DBCI’s commercial doors are manufactured with hard, Grade E steel ensuring strength and durability. A siliconized polyester finish replaces older polyester paint finishes, which are recognizable by severe chalking and fading from direct contact with UV rays. DBCI steel curtain roll-up doors are coated with a silicon polyester paint highly resistant to UV light rays allowing some colors a warranty of up to 25 years.
A.C.E. Guides System
The A.C.E. (Advanced Curtain Engagement) guide system has been designed to benefit DBCI’s customers. Some of the benefits include universal mounting options, increased durability, excellent performance and ease of installation. Through countless hours in the design room, DBCI has created one of the most advanced rolling sheet door guide systems in the industry.
DBCI’s commercial door axles and drums are manufactured with industrial-grade steel. The door drums are designed and engineered specifically for commercial application to ensure product integrity, long life and high-capacity use. Steel ball bearings are preferable to nylon or plastic bushings, which can disintegrate under heavy use.
Constructed of a translucent flexible polycarbonate, the 5″ x 17″ vision panel allows light entry and provides outside visibility. The white 20-gauge frame is pop-riveted and is normally installed approximately 55″ from the floor. The location and number of panels per door is limited.
Springs are the most critical mechanical component of a steel curtain roll-up door. For maximum reliability, DBCI uses only oil-tempered torsion-type springs for its commercial grade steel curtain roll up doors. Coordinating the design of a roll-up door with the proper spring assembly ensures longer and more durable use with minimal maintenance required. In independent tests, DBCI’s commercial-grade steel curtain roll-up door exceeded 40,000 openings and closings before any maintenance was required. Although there is no such thing as a maintenance-free door, at DBCI we engineer our roll-up doors to be maintenance-simple: easily visible for inspection and accessibility.
Wind Load Certification
Fueled by the constant changes in local and national building codes, as well as increasing insurance costs, choosing a door with a validated wind certification can dramatically reduce maintenance and replacement costs. The in-house wind certification facility enables us to manufacture doors to the highest standards. DBCI’s commercial door 5000 Series, wind certified doors are designed to meet stringent building codes in coastal regions and Florida.
Commercial Door Selections
DBCI’s doors are manufactured with hard, grade E steel, ensuring strength and durability. A siliconized polyester finish replaces older polyester paint finishes, which are recognizable by severe chalking and fading caused by UV rays. This innovative finish has a warranty of up to 20 years.
Used to open and close the door this functional bar should have a clean, attractive finish that enhances the doors’ appearance. DBCI’s bottom bars are constructed of 6063-T6 aluminum, which looks and wears well. Our vinyl weather seal is replaceable, which means that damage, wear and weather do not necessarily require placement of the entire door.
Tension Set Brackets
Tension set brackets control how easily the door opens when unlocked. Older doors lack tension adjusters and require a door technician to readjust the spring tension. Fortunately, DBCI’s innovations in tension set brackets make adjusting roll-up doors easier, safer and faster. Facility maintenance personnel can adjust the self-storage doors themselves in as little as five minutes and never have to take the spring tension into their hands.
The latch keeps the door closed and the storage unit’s content safe. DBCI’s stainless steel latches and bolts provide additional strength, security and durability. The Apex latch maintains these characteristics while adding a more contemporary look to your door. Our latches are constructed with limited pry points, double padlock or cylinder lock compatibility as well as the ability to operate with magnetic alarm systems.
Springs are the mechanical part of the roll-up door. The best roll-up doors are maintenance-simple: visible for inspection, accessible for upkeep and manufactured by DBCI.
