High Speed Doors

A high-speed door is a type of industrial door designed for rapid opening and closing. They are ideal for optimising traffic flow, energy efficiency, and security in various settings. They are also known as ‘fast action doors’, ‘rapid action doors’ and ‘high speed roller doors’. They are ideal for environments where quick access and climate control are crucial.

Why choose a high speed door?


Operational efficiency: High-speed industrial doors open and close quickly, reducing wait times and optimising traffic flow. This enhances overall operational efficiency, especially in environments with high-frequency door usage.

Temperature control: High-speed doors contribute to better climate control by minimising heat loss or gain. This is crucial in facilities where maintaining specific temperature conditions is essential, such as food processing plants or cleanroom environments. This also contributes to stronger energy efficiency.

Durability and reliability: Fast action doors are built to withstand frequent use, making them durable and reliable. This longevity reduces maintenance costs and ensures a longer lifespan compared to traditional doors.

Productivity improvement: Faster access and reduced waiting times contribute to increased productivity in environments where efficiency is critical, such as logistics and manufacturing facilities.
