DIRECT SAFE DRIVE OPERATOR, TORONTO - IN PROGRESS
This door was reaching it's spring life once or twice per year due to high usage. Therefore, causing unnecessary replacements. Our solution will involve installing a direct safe drive operator to reduce future service costs while increasing the overall efficiency of the door. An Enbridge rebate is given for this upgrade simply by increasing the rate of the door operation. Instead of consistently replacing the springs, our customer can expect to see their return on investment 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.
It was time for a hook block to be replaced at a mining facility in Toronto. Custom machined sheaves, bearings and a new hook assembly were installed. Heavy materials can now be confidently transported within the facility.
Various truck types entered this loading dock area with constant exposure to inclement weather. This caused water infiltration as there was a slight decline approach to the dock. There was also little clearance space due to the existing overhead canopy as there was little headroom. Our solution was to install custom inflatable shelters with a side-mounted blower (due to limited headroom).
We can't stress enough that Overhead Doors are not intended for personnel use. This customer required a stop device to prevent the doors from potentially closing on someone. As this door was too old for add-on brakes, custom-built extended handles were welded to the door frame with a bar that protrudes into the opening, preventing the door from coming down when fully opened. Limit switches were also added to the handles and when engaged, power to the operator is cut-off.
"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
