Available in Standard, Poly-Kor, Poly-Kor XHD, and Ultra-Lite, impact doors can twist and bend with the pounding of the roughest traffic.
Most people don't think much about doors in their facility. But you have a lot of doors: entrance doors, loading dock doors, security doors and more. But have you given any thought to the impact doors that are in your facility? These traffic doors, sometimes called impact traffic doors, are a vital component to a smoothly running facility. Plus, they have several important functions.
Impact doors come in a variety of configurations depending on the needs of your warehouse. Perhaps you have a large cooler to store produce in and you need to drive a small forklift into and out of the cooler facility. Impact doors are a great way to ensure traffic is not impeded while maintaining the constant temperature needed in the cooling portion of your warehouse. Impact doors can also be labeled so that people going through them know which side of the doors to use. With full hands or arms, opening doors can be a challenge, but impact doors are easy to use and don't require any hands to manipulate handles or other items on the door. In some situations, like a retail setting, having light duty impact doors allows customers to access special sections of a building that needs to be segregated from the rest of the retail space, but still needs to provide access for customers. These light duty impact doors are simple to use and require no additional effort from people to close again.
Sometimes your impact doors will be in high traffic areas. These traffic impact doors see much higher use and are designed for such uses. A great example is traffic impact doors that separate a warehouse storeroom from a loading dock. These traffic impact doors get used hundreds of times per day with employees going into and out. In other applications, larger traffic impact doors are needed to deal with the traffic from multiple forklifts moving through an area to load and unload multiple trucks and trailers. In such high traffic areas, traffic impact doors are a necessity in order to keep a large freezer warehouse operating efficiently. The traffic impact doors that you use will have a dramatic impact on your loading dock function and safety.
