What's With the Mountain in the Pilot Logo?

Pilot Door Systems, Inc. is named for 10,720 ft. Pilot Peak, the highest mountain in the Pilot range located in Eastern Nevada. The peak was used by early pioneers and explorers as a readily visible landmark guiding wagon trains across the forbidding deserts of the American West. Pilot Peak represented a safe refuge and the promise of good fortune as the weary travellers found water and grazing at its base.

Pilot Door Systems carries on this pioneer legacy as a clear landmark in the self-storage industry where architects, contractors, storage facility owners and operators can find clear direction on their journey to find a solid return on investment.

The Pilot Door Systems Story:

Pilot Door Systems, Inc. was founded in 2005 when the former Roll-Rite/Roll-A-Flex Door Company closed its doors. Then the Operations Manager of the Texas facility, Jan Gorringe saw the potential that existed in the equipment that was up for sale.

The manufacturing equipment was purchased, moved to Pleasant Grove Utah, and Pilot Door Systems Inc. was in business.

Aware of the issues inherent in curtain door designs, Pilot immediately began looking at ways to improve the design and function of the door. Collaborating with storage facility owners and managers, general contractors and building suppliers; Pilot was anxious and excited to bring innovative changes to the industry - R & D went into overdrive, new equipment was purchased and production and improvements started in earnest.

From our innovations in bearing and tensioner design, to the improvements we have made in spring, drum, curtain and track function – Pilot Door Systems continues to push forward in providing the best possible doors and related products to the self-storage industry.
