Industrial sectional doors are used by companies of all kinds – not just the industrial ones. It’s possible to have a door of this kind to protect various properties from break ins, vandalism and other kinds of criminal damage or activity, rather than having to install large alarm systems, or relying on these alone. They can offer an excellent degree of security as well as coming with a whole host of other benefits.
So what are the specific benefits of industrial sectional doors and why are they chosen by so many companies? Here are some of the key need to know aspects of deciding on a sectional door, specifying it and choosing the correct supplier for it.
What are the benefits of industrial sectional doors over other kinds of door?
These are the main benefits to think about when deciding if an industrial sectional door is right for you:
- Security. Most companies select this particular type of door due to the excellent levels of security they will provide. It’s important to know you can get a good degree of security from your doors, rather than having to hook your building up with various alarm systems or even hire a security guard full or part time. These are all options you can consider in addition, but it’s good to have a door as your foremost protection. It’s better than a door that is designed for its looks and its aesthetic benefits rather than security. And if aesthetics are still important, you can choose a sectional door that is designed to look good as well. The two are not mutually exclusive and sectional doors designed for security can also look very sleek.
- Efficiency. Don’t forget that any type of sectional door is electrically operated, so it’s a good decision for efficiency and ease of operation. They can be fully automated or they can be designed with a remote control system to control access and ensure it is only opened for authorised people.
- Space saving capabilities. The design of a sectional door makes it a good option for saving space inside a warehouse or a storage facility, where space is at a premium. The more space you can save, the more storage you get, so it’s an operational and a money saving exercise. A different type of door that is more efficient with space can make the difference between having to rent or buy additional storage space, and being able to continue using your existing space. Any time you can save space, this can also be thought of in terms of saving money for any kind of business that runs on operations. It’s a good option for efficiency.
- Cost. An industrial sectional door isn’t the cheapest but also isn’t the most expensive option, and the money it can save you on operational costs can more than make up for the initial costs. If you are buying and installing multiple sectional doors, it may be possible to negotiate a better price.
