DBCI announced today the launch of a redesigned roll-up door,
which features a corrugated drum. This new, industry-leading design delivers improved
door alignment on all light- and heavy-duty roll-up door applications, enabling
the corrugated sheet to roll up faster and with tighter, superior control.
Available for self-storage and commercial applications—including
wind-rated and low headroom projects—the new design enables the corrugated door
sheet to fit plumb into the drum, securing it tightly on the barrel. This enhancement
provides smoother cycle operation and prevents sheet misalignment over time.
Felt strips adhered around the barrel and down the sheet on
self-storage doors minimize metal-on-metal friction, thus reducing noise when
opening and closing. On commercial doors, the corrugated panel provides
complete, full-color coverage around the door axle and interior drums for a
seamless look. This design improves the aesthetics when the door is viewed from
the inside of a building as compared to the colorless, exposed flat sheet
continuously looking for opportunities to add value to our products and better
serve our customers,” said DBCI Vice President, Jeff Lloyd. “This innovative
design was developed with our customers’ needs in mind and continues DBCI’s
legacy of re-defining industry standards.”
