HIGH SPEED DOORS IMPROVE SECURITY

28-11-2016

Having reliable security for carparks, warehouses, and docks is an increasingly common requirement in the security-conscious world we live in. DMF analyses the best approaches for any given installation.

When choosing a security door, two factors are important: the level of security needed, and the type and frequency of traffic through said door. Every installation is different, and what works for one situation will not necessarily work for another.

For example, there are many types on the market that are used for large openings, but when traffic frequency is high, slow action type doors often will remain in the open position. This will not only compromise security, but any dust or temperature controls in the interior area.

A more appropriate installation would be an Efaflex High Speed door from DMF. This faster-moving door can be considered as an effective and reliable alternative to the standard roller shutter or sectional type doors, opening and closing with sufficient speed to ensure security and environmental control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The range of Efaflex doors provided by DMF have an opening velocity of approximately 2m/s. This will minimise the time the door is open, and therefore reduce the risk of being exposed to unauthorised entry.

The door blades are manufactured from various materials, including extruded double walled aluminium, insulated panels, clear polycarbonate, punched ventilated aluminium, and the less secure option of flexible PVC, more commonly used for dust sealing. 

The door blades are securely tracked within seals in the door’s columns, providing a greater level of vermin seal and security when compared to a roller shutter door. Further, the door blade does not roll onto itself but is instead tracked around a spiral design system, resulting in very smooth and quiet operation with very low wear.

The doors are driven by an electronic control system, with PLC, encoder positioning, and frequency inverter drive control, providing many program features to enable an efficient customising of the application. Being rapid speed, the standard outfitting comes with sophisticated sensors and many forms of activation, to ensure safety and ease of use.

Methods of activation may include pushbuttons, remote control, swipe cards, induction floor loops or various forms of active or passive motion sensors.
