Rapid Roll Doors Can Help Reduce Energy Costs

The cost of heating a business unit or warehouse always seems to be growing and many business owners want to know how Rapid Roll Doors can help Reduce Energy Costs.

With the ever increasing cost of fuel, companies and business owners are all doing everything necessary to insulate their premises and help reduce heat loss. This includes everything from installing insulated roller shutters for windows and doors to draft excluders and cavity wall insulation.

In addition to these energy saving initiatives, it is worth considering Rapid Roll Doors for your business premises. This is especially relevant when the door to your industrial warehouse or business unit is opening and closing repeatedly throughout the day. By installing a High Speed Doors that are able to open and close quickly, businesses can help reduce heat loss as well as increase the efficiency of their operation.

Rapid roll doors are an ideal solution for businesses that require ready access for cars, vans and delivery lorries into and out of their buildings and have been shown to significantly increase the productivity of businesses, as their effectiveness in opening and closing means that you don't waste time waiting for the manual operation or normal roller shutters and doors.

A Rapid Roll Door as the main vehicular entrance to your business unit not only improves efficiency of the workplace, it will also assist in reducing your energy costs. This is due to the speed they operate at, as they open and close so quickly there is much less time for heat to escape, thus maintaining the temperature in your building. This contrasts with standard roller shutters and doors which are slow in comparison and therefore allow much more heat to escape which results in your heating system having to pump out more warm air in order to maintain the temperature and to continually reheat the business unit.

Rapid roll doors are suitable for use both internally and externally and can be installed with a range of operational controls including:

  • Powered
  • Remote
  • Radar Sensor

and can open with speeds of with speeds of 1-2 m/sec.

Three types of popular High Speed Rapid Roll Doors are:

Mini Roll
A light rapid door especially designed for smaller internal openings up to 3100mm wide and 3100mm high.

Instant Pass
A particularly robust fold up door for external and internal openings up to 20,000mm wide x 20,000mm high.

Instant Roll
A general purpose rapid roll door, for external openings up to 4000mm wide x 4000mm high.

A Rapid Roll Door can provide a significant energy savings and many companies can experienced a payback period of less than 2 years (subject to certain conditions).
