The door is manufactured from a 3 mm ABS skin which retains its physical properties down to temperatures of minus 40°C, making it ideal for use in walk-in cold rooms. The low maintenance skin is impervious to moisture, acids, petroleum products, animal fats, rodent, insects and salt solutions.

The door’s insulation characteristics are enhanced by its high-density, non-CFC urethane foam core. The patented honeycomb framework and flexible urethane foam insulation provide optimum stability and superior soundproofing qualities.

Standard vision panels, constructed from 3 mm clear polycarbonate sheeting, are available in a number of custom sizes and are scratch-resistant and UBC compatible for enhanced visibility. Windows can be mounted in various positions on the door, and double pane vision panels can be installed for use in refrigerated areas.

To prevent excessive wear on the perimeter edges of the door, the door panels are bull nosed with a minimum radius of 8 mm. This reduces maintenance on the doors and the resultant seal ensures minimised energy flow between different areas for enhanced environmental control.

The Apex SR 9000 doors are mounted on an internal welded steel perimeter with corner gussets, using a CMI type ‘V’ gravity hinging system. Gasket keys are moulded in place and retain gasketing without the use of screws, rivets or other fasteners. High bumpers are also fitted to the door panel to further absorb impact from forklifttrucks and carts. This also reduces stress on hardware and mount assemblies.

Full technical advice on the best configuration for each application is provided by Apex Strip Curtains & Doors and its network of agents throughout South Africa. In addition, installation support and prompt delivery times ensure that customer productivity is not compromised.
