There are several key benefits to high-speed doors. For one, they provide more opportunities for access control and productivity due to the access point opening and closing quickly regularly. Second, the durability of these doors is phenomenal. They’re manufactured from rigid material so they’re able to perform a function repeatedly and easily. Thirdly, high-speed doors could save you a tonne of money through cost saving in the following ways:

  • Reducing repair costs from potential collisions of people, vehicles, machinery, or products.
  • More people or objects can get in and out, faster.
  • Better environmental preservation and lower maintenance cost all year round. 
  • Reduced air conditioning and heat costs due to insulation benefits.


Due to the latest technology available at our company, we can install both horizontal and vertical doors in orientation. Therefore we cater to all needs, aesthetics, and desires.

What is the main purpose of a high-speed door?

Simply put their main purpose is to open and close quickly which is why they’re often used by businesses or in commercial settings. They also, however, are great security measures that are very practical for speedy movement in a facility.

We have a great selection of high-speed doors but our most popular options are sliding and roller high-speed doors. They’re both in demand for several reasons and both types can have unique features which could suit certain industries and organisation types slightly more than others. Folding high-speed doors are fitted with a curtain of safety photocells for closing and safety photocells for opening as standard.

Folding high-speed doors are available in larger dimensions with high mechanical resistance which can be favored by industrial businesses. Sliding doors as you can imagine are fantastic for high volumes of traffic flooding in and out. Both options are brilliant, professionally installed, and capable of withstanding long periods of functioning.
As well to the initial installation, we also do repairs which can come in handy should you get a fault or problem. Although our high-speed doors are extremely reliable and durable, they can still come across issues over time. For example, a door that’s a few years old may have cosmetic damage or there may be a slight issue with the speed of the mechanism. We have a 24/7 call-out repairs team dedicated to helping you when you need us most.

If you need our repairs team you can contact us in several ways. You can call us on 01204 402 585, send us an enquiry via our contact form or send us a message on our Facebook page. We hope to hear from you soon here at UK Doors and Shutters Preston.
