Together, we offer a great deal of experience with automated mining doors. We have successfully provided doors to the mining industry, from Svalbard island deep in the Arctic north to the dry plains of the Atacama desert in Chile. Robust design and high quality have ensured reliable, long-lasting results.

Meeting the toughest needs

The mining industry requires doors that can withstand corrosive and dirty environments, high wind conditions and extreme temperatures. In addition to meeting these needs, we are able to fulfil a range of other important expectations:


Design and function – We offer cost-effective solutions to functional and architectural demands while accommodating increasingly large mining vehicles. We also offer doors that can withstand accidental impact and remain operational.
Energy efficiency – Our doors minimize heat loss (or gain) and provide a viable working environment for demanding tasks. The choice of a translucent fabric door helps minimize carbon footprint and provides natural ambient light in the indoor working environment. The choice of a high-speed door, with opening speeds of up to 60” (1.5 m) per second can help maintain temperature control and save on energy costs.
Safety – Our doors ensure safe operating conditions and minimal maintenance demands. Our doors are equipped with built-in safety monitoring systems and designed with mechanical safety arrestors and other fail-safes, which protect workers and maintain the lifelong operational quality of the door.

Maxiflex offers world-leading products and services, backed by more than half a century of engineering experience and a wealth of application expertise.
