According to Scott Blackford, TODCO vice president of sales and marketing, the panels of TODCO's ArmorPlate™ overhead truck doors incorporate the proven technology of high-strength steel skins bonded to a solid high-density polyethylene composite core.

"The steel skins have the durability to stand up to heavy freight, frequent stops and grueling over-the-road weather conditions," Blackford said.

In addition, the polycomposite core is impervious to moisture, adding protection for cargo, while providing extra structural strength.

"This extra-strength door has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio," Blackford adds. "In fact, our ArmorPlate door weighs in at about the same as a one-inch plywood door. But it's thinner (13mm) and more weather resistant."

In addition, ArmorPlate can be painted or can incorporate pre-painted coil to match fleet color specifications. Its standard EverWare™ rivets protect against rust, without the extra cost of stainless steel.
