What are the Benefits of Crash Doors?

PVC Crash Doors can be used in a variety of industrial sectors, such as:

  • Cold stores and clean rooms
  • Food preparation areas
  • Hospitals
  • Industrial units and factories
  • Postal sorting offices
  • Retail units and supermarkets

But why are they so popular? What benefits do they offer these businesses? Well, one of the main benefits is that they are a practical and economic solution to heat loss and noise pollution in the workplace.

Any areas in a building that are unenclosed can be prone to high energy costs as heaters and coolers have to work hard to ensure the temperature stays at a constant. If normal doors are placed on these spaces, they can slow down traffic or pedestrians travelling through the area. If you use flexible doors though, they are not only low cost and low maintenance, but they also won't prevent the speed of movement either, and they will also help to reduce energy waste.

One significant benefit of our crash doors is that because they are manufactured from PVC they are inherently more hygienic than other doors. Not only are they easy to clean, but they contain no gaps or joins, and so they do not allow moisture to pass through, which means they won't harbour any unhygienic pathogens which can cause bacteria to grow.

Our flexible crash doors are manufactured from impact friendly PVC which makes them one of the most durable solutions in the market. They are also easy to use for pedestrians and require minimal maintenance as well. They are available in either a single panel, double panel or tri-panel design which all offer clear visibility to help prevent accidents. The framework is also available to suit a variety of different environments. To find out more about the exact specifications of the crash doors that we have available, please get in touch so that we can go through the technical specifications with you.

As we have said above, our range of flexible doors are suitable for a wide range of applications, for both internal and external doorways, for light or heavy traffic areas, and they can cope with human, forklift or pallet truck traffic. They can be used in a variety of areas - not just hospitals- such as factories, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and warehouses.

If you are looking to reduce heat loss in your warehouse, then crash doors are not the only option. We also offer a wide range of strip curtains including perforated strip curtains, anti-microbial curtains and polar grade kits. On top of this, we also have a wide variety of pest control options such as fly zappers and anti-insect kits, and also industrial door seals and draught excluders as well.
