About High-Speed Doors

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. Do not hesitate to contact our professional sales staff who will work with you to choose the right used high-speed door for your specific material handling needs.

Advantages of High-Speed Doors

High-speed doors offer numerous benefits for industrial and commercial facilities, including:

  • Enhanced Efficiency: High-speed doors can help improve the speed and efficiency of loading and unloading processes, as they open and close much faster than traditional doors. This allows for faster throughput and can reduce waiting times for trucks and other vehicles.
  • Energy Savings: High-speed doors can help reduce energy costs by minimizing the amount of time doors are open, reducing the amount of air exchange between indoor and outdoor spaces. This can also help maintain a consistent temperature and reduce the workload on HVAC systems.
  • Increased Safety: High-speed doors are designed to operate quickly and smoothly, minimizing the risk of accidents and injury. Additionally, some high-speed doors come equipped with advanced safety features, such as motion sensors and automatic braking systems.
  • Better Security: High-speed doors can help improve facility security by minimizing the amount of time doors are open and by providing a strong barrier against intruders.
  • Reduced Maintenance: High-speed doors are typically built to withstand heavy use and require less maintenance than traditional doors. This can help reduce downtime and maintenance costs.

Largely, high-speed doors offer many advantages for facilities that rely on fast and effective loading and unloading processes, including improved efficiency, energy savings, increased safety, better security, and reduced maintenance.

Applications for High-Speed Doors

High-speed doors are suitable for a wide range of applications in industrial and commercial settings where fast and efficient loading and unloading of goods is essential. Some common applications for high-speed doors include:

  • Warehouses and Distribution Centers: High-speed doors are ideal for facilities that handle a large volume of goods, such as warehouses and distribution centers. They help speed up the loading and unloading process, reduce energy costs, and improve overall efficiency.
  • Manufacturing Plants: High-speed doors can be used in manufacturing plants to facilitate the movement of raw materials and finished goods. They help minimize downtime and increase productivity by allowing for faster and more efficient loading and unloading./li>
  • Food Processing Facilities: High-speed doors are essential in food processing facilities where maintaining a controlled environment is critical. They help minimize temperature fluctuations, reduce the risk of contamination, and increase energy efficiency.
  • Cold Storage Facilities: High-speed doors are a popular choice for cold storage facilities because they help maintain a consistent temperature and reduce the amount of time doors are open, minimizing energy costs and reducing the risk of spoilage.
  • Retail and Commercial Buildings: High-speed doors are also used in retail and commercial buildings to facilitate the movement of goods, such as in loading s or service entrances.
