Tips on Choosing the Right Industrial Door Systems

Finding the right industrial door systems for your premises may sound like a piece of cake, but get it wrong and you could cost your company dearly in terms of money and lost time. If the decision is yours to make, it's best to be informed and know what factors to consider. An industrial door system is an expensive investment, so it is one you will want to get right. If you want to make the most of your budget, here are our 5 tips for choosing the right industrial door system:


Satisfying your requirements

Satisfying your requirements

Whilst budget will probably be one of the most important factors in your decision-making process, it is also highly likely that you will need your new door systems to meet your own company requirements. This means that the manufacturer and installer will need to meet the industry standards and demonstrate good quality, as well as being competitively priced.


Being Energy Efficient

Being Energy Efficient

There are so many ways that businesses can save energy but minimising heat loss is probably the easiest to address. By reducing the amount of heat that can escape, through the constant opening and closing of doors in heavily trafficked areas of the building, your business can stand to make considerable savings on energy bills. High speed doors that close quickly once forklifts and other vehicles have passed through, and automatically shut when not in use would be a good choice for any business looking to be more energy efficient.


Speed and Productivity

There is nothing more important to a business than productivity, and anything which has a negative effect on it, could be said to be negatively impacting on the business as a whole. Waiting for doors to slowly close or open might only take a matter of seconds or minutes, but added together over the course of a day, week, month or year, can have a significant time impact on operations. If speed is of the essence to your business, then you would be advised to opt for rapid action doors that can help you achieve an effective workflow.


Expert Installation

As with any change to your work premises, the timing and speed of installation is key. Most businesses will welcome an upgrade to their industrial doors, but not if it causes huge disruption to the workplace, the workforce and productivity. The easiest way to overcome this is to use a recommended installer, with good reviews and high praise from previous clients. Look for a provider who will go the extra mile to stay onsite with you to make sure you know exactly how to operate your new door system.



As with any major business purchase, it isn’t just the product itself but the aftercare that will be important, after all it is this that will keep your industrial doors running efficiently for as long as possible. If durability and avoiding breakdowns is important to your business, look for an industrial door manufacturer that also offers a comprehensive maintenance programme as you know they will be there for you, should you encounter a problem.

We could talk all day about the important factors to consider when choosing new industrial door systems but the fact of the matter is that every business is different, with slightly different needs. If you can satisfy the main criteria that we have mentioned, then picking the right door products after that should come down to the provider that you like and trust.
