Fast Action / High Speed Roller Doors

We have a solution for every door size and requirement from a vast range of the highest quality high speed door systems using the very latest technology.

High Speed or 'Fast Action' Roller Doors are used for many applications where high traffic volumes require a door to keep a building environment and temperature as constant as possible. The high speed door can travel up in as little as 2 seconds and close as quickly for maximum efficiency.

Warmth is kept in during the winter and warmth may be kept out in the summer depending on the buildings function.



Some door models are specifically designed to keep cold in for refrigerated rooms, warehouses, etc.. High speed (or 'fast action') doors are usually manufactured from very strong material with the option of clear vision panels built in so you can see what may be happening on the other side of the closed door. Samson also offer a range of high speed aluminium roller doors and 'spiral' doors an adaptation on a sectional door but operating at high speed.


They also help to keep dust, rain and wind levels lower in a building.
If they are to be used on the external perimiter of a building they are usually combined with another door such as a steel roller shutter or sectional door to secure the premises when closed during non operational times.

An alternative solution to this scenario is to specify a Hormann HS 7030 PU speed roller door which is one of only a limited specification insulated high speed roller doors in aluminium sections, available with punched and glazed vision panels. This roller door offers the best of both worlds, a secure roller door combined with high speed opening and closing - a true engineering masterpiece.

Fast action doors will keep the temperature inside a building as stable as possible whilst traffic enters and exits all day long. During winter months savings in heating costs can be enormous whilst maintaining a pleasant atmosphere for staff inside.

A garden centre is a good example where internal temperatures need to be kept constant not only for the plants but also the customers. Large garden centres will have regular movement of goods and people from inside to outside all year round. A cold store is another good example.

For division of internal areas and rooms within a building the high speed door is perfect and available in many colours with various sized vision sections.

Operation can be designed to suit the type and frequency of traffic too with radar detection, magnetic induction loops, radio control, wall mounted push buttons and so on. The level of safety is also extremely high with bottom edge sensor and infra red beams as a minimum.

Samson Doors
offer a full survey, supply and installation service for all the high speed doors along with service, repairs and maintenance packages to suit your doors.

The high speed door is an ever increasing requirement in our cost conscious environmentally conscious world. The loss of heat from inside the building can cost thousands over a year, especially in a large building, and the same for keeping a building cool in the summer.

The developments of high speed doors in the last 10 years have been enormous with reliability and safety being highest on the agenda to ensure a busy warehouse or factory is kept operational, even perhaps after a crash into the door. Safety to prevent any possibility of injury to staff or vehicles.

A modern high speed door offers so much more than it used to with modern materials and technology in electronics and motor drive units.

Samson can truly provide high quality doors capable of making your business run smoother and more efficiently.

Options for all high speed doors now include:

  • Vision panels for safety and allowing natural light into areas
  • Fast fix procedures for bottom rail sections accidentally knocked out in a collision
  • Insulated models for extra efficency and security on external openings on the building
  • Frequency Inverters for preserving the life of the door and electric motor
  • More access controls than ever before for total control of the door from nearby or as far way as required with safety controls to suit.

Samson can offer over 10 different types of high speed door solutions all depending on size, position, frequency of use, security requirements, insulation and other factors all making the recommendation important to ensure it is perfectly specified for the intended use.
A high speed door is normally quite a high cost investment and like any products badly specified can end up costing you a lot of money over a period when corners have been cut in the procurement process.

High Speed Spiral Door - HS 7030 PU

The superb new aluminium high speed spiral door from Hormann - the HS 7030 offers 2 doors in one - A high speed roller door for use in busy environments and an insulated roller door for use on external openings providing security as well as insulation.

Normally for an external high speed door you need a secondary door for security when the premises are closed but not with the HS 7030.

The double skinned anodised profiles with thermal breaks are available in a natural colour or a finished colour from a choice of around 200 RAL colours. The door is available in sizes up to 6500mm wide and 6000mm high and can open at speeds between 0.5 and 3 metres per second depending on specification. This door is incredibly quiet and with the technology used the slats have minimal contact to ensure longevity and low maintenance. In the event of damage the slat profiles can be replaced very easily and quickly keeping costs to a minimum.

Non contact roller technology for minimal wear Non-contact roll-up technology

The roller door sections are guided in a spiral bracket for especially fast opening speeds and precise door travel.

Thanks to new non-contact roll-up technology there is no wear on the door sections, which helps the roller door to keep its exclusive appearance for a long time.

The standard frequency converter control takes a lot of stress off the entire door mechanism extending the service life of the door. This is achieved by a slow starting and stopping procedure.

Uniformly foamed steel sections

Hot-galvanized, double-skinned sections with a PU rigid foam infill provide for particularly high thermal insulation values - with a UD value of 1.95 W/(m²K). (based on 25m sq.door surface)

Doors are supplied as standard in White aluminium (RAL 9006). Over 200 RAL colours are also available.

The exterior is characterised by the fine Micrograin lines, on the interior the slat sections are Stucco-textured.

Non-contact safety

A safety light grille is integrated in the side frame and monitors the closing zone of the high speed door up to a height of 2500 mm.

This takes away with the need for additional installations on the door (e.g. closing edge safety device or photocell).

This high level of safety gives a high-speed door that is exceptionally easy to fit and service.
