High Speed & Steel Hinged Doors
Our high speed doors are designed for internal and external applications. The Rapide is heavy duty by nature and in most cases installed on external applications; the Swiftsafe light-weight Rapide is used for internal applications, both doors are designed to cope with high volumes of traffic.
Speed is important, both of our rapid roll doors feature a counterbalance system with AC inverter drive technology – smooth start and stop reduces motor gearbox wear and tear to provide long term reliability. Speeds are variable up to 1.8m/sec with half speed closing for health and safety purposes.
A fast acting door is crucial for busy fork lift truck activity and with the correct activation system can cater for many different types of traffic. Our fully trained sales engineers will provide expert advice to ensure the activation method suits all your traffic requirements.
