Reliability, safety and productivity – ...

Reliability, safety and productivity –
Megadoor® answers all your needs
The challenge is to provide doors that can quickly open and close
dozens of times each day – at the same time they withstand corrosive,
dirty environments, high-wind conditions and extreme temperatures.
These are just the operational considerations. In addition,
doors must fulfill a range of other important expectations:
• Design and function – offering a cost-effective solution to
functional and architectural demands, and the engineering restraints
of existing building structures, while accommodating
larger and larger mining vehicles.
• Energy and ergonomy – minimize heat loss (or gain) and provide
a viable working environment for demanding tasks, despite
high winds and extreme temperatures. The choice of a translucent
door fabric helps minimize the carbon footprint and provide
natural ambient light in the indoor working environment.
• Safety and efficiency – ensure safe operating conditions
and minimal maintenance demands. The safety level is high
– built-in safety monitoring system and door arrestors
automatically prevent free-fall.
Few suppliers can meet all these demands, and even fewer can do
so when the door opening is very large. Fortunately, the Megadoor
vertical lifting fabric door can answer your access needs, regardless
of door opening size, as well as fully satisfy all your requirements
– from accessibility and economy, to safety and comfort. And
Megadoor’s skilled, experienced engineers are ready to support you
throughout the process, from site analysis and engineering specification
to installation, commissioning and service support.
Suitable for extreme environments
There are no more demanding environments than a Wash Bay at a
mine. And the Megadoor is specifically designed to handle such an
extreme environment. We provide our standard ‘Wash Bay Package’
which includes: sealed limit boxes; motor covers; NEMA 4X (corrosion-
resistant) control panels; and corrosion-resistant materials.
(The NEMA 4X corresponds to the European standard IP56)
Cost-effective uptime is the key
The Megadoor vertical lifting fabric door was originally designed
for industrial environments requiring very large door apertures
and frequent openings, with doors exposed to high wind loads,
temperature extremes and harsh environments.
It has served successfully in these conditions for over 30 years,
and has proved itself again and again in the mining industry. All
Megadoor mining doors use corrosion-resistant components with
few moving parts, and come with the patented Megadoor lifting
belt system, which needs no lubrication and very little maintenance.
A Megadoor solution can last the life of your mine.
