Choose high-performance doors for long life expectancy

When you invest in high-performance doors, you get systems and technology that deliver reliable performance all day, every day. That’s because they’re built for longer life expectancy than conventional doors.

Many Rytec fabric doors have been in service for more than a decade – and are still going strong. Here are just four examples:

  • A Fast-Seal® door shipped in 1996 has reliably delivered more than 9.3 million cycles
  • Two Fast-Fold® doors installed in 2002 have more than 4.8 and 6.4 million cycles, respectively
  • A Turbo-Seal® SR door has withstood more than 4 million cycles, and
  • Two PredaDoor® NXT® doors at a food processing plant have delivered more than 2.2 million and 2.9 million cycles, respectively.

 

The Difference Is in the Details

Rytec’s high-performance doors are built with materials that are designed to hold up for millions of cycles:

  • They’re engineered to last. They are designed with a limited number of wear parts, which means less maintenance and repair over the life of the door.
  • They are built with tough, durable materials, such as puncture-resistant, polymer-impregnated monofilament polyester fabric.
  • Quick-Set™ Break-Away™ tabs allow the wireless bottom bar to release in either direction without damaging the door.
  • The variable speed AC drives used in Rytec doors provide soft acceleration and deceleration to reduce wear on door parts.

 

Rytec offers a wide variety of high-performance doors for many types of demanding applications:

Rytec Fast-Seal

The Door That Revolutionized the Industry

The Fast-Seal® high-performance door was the first high-speed industrial door that could take a hit without suffering damage. The Break-Away™ bottom bar along with the patented System II™ counterbalance and tension system give it dependability and durability that keep it opening and closing reliably, with minimal downtime and maintenance.


Rytec Fast-Fold

Doors with a Distinct ‘Air’ of Dependability

The Fast-Fold® pneumatic door runs on standard shop air with very few moving parts, making it an economical alternative to impact doors and strip curtains. The air-operated door offers simple controls that ensure dependable operation and pneumatic cylinders that provide years of trouble-free operation.


Rytec PredaDoor NXT

North America's Leading High-Speed Fabric Door

The PredaDoor® NXT® door features a tight perimeter seal, advanced wireless safety system and durable components that provide unsurpassed performance and reliability. Paired with the System 4® Door Controller, the NXT® Quick-Set™ repair system allows the door to be easily reset without tools to minimize door downtime.
