Industrial Insulation Systems Inc (IIS) introduced its patent-pending indestructible forklift door system at a recent open house from its Boise ID manufacturing facility.

Branded Flex-Panel, the door system employs a soft foam core capable of surviving repeated impacts while offering high insulation capacity (R-Value). Flex-Panel has an electromagnetic frame and header system that actively commands a door seal. Heated air moving through the frame system also eliminates the need for defroster wiring in the floor or door panel.

Every year, thousands of insulated forklift doors are accidentally damaged in impacts with forklifts and other warehouse equipment. The result is malfunctioning equipment, thousands of dollars in energy losses, and even more in repairs. While companies continue to invest in floor sensors, laser eyes, radar, and other technology with hopes of reducing incidents of collision, the problem persists.

Flex-Panel’s lightweight door panels mean less wear and tear on operator and track assemblies. The heated door frame and door gasket eliminates frost build-up around the perimeter of the door, and the internal frame eliminates bowing of the door panel. This indestructible system won’t be damaged, even by violent forklift collisions. The hybrid frame is pliable enough to absorb aggressive impacts without sacrificing R-Value.

IIS offers a 20-year warranty on the door panel core. For more information, visit www.iis-inc.com .
