What Are High-Speed Doors? 

You might be unfamiliar with the concept of high-speed doors and are curious as to what all the fuss is about. High-speed doors are more advanced variants of door types you’re likely familiar with, such as sectional doors and roller shutters. Their popularity stems from the fact that, owing to more durable construction and an efficient operating mechanism, they can open and close much, much faster. 

Not only that, but they can sustain this massive increase in operating speed for a far higher number of cycles (opening and closing). They typically sport a strengthened drivetrain, strong but lightweight PVC curtain, and a high-speed industrial motor, all of which serve to support the rapid-fast operation. 

They are often more cost-effective to repair and require less maintenance, making them a far more budget-friendly option.  

High-speed doors are often referred to by other names, such as: 

  • Rapid Action Doors 
  • Fast Doors 
  • PVC Speed Doors 
  • Speed Doors 

They can be built using a variety of materials, from PVC to steel and aluminium. In the UK, a high-speed door is any door that opens and closes at more than 500mm/second. Besides opening and closing quickly, high-speed doors often have improved sealing to help keep out draughts and damp. And because of how quickly they open and close, heat loss is essentially negated, and pest activity is greatly reduced. 

Another name often assigned to high-speed doors is ‘Rapid Roll Doors’. This refers to the evolution of the high-speed door from the humble roller shutter door.  


What Industries Are High-Speed Doors Used In? 

High-speed doors are most commonly found in industries where the traffic of goods occurs, and any doors present must fulfil special requirements. For instance, if you’re referring to a temperature-controlled environment, you’d need fast opening and closing doors to maintain the internal environment. High-speed doors are used in countless industries worldwide for a variety of applications, such as: 

  • Food and Drink 
  • Clean and Pharmaceutical Processes 
  • Car Manufacturing 
  • Refrigeration 
  • Chemical Factories 
  • Hangar Zones 

Let’s take food production and other clean processes such as those involving pharmaceuticals as examples. Such environments require aggressive controls to prevent contamination and maintain the required standards of health and safety. Not only must the doors be resistant to corrosion, but they must also be able to maintain the internal environment. Rapid-fast operation minimises exposure time, achieving this very objective. 

In the car manufacturing industry, production times are often insanely high, with large numbers of vehicles being churned out in just a short space of time. Conventional doors are simply too slow, costing the logistics process precious minutes that quickly accumulate throughout the day. The rapid-fast operation of high-speed doors and low maintenance requirements allow for optimal daily performance. 

One other example of where high-speed doors are beneficial is at an airport or naval port. Such places require doors that operate quickly to allow for safe, easy, and convenient passage. High-speed doors can be built for larger openings, making them a great option for hangar entrances, etc. 

Benefits of High-Speed Doors 

High-speed doors are a welcome addition to any commercial or industrial premises. Simply owing to their rapid-fast opening and closing speed, customers who elect to have them installed can enjoy a wealth of benefits that include: 

  • Increased Productivity 
  • Increased Safety 
  • Reduction in Environmental Conditions 
  • Better Airflow Control 
  • Easy to Maintain 
  • Bolstered Security 
  • Reduced Pest Activity 

These doors open and close very quickly, more than 500mm/second, meaning that high-traffic environments won’t be slowed. Employees won’t need to wait for long opening cycles, meaning seconds saved that soon add up. 

High-speed doors have no moving parts and come with various safety features, such as obstacle detection, meaning that they will open automatically if an obstruction is detected. 

Easily one of the main advantages of high-speed doors is the notable reduction in loss of warm or cool air. Warehouses must be kept at a certain temperature to ensure optimal working conditions for employees. Doors opening and closing all day let heat out, but high-speed doors open and close so quickly that this becomes a non-issue. 

Likewise, temperature-controlled environments, such as refrigerated rooms, benefit from high-speed doors as they minimise the amount of cool air that escapes. In turn, this helps keep those heating/ refrigeration costs down. 

