Why Fabric Doors?
Fabric Doors, often referred to as Curtain Doors, have become a popular and cost effective way to close off sections of a barn interior, as well as a means of holding out the elements on an outside enclosure. Seneca Fabric Doors are the perfect alternative to heavy, expensive steel or wood doors and will save you money at the time of installation as well as any time your door is unintentionally damaged.
FEATURES OF SENECA FABRIC DOORS
Heavy Duty Fabric
The fabric on all of our Seneca Fabric Doors is a 25oz. White Opaque PVC Coated Fabric so that it will hold up to the sun’s UV rays and virtually any climate. Folded horizontal pockets for cross pipes. Pockets are welded with a 1” wide weld and stitched to reduce peeling effect.
Cross Pipes are 10ga 2.375” galvanized steel tubing on doors 14’ and larger and 12ga 1.900” galvanized steel tubing on doors less than 14’ wide. Every cross pipe is fitted with Seneca's Pipe End Inserts for easy replacement, should they be accidentally damaged.
Heavy Duty Galvanized Pocket
All of Seneca's fabric doors feature a heavy-duty 14ga
sheet metal pocket with a reinforced outer edge to resist flexing and bending. The galvanized pocket is an open channel, free from permanent tracks or cables which could cause binding and resistance. Seneca's Free Floating Cable System allows the fabric and cross pipes to move freely within.
Two Types of Operation
There are two basic methods of operating a Seneca Fabric Door System; Manual Crank and Manual Powered.
Every Seneca Dairy Systems Fabric Door comes with our standard manual hand crank system for reliable operation. This system is easy to install and delivers straight forward operation while keeping the overall cost of your door low.
Powered Operation (Optional)
Seneca also offers a Manual Powered option for controlling your Fabric Door. With the Manual Powered System you can open or close the Fabric Door by manually flipping a switch that controls a 24volt DC motor. This will provide a faster, easier means of worry-free operation of your door.
