Doors for Extreme Environments

However extreme, you can rely on our mechanisms to keep working.

Mechanisms for Doors in Extreme Environments

Hot and cold, as well as dust and extreme humidity can be punishing on moving parts, so any automated mechanisms that are required to operate in these extreme environment need to be tough.

At the time of writing, our door mechanisms are running without issue in the Saudi Arabian Desert and clocked 63°C as well as Rothera in Antartica at a steady -20°C. We like to think these are good examples of our mechanisms operating in extreme conditions.

Our doors are all designed for each specific project, but generally feature:

  • Overhead or Under-floor mechanisms
  • Electro-Pneumatic Automations
  • Fully Programmable Control Panels
  • Locks and Latches can be interfaced with most other types of your choice
  • Hydraulic or Air Damping
  • Electronic monitoring for easy sequence tracing
  • Air Power-pack. Single phase 240v 13 amp supply
  • Frugal power consumption only using electricity when the door moves even with a big door
  • Choice of electronic signals. microwaves, push buttons etc
  • Interlocking, interlinking two or more door sets together
  • Low energy Safety or full BSEN16005
