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

Opaque Panels – Swing Door Panels can be opaque up to a specified height, this provides a frosted appearance to the plastic sheet for privacy.
The aluminium door frames can be powder coated in a variety of colours for applications which require colour matching or resistance against corrosion. Dulux standard powder coat range is available.
