Melbourne-based industrial door manufacturer MTI Qualos is a major proponent of PVC, and has been working with the material since 1970. The company offers a full range of engineered PVC products, with strip, swing and high-speed roller doors for both internal and external use.
One of the key benefits of using PVC in industrial doors is the safety aspect: quite simply, the more you can see, the safer you are.
The flexible nature of the material also has a major part to play, particularly in the company’s ranges of swing doors, which offer practical and economical draft exclusion and maintain temperature control between adjoining areas.
Two grades of PVC material are offered, with 5mm-thick material used for medium-duty designs and 7mm-thick PVC in heavy-duty types. There is also a choice between steel and aluminium for the frames, allowing the company to produce cost-effective fit-for-purpose swing doors for both industrial and retail environments.
The company’s flexible "See-Thru" strip doors offer economical solutions for shops, workrooms, food processing facilities, and even supermarket display fridges. Made from multiple grades of PVC from 1 to 5mm, depending on the application, the overlap design offers an effective barrier against dust and drafts, helping to provide efficient temperature control.
PVC also plays a major role in the company’s range of high-speed roller doors, with “See-Thru” panels featuring throughout the range. The ultimate incarnation, though, is the S800 heavy-duty external door.
Ideally suited to manufacturing and food industries, the S800 features a tough, 4mm thick, fully transparent PVC panel that covers almost the full width and height of the door. It has an operating speed of up to 800mm/s, cutting opening time to minimise climatic impact.
The S800 comes with a microprocessor-based controller, with options for inductive loops, microwave sensors, pushbuttons, infra-red sensors, remote control and a safety interlock.
