Michigan Commercial Door is on a Roll with Industrial High Speed Rapid Roll Up Doors!

Today, selecting the right industrial door for your facility can be more complicated than ever. There are a variety of doors on the market today, so it's easy to understand why choosing the best industrial door is a difficult decision.

In addition, not all doors are the same. A misapplied door can cause serious problems with environmental control, efficiency, durability and safety, while a properly applied door can: improve safety, increase productivity, save energy, minimize maintenance and repair costs, enhance plant productivity, and provide the best overall return on investment.

High Speed Rapid Roll Doors speed up production and lower maintenance costs. High Speed Industrial Doors are made of an impact absorbing fabric that resists damage from even the most aggressive high-lo driver. Moving at speeds of up to 12 feet in less than 3 seconds solves many problems, including:

  • Temperature control
  • Bottlenecking
  • Downtime as a result of impact
  • Paying for itself within two years.


Difference between a High Speed Door and an Industrial Door:

High speed doors:

Are designed for fast open and close, allowing people and/or equipment to move quickly through the opening. When properly applied, they can increase environmental separation, productivity and safety, and reduce maintenance costs.

Industrial doors:

Are barriers used to separate environments of a facility, yet allow passage through when needed. There are many different types of industrial doors, including: high speed roll-up doors, bi-parting doors, bi-rolling doors, sectional overhead doors, rolling steel doors, screen doors and impact doors. Each type of door can bring distinct features to an application.
There are two basic designs of high speed doors: roll-up and bi-parting. Roll-up doors open vertically, while bi-parting doors open horizontally from the center. The specific application must be examined to determine which style is ideal, as each design has distinct features and benefits.


There are six factors to consider to help you determine the best total door solution for your facility:


-       Environmental Control The most common reason for purchasing a door is to separate different environments. There are several factors which can affect environmental control. These include: environmental separation, sealing, speed of operation, security and quality control.


-       Efficiency Improve the efficiency of a facility by allowing fast passage time of equipment to move quickly through the opening, increasing productivity. Also, optimizing the traffic flow through a facility will improve efficiency, and will increase the productivity of your employees.


-       Durability The durability of a door can be determined by the following criteria: performance, impactability, maintenance needs and service support.


-       Safety Because safety is important at every facility, factors must be considered which can affect safety. The type and flow of traffic at the opening can contribute to safety concerns. Also consider visibility needs at the opening. A high traffic opening will require more visibility than an opening with minimal traffic. Finally, look for the potential for accidents.


-       Activation properly activated doors can provide many benefits. Use activation to your advantage to improve safety, increase environmental separation, customize door operation, improve productivity, eliminate false cycles, minimize door impacts, and lower maintenance and downtime. To determine the best activation for your application, look at the traffic, equipment going through and around the opening, the physical characteristics of the opening, and the types of activation offered.

-       Selection The door manufacturer you choose should provide a total solution, not just hardware. You should expect innovative products with state-of-the-art features. Make sure you select a manufacturer and local dealer who stand behind the equipment and provide complete service and support. Ask about a company's track record with existing customers. Ask for a product demonstration, and visit a field site where the equipment has been installed for some time. Check out the availability of service specialists. Ask about guaranteed life expectancy of the door and make sure you get written warranties.
