Simple and straightforward answers to every dealer question. Direct access to to our team. That's a breath of fresh air.
The serial number is on the red sticker found on the right hand side of the bottom section of your door. We have the build sheets for every product we have made since 1990. The serial number helps us locate your exact door specs quickly.
Yes. Please fill out the survey form and we can get that to you.
Absolutely. Give us a call we can help set it up. We use professional door dealers in your area to measure and install. We are well known in the door industry, your current installer most likely knows about our products and can come out and help you get an installation price.
Only need an MSRP budgetary price? Give us a call we can help you with that too.
Everyone asks this! Sorry you can’t skip this part.
We build from your measurements - no mass production here. Without all your answers on the survey forms we couldn’t achieve the perfect fit we are known for. We can give you a budgetary quote if you give us the lift type, width, height, switch or dual track and which mesh choice you want. Give us the ship to address for a freight quote too.
Remember: To order a door we will need ALL the survey form measurements.
Typically 2-4 weeks after receiving your final measurements. Call us for our current lead times!
It’s a lot quicker than you may think. Most quotes go out within the hour.

We only charge extra if you need the shipping expedited. Either way we will work with you to improve the ship date. We are here to help, just call us to speak with a scheduler.
Absolutely. Give us the lift type, width, height, switch or dual track and which mesh choice you want. Feel free to send us photos or shop drawings of the solid door that ours will pair with too! Contact us at email@example.com or give us a call we can help walk you through the process.
All of our doors are custom made just for you. Generally we can go up to 24’9” wide (larger is possible with your engineer’s specs). Give us a call to discuss what will work for you!
Two major benefits to stainless steel are its strength and long lasting qualities. Steel doesn’t tear or warp or sag. With proper maintenance our doors can last a very long time. Some of our first doors from 30 years ago are still in use today. Stainless steel can take a hit and keep on working. It is also easy to clean.
No, keep your door add a screen. Rasco doors work in conjunction with your current door either retrofitting into the same track (with the track switch system) or the Rasco door can run on its own track working independently
(using the dual track system)
For our Bug Blocker with Standard Lift application we have two options:
Give us a call to get a quote on either of these two options.
We make our door the same size as the existing door on an independent track. Our door will break away at the roll. To get a seal, we put brush seal on all sides as well as a side plate that is the same depth as the roll. The side plates fit from the bottom of the roll to the floor. We also provide a top plate, thus closing everything in.
Yes, but it's not the most economical. We can prepare a quote for you showing you both options: one with our hardware and another quote showing sections only.
Yes. but because we can't attach to the track we make our doors several inches wider and supply large Z plates to attach to the wall and encompass the TKO door.
Please see the the Motor Operator Questions section.
It is a bit tricky but yes. Our sections come 3’, 4’ and 5’ high so we will be sending you a 32” radius track for them to go through. Because of that our top section will hang back a bit. We will send you extra punch angle to seal up that area to prevent intrusion. See how it looks here.
Oftentimes the problem is the top rollers were placed in the wrong position. The top rollers have to be placed at the bottom of the switch. That will give you the adjustment you need to seal it properly.
Stop and give us a call. We are here to help. Any modifications other than listed on the installation guidelines will void the warranty. We have done this for over 30 years and we’ve seen many different applications. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Contact us and we can come up with a solution.
Yes, most likely. This is more common than you realize. Give our application specialist a call. We have seen a lot of unique doors over the years and we can help come up with a solution for you.
Yes, we ship to Canada, Mexico and many other countries. Overseas shipments can be arranged for you.

We are confident Rasco doors, when properly installed, maintained and closed, meet the OSHA fall protection standards under Section 1910.28(b), Section 1910.29(b) and Section 1926.502(b). We would be happy to send you a copy of the OSHA guidelines and also forward a copy of our independent third-party test report for the point load testing on our most commonly ordered Bug Blocker Door.
Independent testing has shown our 11 gauge galvanized chain link screen is very strong. It survived point load testing of 1000 lbs with no damage.
Want a copy of the report? We’d be glad to send you a one.
Independent testing on a 12 mesh screen door with a Dynamic Wind Load at 130 mph resulted in a successful pass, with no damage or disengagement. That’s equal to an F2 tornado! Would you like a copy of the report? Give us a call.
Independent testing on a 12 mesh door using a static load point of 479 lbs resulted in a successful pass, with no penetration or disengagement.
Our steel doors are strong! Want a copy of the report? Contact us.
We happily stand behind all our products. We have an industry leading 5 year warranty on our manufactured products. Let us send you a copy with all the details.
Our 304 stainless steel Bug Blocker mesh brings the fresh air in!
The #12 mesh has 52.4% free area with a .0660 opening (most popular)
The #16 mesh has 50.7% free area with a .0445 opening
The #30 mesh has 44.9% free area with a .0223 opening
Vertical lift, high lift, standard lift, behind rolling, outside lift, side sliding, fixed in the opening, stand alone, and what we call a virtual lift (in cases where you can’t high lift a standard lift), along with custom applications. We’ve done this a long time and have seen it all. See our lift page, or give us a call for more information.
