Elkhart, IN (September 1, 2017) – StateWide Windows of Elkhart, Indiana will showcase its feed and manger access doors for livestock trailers as well as its line of frameless windows at this year’s tenth anniversary NATDA Trade Show & Convention. The doors are part of its well-respected heavy-duty line of feed and manger doors, known as the “Clydesdale Series”.
“We’re one of only two feed door window manufacturers producing this heavy-duty door,” said StateWide Director of Sales Jason Barhydt—who not only sells the doors, but helped engineer them as well. “It’s a mill extrusion with a longer flange, graphite-coated pins and a heavy-duty look.” Part of this look comes from strong hinges that are welded to the frame rather than riveted. “Our hinge pins are graphite coated and are ½-inch in diameter. Others use ¼-inch stainless steel. Our competition’s doors are painted extrusions, with maybe .060″ walls. Ours are .100″ walls in a heavy-duty aluminum. Our inner frame also has a hollow flange, which gives it a lot of strength.”
The key component to each of these Clydesdale doors is StateWide’s heavy-duty hinge system. The Clydesdale Line includes three types of feed and manger doors:
- Radius—Can commonly be seen on several brands of horse and pig trailers on the market today and features a very popular rounded frame, giving it a sleek, modern look
- Mitered—Square and fully welded for a style that is as rugged as it is functional and durable
- Panel— Similar to doors or windows that OEMs are building themselves, with the ability to color match any OEM’s trailer designs with custom skins
