When US Steel, one of the largest steel manufacturers in the country, needed to replace their door with one that would keep moisture and contaminants out they selected Albany high-performance rubber doors for dependable performance and rugged design.

When hit during operations, their previous metal doors became inoperable for several days, exposing US Steel's buildings to weather, moisture and contaminants. This caused steel coils to develop white rust which corroded and damaged the steel, costing the company over $20,000 per coil.

US Steel needed a solution that would provide fast speeds, tight seals and easy maintenance to protect their valuable inventory. They chose the Albany high-performance rubber doors from ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems to meet the needs of their facility.

Breakaway door panel and bottom beam to reduce damage

Albany high-performance rubber doors have a breakaway door panel and bottom beam to reduce damage if equipment or vehicles accidentally hit the door. After an accidental impact, US Steel's own personnel can put the door back in operation within minutes.

US Steel coils are also protected with our patented windlock and guide system, which provides a near airtight seal to keep moisture and contaminants out. The new high-performance doors have successfully eliminated the white rust corrosion and costly loss of inventory.
