Have you ever explored the option of high speed doors, but wondered whether you really needed them? You might have liked the idea of a super fast roller door letting your forklifts operate in turbo mode, but didn’t know if you could justify the investment. The truth is, (though we don’t like to admit it), not every facility needs one.
