Single Sliding Door without rail - The perfect choice for truck traffic

 

When choosing a door for mesh walls, there are several parameters to take into account. What should the door be used for? What function should it have? In what environment should the door be located? What safety features are needed?

Here you will find information about what is important to consider when choosing a guard door and when it is appropriate to choose a single sliding door without a rail. When handling large goods, a single sliding door without rail is the ideal alternative. The door has no top rail and thus no obstacles on top - so no upper limits.

Suitable for most environments

The environment in which the machine safety door is to be installed is important when making the decision, because there are doors which are not suitable for all types of surroundings. For example, a humid environment can affect the condition of the door.

Therefore, a sliding gate with a ballbearing-guided rail should be avoided in such environments. However, it is an excellent choice for businesses with a lot of forklift truck traffic - especially when the trucks require a couple of meters in opening width and height.
