Manufacturing materials are selected from our state-of-art C.A.D cutting list and assembles as per our factory production control procedure.
First, the lath is measured and slide together. If the customer has specified the additional extra of a hood then the top three lath is reserved to ensure the lath smoothly coils around the barrel. Once End-locked the door is then rolled together in bundles.
Next, the flags and guides are manufactured to match the specifications in the product drawing. The flags size and thickness can differ due to personal customer requests or due to the size of the motor and safety brake. The guides can also have additional extras such as bullet locks or caps.
After, the engineer measures and manufactures the barrel that holds the lath in place. The barrel is either fitted with a tubular motor or an anti-fall safety brake, on larger applications three phase direct drive motors are used. The motor rotates the barrel both clockwise and anti-clockwise depending on whether the door is being opened or closed.
If the customer has requested powder-coating, then the whole door is coated in the specified colour. Our workshop is fully equip with a powder-coating facility and curing oven, this enables a quick turn around but most importantly we can manage quality control.
