High-speed doors

Rite-Hite's Split Second and FasTrax doors are designed to be extremely fast and safe while minimizing energy loss and unwanted air filtration.


Rite-Hite Doors has expanded its line of high-speed doors with products such as its FasTrax line of doors and the Split-Second bi-parting door.

These technically advanced doors have considerably lower long-term energy costs than traditional, side-acting doors. It has a split-center design, allowing it to operate at speeds up to 120 inches per second. Its fast speed makes for less open door time, minimizing unwanted air infiltration and energy loss. The SplitSecond bi-parting door also has multiple safety features, including three sets of reversing thru-beam photo eyes ensuring fast opening if door is obstructed. It is useful in freezer, cooler or pharmaceutical applications.

Rite-Hite’s FasTrax door has a roll-up design that allows it to operate at speeds of 100 in./sec, minimizing air intrusion while maximizing productivity. In addition to reducing energy loss, the FasTrax’ high operating speeds decreases the likelihood of forklift collisions. However, if bumped or impacted, FasTrax can easily reconfigure itself to get back onto the door track. Its safety features consist of Soft-Edge Technology and thru-beam photo eyes, making it the safest in the industry. FasTrax can be used in a variety of applications including wash-down, high-wind, and cooler or freezer high-cycle application.
