RoaDor has developed, patented and commercialized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roll-up doors designed specifically for the commercial truck, van and trailer industry. RoaDor roll up doors help eliminate the major industry problems and costs resulting from peeling paint, rotting and delaminating doors as well as roller and hinge rusting and failure. The patented design of the interlocking panels has eliminated the need for metal hinges. At approximately half the weight, the weight savings can provide material fuel savings and green house gas reductions for fleets. The superior ease of operation of RoaDor is also helping fleets reduce the potential risks and costs of driver fatigue, injury and compensation claims. These revolutionary new doors are easily cleaned, will not rust or peel, and will maintain their appearance for many years.

The commercial truck, van and trailer market represents a large opportunity. In the United States alone there are 6.5 million vehicles with roll-up doors currently on the road and in excess of 200,000 new vehicles produced into this market each year. Industry sources estimate that approximately 750,000 replacement doors are installed annually.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
