The Bug Blocker® Overhead Screen Door System is added to the existing overhead door’s track system. Using the existing door's lower vertical track, we add a track switch mechanism at the top of the opening, a second set of upper tracks, and a sectional screen door of stainless steel wire mesh. The unique track switch design allows for the independent use of The Bug Blocker® door and the existing overhead door, without manual intervention. A dual track system is also available. This configuration allows the user to lower the Bug Blocker® door and vary the amount of ventilation with the main overhead door. There are two standard mesh sizes: one for security applications, another selected and tested by the USDA for food industry applications. Both meet Federal Specification Standard A-A-1037 for stainless steel wire mesh. Also available, stainless steel Expanded Metal utilizes 3/4” flattened 20 gauge. Expanded Metal eliminates entrance by unauthorized people, birds and rodents. 30 mesh may be added for pest control.
The Bug Blocker® Overhead Screen Door System can be used in new construction or retrofitted into any existing high lift, vertical lift, and standard lift loading dock doors using the track switch mechanism. It utilizes the same vertical track as the existing door for a tight seal against the door header. The track switch is available for 2” or 3” track applications and has a lifetime warranty.
Another application approach for high lift, vertical lift, and standard lift loading dock doors is to install a second (dual) track behind the existing door’s track. A galvanized steel, reverse angle side plate and brush seal closes any gaps created by the second track. Brush seal is used to eliminate gaps on the sides, and across the top of The Bug Blocker® door. The advantage of the dual track is the ability of the user to place The Bug Blocker® Overhead Screen Door in the down position and place the existing door at any level within the opening, thereby regulating the amount of airflow allowed into the facility.
For medium security applications, specify the wire mesh that is .023” diameter, 12x12 (lines/inch) 304 stainless steel. Extremely strong, this screen has been approved in many states for minimum-security institutions and detention centers. Yet, the opening size allows ventilation without sacrificing the ability to keep out most insect species. It also meets Federal Specification Standard A-A-1037 for 304 stainless steel wire mesh.
For serious security needs, specify expanded metal made of 3/4” flattened 20 gauge stainless steel eliminates unauthorized entry by people, birds or rodents. Currently used by the military, government and nuclear installations. 30 mesh may be added as an option for smaller insect control.
For food processing applications using flour, grain, and rice products on the premises specify the wire mesh that is .011” diameter, 30x30 (lines/inch) 304 stainless steel. It was chosen after extensive testing by the USDA Agricultural Research Service. Their testing established this screen’s ability to prevent entry by even very small insect classes that are of special concern to food facilities using flour products. These small classes include the sawtooth grain beetle, merchant grain beetle, rice weevil, cigarette beetle, foreign grain beetle, granary weevil, etc. Test documentation is available upon request. This screen also meets Federal Specification Standard A-A-1037 for 304 stainless steel wire mesh.
The Bug Blocker® Overhead Screen Door System provides users with a permanent solution for controlling employee theft, and unauthorized entry. Its aluminum and stainless steel construction allows easy wash-down from high-pressure hoses.
