The benefits of high speed doors

Doors are an integral part of the smooth operations of any commercial building. That is why choosing the most suitable doors needs very careful consideration. A good door is one that combines performance with efficiency and practicality.


When it comes to security and efficient running of commercial or industrial premises, high speed doors are the ideal solution. They are easy to move up and down at high speed and they help quicken logistical flows.

Types of high speed doors

Vertical rolling doors

Vertical rolling doors are designed to be used intensively and predominantly indoors. An ideal situation for a rolling speed door is where there is a continuous flow of traffic. As a lightweight and flexible curtain, this leads to increased efficiency and reduced energy consumption due to better control of air flow.

Vertical lifting doors

Vertical lifting doors are ideal for use as external barriers due to their flexibility. They are designed to be used in large (or medium) openings where the wind load is quite heavy. They can also be where there are two sections in a building that have a big difference in air pressure or temperature.

Benefits of high speed doors

Improved work environment

With high speed doors, it easier for people and equipment to move more efficiently around the premises. No one is required to wait for doors to open or to manually open heavy doors. They also enhance safety which is vital in any working environment.

Reduced pollution

High speed doors are designed to reduce noise and odour pollution. This is why they have become so important in recycling and food industries. In these industries, environmental control is of paramount importance.

Maintaining steady temperature

For many industries, the temperature of a whole building or certain areas of a building must be maintained. Having to heat or cool the area every time a door is opened will significantly increase the operating costs. Due to their speed of both opening and closing, the heat lost from the premises or gained from the outside is minimised. This will increase the efficiency of premises temperature control hugely.


With a high speed door, you don’t have to wait for a slow door to drag itself upwards. This saves a lot of time and energy.

Reduced contamination

In highly sensitive environments, a speed door will help minimise the impact of dirt or dust that comes from outside into the premises. This will help keep the space clean and anything that is being processed is more likely to be of better quality.
