Doors are much more than simple barriers separating different parts of your facility from each other. The right choice indoors can improve productivity while minimizing unwanted costs, such as unnecessary energy usage, while the wrong choice can become barriers to everyday work.
That’s why more facilities are choosing motorized vinyl high-speed doors for their operations. These innovative door designs are perfect for improving productivity and reducing costs, while still fulfilling their main function.
What Are High-Speed Doors?
High-speed doors are a form of roll up door, made from vinyl and/or polyester mesh, attached to a high-speed motor for rapid opening and closing. These doors can move at speeds of 54 inches per second, meaning a typical door only requires a couple of seconds to snap open and closed.
The buttons for activating them can be made large, so they’re easy to hit even when someone has their hands full. Or they can be remote-controlled, or even motion activated. Other options include clear segments to function as windows or mesh panels which allow airflow.
Where Can High-Speed Doors Be Deployed?
Almost anywhere! For example:
- Exterior warehouse doors. High-speed doors are perfect for warehouses because they improve the speed of movement in and out. Additionally, they’re resistant to damage, as well as being easy to clean. Add mesh to improve airflow and make your warehouse less stuffy!
- Interior doors. High-speed doors are an excellent way to partition off a building’s interior, particularly when you want visibility through them. Code-based keypads can be added for additional security.
- Hot or Cold rooms. Because these doors open and close so rapidly, they are a good solution for rooms that need unusual temperatures. They allow less heat to leak across and stay open for shorter periods.
- Clean rooms/food prep. Vinyl is an excellent material for situations where hygiene is critical because it’s simple to clean. It can simply be hosed down for rapid cleanup. In addition, it’s naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and other bacteria.
