Healthy and Safety Compliance: Why Regular Industrial Door Maintenance Matters

Installing a highly efficient industrial door is one step towards improving work productivity and health and safety within your facility. A high-speed door with a fast and automatic recovery is a key way to reduce the risk of injury or accident should something become obstructed in the door opening. However, by not sufficiently maintaining your door system you could be putting people’s safety at risk and become liable for any problems that do occur.


Why does an industrial door system need regular maintenance?

In April 2009, two employees were in the process of repairing a roller shutter door that had been damaged after being struck by a forklift truck. The door had been knocked off its guides however the frame structure was held to the wall by 8 bolts on each side.

When 6 of the bolts were removed on one side, they attempted to manipulate the door back into the slides, however the roller door fell onto them and trapped them both. Both employees suffered serious leg fractures.

Luckily their injuries weren’t fatal, however their injury and their subsequent leave from work could have simply been prevented by a regular door maintenance service.

How a Zip Speed Door Can Improve Your Workflow

Within every industrial and commercial sector, whether logistics, retail, food, automotive or storage, it’s essential that an optimised workflow around entries and openings, or an efficient loading and unloading of goods is maintained.

High speed doors are valuable for efficient operations, as operating a slow door at crucial areas of traffic, can lead to a bottleneck and a slowed down workflow. Equally, if an obstruction should occur in or around the opening, a fast acting door would be able to easily and quickly recover and minimise disruption. Although a relatively new industrial and commercial door to the market, Zip Speed doors are seeing an increased uptake for usage across a range of environments – factories, warehouses, distribution centres, and cold storage facilities. Zip Speed doors provide a highly durable, resilient and efficient solution to enhance a fluid workflow across these different environments and ease pressure from high-traffic areas.

How does a Zip Speed door system work?zip speed industrial door

Zip, high speed doors can be used to optimise both exterior and interior openings, as they can tightly seal off your vicinity from harsh outdoor conditions and hygienically separate different sections within. Using latest technologies, Zip Speed doors feature an automated roll up design, simply slotting into compact free-standing side and head columns.

With a push of a button, either mounted beside the door or through a handheld remote device, the door will initiate, acting with a high speed for ease of use and efficiency. Zip Speed doors include options for motion detectors, to effectively respond to moving objects within or outside of the opening in all weather conditions. Additionally, induction loop detectors can be fitted so that the zip door reacts to stationary or moving vehicles. It will ignore pedestrians, so that inbound or outbound deliveries or goods can be transported smoothly and without stopping.

Boosting work performance

With increased efficiency, a Zip Speed door is an ideal system for busy industrial and commercial facilities, where time is valuable. In the event of an accident, where the door is dislodged on impact, an intelligently designed self-repairing system will be activated. The flexible zip, high speed door will recover its position with just one open and closing cycle, without damaging any obstructions. This makes them a reliable solution to minimise the impact of problems with workflow and the build-up of traffic.

As a strong, fast and durable door, Zip Speed doors reduce draughts and heat loss, so that desired temperatures can be maintained and energy savings can be made. This is why they are ideal for cold storage, clean room or food operations, where regulated temperatures and hygiene are critical to business. The Zip Speed doors will effectively keep out pests and vermin or dirt, as they are heavy-duty and have minimal opening time. As a highly resilient door, they are also wind load tested to category 5, providing greater protection for personnel and goods from extreme weather.

To find out how Zip Speed doors can improve your logistics and productivity, or to see our range of industrial high speed doors, please call us on 0121 565 6165, or email enquiries@ukrapiddoorsystems.co.uk.
