Double Acting Traffic Doors

The Ultimate in Durability and Corrosion Resistance: Contendoor™ from Weiland

In industries where durability, cleanability, and corrosion resistance are paramount, Weiland’s double acting traffic door, the Contendoor™, stands out as a leading solution. Built for high-traffic areas, the Contendoor is engineered to take a hit-after-hit and keep swinging, making it an ideal choice for demanding environments.

Double-Acting Traffic Door Highlights

/

Unmatched Durability

The Contendoor™ is designed to withstand the rigors of high-traffic environments. Whether it’s a bustling warehouse or a busy industrial food-processing environment, these doors are built to last. The robust construction ensures that they can handle the constant impact and heavy use typical in such settings without compromising their functionality or appearance.

Superior Cleanability

In industries where hygiene is critical, the Contendoor excels. The smooth, non-porous surface of the plastic material makes it easy to clean and maintain. This feature is especially important in food processing facilities, healthcare environments, and any other industry where cleanliness is non-negotiable. The design minimizes crevices and joints where dirt and bacteria can accumulate, ensuring a sanitary solution that meets stringent hygiene standards.

Exceptional Corrosion Resistance

Traditional doors often fall short in environments where moisture and chemicals are prevalent. The Contendoor™, however, is built to resist corrosion, making it a reliable choice for areas prone to such challenges. All hardware is stainless steel including every component of the hinge. The plastic material is inherently resistant to rust and corrosion, unlike metal doors, which can deteriorate over time. This resistance ensures that the Contendoor™ maintains its integrity and functionality, even in the most challenging conditions. 

Perfect for High Traffic Areas

The Contendoor™ is not only durable and cleanable but also designed for efficiency in high-traffic areas. Its double-acting feature allows the door to swing both ways, facilitating smooth and easy passage for personnel and equipment. This design reduces the wear and tear associated with frequent opening and closing, further enhancing the door’s longevity and reliability.

The prize-fighter in your hectic operation.

What truly sets the Contendoor apart is its ability to absorb impact. Engineered to take a punch and keep swinging, these doors are perfect for environments where collisions are inevitable. The resilient plastic material can handle impacts without sustaining damage, ensuring continuous operation and reducing the need for repairs or replacements.

The Ultimate  Innovative Design for
Strength and Durability

Integrated Stainless Hinge Assembly

The stainless steel reinforced corner hinge brackets are designed to enhance the stability and alignment of our doors. This precise engineering ensures that the doors operate smoothly and efficiently, even in high-traffic areas. The added reinforcement at the corners helps prevent sagging and misalignment, common issues with lesser-quality doors.

Internal Reinforcement

We take pride in our innovative approach to door construction, and our proprietary fiberglass pultrusion technology is a testament to that. Designed to offer unmatched strength and durability, our doors feature heavy-duty stainless steel reinforced corner hinge brackets.

Frequently
Asked Questions

What is the standard color(s) for door panels?

Our standard color option is black. The material cost of black allows us to compete, even with a 50% thicker face than competitors. Our face is 3/16” thick and more durable. 

Are custom color door panels available?

Custom colors available are Gray and Blue at a higher price point—other colors special order.

What type of V-Cam Hinges are available?

The V-Cam is built to be center-mount with a medium rise and cast from 304 stainless steel.

Is the perimeter gasket interchangeable?

The perimeter gasket is interchangeable due to damage or normal wear and tear.

Is there a galvanized hardware package available for cost savings?

A galvanized hardware package is not presently available.

Is a door panel only available for purchase?

Yes, this panel can be mounted into the existing frame opening.

Why would you recommend this style of door versus a personnel door or infitting cooler door?

Door style often comes down to owner preference. Double acting doors are ideal for two-way traffic but don’t seal as effectively as personnel doors, particularly walk-in style cold storage doors. In some situations, two personnel doors mounted side-by-side swinging in opposite directions, or a double egress door, may be a better choice. Consult with us to learn more. 

When would you recommend a bumper versus an impact plate vs nothing?

We would recommend:

• Forklift/pallet traffic = teardrop bumpers
• Cart or heavy people traffic = Impact plates
• Personnel only traffic = no teardrop bumpers or impact plates

I have had other doors crack over time. What do you do to prevent this?

Our plastic face is 50% thicker than competitors. But in addition to this we reinforce the corner of the door panels where the hinge post is with an internal heavy-duty stainless steel bracket. On-site precautions can be taken such as the use of bollards to prevent traffic from making a sharp left or right turn as they move through the opening. 

I have strong airflow that may push the door open. What do you recommend?

A double acting door may not be the best solution if you need to control airflow. You may want to consider a latching personnel door with a door closer.

If we don’t need a tight seal, can we just leave the gaskets off?

Yes, if your customer does not need a tight seal the gaskets do not need to be included providing additional cost savings.
