Very often, the first and last thing a customer sees when visiting a business is the main entrance door. You want to make sure yours leaves a good impression. Moreover, your storefront door and other exterior doors help to keep your business secure. Here’s a guide to choosing the right commercial storefront door that checks all the required boxes.
Factors To Consider
A storefront door is an integral part of a store’s facade and can help draw in customers. Of course, if we’re talking about a back or a side door that’s out of sight, appearance is a much lower priority. For example, if you own a restaurant and want to create a modern and upscale look, you can you use aluminum glass overhead doors for your main entrance or walls.
- Ease of use
Does your business get a lot of traffic? If so, you’ll want a door that’s easy to use. Consider accessibility as well and ensure that your door can accommodate people with reduced mobility. Lux offers a variety of products for both of these needs, and each product can be customized based on the business’s needs.
A break-in is the last thing you want. Choose a robust door with quality locks and other security features. And always have your door installed by an experienced technician.
Your door may need to adhere to specific fire regulations. And, certain businesses and applications may need a fire-rated door designed to prevent the spread of smoke and fire. Lux can provide recommendations to help you choose the right door for your business to ensure your business complies with these laws.
Cost is always a factor. But don’t just look at the price tag; consider whether the door’s benefits and whether it will meet your business’s needs.
Types Of Commercial Doors
Here are some of the different options available to you for your storefront door, back and side doors, as well as other exterior commercial doors:
- Steel commercial pedestrian doors
Steel pedestrian doors are highly robust and durable. This makes them ideal for back doors, loading areas, and other entrances that need to be as secure as possible. However, they tend to be more functional than aesthetic, so they aren’t always the best option for storefronts.
- Aluminum entry doors
Aluminum entry doors are lighter than steel doors but still provide good security. And, as they tend to offer more design options, they’re a popular choice for storefront doors as they are visually appealing.
- Glass entry doors
Glass doors make an indoor space brighter and appear larger, and they also allow passersby’s to see into your store. Glass swing doors are an aesthetically pleasing choice, and glass sliding doors allow for quick and easy hands-free access. Both types can be outfitted to provide optimal accessibility for people with reduced mobility. For improved security, glass doors can also be protected by a grille, shutter, or other barrier.
