BAFFINLAND Iron Mine

Industry: Mining – Iron Ore
Challenge: Install before harsh winter set in
Door Model: HDE, HDL, HDXL (41 Doors)
Baffinland Iron Mine is a new iron ore mine in the Canadian Arctic, well above the Arctic Circle. This mine needed forty-one custom built, heavy duty, high-performance doors that would perform reliably in extreme cold, harsh conditions. The rugged environment included the likelihood of door impacts as heavy equipment frequently made its way in and out of the buildings.
Compounding their door supply challenge, Baffinland needed the doors manufactured, shipped and installed before the harsh Arctic winter set in.
Door Size & Quanitity
41 door, varying in size from 14’x20’ up to 30’x23’
Models HDE, HDL, HDXL
TNR Industrial Doors was chosen due to their simple door design, ability to take an impact without door damage and TNR’s strong reputation, which is well known throughout the mining industry. TNR was able to meet Baffinland’s tight lead times for manufacturing the doors. Also, TNR was able to coordinate ocean freight to ship the doors directly to the mine site in order to have the doors installed by the winter deadline.
