Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City is proud to offer a top-of-the-line strip doors. Strip doors have a wide range of energy-saving commercial/industrial applications. For example, these strip doors can be used both inside and outside to cut the loss of heated or cooled air. Since strip doors push open and close instantly, unlike ordinary doors, air transfer is minimized and utility bills are reduced.
In addition, traffic can enter and exit quickly and easily. Strip doors also provide an effective barrier against birds and insects, dust debris, drafts, smoke, fumes and noise. The annoying sound of operating machinery and equipment is greatly reduced.
Safety is another important reason for specifying strip doors. Colored vinyl strips are positioned as aisle guides to prevent vehicles from hitting the sides of doorways. There are no sharp edges, since the strips are extruded with carefully contoured edges.
Features of Strip Doors
The PVC strips are transparent, non-toxic and smooth edged for safety and retain their flexibility to -20F or -40F depending on the model. Applications for strip doors indoors or outdoors are limited only by your imagination.
Tips to Guide Your Selection of Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City Strip Doors
When selecting a Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City strip door, consider the variety of widths, thicknesses and percentage of overlap. Mounted strips hang in a concave/convex overlap pattern that permits interlocking to form a good barrier seal. Narrower thinner strips with less overlap are easier for personnel to penetrate. However, since all thicknesses are relatively easy to pass through, choose the next heavier gauge material or the next larger overlap to assure the best results.
Wider, heavier strips with greater overlap provide more resistance in larger openings. Use full overlap when strips are to be used as a sound barrier. A strip door will not stop strong winds or handle extreme negative pressure conditions, but they are useful in reducing the effect of light breezes. Heavier strips with greater overlap must be used if wind is a major factor. In windy areas, or under severe noise conditions, the use of two or more strip doors in sequence will form dead space barriers.
