Working efficiently means working economically. Novoferm rapid roll doors help you improve your logistic performance. Novoferm offers a customized solution for almost every situation.
Our in-house research and development departments respond alertly to changes in the requirements that rapid roll doors have to satisfy.
Industrial buildings already have to comply with increasingly stringent energy saving requirements and this trend is forecast to continue. Research performed by the Technical Unversity of Munich has shown that rapid roll doors have a significant effect on the amount of energy consumed in industrial buildings. The study shows that the interior temperature of a building or room plummets when the door is left open (depending on the temperature differential and type of building). Consequently, the shorter the period of time that a door remains open, the lower the drop in interior temperature. Draughts are also significantly reduced, which helps maintain a more comfortable environment in the building and reduces sickness absenteeism.
Working efficiently means working economicaly
When a door is used infrequently, insulation is of great importance. However, when a door is used frequently, the speed at which it opens and closes, and the height to which it opens, are much more significant. The latest generation of Novoferm control units features an adjustable half-height stop setting as standard. In combination with the "Auto-close" function, this feature allows you to achieve considerable energy savings.
Regardless of the type of door, the energy loss through an open door will always far exceed the degree of energy loss due to heat transfer and air leakage through a closed door. Research at the Technical University of Munich has shown that installing fast-action (roller) doors and avoiding long periods spent in the open position can reduce the additional energy requirements by as much as 30%! Interlocking two doors to create an air lock results in even greater savings and can improve the interior climate by up to 90%.
All automatic doors must comply with European Directive EN 13241-1. Novoferm develops and produces its new products strictly in line with these standards. As a result, you are guaranteed safe operation during daily use, assembly and maintenance.
Efficient use of energy, also during produktion
Novoferm signed the group’s ‘Green Solutions’ Charter In 2009. This consists of a package of concrete measures designed to reduce CO2-emissions during production, delivery, assembly and maintenance of industrial doors.
