Commercial Door & Access Systems
Major manufacturers of rolling steel doors and security grilles recognize Lutco as a reliable solutions provider for the specific needs of their applications. Lutco specializes in identifying opportunities for cost savings in the design and manufacture of commercial rolling steel doors and more.
Customized Solutions Minimize Cost
Because Lutco manufacturers all of our components and assemblies in-house, we can offer custom sizes for a variety of features. For example, a slight adjustment to the bearing bore can allow rolling door manufacturers to switch from using a special and expensive tube size to standard DOM tubing. Additional modifications, such as a centerflange bearing designed with welded flangettes rather than staked rivets, can minimize your production costs.
In addition, Lutco supplies a variety of banded thrust bearings in various sizes to be used against the torsion spring in rolling steel door applications. Our unitized assembly design has replaced alternate three-piece arrangements that included two thrust washers and a thrust bearing.
Lutco has supplied flushmount bearings used in commercial door and gate operators, and access systems for many years. Flushmount bearings made with stamped steel housings are a lightweight alternative to cast mount designs. Other custom options can also be included in the design, such as incorporating a rubber boot around the bearing to suppress operating noise.
