The term ‘industrial door’ can be used to describe a variety of installations from personnel doors to roller shutters. The key difference between industrial doors and more typical doors is that they are designed and built to withstand harsher conditions, provide extra security and ultimately stand up to the challenges of an industrial environment. Spanning industries including manufacturing and producing through to storage and logistics, industrial doors are tailored to their unique environments, with IDE’s specialist engineers completing a site visit to determine exactly what is required from an installation.
Steel Hinged Doors
Steel hinged industrial doors can be used as fire doors, personnel doors, acoustic doors or security doors and are chosen by companies for their extreme resilience. Heavy duty hinges make these doors almost impossible to vandalise, offering superior security over traditional doors. As they are hinged installations, they are best suited to smaller entrances and are ideal for locations that require extra protection, such as main entrances or offices containing sensitive information or cash.
Also available in many different formats, roller shutter industrial doors are ideal for much larger entrances or those that require frequent opening and closing to accommodate the passing of goods or people. Larger in design and made from robust materials, these doors can go through numerous opening cycles per day without getting worn down easily and are typically heavier and larger than other models of door.
Sectional industrial doors are ideal for environments that have large openings but want to benefit from increased visibility into the space as they are available as fully and partially glazed installations. They help to keep heat loss to a minimum and can be placed on a number of tracking systems making them ideal for everything from fire stations to car showrooms.
