Martin Garage Doors are built to function in almost any setting---including extreme high altitude.
Martin Garage Doors were recently installed on tdhe Chilean mine "Compañia Minera Mantos de Oro" in Chile in a ;unique setting. The Andes-based mine is located more than 13,000 feet above seal level. It is among the highest garage door installations in the world, if not the highest.
Jose Luis Carmona of Ferrocor, Martin's dealer in Chile, said the high altitude did have its obstacles. He said installers had to take their time in installing the door, because of the oxygten-challenged setting.
The mine company is a subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp.
