Gortite VF Automated Machine Safety Door

Dynatect’s Gortite VF (Vertical Fabric) Door is designed to minimize cycle time and maximize production time. This high-speed roll-up door separates machines with hazardous operations from other processes, material handling equipment, and people.

The Gortite VF Door contains typical machine/process generated hazards including light debris, fluid splatter/mist, and weld smoke/sparks/flash.

Industrial, High-Speed Roll-Up Door

The door is typically applied to automated production and machine processes that require preventive safety measures like robotic welding, processing, and transport tasks. The door is installed in conjunction with existing machine guard panels on each side of the door to further enhance the separation of environments.
