When selecting the best types of doors to use for your facilities, it’s important to recognize the characteristics and benefits of each type on the market. Among some of the most popular door choices nowadays are hollow metal doors, and for good reason. They have earned an impeccable reputation due to their many advantageous features.
Benefits and Characteristics of Hollow Metal Doors
A door made of hollow metal is extremely durable. Not only does it resist most types of environmental stressors, but it also won’t warp. They require relatively no maintenance and will operate flawlessly for many years. Their laminated surfaces are unlikely to delaminate, and they are built with rugged strength.
Hollow metal doors offer optimal security. Not only do these types of doors meet the Hollow Metal Manufacturers Association (HMMA) standards, but they even exceed it. They are generally resistant to bullets, fire, and other explosives as well as tampering. If you’re looking for a door that is meant to keep people in or out for security purposes, hollow metal doors are the ideal option. This is part of the reason why they are commonly found in courthouses, prisons, and other high-security areas.
Versatility of Applications
Not only are hollow metal doors ideal for maximum security areas, but they can also be used in a variety of other places as well, including apartment buildings, hotels, office buildings, and virtually anywhere else you can think of that requires a durable door. Plus, their design has been enhanced to make it so they can complement a college campus’ aesthetic design just as well as they can a county community center. Hollow metal doors can even be manufactured to have the appearance of wood and other materials while still functioning better than the counterparts whose appearance they are mimicking.
