When one door closes another one opens

Stertil Stokvis has installed a RapidRoll 3000L high speed door for component manufacturer Tyco Electronics, replacing an outdated door.

The door is a hybrid of the 3000 security shutter door incorporating alternate transparent laths to allow natural light through.

The door moves at speeds of up to 2.5 metres per second, allowing high volume use. During the first two weeks of use it had more than 2,000 operations.

RapidRoll 3000L is designed for high traffic areas where fast operating speed and frequency of use are major considerations.

A lightweight curtain of alternating aluminium and clear PVC sections provides the door with a large through-vision area. Stertil’s DiscDrive mechanism prevents the door profiles touching during operation, limiting both noise and wear.

“The new door has transformed the working area around it,” says Nigel Leat of Tyco Electronics. “It’s faster and more reliable than the old door and the transparent PVC laths have been particularly effective, letting in much more natural light than before.”
