High-speed doors are considered high performance doors by the Door and Access Systems Manufacturing Association (DASMA). For a door to be considered high performance it must be powered, non-residential, and either high-cycle (100 cycles/day minimum) or medium-speed (20 inches/second minimum). Other requirements in North America are that the door must meet two of the following three conditions: made to order for exact size, able to withstand impact, or designed to handle heavy usage with little maintenance.
High speed doors are popular in several different industries where heavy traffic of product occurs and climate conditions must be maintained. In the food and beverage industry, high-speed doors cut down products' exposure to the open air, which reduces the risk of airborne contamination. In this application, doors are typically made of stainless steel or other composite materials that will not corrode.
High-speed doors will increase efficiency by reducing waiting times and accelerating processes. They also reduce energy consumption by reducing a climate-controlled environment’s exposure to outside air. ASI has a large inventory of different used high-speed doors in stock.
