Selling the Benefits of High-Speed Doors to your Customers

Ranger Fi

High speed doors bring productivity and energy efficiency benefits, so why aren’t more customers fitting them?

GfA estimate that only 5 to 10% of industrial doors supplied in the UK market are equipped for high speed operation. They simply can’t understand why this isn’t nearer 50%. With the productivity and energy efficiency benefits of high-speed doors well documented, GfA would like to know how they can help you persuade your customers that high-speed doors are a necessity rather than a luxury?

Halve door opening times and save time and money

Using a GfA high speed Fi drive means shipments can be unloaded more quickly, temperature is easier to control and heat isn’t lost or allowed to enter cooled environments.

Doors on the GfA factory in Warwick (4130mm x 4440mm) illustrate the huge time savings that can be made using high speed drives. With a standard GfA Safedrive® the door opens in 18 seconds, fitted with a high speed Safedrive® Fi drive the door is fully open in just 6 seconds.

In addition, an Fi drive is smoother in operation thus reducing stress on the door mechanism and allowing for more operational movements when compared to a conventional door drive.

Safedrive Fi
Fi drives are ideal for high use doors and shutters where fork lift use, loading and unloading is frequent and where waiting 15 – 30 seconds for a door to open is just too long. They are also essential for areas where security is a key issue (criminal detention centres, cash warehouse centres, car parks and airport baggage handling areas) and for sites where heat or cold loss could add significant running costs for the customer.
