If you don’t know if this type of door is right for you, keep reading, and you’ll soon find out! When thinking about what you want in a commercial door, strength, security, insulation, and style all may come to mind. Now, speed is part of the equation as well.


Benefits of Installing a High Speed Garage Door


Many facilities can benefit from incorporating high speed garage doors. A door that can open and close more quickly increases security, and things that shouldn’t enter the premises, such as heat, wind, humidity, and animals, will have less time to enter.


Lower Energy Costs

During the winter, the door will be open for less time, so less heat will escape and less cold air will have time to swoop indoors. In the summer, more cool air will remain inside, and less heat will have time to enter your facility with a door that opens and shuts quickly. This can help save on energy costs year round.



When the door isn’t kept open as long, any merchandise that is temperature sensitive will be better preserved.



Time is a factor in everyone’s busy life. Waiting for a slow moving door to open and close several times a day can be frustrating. A high speed door will save you time and let you move onto your next task promptly.
