Megadoor, the world-leading ASSA ABLOY brand focusing on solutions for exceptional access needs within specific industry segments including mining, has released a new white paper.
Megadoor is a world-leading ASSA ABLOY brand focusing on solutions for exceptional access needs within specific industry segments such as aviation, shipyard, mining and waste and recycling. As a leading manufacturer of doors for oversized, unusual and difficult applications since 1971, Megadoor manufactures vertical lifting fabric doors for use in a range of mining applications, including doors for truck, weld, tyre and pit shops.
Doors for mining wash bays, maintenance and shop facilities
The challenge in the mining industry is to provide doors that will withstand harsh, dirty environments. Additionally, many mining operations have added new, larger trucks to their mining truck fleet, which require larger door openings for access to wash bay and maintenance facilities. Traditional larger doors have been rendered inoperable under high-wind conditions and require considerable maintenance due to the corrosive environment.
Corrosive-resistant mine doors
Available in almost any size, our highly durable and reliable Megadoor mine doors can withstand harsh, dirty environments and are operable in high-wind conditions. All mining doors are constructed with corrosive-resistant components with few moving parts and come with the Megadoor lifetime-guarantee lifting belt system, which requires no lubrication and ensures virtually zero maintenance for the doors.
The structural design of the Megadoor ensures smooth operation even under high-wind conditions and gives an excellent seal, virtually eliminating air and dust infiltration.
Vertical-lifting fabric doors
The vertical lifting fabric doors are specifically engineered for the particular application being installed and maintained by local firms who specialise in servicing the mining industry.
Mine doors for harsh environments
Megadoor provides a solution for mining engineers, architects and the truck maintenance team through an overhead door that requires no ground tracks and is suited to extreme conditions, providing a reliable performance and reducing construction and operating costs.
The optional translucent fabric door material also allows a high degree of natural light into the maintenance facility and greatly improves the working environment. Designed to provide in excess of one million cycles, the Megadoor continues to operate even if damaged.
Industrial heavy equipment doors and systems
Megadoor’s System 800 and 1,000 door systems have been specifically designed to cope in harsh environments, providing durability, tightness, operational reliability and minimum maintenance requirements for the heavy industry.
For extremely severe environments, the door systems are available in extra corrosion-proof versions. To cope with openings exposed to intense traffic, System 800 is available in a high-speed version.
The Megadoor craneway door system is designed for openings that depend on reliability due to critical or unusual circumstances. Because of the extensive use of aluminum and polyester, the craneway system is extremely lightweight, and is designed for a very tight fit with weather seals on both sides of the vertical guides and on the bottom beam.
There are virtually no limitations to the height, width and configuration of a Megadoor. Size restrictions are limited only to what is practical, and because of the company’s custom engineering capabilities, each and every Megadoor craneway system is specifically built to fit the need, whatever the size or configuration.
