DMF opens the door for heavy industry


The high-speed door is not only useful for controlling temperature and dust in food and warehouse applications, but also for mining and heavy industrial applications.

With increased emphasis on environmental and occupational health and safety control, DMF International can supply and install small or large doors in applications that require a highly durable design.

Mine sites are generally quite remote, usually in hot, arid areas.

Workshops, and critical spares warehouses ideally can have high-speed doors that will enable comfort for workers, and protect critical spares from dust contamination. They can even be used in some underground applications.

DMF manufactures rapid action doors in Australia, and also is the exclusive agent for the Efaflex specialised range of high speed doors from Germany.

All doors are custom made to size and have safety features as standard, to ensure safe operation and control. The door panel material can be in either reinforced PVC, acrylic glass, thermal PU sections, or extruded aluminium.

Depending on the model, they can have wind design loading of up to 170km/h.

BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Xstrata are among major mining companies using the DMF high speed doors.
