Roll up doors are a vital security feature for most businesses. They are relatively inexpensive and provide a number of advantages.
Furthermore, these doors are appropriate for various applications. They can be used as ventilated doors to provide enough air for your indoor space; as weather-edge doors with seals at the perimeter; and as counter service doors for small openings.
1. Easy To Use
The roll up doors are easy to open and shut. This is because of their operating mechanism that allows smooth movement while operating the door manually. Non-automated doors are usually fitted with a spring mechanism to help with manual raising and lowering of the door.
2. Overhead Space Saving
Since roll up doors can “roll” in a very small space, your roof doesn’t need to have dedicated track spaces to facilitate opening and closing. These doors fit right at the door aperture which saves you roof space. It is more useful in garages if tall vehicles are usually parked inside.
3. Saves You From Accidents
Ever had the door swing out in front of you when your hands are full? This problem is more frequent at storefronts. With a roll up door in place, you no longer have to worry about the gate crashing. The roll up doors opens up vertically and will not hinder your path when you’re loading or unloading from the delivery truck.
4. Saves Indoor Space
Along with saving the overhead space, a roll up door also saves you a few inches on the ground. So if you have furniture or a vehicle lying very close to the door, you can still open and shut the door easily. Garages with smaller driveways and facilities with limited indoor spaces often use roll up doors for this reason.
5. Weather Protection
If it is important for you to maintain temperature inside your facility, then a roll up door is your answer. There are double-skinned roll up options available, equipped with an insulating material in-between. These doors can protect the internal environment from temperature fluctuations.
Additionally, these doors come with a rubber seal which ensures tight closure. It also keeps water from entering the facility in case of rain and storms.
