Introduction Sample Picture
J.E.M. Door Co. Ltd are specialists in the manufacturing of the polycarbonate line of overhead door products and are the originators of the first polycarbonate translucent overhead door used in North America in 1976. A main feature of the polycarbonate door - apart from its attractive appearance - is its light weight which results in easy operation with less stress on the related hardware components, and therefore less maintenance.

Sample PictureIn addition to this, our translucent overhead doors are an excellent natural source of sunlight for virtually any application. By using a polycarbonate double-skinned sheet we are able to transmit up to 83% of available light while rejecting the extreme brightness and heat caused by the hot summer sun.

Design is registered in Canada under Industrial Design Registration No. 41529, dated December 20, 1976. In U.S. design patent No. D245266 dated August 2, 1977. Patented in Canada 1979, United States Patent 4452293.

UsagesSample Picture
For all types of industrial, commercial, residential and institutional overhead doors. particularly suited for service and maintenance garages where an attractive light-transmitting, strong and lightweight door is desired.

The unique feature of our door's ability to screen out the undesirable summer heat and also retain the internal winter warmth adds up to tremendous energy savings. The doors have successfully passed stringent tests in different locations during the many winters, with some of the sites being over 1,000 km (600 Miles) north of Toronto Canada.
Sample PictureThis area had temperatures of -40oC (-40oF) with the doors operating perfectly. Absolutely no frost built up on the inside. Energy savings were very significant when the doors were installed on the northwest side of a heated building. If the doors would have been installed on the south side of the building, the savings would be even greater.
