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.
