WAREHOUSE EXPANSION WITH RICHARDS-WILCOX & RYTEC DOORS, TORONTO | CASE STUDY



Go big or go home!
In expanding their warehouse, our client was in need of new sectional doors. These Richards-Wilcox Multi-Rib Sectionals with vision windows were the perfect solution. Considering the space needed to be maximized, a vertical track installation was necessary.

 
However, steel work also had to be done to support the door and spring assembly. As this was a food assembly facility, Rytec PredaDoors were also installed on the opposing side of this expansion to prevent contamination and separate the areas (shown in blue).

 

Overall, another successful installation by the Wilcox Team!

PVC STRIP CURTAINS, TORONTO | CASE STUDY

A pop of colour!
Our customer's staff were cold when the large 12' wide by 12' high door was open. The solution was to install a curtain with overlapping strips on either side with an 18" offset to cover the yellow bollards as well.

If you're interested in having strip curtains installed, you have the custom option of ocean blue as seen here or orange.

Questions? Contact us today at 905-274-5850. We'd be happy to assist you!
