High Speed Rapid Doors
Marand required a high speed door to provide efficient access between two rooms inside their manufacturing facility. Remote activation was needed to permit prompt forklift access, for light traffic.
Our ES40 High Speed Door is an economy style door, typically provided without a fascia cover over the drum. This design varies from our standard HS series with a slightly slower motor speed of 0.7 meters per second and a less expensive segmented curtain, meaning it is perfect for smaller openings with lighter traffic, when you're on a tight budget. Commercial & General opted for this style door, but added the installation of a fascia cover up the top to maintain a tidy and aesthetic facade to the opening.
With floor loop activation, this application was designed to detect forklift traffic once it entered a certain space around the door, send a signal to the controller and open the door. Once the traffic had exited the specified area of activation, the door would reverse and come back down. This was also fitted with push-button activation for pedestrians.
One segment of the curtain was fabricated with clear PVC windows to allow visibility for oncoming traffic, and allow natural light to filter through.
