American Mine Door offers a variety of “man doors,” accessible by miners for easy traffic flow and quick escape in emergency situations.
“Man doors” are smaller, step-through doors in the lower wings of the much-larger mine access doors. Call our expert installation team at 216-432-3240 to learn more about choosing the right mine door design for your location.
Our AMD Airlock Man Way can be designed to fit your unique mining needs, with available features including:
- Customization of box and door sizes.
- Adaptability for various mine door styles.
- Airtight, steel chambers with sliding, pedestrian doors on each side.
- Unique, gravitational-controlled, sliding-door mechanisms for easy opening and closing.
- Minimal maintenance for years of dependable service.
- Functionality in high-pressure environments.
- Durable gauge tubing and steel frames for added protection.
- And many more!
Sliding Pedestrian Door in Mine Door
Used in high-pressure applications where room is not available to install a “stand alone” pedestrian door to the side of the primary mine door. These doors feature a dual-roller trolley for reduced friction, allowing them to open and close easily in all environments. Roller bearings at the bottom of the door reduce friction and allow the door to glide freely. Doors are typically gravity closure type to ensure doors stay in the closed position after entry/exit.
Opposing Swing Pedestrian Door
Operates under the same principles as our traditional mine doors, utilizing an opposing wing design to cancel out the effects of static pressure. These doors remain easy to open, even in high-pressure environments with minimal risk of doors slamming shut.
Concave Pedestrian Door
Consists of a spring-assisted rotating door mounted in a steel channel frame. These doors allow for pedestrian access through areas with dangerous high winds and differential pressure, as a torsion spring closing assembly ensures door security at all times.
AMD Airlock Man Way
Our American Mine Door dual man way chamber eliminates dangerous change of air pressure from one section of the mine to the other without breaching the ventilation route. This two door “Box style” chamber permits the safe, easy passage of pedestrians between different air-pressures.
AMD Airlock Man Way - Tunnel
Our American Mine Door dual man way chamber eliminates dangerous change of air pressure from one section of the mine to the other without breaching the ventilation route. This two door chamber consists of: a concave door, a short “tunnel”, a second concave door, all a part of one complete assembly. Concave Pedestrian Doors permits the safe, easy passage of personnel between areas of varying air pressure differentials.
