Overhead truck doors tough as steel

Todco says its ArmorPlate overhead truck doors possess the extra strength of steel for heavy freight trailer and truck body applications. The panels incorporate high-strength steel skins bonded to a solid high-density polyethylene composite core, providing added durability to stand up to heavy freight, frequent stops and grueling over-the-road weather conditions, the company says.

The polycomposite core is designed to be impervious to moisture, adding protection for cargo, while providing extra structural strength. The door also has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, according to Todco: It weighs about the same as a one-inch plywood door, but it’s more weather-resistant and thinner, measuring 13 mm. The company says its MagniCoat rivets help protect the doors against rust.

ArmorPlate can be painted or can incorporate pre-painted coil to match fleet color specifications. For more information, go to www.todco.com.
