2/23/2012 – Mr. Glen S. Moss and the quality department is pleased to announce the results of one of it’s most widely used products (Rail car Trap Door). The test was conducted with the objective of cycling the product at least 200,000 cycles without failure. The test also included applying environmental chemicals and real outdoor temperatures to recreate the use on rail cars. HMW successfully achieved 347,000 cycles MTBF which effectively would last roughly 50 years in service. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and now have proven the durability. The Trap Door has many moving parts and springs along with freeze protection from a self contained heating component. We also apply an anti-slip component to provide much needed safety.
