Efficiency of the supply chain, combined with employee wellbeing and satisfaction, are primary contributors to a productive workplace environment within manufacturing and storage facilities.
High speed roll up doors allow for rapid opening and closing and, together with their longer operating life and high safety standards, provide customers with an excellent return on investment as a result of faster turnaround times.
“If one also considers that high speed doors result in a more controlled ambient temperature inside facilities, their energy efficiency and contribution to a greener footprint and employee comfort becomes apparent,” says Wim Dessing, managing director of Apex Strip Curtains and Doors.
“Temperature and humidity control is enhanced through the elimination of excessive through flow of warm or cold exterior air into the workspace. As an added benefit, due to their speed of operation, Apex high speed doors reduce the influx of insects and other airborne contaminants that negatively impact on both employee wellbeing and product quality,” adds Dessing.
Unhindered traffic flow remains a primary concern for businesses. The Apex range of high speed doors incorporates a counterweighted balancing system that not only ensures high standards of performance and safety but also provides fast, semi-automatic reopening.
The Apex Sector high speed roll-up doors offer both functionality and performance. They are unobtrusive, yet are able to cope with the intensive demands of heavy and continuous traffic. The design features the integration of the actuator, controls, safety devices and balancing systems in one unit for cost efficiency and a reduced footprint.
The company’s range of Traffic high speed folding doors vary in sizes up to 8,000mm wide and
8,500mm high, making them the perfect solution for medium and large entrances, particularly where windy conditions are a factor, such as shipment and warehouse areas. They are constructed from strong self-extinguishing Class 2 fabric, which provides excellent thermal insulation and can also resist winds of up to 50km per hour.
The Apex Smart Reset door’s self-repairing curtain automatically resets itself on the first opening and closing operation succeeding an accidental bump. This automatic reset action means that employees do not have to waste valuable time manually resetting the curtain.
“It is important to consider the size of opening, frequency of opening and closing and the volume of vehicular traffic when selecting a high speed door. The Apex Strip Curtains and Doors team works closely with customers to find a solution that will provide a good cost to performance ratio. Based on our large customer base and the extensive knowledge we have gained over the years, we are able to guarantee a positive contribution towards business productivity,” Dessing concludes.
