Diamond Roll Up Doors, a leading designer and manufacturer of panel overhead doors and aluminum shutter doors, announced the introduction of its revolutionary new EZ35 Aluminum Shutter Door today. The EZ35 comes with its roll-up shutter door pre-hung in its frame as one complete unit, radically reducing complexity and minimizing installation time. The patent-pending EZ35 Aluminum Shutter Door was displayed during NTEA Work Truck Week 2022, March 8–11, 2022, in the Diamond booth 3579.
Roll-up doors can be complicated to install in the field. The doors come in segments and have to be assembled, and installers must cut a hole in the vehicle sidewall, build a frame, construct a head plate, correctly load the door’s roller springs, and finally, wrap the door jamb inside and out to weatherize it and make it presentable.
Unlike other roll-up and swing doors that require extensive assembly and time-consuming field installation, Diamond’s EZ35 Aluminum Shutter Door has a squared frame that is built exactly to customer specifications. Each door comes completely assembled and is fully functional once unpacked.
The shutter door is factory installed within its welded frame and its spring counterbalance pre-tensioned for optimal performance prior to shipping. The doors can match virtually any size opening and an exterior flange helps installers achieve a perfect exterior finish every time. Frames and flanges can even be ordered to match body colors and trim styles.
“The innovative design of the EZ35 Aluminum Shutter Door will save time and money and will make life easier for truck and trailer OEMs, upfitters and anyone installing a roll-up door in the field,” said Scott Bennett, sales and special projects manager for Diamond Roll Up Doors, and the inventor of the EZ35. “Because each EZ35 door comes pre-sized, fully welded, assembled in one piece and ready to install, even a novice can finish installing one within an hour, and I’ve seen some completed within as little as 15 minutes.”
Bennett points out that the EZ35 directly addresses an endemic industry problem that has been neglected until now, and that many roll-up and swing-door failures can be attributed to all the variables that have been associated with aftermarket door installation. “Because the EZ35 leaves our factory completely unitized and ready to go, we’ve taken that variability out of the equation,” he said. “It’s a true game changer for the customer, and we expect it to make installation errors a thing of the past.”
Though the factory construction and shipping of the complete, installation-ready door unit is new, the functionality of the EZ35 is based on a time-tested design with years of trouble-free operation in the real world. The innovative EZ35 is the culmination of decades of experience from the leading manufacturer of work truck and commercial vehicle doors.
“The EZ35’s aluminum slats are held together with an engineered aluminum ball and socket design and use an integrated weather seal that resists moisture intrusion,” said Dwight Lohr, sales operations manager for Diamond Roll Up Doors. “In contrast to other roll-up doors, the structural integrity and stability of the EZ35 roll-up curtain door are not dependent upon the weather seal. Its intelligent design even allows the door’s interchangeable slats to be removed and repositioned or replaced if damaged.”
As an added advantage, an EPDM rubber seal also lines the entire perimeter of the door, and once the EZ35 is opened, it will remain in its fixed position until manually closed. The design promotes safety and prevents the free-falling tendency associated with some roll-up doors. The door’s low-profile design makes it a logical alternative to swing-out doors, particularly when navigating near roadside obstacles like telephone poles, when tight proximity to a work area is needed, or when opening and closing makes swing-out doors impractical or burdensome.
The EZ35 comes with a one-year warranty, and if service is ever required on it or any other Diamond Door product, the company, now a part of ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems, a global supplier of door solutions, can provide service. Diamond can deploy service technicians to virtually anywhere in North America to help keep its customers happy and productive by keeping their doors functioning properly.
