Traditional Canvas Speed Door
If you would like a traditional canvas High Speed Door, we can provide you with a quotation, but we find we are no longer asked to install these type of fast action doors as they are costly to install and costly to repair and as parts have to be imported, it means a slow turnaround.

SAFETY - Fast Action Doors - Important to Note!
♦ Avoid Unwanted Damage - Ensure your Eco-Strip Doors or other Fast Action Doors are ALWAYS raised and left up during gale conditions.
♦ DO NOT attempt to pass underneath a speed door once it has started lowering. Although Automatic Speed Doors have safety features, they can still take up to 0.68 of a second to respond to an obstruction. We have had some customers attempt to drive or walk through whilst it is closing.
The photo beams rely on the person standing in the line of the beam to stop the door from operating and the safety edge will send the door back up only once it has touched an object or person.
Unless a speed door has been set specifically to pick up walking personnel, they MUST use other entrance doors into the building. In this instance we also strongly advise our customers to erect signage to that effect.
A motion Sensor is a device used for picking up walking personnel. Please contact us for further information.
♦ NEVER reverse through the opening. Ensure you have total, clear vision of the entire door before attempting to pass through.
PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS!
If you are travelling through the opening at the same time the door is closing, you can cause damage to the door and your vehicle or injury to yourself.
If you think this type of incident could occur at your premises, please ask about traffic lights or other forms of alarms that can be installed to alert personnel when it is safe to pass through.