Our stainless steel Bug Blocker screen comes in 12 mesh, 16 mesh, 30 mesh, and for use on the SDSI product, expanded metal. Our Security Link Doors come in 11 gauge galvanized steel chain link. We can get you custom screen sizes too. Check out or mesh page or give us a call for more information.
We have many choices depending on your individual needs. Our most popular screen has always been the Bug Blocker stainless steel 12 mesh (12 x 12 lines per inch). Security, pest control for the majority of insect classes (including mosquitos) and OSHA required fall protection all in one door.
The 30 mesh is a finer strand stainless steel mesh (30 x 30 lines per inch). It is not as strong, but was tested and approved by a USDA cooperative to be used in facilities with rice, grain or flour to help keep out the lesser grain borer Rhyzopertha Dominica.
The 16 mesh (16 x 16 lines per inch) is a new up and comer in mesh for retail food establishments.
The Security Link Door is used in facilities that care about security first and foremost along with fall protection at the loading dock.
A switch track shares the lower track with your existing solid door. In other words, when you pull down the Bug Blocker door there is a mechanism similar to a railroad track switch at the top of your door opening that switches the Rasco door into your existing door track. Only one door can be closed at a time. The switch track provides an excellent seal just like your current solid door. If you have a clearance problem because of pipe bollards this is the solution for you. Rasco Industries’ track switch has been in production since 1990 and has an excellent “track record”. The switch track system has remained the preference of many of our customers and is the more economical option.
Dual track provides a second track that allows the Rasco door to work independently of your solid door. The advantage is that you can decide how much airflow is allowed in by the positioning of your original door. Brush
seal and steel side plates are provided to completely seal the sides between the two tracks preventing bugs or debris from sneaking in the sides and top. Security Link Doors (where pest control is not a priority) will not have the side plates or brush seal included. Both the Rasco door and your existing door can be left up or kept in the down position. Learn more on our Track Type page.
We think our doors look beautiful as they are, but powder coating is available as an option for an additional charge. Please note this will add time in production.
Yes, that’s not a problem and we are happy to make this custom product for you. Remember getting a full height Rasco door will help prevent theft by completely securing the opening.
Since 1990 we have kept build records (like blue prints) on every single door we have made. Need a repair? Look at the red sticker on your door and find the serial number. With the serial number we can look up everything about the door.
We have been doing this a long time. No matter how small or large we can help you by sending parts, building a section, or even replacing every bit of the damaged door. We’re just thankful our door was there to ensure the fork lift did not fall off the dock. Give us a call we can help get your door back to work quickly.
Yes, we are green because steel and aluminum are the most recycled materials on earth. Letting the fresh air in naturally ends the need for electrical air conditioning, saving money and the planet. As a barrier method preventing pest intrusion you are not harming insects or the atmosphere with deadly chemicals.
Unfortunately we tried doing that years ago but we found that by cutting into the screen sections to accommodate a walk-through door, we were sacrificing the integrity of our door. We no longer offer that option.
Absolutely. For over 30 years our focus has been to keep the bugs out! In addition to exceeding the requirements for FSMA, A.I.B., USDA, and the FDA, we comply with the new Food Safety/ Food Defense requirements for the physical security of your facilities by allowing you to secure your freight loading doors with strong steel. Homeland Security guidelines require you
to secure your facility with metal or metal-clad exterior doors. Rasco doors minimize the entrance of bug, rodent, animal and human intrusion into your facility. If OSHA stops by our doors comply with fall protection guidelines too.
Yes. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to provide specifications.
Yes, however we do not provide the motors. The doors come motor-ready with 1” solid shaft with a 1/4” keyway. About half of our products have had a motor added.
No but our doors come motor-ready with 1” solid shafts with a 1/4” keyway.
Get the same jackshaft operator for the size sectional door you would normally get. You will also need a longer drive chain and a spreader arm. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.
No, each door has to have its own operator. You will need one per door.
An interlock or whisker switch will need to be added for smooth operation. We have interlocks available.
We send our doors out with 1” solid shafts with a ¼” keyway. Because ours is the secondary door, the torsion assembly is unusually far away from the wall. This will usually require a longer chain and a spreader arm. If the Rasco door is standard lift or has less than 24” of high lift, the torsion assembly will probably be rear mounted and need pusher springs. The release cable and/or chain hoist chain placement will need to be figured out ahead of time or in the field.
Yes it can, but it’s not recommended. First of all, the wall becomes very congested when trying to put two operators within the same area. Second, the release cables and the chain hoist chains can become entangled and useless. Lastly, having both buttons on the same side might be confusing. Having the motor operator on the opposite side allows for ease of application, access and operation.
We don’t make motors but our doors are ready when you want to add one. Your professional door dealer can help you with the different speeds and options available. We send out our custom made doors to work manually. Rasco door springs are so well balanced that when unlocked with a simple nudge your door will roll smoothly open. Currently we hear about half of our doors are motor operated. You can get lifting speeds similar to your garage door at home (the most popular speed for a screen door) up to making the doors fly open (feet per second). It all depends how much you want to spend on a motor. Options we have seen include automatic closers, door opening counters, interconnectivity with computer systems, remote controls used from the fork lifts, and floor sensors that automatically open the door. The sky’s the limit. It just depends on the budget.
