Rapid Action Doors

ACE offer a comprehensive range for high speed roller and high speed insulated doors for internal and external installations .
The High speed automatic opening and closing of these rapid roll doors will provide valuable energy saving by maintaining the internal room temperature and also reduce contamination from airborne pollution and ingress of insects and vermin, essential in controlled warehouses and buildings.

The environment is also improved dramatically by controlling vehicle traffic flow, easing the vehicle access on the most used doors.
With a travel speed of up to 1.2 metres a second with some doors the operation cycle can be completed in a very short time indeed, keeping the inside atmosphere as stable as possible all year round. Access control can be with remote control, readar sensors, ground loops, push button, key cards, digital code pads, finger readers and other devices all to suit your individual needs in the warehouse or factory.

All the high speed doors we supply meet the very highest levels of safety and are tested, CE approved and offer long term durability through some very technologically advanced features.

Frequency inverter control is fitted as standard on all single phase high speed doors to ensure the fastest speeds and the lowest rate of wear. The entire door mechanism is relieved through the slow start and slow brake action taking undue stress off the components. We offer both single and three phase electric operation with the added option of an uninterruptible power supply to ensure the door will open in  a power failure situation.

The high speed door  range includes both vertically and horizontally opening transparent doors with a flexible curtain. They are readily available to be installed in combination with sectional overhead doors and roller shutters, as well as with the powerful new technology of the spiral doors with smooth, strong aluminium profiles.


Industrial Roller Shutters

Roller Shutters are one of the most versatile door products available for access control to most sizes of opening or covering and securing doorways, windows and other apertures. The roller shutter door is always made to order and requires very little space above, outside, or inside an opening.

There are well over 50 different curtain slat types that can be used to construct a roller shutter curtain and all of them have different levels of strength, security, insulation and surface finishes available. Steel or aluminium are the 2 main materials for the roller door curtain construction.

Roller shutters are strong and efficient and are suitable for a wide range of applications, from small security shutters to large industrial uses. These doors are both economical and robust which makes them one of the most popular types of industrial doors on the market.

Up to a certain width and height most roller shutters can be either a manual or electric operation but when you get to a certain size and therefore a certain weight limit the roller shutter will have to be electrically operated and if properly specified it will always have some kind of emergency manual override system in case of a power failure. The range of controls available for operating a roller door are vast and ensure that in a commercial or industrial application the very best and safest control can be used for efficient daily use. When used for security purposes you have the choice of very high security access control methods such as finger readers, digital keypads, key switches and so on.

The versatility of the roller shutter means that options such as polyester powder coating and plastisol parts are readily available on the slats, guides and hood covers making perfect colour co ordination possible.

Ace have a comprehensive Roller Shutter Manufacturing facility and are able to fabricate all sizes from small window shutters to large agricultural buildings and hangers. All our shutters are made in house using our cold rolled forming machine to produce the door lath. Solid steel angles are utilised for supporting the barrel assembly and quality motors both in single and three phase are used to power the shutter for many years to come.

Not all Roller Shutters are the same !!!!

Fire Resistant Shutters

Fire Shutters  are similar to conventional steel slatted and galvanised steel roller shutters that operate vertically, closing in the event of a fire. Our fire shutters are available in safety ratings of up to 4 hours. One of the main benefits of Fire shutters is there ability to act as a means of physical security during normal use and a fire safety shutter in the event of a fire.

Security and fire protection combined – available in one, two or four hour ratings.

A Fire Shutter is an electrically operated vertical fire shutter, consisting of a steel slatted curtain and galvanised steel box assembly and guide rails. The box, curtain, guide rails and bottom rail can be powder coated as an optional extra. 

Designed to be a security barrier during normal use and to be closed automatically during a test or an emergency situation. In the event of receiving a fire alarm signal the barrier will perform a powered descent to create a fire resistant barrier.

In the event of power failure Flame Shutter will close using the battery backup feature. Flame Shutters design allows for both face or reveal installations.

Insulated Sectional Doors

Industrial Sectional Doors are vertically-opening doors constructed using multiple panel sections built to withstand heavy usage using double skinned steel foam filled panels. The vertical opening of these doors creates more space in front of and behind the door allowing you to park vehicles closer and utilise more room inside the building.

When open, the industrial door sections neatly fold up and lay flat beneath the ceiling. For angled roofs, special tracks can be ordered so that the door panels open in line with the roof.

Manufactured to your specific requirements, each of our industrial sectional doors provide reliable service & exceptional ease of use combined with an outstanding level of access control capable of withstanding high usage volumes to cope with all levels of industrial workloads. 

The sectional door for nearly every standard application is a double skinned, foam filled 40mm thick panel making the door very robust in all sizes up to 8000mm wide and 6000mm high.

Sectional overhead doors offer the very highest level of insulation and Ace Door Systems proudly offer their range of sectional doors. We consider these industrial sectional doors to offer an uncompromising level of quality and reliability not just for the door panel and operating mechanism quality but also the highly developed and state of the art access control and automation systems used. The excellent pricing of the sectional doors also makes it a very sensible and attractive solution for most commercial and industrial premises
