In the current cost of living crisis, and during a time where we are becoming increasingly conscious about our impact on the environment, reducing energy consumption is a top priority for businesses of all sizes. Energy costs can greatly impact your bottom line, and with rising energy prices finding ways to conserve energy is as important now as ever. At IDE, we can help with this through our high-speed doors.

Traditional overhead doors such as roller doors and swing doors, can be a major source of energy loss in a manufacturing or commercial facility. Every time these doors open they create a huge opening which allows heated or cooled air to escape. This change in temperature can lead to significant energy waste and increased costs, especially in facilities where temperature control is important. High speed doors offer a solution to this problem. These doors open and close much faster than traditional doors, which in turn lowers the amount of time that the opening is exposed. This significantly reduces air exchange between the inside and outside of your facility, helping to maintain consistent temperatures.

Benefits of High-Speed Doors for Energy Efficiency

Reduced Air Infiltration: High speed doors open and close in seconds, minimising the amount of time that outside air can enter your facility. This helps to maintain consistent temperatures and reduce the amount of work required by your HVAC system.

Improved Climate Control: By reducing air infiltration, high speed doors can help to create a more stable temperature controlled environment within your facility. This is highly important for many manufacturing processes, in particular those that require precise temperature control.

Choosing the Right High-Speed Door for Your Facility

There are a range of high-speed door options available on the market, so it’s important to choose the right door for your specific needs. Factors to consider include:

The size of the opening: High speed doors are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate different openings.

The type of traffic: Consider the frequency of use and the type of traffic that will be passing through the door.

The environment: Some high-speed doors are designed for specific environments, such as freezers or clean rooms.
