Bug Screen Door

A simple solution to reduce unwanted infiltration, and add comfort to your employee’s work environment to increase productivity and discourage trespassing. 

The bug door is a cost effective way to provide ventilation and natural sunlight to buildings while maintaining an insect free environment and a barrier from unwanted pedestrian traffic flow. 

Technical description

Door Construction – Doors are constructed with a durable vinyl encapsulated woven polyester mesh that is resistant to mildew and color fading. The bug screen door material utilizes 17 X 11 scrim count plain weave and 11.7 oz. per square yard of material in your choice of standard colors. 

Track System - Durable, yet lightweight, the deep channel aluminum track system tightly secures the panel in the opening. The aluminum track flairs out at the top of the guide curtain material for easy, smooth and consistent operation. 

Draft Resistance and Horizontal Stability – Each door includes round ¾” diameter horizontal fiberglass stiffeners for draft resistance and horizontal stability. An optional 1” diameter metal tube is available for wider openings or high wind load applications. The stiffeners are inside a bright yellow, vinyl coated nylon pocket, which adds visibility and increases safety. 

Bottom Pocket – The bottom pocket also uses a bright yellow, vinyl coated nylon and a hem chain for added weight preventing crawling critters from getting free passage at the floor contact point. Uneven or slanting floors are not a problem! 

Safety Strips – Safety yellow and black strips are standard on the interior edge of the panel. 

Easy Installation and Operation - The door can be placed on the inside or outside of a building with in-jamb mounting, face-of-wall mounting, or inside standoff mounting. Both the in-jamb and inside standoff use strips of vinyl coated nylon material or brush seals to completely enclose the header and sides. 

Roller Tube – The roller tube is 3” X 6” in diameter and is dependent upon the size of the door. 

Manual or Motor Operation – Manual roll-up doors are available with either a chain hoist or springload system. Motor operation uses either in-tube motor for small doors or an external jackshaft motor for larger doors. 

Options - Exterior wall mount protective hood is available option. Also available as an option is a lock down system with a solid bottom bar. 

All doors are custom built to the exact opening size and are available in array of standard colors with a variety of application specific options including special screen material, stand off frames for overhead and vertical lift doors and either manual or motorized operation.
