Rytec Introduces the World's First Maintenance-Free, High-Speed Rubber Door

JACKSON, Wis. -- Today's industrial facilities face constant exposure to dust, rocks, mud and the elements, as well as the rigors of everyday heavy use. In response to the demand for lower maintenance doors capable of surviving such harsh conditions,Rytec Corporation--a leading U.S. manufacturer of high-performance doors--has introduced the Powerhouse(TM) line of industrial, roll-up rubber doors. Made from the same durable material used to manufacture tires, these industrial-grade panels withstand the extreme demands of mining, mass transit, heavy equipment manufacturers, solid waste and recycling centers, and other industrial applications.

More Resilience and Less Maintenance
Although conventional metal doors can certainly protect large doorways, they require significant time to open and close, as well as considerable upkeep. The Powerhouse is a fast, safe and practically maintenance-free alternative, suitable for a wide range of exterior doorways.

The engineered styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) roll-up panel is virtually indestructible. It is designed without dangerous springs, high-maintenance counterbalance systems and wear parts, saving thousands on service costs. The patent-pending design and heavy-duty construction offer speed, wind- and pressure-resistance, and the tight seals required to protect critical equipment and operations.

In the case of an accidental hit, the Powerhouse SD distinguishes itself from conventional doors by releasing without damage and restoring to full operation with just the push of a button. Designed for the largest openings, the Powerhouse XL features Dual-Sync(TM) drives, with two motors providing the power necessary for rapid access and minimal interior exposure.

Ideal for large door openings in the harshest, grittiest environments imaginable, Powerhouse doors are engineered to survive the extreme conditions in train depots, bus garages, recycling sorting facilities, and earth mover storage buildings ... anywhere uptime is critical and service may be limited.
