Saving energy is saving money
Since 2017, some companies have been obliged to prepare sustainability reports in accordance with EU Directive 95/2014. Whether you are forced by law or not, saving energy is saving money, so it can be worthwhile to learn how to save energy with your industrial door. Besides saving energy and money, you can also receive grants for energy-efficient construction and renovation in some countries
How can a (new) industrial door help to save energy?
When thinking about energy saving an industrial door, most people look at insulation first. But the use of the door is even more important. It would be a waste of energy if your leave your newly installed door open for most of the day, because you did not think about installing windows, a wicket door or a time lock.
- Fast closing and / or automatic doors
Do you now have a manually operated industrial door? Replace it with a fast-closing door and/or an automatic closing mechanism so that you lose less heat and thus save energy.
- Install a wicket door
You don’t have a wicket door in your roller shutter or sectional door? You can save energy by installing a wicket door. In this way, the entire door does not have to be opened every time a person wants to enter the building, which saves energy. With most sectional doors it is possible to retrofit a wicket door. A wicket door can be easily installed in the Compact folding door, even if the door has been used for a long time.
- Install an insulated door
Do you have an uninsulated industrial door, such as a traditional aluminum roller shutter, in the building? Now is the time for a well-insulated door that ensures a stable temperature inside the building.
4. Add Windows
Adding windows or (semi)transparent panels saves energy in two ways. Firstly, the door does no longer have to be opened to let natural light in. Secondly, you save money on electricitty if you do not need to have the electrical lights on. Windows can be added to older sectional doors as well.
