A: High-performance doors are built with heavy-duty, durable components and are engineered to last in high-cycle environments – in contrast to standard overhead sectional doors.
A: Yes. Many high-performance doors are energy efficient since they feature fast opening and closing speeds that help reduce air infiltration. They also have durable weatherseals and other energy-saving features. In many cases, a high-performance door is recommended when it cycles 55 times per day or more, and can be equally or more energy efficient as insulated slower moving doors. Some models also offer insulated panels, providing even greater energy efficiency.
A: High-performance doors are built with heavy-duty, long-lasting components and tend to be initially more expensive than standard overhead doors. However, over time this cost difference pays for itself in the form of reduced maintenance and energy costs and a longer overall life expectancy – providing a better overall ROI.
High-performance doors have several typical characteristics, most often known by their powered operation (vs. manual), high cycle counts (100+ cycles/day) and fast opening speeds (20+ inches per second). High-speed doors are a specialized type of high-performance door, featuring higher rates of opening (minimum of 32 inches per second) and closing (minimum of 24 inches per second) and an auto-timed closing function, among others.
A: No. Rytec doors are neither fireproof nor fire-rated; such types are specifically designed for those situations.
