The Bug Blocker Service Door Screen Insert Panel is designed to ventilate any commercial facility, while eliminating the problems that occur when hollow metal service doors are left propped open. The Bug Blocker provides security, while eliminating entrance by unauthorized people, insects, birds, and rodents while providing needed ventilation.
The Bug Blocker Service Door Screen Insert Panel can be retrofitted into existing service doors. This product’s construction of 304 stainless steel screen and aluminum alloy frame is designed to withstand the rigors of the toughest industrial environments. A removable clear polycarbonate insert panel, or removable insulated metal panel can be locked into place for plant lock-down or during cooler weather. Up to two insert panels can be added per door (one above and one below the panic opener). 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. A new option is to use stainless steel expanded metal which is available with or without 30 mesh for pest prevention.
For 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 greater security, expanded metal 304 stainless steel utilizes 3/4 inch 20 gauge with 80% free area. 30 mesh can be added to the expanded metal for pest prevention. 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 insect 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: sawtooth grain beetle, merchant grain beetle, rice weevil, cigarette beetle, foreign grain beetle, granary weevil, etc. Test documentation is available upon request. This insect screen also meets Federal Specification Standard A-A-1037 for 304 stainless steel wire mesh.
The Bug Blocker® Service Door Screen Insert adds ventilation to hollow metal service doors. It's aluminum and stainless steel construction allows easy wash-down from high-pressure hoses.
Companies in the food industry, or that provide products to the food industry, and are inspected by the FDA, State, USDA, A.S.I. (American Sanitation Institute), or A.I.B.
