How Much Does a High-Speed Door Cost?
Ready to replace your overhead door? You basically have two options: get another old-school roll-up door, or invest in an energy-saving high-speed door. 

Industrial high-speed doors are the superior choice because they instantly: 

  • Boost productivity - the door can open/close in 1-2 seconds
  • Improve profitability - by slashing thousands of dollars from your energy bills
  • Minimize downtime - the door is self-healing and is always operational
But high-speed roll up doors cost a lot more than traditional doors. Or do they?

A high-speed overhead door typically pays for itself in 24-36 months. ROI can be achieved in as little as 18 months for high-utilization operations like food processing, cold storage, and pharmaceutical applications.

If you’re skeptical about the numbers above, consider this: a high-speed door is closed 757 more hours per year than a conventional roll-up door. How much time does it take for your current overhead door to open and close? High-speed roll-up doors open and close in 1-2 seconds which keeps your climate-controlled air (and profits) from floating out the door.
