FOLDING SHUTTERS FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS

These designs are a practical choice for any access point, as they offer high levels of security and resilience to damage. In addition to the incredible security features that a metal folding door will provide, they remain an extremely practical solution in all working environments.

When unlocked, they are extremely easy to open by hand or remotely as required. In many cases, these doors can be connected to your security system. This will alert your security team when these sliding doors are opened out of hours. These solutions can be given hard-wearing locks which are designed to resist all unlawful access.

As part of their design, these shutters can also be coloured to match your brand identity. They can be made the same colour as your walls to facilitate their blending in with the décor in commercial layouts. They can also be colour co-ordinated in larger industrial facilities to help employees conduct their daily tasks.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFICAL OF FOLDING SHUTTERS FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTIES?

Folding/sliding shutters are extremely versatile access points which can be used in all kinds of industrial and commercial environments. In the past, our experienced team have delivered shutters to:

  • Retail Outlets.
  • Warehouses and Stockrooms.
  • Factories and Manufacturing Plants.
  • Hospitals.

These folding shutters are designed to offer a long-term, reliable service in all kinds of commercial and industrial spaces. They are versatile doorways which can be used in a range of situations, including industrial lifts and external entrances.

INDUSTRY-LEADING INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL SECURITY

Folding shutters are a great option for all kinds of internal and external access points. They are made from hard-wearing metal which can survive most impacts without sustaining any damage. They are resistant to the effects of the weather and can easily resist gusts of wind exceeding 150mph.

In addition to providing natural security due to their hard-wearing materials and quality construction, you can choose to equip your shutters with additional security options. These can include alarms, key switches and a range of health and safety devices.

A LOW CLEARANCE SPACE

Unlike other kinds of doors and shutters, folding designs only require an extremely small clearance space to operate. The metal folds onto itself, creating a much smaller blockage in the access point. This makes it ideal for doorways of all shapes and sizes.

VERSATILE FOLDING SHUTTERS

Thanks to the extremely simple design of these folding access points, they can be used in a wide range of areas. They are extremely popular in both commercial and industrial locations. They are commonly used to create accessible yet secure lift entrances for the transport of equipment and stock. When combined with a reliable industrial lift, you will be able to send stock from the storeroom or warehouse to the retail floor.

Here at Alliance Doors, we can provide shutter models which are up to 30,000mm wide and 8,000 high. This makes them the perfect choice for hangars and large industrial entrances.

ELECTRICAL-OPERATED FOLDING SHUTTERS

These sliding doors are normally operated electrically. They can either be opened or closed from a remote location or by a simple switch/key adjacent to the shutter. This makes them quick and easy to use daily.

FIRE SAFETY

Folding shutters, when installed internally, can be used to prevent fire or other hazards from spreading throughout your industrial space. The hard-wearing metal can be used to contain any fires which develop in your property. This is essential for any industrial or commercial space where there is the risk of a fire developing.
