What is a Personnel Door?

A personnel door is a commercial door designed specifically for use by employees and are usually installed in busy internal environments where a constant daily flow of traffic is expected. It might sound similar to the average door, but how they are constructed varies from traditional entrances. Personnel doors are typically made from stainless steel and have heavy-duty hinges so that they can successfully withstand wear and tear from excessive daily use. Some options come with semi-insulating properties making them ideal for use in positive temperature environments.


Where Are They Commonly Used?

Personnel doors can be used across a diverse range of industries including everything from food manufacturing, warehousing to IT and sales offices. Generally, they are used to separate different types of room within a building, helping to maintain the temperatures on either side. They could be used to separate office space from personnel corridors in a traditional office or educational setting or could be used to separate quiet production areas from noisy factory lines in a warehouse. Whatever the nature of a business, it is highly likely personnel doors will be needed.
