest weather.
-- All seams are double-locked stitched for extra strength.
-- Double baffle under the valence prevents pests from entering.
