Types of Pedestrian Doors

Here’s an overview of the two types of pedestrian doors available for commercial use:

  • Hollow metal doors are one of the most common types of pedestrian doors used in commercial environments. They’re affordable, durable, and available in a range of sizes, materials, gages, designs, and core types to meet the needs of your facility. Many models can also be used as blast or fire doors and come equipped with emergency exit devices. If safety is your top priority, a hollow metal door may be the right choice for your facility.

  • Automatic doors are ideal for commercial facilities that require efficient two-way traffic flow. They can be paired with motion sensors, keypads, and other electrical components to streamline your operations. In addition, they come in a variety of options including sliding, swinging, telescoping, and revolving doors. They’re stylish and often feature large glass panels for a sleek and modern look. If you want to impress your customers, an automatic glass door is the way to go.

When choosing a pedestrian door for your facility, you must take into consideration the traffic flow, safety, and decorative finishes you require. If you need help choosing a door, the experts at Creative Door ServicesTM are happy to help.

Lock Grades

The Builders Home Manufacturers Association (BHMA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) are responsible for classifying commercial locks based on their quality and security. As such, each lock is given a grade from one to three. Here’s an overview of the ratings:

  • Grade one locks are the strongest and most durable locking systems on the market. Consequently, they’re certified for use on exterior doors and at high-traffic entry points. Grade one commercial locks are rated for use on public buildings, educational facilities, healthcare facilities, and other large-capacity buildings.

  • Grade two locks are a mid-range option that are rated for use on exterior access points for medium amounts of traffic. They can also be used on interior doors that require a high degree of security such as office spaces and storage rooms that contain valuables.

  • Grade three locks are suitable for light commercial applications, such as securing supply closets, employee break rooms, and other areas that only require a low level of security.

If you’re unsure about what grade of lock is best for the pedestrian doors in your commercial facility, the experts at Creative Door ServicesTM can help.

Door Closers

Door closers help control the closing force and speed of your pedestrian doors. A high-quality closer will ensure your door closes quietly and doesn’t cause any injuries. In addition, certain closers can hold the door open or automatically close it if a fire alarm or smoke detector goes off. You can choose from a variety of options including surface-mounted closers, in-floor closers, concealed closers, high-security closers, and electronic closers.

Door Protection

You can purchase additional accessories such as kick plates, stretcher plates, and armour plates to help protect your pedestrian doors from excessive wear and tear.
