The Benefits of Metal Pedestrian Doors in Industrial Settings

If you run an industrial operation like a manufacturing facility, warehouse, or storage complex, a high-quality steel man door is a great investment to keep your business safe and secure. Here are some benefits of upgrading to a hollow steel pedestrian door.

  • Security. Steel pedestrian doors are designed to meet the high traffic demands of industrial applications. The thick steel door and frame prevent thieves and vandals from tampering with it or kicking it in. For added protection, you can outfit steel man doors with access-controlled locks such as mortise locksets, electrified panic hardware, and maglocks. That means you don’t have to worry about your high-value goods getting into the wrong hands.

  • Safety. Unlike glass doors, metal pedestrian doors can be fire-rated and equipped with exit devices for added safety. Many man doors that Creative Door Services™ carries come with a three-hour fire rating. This gives your employees ample time to safely leave the premises while blocking the spread of flames and smoke to minimize overall property damage. You can also get man doors in blast- and bullet-resistant versions to protect hazardous goods.

  • Durability. Steel man doors require little to no maintenance because they’re made of rustproof materials that resist cracking, bowing, warping, shrinking, and swelling. In addition, steel doors are easy and cost-effective to repair. This helps keep overhead costs to a minimum and improve your bottom line.

  • Soundproofing. Hollow metal man doors have a high sound transmission class (STC) rating. They're filled with a specialized acoustic core to minimize sound movement and reduce noise levels in your facility. This is ideal if you often run loud machinery or need to keep street noise to a minimum. Reducing sound pollution can also help your employees be more productive and focus on high-concentration tasks.

  • Insulation. A metal pedestrian door is a must if your business is in a cold climate. Steel doors have polyurethane or foam inserts designed to resist extreme temperatures like rain, snow, wind, and more. You can also equip your door with sweeps to ensure it’s as airtight as possible, helping you save money on your energy bills.

  • Convenience. Did you know you can easily retrofit the existing pedestrian doors in your facility with a simple swing system? Switching to an automatic steel pedestrian door can help improve the workflow in high-traffic commercial operations with people coming and going throughout the day.

Your pedestrian doors must operate as intended and provide the right level of protection. Therefore, if you need help choosing one for your business, the team at Creative Door Services™ can help. Our team can provide expert advice on which pedestrian door will work best for your facility.
