High Speed Doors

A Guide From an Industry Expert

There are many types of security measures that you can implement into your property to guarantee it is safe and effective. One such example is the high speed door – a great piece of technology which has many applications.

However, what is a high speed door? What role does it play in your organisation? Let’s take a proper look at this bit of kit and you’ll see how it can help you.

What Are High Speed Doors?

So let’s talk about exactly what high-speed doors are and how it can be useful for your organisation. The high-speed door is a door which has been designed to open and close at an incredibly fast speed. The average high speed door opens at the speed of around 1 m/s.

To give you a little understanding of what this means, your average high speed ordered 2 m high would open in two seconds. This is in comparison to a standard roller shutter door of the same size that would take roughly 11 seconds to open.

Another key factor that should be taken in mind when thinking about the high speed door is the fact that it can come in many shapes and sizes. For security purposes, you can get a door which comes in aluminium that helps to stop intruders from getting in, or you can invest in a high-speed PVC fabric door that helps to maximise speed.

The security applications for something like this should be pretty evident. Having access to a door that can close at great speed means that you have a very effective security system. If your door opens and closes in two seconds, the likelihood of anybody getting in or out without proper authorisation is very slim. Furthermore, in the event of a fire or other type of emergency situation, you can quickly cordon off areas and prevent dangerous chemicals or fires from spreading.

Final Thoughts

So, when it comes to the high-speed door, it’s a very valuable resource for your building to consider. Being able to open and shut the door at great speed could definitely have advantages, so it’s up to you to pick and choose the best option. You’ve got plenty of options regarding how you do this, so it’s really up to you. There are lots of businesses that use high-speed doors on a regular basis, so it’s a good choice.
