High Speed Door
High speed doors are essential for a variety of different industrial applications. This is not just about convenience, there is far more to it than that. In certain industries, doors that stay open for a long time can cause a hazard, so it is vital to use a high speed curtain door or similar technology.
What Are High Speed Doors?
High speed doors are also referred to as rapid roll doors or fast action doors. They are designed to open and close very quickly, reducing the amount of time that they are left open. This is important for two many reasons including safety and energy efficiency.
For instance, if you have a refrigerated facility, you will want to minimise the amount of time that the door is open in order to keep the cold air in and the warm air out. Not only does this help to keep your refrigerated goods at the correct temperature, but it also helps to save energy by reducing the amount of time that the refrigeration unit has to run.
Another example would be a factory that uses dangerous chemicals. If the doors are left open for too long, the fumes could build up and cause a hazard. By using high speed doors, the risk of an accident is greatly reduced.
There are many other examples where high speed doors can be used to improve safety or efficiency.
High Speed Door Maintenance
If you already have high speed doors installed, it is important to keep them well maintained. This will help to ensure that they continue to operate at peak performance and do not pose a safety hazard.
One of the most important things to do is to regularly check the door sensors. These are what tell the door when to open and close, so if they are not working correctly, the door could pose a serious safety hazard.
Depending on design it may also be important to regularly lubricate the door tracks and hinges as a part of your high speed door service. This will help to keep the door operating smoothly and prevent it from becoming damaged.

High Speed Door FAQs
These types of doors are commonly used in workplaces such as factories and warehouses to help with energy efficiency and security, as well as to ensure that hazards are minimised, such as those that could occur from releasing chemicals into the atmosphere.
They are usually made from durable materials that are still lightweight, and come with a strengthened drivetrain. They are powered by industrial motors to ensure high speed in the opening and closing of the door.
In the UK, it is accepted that high speed doors are those which operate at over 500mm per second opening speed. The speed of the door will be outlined when you get it installed and may even be controllable.
