TODCO, Transportation Division of Overhead Door Corporation, introduces WeatherTite Pro, the next generation weather-resistant roll-up door for trailer and truck body applications.

WeatherTite Pro improves upon the TODCO WeatherTite door that eliminated problems of swelling, warping, finish delamination and rotting experienced with wood roll-up doors when it debuted 15 years ago. The new door takes these benefits to a new level, using 100% recyclable and highly engineered co-polymer panels that reduce weight and improve heat tolerance.

A WeatherTite Pro panel weighs 25% less than standard WeatherTite panels and 37% less than ¾-inch wood and ¼-inch plate-style panels, increasing payload potential. Lighter door weight will also allow the option of installing a long-life counterbalance spring that reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

Results of ASTM D648 Heat Deflection Testing at 66 psi conducted by TODCO shows WeatherTite Pro has a 23% higher heat tolerance than standard WeatherTite panels, reducing the opportunity for warpage in hotter climates.

Additional features of WeatherTite Pro include:

•Improved impact resistance

•Smooth panel surface—Allows for an automotive quality paint finish and excellent decal adhesion

•Automotive grade UV stability and finish color

•Anti-pinch panel joint—Eliminates pinch point at panel joint to improve safety and reduce injuries and worker compensation costs

•Anti-drip design—Prevents water from the exterior of the door from dripping between panels onto cargo when in operation and moving through the radius

•Interchangeable with current WeatherTite panels

•Available with 1-inch or 2-inch track and rollers

•10-year limited warranty

Available options include 1-inch and 2-inch SupeRollers tested to last up five times longer than standard steel rollers and EZ Seals, dual durometer side seals that reduce seal installation time by 50% over rubber seals.
