A door can be a gateway to new possibilities and offer protection from the outside world. Manufacturers build high-performance doors focusing on two key goals: keeping people safe from inclement weather, danger, theft or vandalism, and providing ventilation for clean air.
High-performance doors provide industrial strength when you need it most under intense operating conditions. These industrial options can offer a facility many benefits, especially in safety and ventilation. Whatever the operation, these doors boost safety and efficiency for frequent opening and closing.
Door manufacturers design high-performance rollup doors to balance security and efficiency. Everyone wants to feel comfortable and secure behind a locked door. Yet, facilities often need to open and shut the door quickly and frequently during business hours.
Rollup doors move vertically and coil at the top of the garage door system to save space, especially if there is a low ceiling. A high-performance rollup door is a specialized tool for securing a facility from theft or vandalism while also saving labor hours with automation to open and close the door.
A high-performance rollup door controls a facility's airflow with thin strips of curved or flat slats of interlocking steel. The slats can come with a screen or perforated slats to filter out potential pollutants. The heavy-duty steel surface protects against extreme weather and impacts from pedestrians and vehicles.
Ventilation is key to protecting the health of workers in indoor environments. For example, garages with cars or trucks that emit vehicle exhaust fumes can pose a danger to lung health. Other contaminants like pollen, mold, and dust can also be dangerous to the health of asthmatic workers in many different settings.
High-performance doors use fenestrated slats to encourage airflow throughout a facility and improve overall air quality. Ventilation also saves money on maintenance bills since unrestricted airflow prevents mold growth in humid environments.
Rollup door safety is another critical consideration. The industrial-strength steel of the door helps secure against break-ins. At the same time, slats with vision windows aid in visibility so workers can be aware of the environment outside.
Some doors also come with an option for fire protection to prevent the spread of flames and smoke at high-risk locations.
