Fast action roller doors are an essential part of business involved in logistics and store goods and supplies. These doors provide fast and easy access to rooms or adjacent areas for rapid transport and movement of goods. It’s an energy efficient solution for businesses to keep production high in very busy workplaces.
Some high speed roller doors are designed to keep the temperature inside the room constant. This is especially important for temperature sensitive products like frozen food or pharmaceutical drugs because the fast action minimizes temperature changes. On the opposite end, this can also trap heat during the winter season. To ensure this, these doors can open and shut in a matter of seconds, and efficiency that business owners need and will greatly appreciate.
These doors are made of strong materials, and sometimes used in pair with steel rollers or shutters to withstand extreme temperatures, rain and strong winds. As such, they will not easily be broken down so owners won’t have to worry about its durability against the natural elements. It’s also designed to keep dust out of the room or building, protecting the contents from any possible defects or harmful elements from the outside. If the contents of the room or warehouse need to be viewed, some doors have vision panels for such purpose without having to open them at all.
To enable these doors to work the way they do, they’re powered by electric motors of up to 400VAC and brakes for stopping. In cases of power outages, the doors can be opened manually by a hand operated chain or crank. Opening and closing of the doors can also be done remotely via IR beams, remote control units, radar, key switches and other devices.
In terms of safety, fast action doors can be customized to have visible lower edge markings, beacons with time delay functions, and even audible alarms. Another safety feature that can be added is the automated stop and reverse program that will function if the system detects any obstruction in the path while it’s closing. Noise reduction systems can also be installed.
Of course, it’s possible to have these doors customized to suit the branding and design of the company or business. Its material allows it to be painted with any required logos or signage.
Businesses usually have these doors custom made based on their products, storage space, location, and environmental specifications.
Fast action rolling doors are an engineering marvel, while not in a great scale, but very useful nonetheless. Businesses involved in logistics, storage and similar industries should consider investing in one and customized to fit the needs of the business. By having an efficient process, this can increase productivity and growth and translate to success.
