High Speed Doors

High Speed Roller & Shutter Door Installs, UK

DP Doors & Shutters high specification high speed doors are designed for external use in high traffic situations. Two versions are available, either roll up or fold up.

In both cases, the high speed door and its associated operating mechanism come as a complete unit, with the electrical drive gear contained within the self supporting frame structure, which can be affixed either externally or internally to the building. This structure also contains the counterbalancing system, utilising weights or springs and making for smooth operation and fast opening of the door in an emergency.

High Speed Doors are flexible, being made from self extinguishing, Class 2 polyester fabric, hot sealed by welding and resistant to low temperatures. Transparent PVC windows, treated against ultraviolet rays, and of various sizes can be fitted and a choice of modern colours is available. Any panel contact points are reinforced to minimise wear and tear, and panels can be reinforced with horizontal steel tubes or incorporate a fabric self tensioning mechanism.

Panels fit deep into the vertical guides to minimise air leakage, but draught seals can be specified as an option to assist insulation on our fast acting doors. Every High speed Door incorporates two rows of send and receive photo cell units for safety, which stops the door and returns it to the open position in the event of any obstruction during the closing phase.

Reliable operating controls are essential and the electronic unit integrates control of the electric motor with the safety devices and operating controls. High speed Doors can be activated by various types of remote control mechanisms, such as photo-electric cells, microwave radar, mats and induction loops plus manual push button. An adjustable timer facilitates control of speed of operation and a manual safety device allows opening of the fast acting entrance in the event of power supply failure. Back up batteries are optional.
