SERIES RL3000C / E High Speed Door:

The RL3000 Rapid Roll door has been designed by DMF to suit many applications within the marketplace. This model uses a single phase PLC control system with the option to suit either a mechanical limit switch settings control (RL3000C) or an encoder limits settings control (RL3000E). Mechanically, these doors are identical.

Various options exist, depending on your selection, including variable speed control, soft start soft stop of door panel, battery backup for power loss situations, and many options of activation. These allow you to obtain the optimum performance for your traffic flow, and also traffic movements in the vicinity of the doorway.

The Series RL3000 componentry design is so simple it can be supplied in a well defined kit form. This can be a major benefit and saving to country and overseas customers by using local technical trades or maintenance persons. To assist, a very comprehensive Installation and Operation Manual comes with the door.P1020439

Using a  900gsm or 1400gsm heavy duty fire retardant Polyskin panel, and efficiently designed columns extrusions, this door is ideal for internal or external applications up to 36sq metres – and with special modifications, can accommodate openings to over 7m in width.

The control system can now incorporate our new RL3000 PLC controller, offering basic programmable features, variable speed control and adjustable hold open timers, and complex 3 way interlocks. This is housed in a plastic IP65 box and features our new HMI (human machine interface) touch screen control.

Common to this range is the optional flexible bottom rail, as shown. For greater safety and less impact damage, this option can save you a lot of money and downtime. The bottom rail can flex laterally or vertically making it the safest bottom rail on the market. However, it is limited in high air pressure applications or external doorways exposed to high wind.Rapid Roll doors warehouse

With the new heavy windbar design, the RL3000 door model can tolerate wind speeds of about 70-80km/h depending on the width of the door

The Series RL3000 fast action door is custom manufactured to suit any application, and DMF has manufacturing in Sydney, and Malaysia.
