PVC Swing Doors – Medium Duty

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

With their self-closing dual swing action, they are an asset in applications such as; keeping out drafts, dust, pests and continue to provide outstanding results in new applications using their safety, hygiene, temperature and noise reducing properties.

Ideal in applications for; personnel traffic, these doors will provide a low maintenance solution in a Medium Duty traffic situation.

For Heavy Duty PVC Swing Door applications i.e. Fork Lift, Pallet Trolley traffic. We recommend installing our steel framed Heavy Duty Swing Doors.

The Clear PVC Plastic sheets can be replaced. Austcold Industries has two thicknesses of PVC Plastic available.

5 mm thick plastic sheet per personnel traffic making the door more economical and more light weight allowing them to open with a light push of the hand.

7 mm thick plastic sheet for doors subjected to trolleys, ladders or tables on wheels etc. This 7 mm thick plastic can take the punishment and makes the doors the safest solution as they absorb impact reducing the risk of injury significantly.

Adjustable Tension Mechanism

Austcold Industries’ medium-duty aluminium swing doors come pre-tensioned before despatch. Tension can be adjusted by following the procedure described in the installation instructions.

Door Pitch Adjustor

A grub screw, easily adjusted using a (3 mm) allen key, can be turned to align the door with the lintel.
