Commercial Roller Door Control

Use Casesvg>

Brief: I want commercial roller door control.

Roller doors are used in warehouses, commercial facilities, industrial plants and much more. In areas with constant traffic (from delivery trucks or forklifts, for example), such doors must have the ability to open and close quickly and easily.

Usually, these doors have a button placed next to them which has to be manually pressed to open them. The driver of the vehicle has to drive up to the door, get out press the button, get back in the vehicle, wait for the doors to open, then drive on – this all takes time.

To save time it would be good if we could set up intelligent commercial roller door control, which would allow quick and easy opening. In this Use Case, we’ll show you how you can achieve exactly that with Loxone.

Solution: Using Loxone to set up commercial roller door control.

By using Loxone Air Technology, you can quickly and easily set up wireless commercial roller door control for your customers. You can commission this in a new building or retrofit it into an existing building.

All you need to do is connect the door to the Nano IO Air. Then using a Remote Air, drivers can open the door while they approach. This will save them having to get out of their vehicle and will also reduce the waiting times.

Note: If Loxone Tree infrastructure is already in place, the Nano 2 Relay Tree could be used instead of the Nano IO. It not only has 2 volt-free relays (2x10A) but also includes current detection and end stop detection.

Why you and your customer should consider implementing commercial roller door control?

Implementing commercial roller door control not only makes life easier for anyone who has to operate it, saving time and in business time is money.

Every time the door has to be manually opened, time is lost. In isolation, this might not be a massive issue, however think about it over a longer period of time.

For the sake of simplicity, let us assume 10 seconds for the entire manual opening process (start, stop, operation, door travel time). Let us also assume that in a company with an 8-hour day, 5 drivers are employed, each of whom passes the gate 10 times per hour. Based on this assumption, we get the following results:

10 sec x 10 openings/h x 8h x 5 employees = 4,000 sec.

This corresponds to a waiting time of more than one hour per day or more than 5 hours per week. This time can be greatly reduced by implementing wireless commercial roller door control.
