Megadoor for Heavy Industry and Steel Mills

Doors used in the steel and foundry industries are exposed to dirt, heat, moisture etc. Vehicles and material are passing the door many times a day and any waiting for the door to open or due to a non-reliable door operation costs money.
Megadoor systems have been installed at plants worldwide and have proven extremely successful thanks to the extraordinary durability and reliability.

All Megadoor systems are specifically engineered for the particular application being considered, and are installed and maintained by local firms who specialize in servicing the steel mill industry. The Megadoor is available with the Flex-a-way feature to reduce the incident rate of door damage and the resulting costly downtime and repairs. With Megadoor, steel mills and heavy industry can expect a cost-effective installation and low life-cycle cost.

Megadoor has supplied door solutions to the steel mills and heavy industry worldwide since 1983.
Megadoor solutions are preferred because they:

  • Are highly reliable – you can rely on the door to work and not disrupt operation.
  • Take less space in the building, do not ‘steal’ space from production, and are cost-effective in operation.
  • Require no bottom rails.
  • Withstand high wind loads.
