At this years event Ro-Dor will be exhibiting their DYNACO rapid door. The Dynaco door range has a number of benefits with regard to safety, notably the absence of reinforcing bars, whilst still providing resistance to wind.

This door range has a knockout facility with automatic re-insertion, often a must with fork lift presence, making the crash resistant Dynaco rapid roll door suitable for internal & external applications. Other contributory factors to the doors success with those responsible for Buildings & Plant Maintenance are the cost savings on heating buildings where doors are left open for long periods of time, these cost savings can often fund the cost of a door within a year.

The DYNACO range fits perfectly with our well established range of Industrial doors & Loading bay equipment.

By applying a proven formula, using the following criteria, an estimated cost saving can be generated for customers installing rapid doors to the exterior of a building aswell as the payback time on the door itself. These criteria are:

Geographic location, present door type, door width, door height, working days per year, number of working shifts, average temperature on external side in Spring & Autumn & Winter, temp on internal side, Energy cost (electricity), average wind speed in locality, type of Dynaco door, number of Dynaco doors (expected cycles per shift), type of Dynaco curtain, average time for one complete cycle and finally the purchase price of the door.

“Open The Door To Savings”
With heating costs spiralling, winters like the one we are experiencing and a slowdown in general terms any cost cutting measures become imperative.

You may think at present an outlay of £10,500 is a cost, not a saving, but recent figures prove differently. Here is an example:

A customer has a door of 5m wide x 5m high which remains open 8 hours per day. The inside temperature is 18°C. Outside, the average temperature is calculated to be 8°C (calculated in the colder months when heating is on), with average wind speeds of 11km/h. The customer needs heating for 120 days per year. In this case installing a Dynaco door with an opening time of 20 seconds per cycle and 200 cycles per day the resultant saving would be an estimated saving of £48,286,00 per year (based on a cost for heating of £0,06 per kW/h)*. With an average cost for the door at £10,500 the time of return on investment is just 5 months.
