"Let the fresh air in and keep the pests out!"
Frequently Asked Questions: General Questions
Two options we can provide you with. Would you like a separate track for your new Bug Blocker door or would you want to tie into your existing track?
Switch track is a more affordable option that shares the lower track with your existing solid door. In other words when you pull down the Bug Blocker door there is a mechanism similar to a railroad track switch at the top of your door opening that switches the Rasco door into your existing door track. Only one door can be closed at a time. The switch track provides an excellent seal just like your current solid door. If you have a clearance problem because of pipe bollards this is the solution for you. Rasco Industries’ track switch has been in production since 1992 and has an excellent “track record”. The switch track system has remained the preference of many of our customers. Our door can be motorized or manually operated. See our video for more information on the switch track here.

Dual track provides a second track that allows the Bug Blocker door to work independently of your solid door. The advantage is that you can decide how much airflow is allowed in by the positioning of your original door. Brush seal and steel side plates are provided to completely seal the sides between the two tracks preventing bugs or debris from sneaking in the sides and top. Chain-Link security doors, where pest control is not a priority, will not have the side plates or brush seal included. Both the Rasco door and your existing door can be left up or kept in the down position. This application can be manually or motor operated. View the Dual Track configuration here.
The most common configuration. In the open position the door goes straight up the wall sometimes breaking away at the top. This configuration allows a sectional door to open vertically along the wall above the door opening without turning back inside the building.

High Lift / Lift Clearance
A high lift /lift clearance door goes up above the top of the door opening and then by means of a radius turns back into the building. Track hardware causes the door to rise vertically some distance above the top of the door opening before it levels out into a horizontal position. Also known as High Lift Track, Lift-Clearance is the distance above the top of door opening to the underside of the horizontal tracks.

Standard Lift / Normal Lift
Similar to a residential garage door. A standard lift /normal lift door by means of a radius turns into the building at the top of the door opening. This configuration hangs horizontally inside the building right at the top of the door opening.

Rolling Door/ CoilingDoor
A rolling or coiling door is a popular commercial door style. A rolling /coiling door coils into a big roll or drum at the top of the door opening.
See Rolling / Coiling
A side sliding door slides on a rail horizontally on the floor from side to side. A side slider style can also be bi-parting with half sides meeting in the middle of the door opening. Can be installed in the interior or outside of your building.
