Beschreibung[en]

The invention relates to industrial doors, and in particular to doors used in conjunction with sanitary, sterile or germ free applications.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

With the growing public concern over the safety of consumers goods, such as food and pharmaceutical products the government has implemented strict regulations for industries which require sanitary, sterile, or germ free applications. The design of prior roll-up overhead door assemblies for use in such applications have several drawbacks. The most notable drawback of prior designs is the lack of access to the door assembly components for cleaning. For example, access to the door panel and overhead drum for cleaning in prior designs is limited. In addition, prior designs did not allow for removal of the door panel from the drum to completely expose the door panel and drum for cleaning. As a result, mildew and germs would form between the door panel and drum which is not acceptable for sanitary applications.

Prior designs of roll-up overhead doors such as that disclosed in FR-A-2 380 400 did not provide for collecting residue, contaminants or food particles which may accumulate on the door panel or drum. As a result when the door assemblies were cleaned the residue, contaminants and food particles would be reintroduced into the immediate work area or atmosphere. Such a design is undesirable for sanitary applications.

Side columns used to guide roll-up overhead doors up and down to open and close an opening provide-areas where moisture and contaminants may collect allowing germs and mildew to prosper. Access to these areas for cleaning is restricted in prior designs. The present invention provides a roll-up overhead door for sanitary applications which solves these and other problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides a roll-up overhead door assembly which is selectively moved up and down to open and close an opening and which is guided along channel in side columns at opposed edges of the opening, the door having an open position, a closed position and a cleaning position. The door has a drum positioned proximate the top of the opening and a flexible door panel connected to the drum. The door panel is connected to the drum such that when the door assembly is in an open position the door panel is wound around the drum.

The door panel may be further sized such that when the door assembly is in the cleaning position the door panel is connected to a point on the drum so that the door panel does not significantly overlap the drum, thereby exposing the drum and the door panel for cleaning.

According to another optional aspect of the present invention, the door panel is connected to the drum such that when the door assembly is in an open position the door panel is wound around the drum; when the door assembly is in the closed position the point at which the door panel is connected to the drum forms a first angle α with an axis, A, which is perpendicular to and extends through the opening; and when the door assembly is in the cleaning position the point at which the door panel is connected to the drum forms a second angle β to the axis A, the second angle β being greater than the first angle α.

According to yet another optional aspect of the present invention, columns are positioned on opposed sides of the opening. Each of the side columns has a backplate and a cover plate removably attached to the backplate, respectively. The backplate and cover plate cooperate to form channels for guiding the door assembly up and down. The cover plate can be removed from the backplate to expose the edges of the door panel and the surfaces of the side columns which form the channel for cleaning.

According to the present invention, the door assembly further includes a drainage trough attached to a bottom portion of the door panel for collecting moisture failing from the door panel. The drainage trough is configured such that the collected moisture flows toward at least one end of the trough.

Other optional features and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following specification taken in conjunction with the following drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

While this invention is susceptible of embodiment in many different forms, there is shown in the drawings and will herein be described in detail preferred embodiments of the invention with the understanding that the present disclosure is to be considered as an exemplification of the principles of the invention and is not intended to limit the broad aspect of the invention to the embodiments illustrated.

FIGS. 1-13 illustrate a roll-up overhead door assembly 1 according to the present invention. The roll-up overhead door assembly is selectively moved up and down to open and close an opening and is guided along sides of the opening by columns 12. The door assembly 1 has an open position, a closed position and a cleaning position.

As shown in FIGS. 1-3 the door assembly 1 generally includes a drum 2 positioned proximate the top of the opening and a flexible door panel 4 connected to the drum 2 at a top portion 41 of the door panel 4. As illustrated in FIG. 10A, in the open position, the door panel 4 is wound around the drum, covering the entire surface of the drum 2. The door panel 4 is sized such that when the door assembly 1 is in the closed position, the door panel 4 is connected to the drum 2 at a point 51 so that the door panel 4 does not significantly cover the drum 2. This configuration is illustrated in FIGS. 4,5 and 10. This prevents food particles and residue from becoming trapped between the drum 2 and the door panel 4 and also prevents the buildup of mildew when the door assembly is in the closed position for long periods of time. In the cleaning position 52, the drum 2 is rotated further in the closed direction (shown by the arrow labelled C in FIGS. 4-5) exposing the door panel 4 and the drum 2 and allowing both to be easily cleaned. FIGS. illustrates the door panel 4 as it is attached to the drum 2. Furthermore, the door panel 4 is sized such that when the door assembly 1 is in the cleaning position 52, the door panel 4 projects downwardly from the drum 2, thereby exposing the drum 2 and both sides of the door panel 4.

