Temperature loss in industrial premises costs businesses thousands of pounds a year, ensuring air leakage is reduced to a minimum is extremely important. The VR Speed Door allows quick entry and exit in a safe and controlled manner. Its lightweight and flexible curtain creates an insulated barrier that is also extremely hard wearing and is temperature tested to -30 to +70°C and a thermal conductivity of 0.045 W/mK.

The VR rapid roll door is commonly used in food and beverage premises, refrigeration rooms, transport logistics premises, vehicle manufactures, conveyor belts, pharmaceuticals industry, paint rooms, waste sorting, car washes, warehouses and ship yards.

The VR Door is a vertically rolling speed door that is most suited to indoor applications with light air pressure, however due to its wide range of operation, extra adaptations to other environments are possible.


  • Rip-proof, double layered metal reinforced PVC vertical door.
  • Galvanized steel framed structure acts as a frame and as a guide track for the PVC sheet.
  • All sides are protected by nylon brushes to avoid scratches on canvas when running.
