Large Agricultural Sliding Doors

Doors for Agricultural Units, Barns and Farm Equipment Stores.

Industrial Folding Sliding Doors can make a considerable enhancement to the effective use of a Farms Storage and Usable Workspace. Many Barns and Agricultural Units even now, still use hinged Barn Doors, which have usually been in situ since the erection of the building or unit. These traditional type of doors, quite often made from wood (as opposed to modern materials such as High Grade Aluminium or Galvanized Steel) often result in many operational and maintenance problems.

The principle operational difficulty with these hinged doors is that they limit access at the entrance of the buildings, where it is typically most restricted. Additionally, the security features of these older doors are usually confined to just a big lock or padlock. As many barns now contain equipment worth tens of thousands of pounds, these old style, insecure Barn Doors present a serious security threat to many Farming Businesses.

Ease Of Use

As with many typical farm days, when lorries and trucks come for collections or drop off's, they are normally on a tight schedule and therefore they want to be able to reverse as near to the entrance of the farm store as possible, collect or deposit their goods. The more efficiently this can be done the better. Time is money for both the farmer and the transporter.

Security

The security of hinged factory doors are an additional business risk that many farm owners should consider.

The new, industrial strength, Agricultural Sliding Doors, made, designed and installed by Wessex Industrial Doors, are specifically tailored to your needs with ease of access and security at the core of the process. The materials used are selected for the particular purpose they are to be used for and their easy slide engineering means that entry to the building is trouble-free and protected.

An additional value of these Sliding Barn Doors is that they can be manufactured for very large, wide openings and are the Door of choice for many big Agricultural Barns. They are also used in many Aircraft Hangars and Warehouses.

These premises frequently require the movement of large machines, vehicles or craft in and out of the premises. Working with any other type of Industrial Door, instead of Agricultural Sliding Folding Doors quite often proves to be totally unworkable.  

Sliding Doors Made From Galvanized Steel

Made from Galvanized Steel or where necessary, Aluminium, these large barn doors have the light weight and strength required to cover such large doorways and entrances securely but with the rigidity needed for such a large structural opening.

As you would expect, one type or style does not fit all and it is essential to chose the correct agricultural door for the requirements of your farm and the facilities and equipment used within it. 

Agricultural Sliding Doors Maintenance

Upkeep of these large sliding doors can be kept to the minimum level if, on a daily basis, the owner/ operator checks to ensure that:

  • Tracks are free of grime and dust build up;
  • All periodic cleansers and lubricants are applied; and
  • Regular scheduled maintenance is performed by a qualified engineer.
