When operating your own business building, high speed garage doors are somewhat of a necessity. They are a tool to help improve efficiency and keep your team moving in the right direction.

Without the help of high-speed garage doors, it could majorly impact your team’s productivity levels, airflow, and overall security of your facility.

At The Door Company, we help businesses find high-speed garage doors that expertly pair with their facility. Once these doors are installed, they often experience improved airflow control, reduced energy costs, and increased security.

However, if you have an “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” mentality, you may not see the value in switching out your traditional commercial garage doors.

We’re here to walk you through the different high-speed garage doors, accessories, and options we have available.

Let’s take a closer look:

What are High-Speed Garage Doors?

High-speed doors are also commonly referred to as high-performance doors. They are tools that help create a functional barrier designed to open and close quickly. With high-speed doors in a commercial setting, you can reduce energy costs and increase workplace productivity levels.

Customizing your High-Speed Doors for Your Facility

Choosing an Industry

There isn’t a one size fits all high speed door that every business can use. These doors vary by industry and need. We offer options for warehouse, food processing, clean room, freezer/coolers, and heavy industrial.

For example, high-speed rolling doors are commonly used in the food processing industry. However, they aren’t always seen with many other applications.


There are two types of paneling available: Vision and mesh panels. Both paneling styles allow more light to come into your space and improve visibility. These can also be great add-ons for safety and security reasons.

Curtain Material

There are three types of curtain materials: Multi-filament, rubber, and vinyl. All three materials are designed for high-cycle application and allow for quick response signs.

Depending on the height of the commercial garage doors, all materials can easily fully open in four seconds or less.

When deciding whether high-speed vinyl or industrial rubber doors are best for your business, consider the industry you’re in and what the doors will be used for daily.

High-Speed Door Accessories

Outside of panels and curtains, we also have a suite of high-speed door accessories to provide you with a full-fledged, custom experience.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the accessories we can accommodate:
