PVC Swing Doors – Heavy Duty

These steel-framed, Clear PVC Swing Doors are ideal for many industrial and commercial applications including Factories, Kitchens, Food Processing Plants, Transport Terminals, Retail Stores, Supermarkets, Cold Storage and Hospitals, etc.

Almost noiseless in operation, Flexible Clear PVC Swinging Doors can be opened with a light push of the hand or trolley, and will automatically close after entry. Being completely clear, they give an unrestricted view of oncoming traffic.

With their bi-directional swinging hinge, they are an asset in many applications such as keeping out drafts, dust and pests, while continuing to provide outstanding results in their safety, hygiene, temperature and acoustic isolation properties.

Ideal in applications where the PVC Swing Doors are subjected to heavy duty traffic such as Fork Lifts, Pallet Trolleys etc, these doors will provide a low maintenance solution in an industrial traffic situation. Compared to other automatic door options, plastic swinging doors are a low injury risk as commercial and industrial doors.

For medium duty applications i.e. personnel traffic and trolleys etc, we recommend installing our aluminium framed Medium Duty Swing Doors. Click here to go to our Medium Duty Swing Door Page.

Door Way Requirements –
Due to the heavy-duty self-closing mechanism, door jambs must provide a strong structure. Door ways that do not provide 6mm thick steel to accommodate the M8x16 socket screws will require either Mounting Plates (90mm x 6mm steel flat bar).

Door ways that do not provide adequate strength (Coldroom Panel or metal stud with gyprock et.) May require a steel RHS Box Sub-frame or similar surrounding the door way. Austcold Industries can provide these together with the doors.

    1. Check to see if the door opening is square. Note: If the door opening is not square you may need to pack out the hinges (Using the steel packers provided) to compensate.
    2. Mark out the fixing holes onto the door frame/jamb as per the template provided. The template must be square to the underside of the door frame/jamb. Note: If mounting plates have been supplied with the swing doors, the template is not required, as the mounting plates have been pre-drilled and tapped.
    3. Drill the door frame/jamb using a 6.8mm drill bit.
    4. Tap the holes using an 8mm x 1.25mm tap.
    5. Lift the swing door into position and, using a wedge, prop up the door. There should be a gap of approximately 6mm from the underside of the door frame/jamb to the top of the swing door.
    6. Fix off the base plate by using the 8mm socket head cap screws provided.
    7. Position the side-mounted lower hinge against the door frame/jamb and mark out the holes. Drill and tap as explained in steps 3 & 4. Ensure that the lower hinge is adjusted square to the door frame/jamb.
    8. Fix off the side-mounted lower hinge by using the 8mm socket head cap screws provided.
    9. To adjust the door, loosen bolt ‘A’ (14mm) slightly. Centre the door by adjusting the worm screws “B” on the rolling piece either left or right. This will align the centre of the door. Note: Re-tighten bolt “A” (14mm) securely after adjusting the rolling piece.
    10. All PVC swing doors are pre-tensioned before dispatch. If the door requires more or less tension, remove the PVC insert at the top end of the door frame. Insert the tension key into the spring tube (located inside the frame) and turn clockwise for more tension, or anti-clockwise for less. Note: Never unscrew the adjustment nut fully (anti-clockwise), as removing this nut will release the internal tensioning of the spring. The tension key is not supplied as standard; it can be purchased from Austcold Industries Pty. Ltd.

Lubrication: It is recommended that periodic greasing of the plunger, prism and lower hinge in undertaken approximately every 2 to 3 months, depending on the environment.

Cleaning: The PVC panel can be cleaned with warm, soapy water and detergent, or, water under pressure, so long as the temperature does not exceed 40 degrees. Do NOT use solvents such as ketones, esters, cyclohexanol, benzenes, trichloroethylene and tetrahydrofuranes.
