High speed doors for Industrial and Commercial Sectors

For many businesses, high speed doors are an absolutely essential part of their operation. Used mainly within warehouses, factories and commercial premises, these fast action doors provide numerous advantages when compared to other, standard industrial doors. Moving with an average speed of around one metre per second, they offer a superior level of productivity for environments in which the doors are required to be opened and closed with high frequency. Controlling temperatures, managing high traffic areas, providing tight levels of security and improving working conditions all become possibilities with the addition of high speed doors.

Originally brought to the market in the early 1980’s due to an increasing demand for temperature control within large warehouse facilities, speed doors turned out to be the solution to a variety of problems for many businesses. An evolution of the original roller shutter doors (which have a slower action), they are sometimes referred to still as rapid roll doors, and have become a vital part of day-to-day operation in many industries.

The attributes and advantages of high speed doors:

Temperature control

This can work for environments where either hot or cold climates need to be maintained. The tight seals of the specialised design and the fast action of opening and closing dramatically minimises heat or cold escaping.

Keeping heat in and the cold out will reduce your companies overall carbon footprint and create instant savings on energy costs. In many cases these savings will result in the door paying for itself over a period of time.

High level security

Because of the fast action nature of the doors, it dramatically reduces the chance of any unauthorised personnel being able to enter or leave the building, protecting product and staff. Their high strength design also deters vandalism and reduces break ins.

Increased safety

Because high speed doors are fitted with a safety edge or sensors, they immediately stop and reverse upon any contact with an obstacle.

Improved working environment

This benefit can be seen in many guises – from the reduction of movement of noxious substances, to improved warmth, to workers being able to maximise productivity and feel secure from extremities.


A speed door eliminates any need for waiting which improves productivity and provides a huge cost saving for any business with a requirement for a high frequency of goods leaving and entering their building on a daily basis.

Easy to maintain

Fast action doors require less maintenance and can be repaired faster and more easily than other industrial doors. Due to their durable design, they are more resistant to damage than ordinary doors too.

Businesses that benefit from high speed doors:

Crucial High speed doors for pharmaceuticals chemical plants

Pharmaceutical or Chemical plants

Strict environmental constraints often require pharmaceutical or chemical manufacturing businesses to utilise fast action industrial doors. Minimising the risk of airborne contamination can be essential and often high speed doors are used in pairs in order to create an airlock and reduce airflow even further.

Crucial High speed doors for food and drink manufacturing

Food and Beverage manufacturers

Many arms of the food and beverage industry use warehousing with high speed doors. Whether part of a logistics chain supply, manufacturing, or a refrigeration facility, there are tight legislations to comply with. One of the main benefits of fast doors in this setting is the temperature and contamination control they provide since maintaining a consistent climate for many food storage and production companies is essential.

For car manufacturing companies, high speed doors are a regularly used commodity. Large numbers of cars are produced in relatively short periods of time. High productivity for distribution is imperative – here, fast action doors become a key part of the logistics process.
