Why You Should Install High-Speed Doors in Your Commercial Building

These are some of the key benefits of high speed doors:

  • They offer excellent access control and security thanks to their fast operation. They can be used as part of a wider access control system, or they can open and close automatically depending on access requirements and whether the door is internal or external.
  • Improved efficiency. Fast opening allows for the swift passage of traffic while at the same time managing the flow and giving a greater degree of control. The time saved by using faster opening doors when moving around a building will really add up, making a noticeable difference.
  • Excellent thermal performance. These type of doors help to save energy by reducing heat loss – they are open for less time so will better maintain the internal temperature. They can also be used in refrigerated areas to compartmentalise them and maintain the temperature as required. When correctly installed, high speed doors will be fully sealed to minimise heat loss when closed.

  • Vermin and dust control. These doors can improve airflow and prevent the passage of dust and other debris into areas where there may be sensitive production processes, or where machinery needs to operate in a clean and safe environment. This also improves the air quality for people who are entering the building. Thanks to their high speed operation, these doors can also provide effective pest control.
  • Internal and external applications. They can be used flexibly in a range of environments. They can be made to suit internal applications, as well as being robust enough for external use.
  • High speed doors from quality manufacturers are very safe to use and easy to maintain. They can also become a core part of safe working operations, creating a safety barrier between hazardous areas and other parts of a building.

How automatic doors help reduce your building carbon footprint

Reduce your Carbon footprint with LPS Doors

One of the key takeaways from COP26 was to secure net-zero by 2050 to stop the rising global temperatures. Global warming contributes to extreme weather conditions; not only do the rising temperatures cause drought, forest fires and rising sea levels, but the increased water vapour in the atmosphere can lead to flooding and destruction due to more frequent heavy rain and intensified hurricanes.

You can do your part in helping to tackle the climate crisis by taking simple measures to reduce your carbon footprint and the impact you are having on the environment.

A carbon footprint is the environmental measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by an organisation, person or product. Emissions from the operation of buildings recently hit their highest ever level with the building sector accounting for 38% of all energy-related CO² emissions.

For many companies, energy consumption is the main contributor to their overall carbon footprint, including heating, cooling, lighting, and operating equipment.

The more efficient companies are in their energy use, the greater the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.

How can automatic high speed doors reduce CO² emissions?

Door solutions play an integral role in the energy efficiency and environmental impact of a building. Heating and cooling systems are the highest producers of energy-related CO² emissions in a building. When a door is left open, heating and cooling systems work overtime to maintain internal temperatures at comfortable levels. However, it is not practical to keep an entrance closed all day for many businesses.

Due to the fast open-close operation of high-speed automatic doors, not only do they safely allow a steady flow of traffic, but they also reduce energy consumption.

An efficient, well-insulated and low-maintenance high-speed automatic door application can reduce CO² by reducing draughts, maintaining internal temperatures, and optimising traffic flow. They can also significantly reduce energy costs and create more comfortable working conditions.
