Although doors are a relatively small spend in a facility, the significant part they play in the segregation of environments, and presenting a barrier to contamination such as dirt, insects, and other pests and vermin, and also the possibilities of significant energy savings and productivity enhancements that can achieve with the right doors installed, is tragically often overlooked.
It's essential to maximise speed, energy savings, efficiency, productivity, security, and minimise repairs in your high frequency doorways, and High Speed Doors are the perfect solution.
High speed doors are door systems mainly used in industrial applications. Its durable construction provides a higher operating speed and can sustain a higher number of opening and closing cycles while requiring lower maintenance and repair cost. Horizontal and vertical opening door types are available depending on the application. Read More Here...
Why is it necessary to install high speed doors in your facility?
There are many reasons why you should use a high-speed door. Here are some good ones:
Speed- traditional roller shutter doors move extremely slowly while high speed doors can fully open in as fast as 1.7 second which means minimised cycle time, thus decreasing energy loss and minimising the chance of forklift impact, improving productivity, and lowering the risk of costly repairs.
Safety – Manual roller shutter doors are heavy and can damage your back and automatic roller shutter doors are just too slow, allowing them to be easily damaged. High speed doors have in built safeties to prevent closing when obstructed, and a wireless reversing bottom edge reverses door when coming in contact with an object. Window panels can also be added to enhance visibility when closed or opening, both maximising safety to prevent personnel harm and vehicle damage, and in situations where security is the main concern our Komby Door is the perfect fit, the compromise and best of productivity and security in one.
Efficiency and Productivity – instead of hopping off the forklift to open a door, high-speed doors have a variety of activations, from remote controls installed in the forklift, to radar and floor loops, increasing productivity and allowing your team to spend less time opening and closing doorways.
Hygiene – high speed doors like the Fastrax Clean are also great in the food manufacturing and pharmaceutical environments where food safety and hygiene are critical risks to manage. Some high speed doors can have every component engineered specifically for harsh wash-down applications. Non-contact radial technology eliminates transfer of contaminants from one side of the curtain to the other. Full surround seals prevent dust, insect and contaminant intrusion.
Temperature control - Short cycle times keep the door closed as much as possible, creating an effective barrier for wind and temperature between two different environments. High speed insulated freezer doors like Fastrax FR have the tightest and most reliable seal, the largest variety of track configurations, and a true knock-out and auto re-feed feature. Energy savings can be guaranteed with the Fastrax FR’s robust insulated curtain, which eliminates ice build-up in your freezer, reducing defrost cycles and saving on clean-up labour costs.
It is important to ensure that the type of doors in use in your facility are the most appropriate for your unique requirements, maximise the reduction in your energy costs, decrease maintenance costs and improve the overall status of the working environment. With over 25 years experience, we are able to able to look at your unique requirements and suggest the best course of action to maximise the savings at your facility.
