Nergeco Entrematic high performance high-speed flexible doors
By increasing thermal insulation and improving the flow of goods in perfect safety, for both vehicles and individuals, while fully integrating into the constraints specific to each business, Nergeco Entrematic high performance high-speed doors have become the most reliable and safest technological standard.
Efficiency and safety rooted in day-to-day reality
With no rigid ballast bar, no rigid transverse detection component and no curtain captive in its slides, the flexible closing edge of Nergeco Entrematic automatic high-speed doors is free in its slides, can distort both vertically and horizontally, and is directly responsive over the last 15 inches. If touched while a vehicle is passing through, it moves with the vehicle horizontally without the least resistance; it directly registers this abnormal distortion and immediately retracts by itself above the obstacle (international patent). It reinserts itself in its slides at the next cycle without any action needing to be taken if dislodged by a vehicle.
On each access, the door opens at the last moment without posing a risk if touched, then closes again at the same speed – twice as fast as standard doors – without endangering users, vehicles or packages. Accidents and production stoppages are reduced, but by minimising the time it is open, it also reduces energy consumption and the risks of air exchanges. This is the Nergeco Intelligent Curtain (international patents).
A recent study by the CETIAT laboratory showed that Nergeco high-speed flexible doors fitted with the Intelligent Curtain, by opening just in time and closing twice as fast as traditional doors, can reduce exposure and energy consumption by 23 to 32% on each cycle [Study modelling the reduction in exposure over one cycle by a Nergeco high-performance door (opening just in time at 40 in/s, with fast closure at 40 in/s), relative to another high-speed door (fast opening, 80 in/s, slow closing at 20 in/s for safety reasons)].
External flexible folding doors
To provide effective protection from the environment, our high-speed external flexible doors use Trekking folding technology to provide greater wind resistance, up to 88 mph, along with better insulation.
The Trekking technology for Nergeco Entrematic automatic folding flexible doors provide greater wind resistance by increasing the number of stiffeners distributed from top to bottom of the opening. They tension the curtain evenly down to the bottom of the slides to provide better weatherproofing. They distribute pressure over the whole of the frame uniformly thus providing reliable and continuous operation, even when subjected to a high wind load, without jamming or flapping and without any unnecessary and hazardous weight at the bottom.
The closure edge is flexible and deformable both vertically and horizontally. With no rigid feeler bar or system to restrain the curtain in the slides, it can distort without knocking the vehicle on contact. Directly responsive over a height of 15 in, it registers the distortion and retracts above the obstacle. This patented property allows it to open just in time to provide access, and to close again immediately after at the same speed, thus reducing the exposure time of your building and energy costs due to air exchanges by up to 32%! (Study by the CETIAT laboratory)
Lastly, because the curtain does not roll up on itself, it can accommodate flexible wall insulators of any thickness suited to different insulation requirements, for example to stand up to cold or contain heat (in an oven for example), or to reduce acoustic transmission (in the case of high noise levels for example).
The frame of Nergeco Entrematic high-speed external flexible doors is independent of the building. Produced in steel for the widest spans (up to 2.150 sq ft), they can be made, for dimensions up to 20×20 ft, in new materials, more corrosion-resistant than stainless steel and thermal break by virtue of their nature. Depending on the options chosen, the direct motor drive is either built into the transom or protected under a cover, with a smaller number of moving parts for easier maintenance and longer service life. Numerous options are available to adapt these flexible doors to your requirements regarding transparency, thickness and density of the curtain, non-powered opening and transom shapes to provide access to the motor drive from the front, top or bottom. For greater productivity and uninterrupted service from the high-speed door, even in the event of an incident, its slides are of sufficient size to allow it to operate continuously even if its stiffeners are accidentally distorted.
Interior high-speed flexible doors
Adapted to each process, flexible roll-up doors accelerate flows while safely reducing opening times and maintenance costs.
For your internal processes, Nergeco Entrematic innovates again with the flexible, light and multi-directional contact detection of its Intelligent Curtain which provides you with maximum safety and minimum maintenance costs, while at the same time being fully suited to its working environment.
The experience gained allowing to it offer each customer the best insulation/access solution adapted each time to their special requirements led Nergeco in 1993 to bring together characteristics common to each of the main areas of industry, logistics and commerce, in its wide range of high-speed flexible doors. Often copied, these adaptations are not simple cosmetic arrangements but in-depth developments to best meet users’ requirements. For example, the frames and mechanisms of flexible doors designed for the food processing industries have, since 2000, used new multi-composite materials to replace stainless steel. Designed to withstand the most severe stresses of this industry, the formulation and design of the subassemblies using these materials significantly increases fatigue strength, resistance to galling, denting and corrosion in comparison with welded stainless steel solutions. Furthermore, as a result of their method of manufacture, they are smooth and self-coloured, with none of the assembly defects or crevices associated with welded structures.
This leap forward is of benefit to other industries as well, and these materials are now available to the “clean” trades, cold chain, logistics and distribution. Likewise, the cold chain benefits from our advances in heat regulation acquired on exterior doors, the food processing industry from our knowledge of aseptic techniques learnt from the pharmaceutical industry, all trades benefit from our experience in the compressibility and flexibility technologies needed to equip public access buildings with high-speed flexible doors offering maximum safety in excess of mere standards requirements…
This is one the advantages of fitting automatic doors made by a true multi-sector specialist!
Your fast-paced and rugged workplace demands tough, reliable doors that give you peace of mind. Our high-performance doors provide proven performance with maximum up-time and minimal maintenance. The TNR team custom builds the doors you need, especially for applications with:
- Rugged, harsh environments
- Door impact concerns
- High pressure and wind load
- High traffic conditions
You likely know that the purchase price of an industrial or commercial door constitutes only 5% – 15% of its overall lifetime cost. The majority of costs include maintenance, energy loss and early replacement. In addition to these direct costs, there are also indirect costs associated with a busy doorway. These include the effects of the doorway on worker productivity, as well as the quality and efficiency of the process at the facility. In most cases, the indirect costs outweigh the direct costs but are difficult to estimate accurately and are often overlooked.
TNR will design and build a custom door for your application that takes aim at reducing all the direct and indirect costs. We can show you how your investment in a TNR door will easily pay for itself during its lifetime. We have a broad range of door models to choose from so that you get the optimal solution for your operation.
