ALUMINUM SHUTTER DOORS TO MORGAN CORPORATION

April 23rd, 2013

Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc./Dover Roller Shutter USA provided aluminum roll up doors to Morgan Corporation in Brampton, Canada. Diamond worked with engineers from Morgan Corporation Headquarters in Morgantown, Pennsylvania to come up with a roll up door for the side of a Morgan box truck designed to deliver medical products in the Toronto area.

The aluminum roll up door provided access to a side compartment containing oxygen bottles and allowed the delivery person to get to the bottle without entering the body from the rear. It also provided easy access in restricted access areas which are often encountered on city streets or parking lots.

This project was a perfect example of Diamond assisting the manufacturer in the best design to fit the purpose. It was a coordinated effort between sales and engineering departments of both companies to provide the end user a perfect product.

   


WORK TRUCK SHOW 2013

March 18th, 2013

Diamond Roll Up Door Inc. exhibited at the 2013 Work Truck Show held in Indianapolis in conjunction with the NTEA Convention. The show floor showcases about 500,000 square feet of Class 1-8 vocational trucks and equipment. It is North America’s largest work truck event and allows end users, manufacturers, and suppliers the opportunity to interact and discuss current and future products. There were both Diamond and Dover Roller Shutters products on several vehicles at the show.

Several new/renewed contacts were made which should be beneficial for both the Diamond and Dover products. Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc. is unique in that it manufactures both the dry freight doors and the aluminum roller shutters providing a “one stop shop” for the truck manufacturers.

With more use of the aluminum roller shutters for special applications Diamond, under the Dover Roller Shutters brand, has the most options to offer to the industry. Dover currently has four different type doors (different slat options) for exterior applications, with multiple bottom rails, numerous locking systems, and face and “behind the wall” installation options. With 3D engineering capability, Diamond’s engineering department will assist you in the design of the perfect product for your end user. The Dover products come in both an anodized or powder coated finish. The powder coat finish provides a much stronger finish than wet paint and allows the door to blend into the vehicle.

Please give Diamond a call and let us easily assist you. Enjoy the pictures from the show.

Diamond Roll-Up Door announces a new Composite Panel Roll-Up Door – the Diamond Lite Door

January 16th, 2012

The Diamond Lite Door uses panels made from a unique closed cell, lightweight composite product, manufactured with cross-linked polymer foam and fiberglass, that offers high specific strength and toughness. The new Panel:

  • Is 20% lighter than plywood
  • Is 35% lighter then steel clad composites
  • Does not absorb water
  • Does not laminate or peel
  • Is highly impact resistant

Over time where wood roll-up doors swell, crack, break or jam when impacted the Diamond Lite Door will maintain its operation and integrity. This durability significantly reduces maintenance costs.

The light weight panels provide easy operation and the lower weight of the door in comparison to wood or other composite materials doors assists with gas economy.

The Diamond Lite Door can be manufactured in both Recessed and Flush Mount Hardware configurations.
