Niagara Falls Protected by Heavy Duty Rolling Door

Niagara Falls, with a vertical drop of over 165 feet, is made up of three waterfalls combining to produce the highest flow rate of any waterfall on earth.

Just a few miles from these falls on the Niagara River sits a power plant that produces hydroelectric power run by the New York Power Authority (NYPA). Conditions in this area are harsh due to heavy winds, severe winters and high levels of moisture. NYPA sought a door that could withstand these conditions and house gantry cranes that provide critical maintenance to turbines at the plant that generate hydroelectric power for the surrounding areas. The Titan Heavy-Duty Rolling Steel Service Door Rolling Steel Service Door was chosen to house these essential cranes, which can lift up to 315 tons, to protect them for the continued success of the plant.

The Titan Door was chosen not only for its size, but its performance criteria to withstand and operate under a significant wind load, ensuring that the gantry cranes would remain operational during high wind speeds or other extreme weather events.
