High Speed Doors Can Reduce Energy Costs

The efficiency of the supply chain combined with employee wellbeing are primary contributors to a productive workplace environment within manufacturing and storage facilities.

High speed roll up doors allow for rapid opening and closing and together with their longer operating life and high safety standards, provide these operations with an excellent return on investment as a result of faster turnaround times.

This is according to Apex Strip Curtains & Doors managing director, Wim Dessing who says that high speed doors facilitate a more controlled ambient temperature inside a manufacturing or warehousing facility, thereby contributing significantly to reducing energy costs and ensuring employee comfort.

“Temperature and humidity control is enhanced through the elimination of excessive through flow of warm or cold exterior air into the workspace. As an added benefit, due to their speed of operation, high speed doors reduce the influx of insects and other airborne contaminants that negatively impact on product quality,” Dessing says.

Unhindered traffic flow remains a primary concern for businesses. The Apex range of high speed doors incorporates a counterweighted balancing system that not only ensures high standards of performance and safety but also provides fast, semi-automatic reopening.

These high speed doors offer both functionality and performance. They are unobtrusive, yet able to cope with the intensive demands of heavy and continuous traffic. The design features the integration of the actuator, controls, safety devices and balancing systems in one unit for cost efficiency and a reduced footprint.

Doors are available for medium and large entrances, and Dessing says that it is important to consider the size of the opening, frequency of opening and closing and the volume of vehicular traffic when selecting a high speed door.

“Our competent team works closely with customers to find a solution that will provide a good cost to performance ratio, and ensure that the most appropriate high speed door is selected for the application,” Dessing concludes.
