Spiral Doors

High-speed spiral doors.
The original and still the best.

It may be difficult to imagine, but the spiral door mechanism was designed by EFAFLEX over 25 years ago. Since then it has been copied by many, but remains unrivalled for speed, and durability. It is the world’s fastest vertically opening door, with operating speeds up to 4 metres per second.

The range combines a unique blend of features and benefits, making it the high-speed door of choice across a wide variety of industry sectors including manufacturing, warehousing, car parking as well as applications including cleanroom and deep freeze.

It’s super speedy opening, minimises exposure, whether that’s to the elements if used as an exterior door, or between zones to improve airtightness as in cleanroom and manufacturing applications.

Some of the unique features include the EFA-THERM® laths – the individual panels used to construct the door blade which can deliver exceptional heat insulation of between 0.66 and 1.52 W/m²K.

The unique EFAFLEX spiral design, copied but unequalled.

Copied a thousand times – but still unequalled. It’s hard to believe that the spiral design was introduced over 25 years ago, since which time many have tried to replicate the speed, and performance, but it remains unequalled. The door leaf is wound on to a shaft and kept in a space-saving manner. This function guarantees a number of unique advantages: highest opening speed, long service life and efficiency – perfect!

Oval spiral and low headers

If you are limited for head height, then no problem. We can tailor the spiral mechanism to suit; the circular spiral is standard and offers the fastest opening speeds, but where head height is restricted or limited, then the oval spiral takes less space while the low header is ideal for the most limited, such as car parking entrances.

Unique, innovative safety features

As you’d expect, not only are our high-speed doors designed bespoke to your application, so too is the method with which you choose to open them.

Some opt for a remote-control mechanism which can trigger the door to open on approach from the comfort of a forklift truck cab. Others prefer a more automated systems such as our laser scanner (EFA-SCAN®), which was the first of its kind to be incorporated into door systems. Those that operate within hygiene or cleanroom environments, then our latest ‘wave’ device is ideal. Simply wave you hand in front of the mechanism for a touch free, hygienic opening.

Opening style for every height

Regardless of the space and height you have available, we have an opening mechanism to suit. Circular spiral gives speed, whilst the oval spiral compensates for restricted space. Lower head height still, then the low header is ideal for you.