In the closed position, the door panel 4 is connected to the drum 2 at a point that is located at first angle α with an axis, A, which is perpendicular to and extends through the opening. However, in the cleaning position 52, the drum 2 is further rotated toward the closed direction (shown by the arrow labelled C in FIGS. 4-5), the door panel 4 projects downwardly from the drum 2, allowing door panel 4 to hang "freely" from the drum 2. In the over rotated closed position, or cleaning position 52, the door panel 4 is connected to the drum 2 at a point that forms a second angle β to the axis A. The second angle β is greater than the first angle α. This allows the entire door panel 4 and the entire surface of the drum 2 to be exposed for easy access and cleaning. In a preferred embodiment the angle Y is at a point on the drum 2 such that the door panel projects downwardly from the drum 2 and does not significantly overlap or cover the surface of the drum 2. This configuration prevents the buildup bacteria, mildew or other contaminants from forming on the surface of the drum 2 and on the upper portion 41 of the door panel 4.

In the preferred embodiment, shown in FIGS. 9 and 10, the door panel 4 is connected to the drum 2 by a hinge 6. One end of the hinge 6 is attached to the drum 2 while the other end of the hinge 6 is attached to the top portion 41 of the door panel 4.

In particular, the door panel 4 is connected by a piano hinge 6. However, any connection that allows the door panel 4 to pivot away from the drum 2 when the drum 2 is rotated further in the closed direction, into the cleaning position 52, can be used in the present invention. For example, the door panel may be attached to the drum 2 by fasteners that pivot, industrial glue, or stitching that allows pivoting of the door panel 4 from the drum 2.

According to one preferred embodiment of the present invention illustrated in FIGS. 6-7, the door assembly 1 further includes a drip guard 8 that is positioned and sized to catch residue falling from the drum 2 or panel overhead. Preferably, the drip guard 8 is connected to mounting brackets 55 which are in turn mounted above the opening. The drip guard is rotatable about a member 10 so that the drip guard 8 may assume a closed position (FIG. 6) and a open position (FIG. 7). When the drip guard 8 is in its closed position, it partially surrounds the drum 2. The drip guard 8 may then be rotated about the member 10 so that the drum 2 and the underside of the drip guard 8 is exposed for cleaning. In an alternative embodiment not shown, the drip guard 8 maybe rotated about either end to expose the drum 2 and the underside of the drip guard 8.

As shown in FIGS. 3 and 11-13, the roll-up overhead door assembly 1 also includes columns 12 on opposed sides of the opening. The columns 12 form a channel 60 which acts to guide the assembly, and particularly opposed edges 4a, 4b of the door panel 4, up and down to open and close the opening. Each column 12 includes a backplate 16 and a cover plate 14. The backplate 16 is attached to a opposed surfaces 18 adjacent the opening, respectively. The cover plate 14 is removably attached to the backplate 16, respectively. The cover plate 14 may be attached by any conventional connecting devices, including snaps, hooks, and interlocking tabs. In a preferred embodiment, the backplate 16 is provided with thumbscrews and the cover plate 14 is provided with corresponding slots or openings which fit over the thumbscrews and then the cover plate 14 is slid into a resting position. As illustrated in FIGS. 12-13, the backplate 16 cooperates with the cover plate 14 to form the channel 60.

In the preferred embodiment, the door assembly 1 further includes a drainage trough 20 for collecting moisture falling from the door. Generally, the trough 20 is attached to a bottom portion 42 of the door panel 4 and has a first end 20a and a second end 20b. The trough 20 may also be connected to a bottom bar 24 attached to the bottom portion 42 of the door panel 4 and extend upwardly and angularly away from the door panel 4. For example, the drainage trough 20 may be configured such that any collected moisture flows toward at least one end of the trough 20. The drainage may be directed by slanting at least the bottom of the trough 20 downwardly toward one end.

Alternatively, at least the bottom of the drainage trough 20 may be steepled so that the drainage is directed to both ends 20a,20b of the trough 20. It is also contemplated that the trough 20 assume any other configuration that accommodates the drainage of excess moisture from the door panel 4.

As may be seen in FIG. 8, the door assembly 1 may further include a bottom bar24 and a breakaway mechanism 22 connected to at least one end of a bottom bar 24. The breakaway mechanism 22 may be any conventional breakaway mechanism 22 currently used with overhead doors. Alternatively, conventional breakaway tabs may be used.

In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the drum 2 is connected to a motor 80 for rotating the drum 2 between the open, closed and cleaning positions.

Preferably, the motor 80 cooperates with an optical encoder for controlling the rotation of the drum 2, and ultimately for controlling the range of the door panel 4 travel. A conventional controller may be used to set automatic limits for the closed, open and cleaning positions. In this regard, a user may select between these predetermined positions and the drum 2 will automatically rotate to the desired position. Accordingly, the user may easily alternate between the closed, open and cleaning positions.
