Recognizing a window of opportunity to make a great door even better, Rytec Corporation has introduced new windows with LEXANTM sheets for its Spiral® FV® (Full View) doors. Trusted for high-performance applications ranging from motorsports windshields to space helmets, LEXAN sheets set a new standard of excellence in performance in the high-speed door industry.
In keeping with a history of product innovation that has made Rytec the leading manufacturer of high-performance doors in North America, the company has now incorporated LEXAN sheets with MARGARDTM coating into its windows as a standard feature in its Spiral FV doors. Far more durable and scratch resistant than conventional polycarbonate or acrylic, the new premium windows with coated LEXAN sheets are also UV-light and graffiti resistant, and provide glass-like optical quality for clear visibility and light transmission. LEXAN sheets are fabricated and supplied by the Polymershapes distribution business of SABIC’s Innovative Plastics.
The new design of Rytec’s Spiral FV door incorporates LEXAN sheets in its windows while preserving the sleek appearance and clean lines of the popular Spiral FV door. The innovative keder frame system enables easy window replacement without removal of the entire panel. In keeping with Rytec’s customer focus, this enhancement will now be standard and includes an unprecedented 7-year limited warranty, assuring customers of continued long-term product performance with proper maintenance.
“The introduction of windows with LEXAN sheets marks a major step in the ongoing evolution of Rytec’s Spiral FV doors,” said Stephen Ashmore, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Rytec Corporation. “Now with the best optical clarity and light transfer and far greater durability than competitive full vision panels, the choice for high-performance doors is clearer than ever. With these new windows, Rytec provides optimal performance and superior value to our customers.” Further, Sameer Singla, General Manager of Polymershapes, stated “We’re proud to collaborate with Rytec to incorporate LEXAN sheets into this advanced new product, helping them deliver the impact strength their customers demand, coupled with outstanding resistance to weathering and yellowing.”
Architects and builders of automobile dealerships, parking garages and other secured buildings are rapidly adopting high-speed doors to improve energy efficiency and enhance the flow of traffic. Rytec’s Spiral FV door is a high-speed, high-tech roll-up door incorporating a distinctive spiral track and ultra-modern appearance. The Spiral FV model opens at a speed of up to 100-inches per second to enable quick entering and exiting of vehicles. The high-speed closing controls access and enhances security while reducing heating and cooling costs by maintaining temperatures in conditioned spaces.
