Overhead screen doors are an efficient solution for securityventilation, and pest control

Smooth operating, our sectional steel screen mesh bug doors glide up and out of the way just like your solid door but can lower (automatically or manually) when the truck leaves. A Bug Blocker overhead screen door is a natural, non-chemical pest control barrier method. Helping you ventilate your loading dock area with outside air helps minimize odors, fumes and vapors in your product storage and processing areas while denying entry to pests. Our most popular ventilating door screen solutions are the #12 or #30 mesh screen. See our mesh page to learn more.

AIB, USDA, FDA and GFSI regulations state:

  1. Windows and doors that must be kept open for ventilation are screened to prevent pest entry.
  2. The building has barriers in place to protect against birds, rodents, insects and other pests.
