Need A New Commercial Entrance Door? What To Know If You Want Affordable And Durable Options

by Gaëtan Meunier

If your commercial property door is old, outdated, difficult to lock, and it compromises the safety of your building, it's time to upgrade. You want to invest some time and money into having a commercial door expert come to assess the current door system, the expenses for an upgrade, and what new system would be the best option for your building. Here are some of the things to ask the door professional about while you have them at the property to give you an estimate.

Newly Designed Door Frame

Talk with the door installation professional about an impact resistant door frame that is both fire and water resistant. If its impact resistant it will be difficult for people to break into the door or for high winds to do damage. You want a door that is fire and water resistant to stop fire from spreading or getting inside, and water damage to prevent water from getting into the building. Aluminum is ideal because it's lightweight, durable and affordable.

Better Locking System

Talk about getting new glass doors with a better locking system to enhance security. This could be something that is controlled from the desk of a secretary or security guard, or a lock that you need to have a key code or scan badge to get into. Talk with the door installation expert about what the best locking options are for your property and the doors.

Improved Glass Options

You don't just want your new glass inside the aluminum frame to be thick. You also want it to be bullet and shatter proof, tinted for privacy and efficiency reasons, and streak-free. Ask about the different thicknesses of glass, to see how heavy the door will be when people try to pass in and out, and what they recommend with the frame and locking measures.

If you have to replace your door you want to choose something that will be a great protective investment for the building, not something that will just get you by. Talk with a door installation professional and as them to bring you a couple of different layout options to see how you can change the door or entrance to make it as safe as possible, and to see what they suggest you use in the space to make the area safe. Look at the options and get different quotes if you are unsure what model or price is best. For more information, contact companies like Caplan Bros Inc.
