Have you thought about fitting industrial roller doors?

If you are a business owner, protecting your business is going to be important to you. You will want to do everything that you can to make certain that you have minimised the risk of accidental damage or any unwanted individual gaining entry to your premises. The risk of illegal entry can be particularly acute for industrial premises that tend to be located away from well-lit and populated residential areas that deter criminals. If your business utilises an industrial unit, then there are several steps that you can take that will help to safeguard the premises.

Protecting your industrial unit

Fitting a working alarm system is important, but there is a stage before that which sometimes gets overlooked. Insisting on correctly fitting and locking doors and windows may seem obvious, but it is always worth checking since it is of critical importance. There is little point in fitting an expensive security door if you leave the windows open or they can't be locked when you close your business in the evening.

For many businesses, one of the biggest security headaches is caused by their dispatch area. Having a large opening through which pallets and forklifts can pass may be vital to the successful operation of your business, but it leaves a large hole in your building that you must cover somehow. Doors that swing open can certainly be secure if they are made of the right material, but they can often consume a lot of valuable space, either inside your unit or on the forecourt where you want to park your delivery vehicles.

Secure and space-saving

If you want to ensure the security of your unit while saving space, an effective solution is to fit industrial roller doors over your dispatch bay and any similar large openings. Industrial roller doors come with many advantages over traditional wooden or metal doors. Their ability to save space and the way they help protect your premises are certainly important, but the ease of use offered by industrial roller doors may be the most common reason for their use. With heavy-duty conventional doors, it can be common to require several people to open the doors because of the weight of the doors. Industrial roller doors manage to be secure without becoming unwieldy, and since the doors are wound upwards they can often be manoeuvred with either a motor or a handle, making the task of opening or closing them simple.
