Hart launches Speedor Storm
11 February 2015
The industrial door is designed to offer a high degree of wind resistance.
Hart Door Systems, the creator of the Speedor high-speed industrial door brand now found on over 6,000 sites across some 20 countries, has launched Speedor Storm which incorporates a unique guide system which delivers exceptional wind resistance up to Class 5, over 90 mph.
Nick Hart, Hart’s technical director, says the door has been designed for specific applications where large external openings up to 8m, x 8m are vulnerable to wind. "Class 5 matches 12 on the Beaufort Windscale, the highest rating. Two Speedor Storms have been operational in an exposed site in Aberdeen for the last 12 months. This amounted to rigorous testing in a difficult and challenging environment without an issues arising. We achieve this with a reliable and clean in-line drive system complete with integral safety brake. It has variable speed operation and an optional break-away bottom rail with auto reset feature,” explains Mr. Hart.
Speedor Storm conforms with ISO9002/3 and the Machinery Directive for power operated doors, PREN 12453 and 12444. Operation is flexible through induction floor loops, photo cells, radar, vehicle mounted radio transmitters, pull cords, press button or hand held activation.
"We have a healthy order book for Storms largely for exposed warehouse and distribution facilities, factories and refuse and waste plants which are often edge of communities where noise and odour can be real issues. The fast open/close cycle delivered by Storm is therefore an important benefit for operators,” adds Mr Hart.
Storm use a multi-layered PVC and textile door fabric to ensure strength. It is tear resistant and incorporates braces with locking wheel assemblies for added strength. If required a vision panel can be provided.
