Flex-Back panel helps reduce
damage to warehouse doors
Dec 28, 2009 10:17 AM
Door panel damage from forklift impact is one of the most frequent and costly maintenance problems in busy warehouse, manufacturing, and processing environments. The rugged Flex-Back panel by APS Resource helps eliminate bottom door panel damage by flexing upon impact and returning to its normal operating position.
The Flex-Back panel is constructed of a high-impact polymer skin and flexible tube frame that gives the panel its flexibility and strength. This durability helps eliminate damage to bottom door panels and reduce door maintenance costs.
Lower panels often suffer damage when pallets are shoved into doors or clipped by the masts of passing forklifts when the door is open. Damaged lower panels can also make doors difficult to open and are a strain on dockworkers’ backs.
Replacing most industrial sectional bottom door panels, the Flex-Back panel installs easily using standard/existing door hardware. This panel comes standard with an easy-grip lifting handle for effortless operation. The complete perimeter gasket seals give the door superior thermal properties to save on energy.
The Flex-Back panel is available in the most common sectional door sizes: 8'-2", 9'-2", and 10'-2".
