1st Choice Installs Commercial High-Speed Doors in Hertfordshire

In business and industry there’s always a drive to do things better, faster, more efficiently. This applies to doors as much as it does to machinery and broadband speeds. High-speed doors are very much on the radar of 1st Choice Security System clients these days, so this blog will consider their benefits and look at a recent installation of high-speed doors in Hertfordshire.

What are High-Speed Doors?

Obviously, they are doors that open and shut fast – at a rate of 1 metre per second, on average. Just to put that in context, a 2-metre door would take just 2 seconds to open whilst its equivalent roller shutter would take just over 10 seconds. The majority of high-speed doors are made of fabric PVC and they work on the same principle as any other roller shutter mechanism.

What Are The Advantages of Commercial High-Speed Doors?

The place you’re most likely to find one of these doors is in a warehouse, or industrial setting. They’re popular because of the following advantages they offer:

  • Good for Productivity. If vehicles and people are able to come and go faster, their productivity will be greater.
  • Security. Doors that work at high speed reduce the window of opportunity for intruders to enter your premises. Additionally, the doors are extremely robust and durable, ensuring the security of your business.
  • Contamination Reduction. They’re ideal for reducing the transmission of dust, pollution, and contaminants from one area to another. The speed of the doors is also an excellent way to stop insects or vermin from entering.
  • Simple to Maintain. Problems are rare with high-speed doors, but if repairs are necessary, they’re normally completed in under an hour.
  • Environmental Control. High-speed doors have a powerful seal, so they are an excellent way to maintain a constant temperature.
  • Noise Control. The excellent seal on high-speed doors provides impressive noise reduction.

Case Study – 1st Choice Installs a High-Speed Warehouse Shutter in LetchworthRoller Shutter Security Door Installer

Our client in Letchworth asked us to install a high-speed warehouse shutter on their premises. The fabric PVC shutter is equipped with a range of safety features. These include a light curtain which picks up any object protruding into the opening, and a safety edge to ensure the curtain remains within the side guides.

The installation was completed to DHF safety regulations, and our client was absolutely delighted with the work the 1st Choice team had carried out.
