DIRECT SAFE DRIVE OPERATOR, TORONTO
This door was reaching it's spring life once or twice per year due to high usage at an automotive dealer. Our solution involved installing a direct safe drive (spring-less) operator to reduce future service costs and increase the speed and efficiency of the door. Additional details include: Digital Overhead Door Control Panel with L.E.D. read-out, Wireless Safety Edge, 6' Light Curtain mounted inside the tracks (acts as a secondary safety device for any object left within the door), Nylon Rollers and Non-Rotating 3/16 Cables.
An Enbridge rebate was given for this door efficiency upgrade. Also, instead of consistently replacing the springs, they can expect their return on investment (ROI) in just over TWO years!
TRACTOR TRAILER DOOR, ETOBICOKE
This was definitely a one-of-a-kind installation! Rytec's PredaDoor NXT 74"w x 84"h installed inside a permanent tractor trailer outside a food distribution centre. Our client uses this as extra storage, however, needed to ensure that it was temperature-controlled to preserve the food. A full-width vision panel and a Pathwatch Safety System with 2 sets of photo cells were also installed. For added safety and protection, (4) 36"h bollards also surround the door frames.
Does your rental unit provide all the necessary equipment you need to run your business efficiently? This customer needed to add a loading dock to their shipping area but didn't want to leave it behind if they were to re-locate. An Edge of Dock was the perfect solution as it can be removed if needed.
Style and functionality. This wooden Man Door was upgraded to an aluminum glass door and finished with cladding. Along with this added curb appeal, panic hardware and an electric strike were installed for card access and security control.
Material-Handling at it's finest. This Burlington facility was in need of a device that would help lift large, heavy sacks of potatoes over the hoppers in order to be emptied. Our solution was to install this free-standing Monorail Crane to help improve efficiency.
Thanks for the submission, Jay!
This Multi-Plex Door had seen better days. It was up to Josh, Ilija and Justin to bring it back to life. Originally fabricated and installed in 1962, the bottom section of the blade had rotted due to the harsh environment it was in. Thankfully, this door was able to be repaired, rather than replaced, cutting back on the cost significantly. Custom metal was formed and sheeting was fabricated. Furthermore, the inside of the door was rubberized and undercoated to help prevent rusting and a new coat of green paint was added to the exterior.
This fabrication comes to us from our Hamilton Cranes Parts and Service Manager, Ida. Compensating sheaves were created for a material-handling company in Memramcook, New Brunswick. A sheave is a pulley with a grooved wheel designed to hold a belt, wire rope or rope. The grooved wheel spins inside the frame, allowing the wire or rope to move freely and minimize wear and/or abrasion on the cable itself. These sheaves were designed for a 1/2" groove rope and 16" diameter with 5.5" bore.
"Just a note to thank the guys for doing an amazing job on reinstalling our overhead door.
They were complete professionals and did a perfect job in a short period of time." Domenic