High-speed doors are very efficient when it comes to helping manage the airflow in a property. By positioning high-speed doors in dusty environments, they can help to reduce the amount of dust and debris that moves around the place, which is great for your employees’ health. 

Lastly, it’s worth noting that high-speed doors are great for keeping pests out and other unwanted guests. Because they are open for moments, the chances of someone slipping by are greatly reduced. Plus, our high-speed doors are made from highly durable metals, ensuring even the most determined thief is kept out. 


Our Services for High-Speed Doors in Clackmannan 

Now that you’ve had an opportunity to learn a little more about high-speed doors, it’s time to learn more about what BGS can do for you. As stated already, we can install, service, maintain, and repair all commercial and industrial doors, including high-speed doors. 



Here at BGS, we’re proud to supply and install the finest high-speed doors the industry has seen. Each one has been procured from a trusted manufacturer and has been built to an exacting standard, satisfying both national and European requirements. Plus, each door is built to ISO 9001 standards, so you can be assured of unrivalled performance, reliability, and durability. Introducing the HSi (95) – the only high-speed door you’ll need. 

There’s no denying that high-speed doors play a vital role in the logistical process and protecting commercial and industrial sites from loss of environment and unwanted guests. That’s why the HSi (95) represents such a solid investment. With this option in place, you’ll have a set of doors that will protect your property, keep out draughts, strong winds and damp, maintain the internal environment, and improve productivity. 

The HSi (95) affords users with many exceptional benefits, including:  

  • Decreased Environmental Impact 
  • Greater Operating Efficiency 
  • Increased Productivity 
  • Lower Energy Costs 
  • Reduction in Noise Pollution

The HSi (95) carries out both functions, insulating your warehouse while keeping intruders at bay. It protects against gale-force winds too, which is something that PVC doors usually can’t do. It is a stronger, safer, more efficient alternative to whatever older-style doors you’re currently using. 

The doors that we install are measured to fit the opening like a glove. Each door is constructed with a 95mm foam-filled lath that provides unbeatable levels of thermal protection. During the consultation, we can discuss other options with you, such as which of our Leathergrain Plastisol colours you’d like. 

You can also choose a polyester powder coat in any standard RAL colour that you desire. And you can choose from various activation options to suit your needs. Once we have everything we need, we’ll provide you with a FREE, no-obligation quote.

Planned Maintenance and Servicing Visits 

Even the best high-speed doors require some upkeep, and while it’s true that high-speed doors require less maintenance than other door types, it’s important not to neglect them entirely. Routine maintenance is essential for keeping on top of all the tiny niggles that can occur as a result of daily use. Maintenance is usually carried out more often, often monthly, or bi-monthly, though this varies from one case to the next. 

Servicing, on the other hand, is normally carried out annually or sometimes bi-annually. If maintenance is routine checks and odd jobs, a servicing is a deep dive and can often involve a full refurbishment of the door. You might consider this all to be overkill, but regular maintenance and servicing keeps the doors functional and operating safely. It addresses potentially costly issues early and ensures legal compliance while satisfying any obligations you might have to your insurance provider. 

Here at BGS, we recognise that no two clients have the same exact requirements, so no two maintenance and servicing plans are necessarily the same. We start with a FREE inspection and, from there, will determine the optimal plan for your needs based on the door’s age, usage, manufacturer’s recommendations, and current legal requirements. 

We’re beyond confident that we’ll have the right plan to suit your needs and budget, and we’ll make sure that you’re entirely happy with the arrangement before confirming it in writing. We’ll also use this time to discuss when would be most suitable for our team to visit. Visits can be scheduled for any time, thanks to our 24/7 availability, so you can opt for quieter periods when the doors are less active/ inactive. 

We’ll visit you at the pre-arranged date and time and perform a series of tasks, from spot repairs and adjustments to part replacements. Once done, we’ll record all work carried out in a Yellow Door Wallet which you’ll receive for your records.
