Megadoor for Waste & Recycling

Access doors at waste and recycling plants are expected to open and close without fail dozens of times per day. Serving applications like sewage treatment, waste classification and incineration, they must withstand dirty, gritty operating conditions while ensuring safe access and contributing to a good working environment.
