Unique Features, Reusable/Movable Designs

Our mine doors wing open in opposite directions. This unique design feature allows our mine doors to withstand many inches of water
gauge pressure. The same air pressure that assists the door in opening also assists it in closing. Consequently, air pressure is equalized.

Ramp slope effects are cancelled as one door wing operating downhill aids the other wing uphill. Due to the equal force principal, our mine
doors can be installed in almost any slope application. To assure maximum lifetime value, our mine doors are
reusable, and can be easily moved from one location to another.

Door Automation Controls from American Mine DoorDoor Automation

The American Mine Door custom designs your door automation controls.  After a review of your specific needs, we provide a written description of exactly how your custom control system we will operate.

American Mine Door then builds your controls in-house, proceeds with a thorough testing of the system, and provides complete wiring schematics and installation instructions for your reference.

Custom automations and controls may include, but are not limited to, lighting systems and audible alarms, door interlocks (one door cannot open if another door is open), thru door scanners (door will not close on objects), remote control operation, sonic trip sensors, and more.
