Won-Door’s Steelguard™ Horizontal Sliding Security Doors

Won-Door’s SteelGuard™ is the gold standard for horizontal sliding security doors. It’s a dual-purpose horizontal sliding, accordion-type security and fire door that provides remarkable security and access control. Here are some benefits:

They’re constructed with robust materials,including two independent walls of steel panels that canwithstand forced entry attempts and offer protection against unauthorized access.
  • Horizontal sliding mechanism. Unlike traditional swing doors, SteelGuard™ doors operate on a horizontal sliding mechanism. This makes them space-saving and efficient and suitable for areas with limited space or where swing doors may not be practical.
  • Fire protection. In addition to security, SteelGuard™ doors incorporate fire-rated properties. They can act as fire barriers, compartmentalizing spaces to prevent the spread of fire and smoke in emergencies. This feature is crucial for ensuring the safety of occupants within a building.
  • Customization options. Won-Door offers customization options for its SteelGuard™ doors to suit specific project requirements. This includes variations in size, finish, and integration with building systems such as access control and fire alarms.
  • Code compliance. Won-Door’s SteelGuard™ doors are engineered to comply with various building codes and regulations related to security, fire safety, accessibility, and performance standards.

Won-Door’s Durasound™ Sound-Rated Partitions

Won-Door’s DuraSound™ sound-rated partitions are an innovative solution for dividing large environments into multiple smaller spaces while maintaining acoustic isolation. Here are some key features and details about DuraSound™:

  • Accordion-folding design. DuraSound™ partitions utilize an accordion-folding mechanism, allowing them to expand and collapse smoothly. This design offers flexibility in configuring spaces, allowing you to adjust room layouts according to your requirements quickly.
  • Two-track system. The DuraSound™ system operates on a two-track system, which enhances its stability and ease of operation. A pin and roller suspend every panel and promotes smooth operation. This system enables each panel to move independently along its designated track, ensuring quiet and effortless partitioning of spaces.
  • Sound-rated construction and acoustic performance. One of the primary features of DuraSound™ partitions is their sound-rated construction. These partitions are designed to provide effective sound insulation, minimizing noise transmission between divided spaces. This is particularly valuable in environments where privacy and noise control are essential, such as offices, conference rooms, educational facilities, and healthcare settings.
  • Customization options. Won-Door offers customization options for DuraSound™ partitions to suit specific project requirements. This includes large and curved openings, allowing for tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of each application.
  • Space optimization. By dividing large environments into smaller spaces, DuraSound™ partitions help optimize the use of available space. This versatility makes them ideal for multipurpose venues, event spaces, hospitality settings, and other facilities where space flexibility is valued.
