Office Doors Some Ideas For Your Office Refurbishment

Any office refurbishment project is very likely to include a review of office door requirements - including health and safety regulations as well as functionality and aesthetics. This review presents some key office door types, each of which addresses particular needs and budgets for your office / buildings upgrade ambitions.

Automatic Doors

The type of doors you choose will depend on a number of criteria, including budget, the entrance size and volume of pedestrian traffic, and the type of traffic.

Questions to ask include whether the installation will comply with regulations covering safety of powered doors for pedestrian use and the guidelines which cover both the provision and fitting of safety devices. Also, of course, can the installation meet all provisions covering fire precautions in the design, construction and use in buildings?

Sliding Door Installations

The best sliding doors are packed with customisable features that allow you to adapt them to suit your specific operational requirements. Your supplier should guide you through the topics of curved doors, multi-activation opening, multi-function operation and low noise systems. Discuss also the topic of testing - be assured that your doors will give you many years service and incorporate the latest noise reduction technology ensuring consistently quiet operation.

Hermetic Sliding Doors

Hermetic doors are used in hospitals, operating theatres, pharmaceutical manufacturers, micro-electrical plants, food processing and other environments which require an optimum standard in cleanliness and protection from germs.

A hermetic door is not only secure, but additionally offers sound insulation and heat preservation. It can also protect against anti-differential air pressure, fire, dust and radiation.

Hermetic doors can be activated via a choice of methods including detection sensor, foot switch, door button, fingerprint biometrics, remote control (such as CCTV or intercom) or access control systems (such as ID badges or Key fobs)

Revolving Doors

A revolving door usually comprises three or four doors hanging on a centre shaft. These rotate around a vertical central axis within a round enclosure. Revolving doors can be seen as a statement of prestige for a building and its architecture. This is possibly true, but they can also save money longer-term. As an office entrance, revolving doors offer a major advantage in energy efficiency by eliminating draughts, thus reducing heating or air-conditioning costs for the building.

Additionally, revolving doors allow large numbers of people to pass in and out, offering you a steady, safe, smooth and convenient entrance.

The selection and specification of each of these door types requires considerable expertise. Ideally you should find a main contractor for all your office door installation needs, one who can offer sound expert advice, and one who also can offer all required after-sales support, including long-term maintenance agreements.
