Doors from a climatic perspective.

In 2010, Canadian-based Gold Corp Inc. mining company was looking at door alternatives for the truck maintenance shop at its newest facility, located in Zacatecas State, Mexico. With a projected mine life of 20 years, Gold Corp was looking at products that would meet its needs from a climatic perspective while offering long-term maintenance-free operation.

Initially there had been some thought that doors would be unnecessary in this subtropical climate, but further study revealed that, due to its altitude the location experienced a wide variety of temperature and humidity. In addition, the desert conditions created possibilities of significant dust infiltration.

 

Benefits:

  • With its double-layered fabric and positive seals, Megadoor ensures complete atmospheric isolation while in the closed position, thereby reducing energy costs and eliminating dust infiltration.
  • The translucent fabric allows natural light in, reducing electrical costs and increasing worker comfort and productivity.
  • Fast and reliable service due to the innovativeMegadoor design.

Challenge and solution

Challenges:

  • Reliability – With the mine site far from any subcontractor locations, Gold Corp needed a door with a proven track record of efficiency and minimal maintenance.
  • Environmental Control – Frequent winds stir up dust, which can be problematic for the extensive mechanical maintenanceof haul trucks.

Megadoor provided:

  • 12 Vertical lifting truck access doors 42' × 30' (12.9 m × 9.2 m) with a translucent fabric option.
