Hardware for Commercial Doors
Doors do a lot more than just open and close. Some are designed to function as one-way exits, some snap closed to keep cold air in, and some should be easy to access with a slight nudge, even if you have your hands full.
The behavior of your door is determined by its hardware. So if your door doesn’t operate like it should, your hardware is most likely the culprit.
That’s where we come in. At CLAD, we repair all kinds of commercial door hardware and install equipment from only the best manufacturers in the market. Here are just a few of our solutions:
Make my door shut tighter
Adding a door operator can make a big difference. These simple devices let you change the swing speed, tension, and resting position of your door. They’re especially useful for bathroom doors that should close quickly and exterior doors that should close tightly.
Old hinges can also make your door more difficult to fully close. Replacing them with newer barrel or continunuous hinges can make a bigger diffence than you might expect.
Make my door easier to open
You have a few options here. Adding a door operator can make it swing more easily, but if the handle itself is the problem, then that opens up the possibilities.
For outward-swinging doors, adding a push bar or panic bar is a great place to start, since it lets people open the door hands free. For commercial kitchens or bathrooms, elbow, wrist, and foot pulls can give your occupants more options. Adding a kick plate is a good idea, too.
Make my door harder to break into
For hollow metal and solid metal doors, keyless door locks with matching ACS systems are a great choice. Adding electrified door hardware, and removing a regular keyhole, means employees and customers will be able to use your door using biometrics, key cards, or even phone apps.
Adding a single point alarm system is also a good choice. If the door sets off an alarm as soon as they attempt to open it from the wrong side, they probably won’t try again!
