Securing a business is a harder task than many people think. Too often, people consider windows, but not the doors of their business. A simple lock and key for commercial doors will not get the job done. Simple locks leave your business susceptible to break-ins and theft. To prevent these mishaps from occurring, you need to focus on security for the entryways of your business.
Secure Your Doors to Secure Your Business
Entryways and Windows
The exterior of your business, which includes entryways and windows, is just as important as the interior. There are many safety devices you can place on your windows to ensure they are sealed, safe, and secure. Commercial openings are more complicated to secure. You can purchase enhanced locks for your business openings or replace them altogether.
Types of Commercial Openings
The most popular types of commercial entryways include aluminum, fire, and FRP. Each entryway brings a different characteristic to your business in the form of security.
Many business owners prefer FRP entryways because they require little to no maintenance and are made of high-quality fiberglass. FRP openings are strong and sturdy like aluminum-framed openings. These entryways differ from aluminum-framed openings because FRP openings are thicker and wider.
Aluminum entryways is another popular opening for a business. They are available in flush aluminum, heavy duty flush aluminum, and rail aluminum. These entryways have a similar construction to FRP entryways. Instead of using different types of metals for the framework, only aluminum is used for these entryways.
There is only one type of fire entryway, the flush-faced, fire-rated opening. Although these entryways are standard, these openings are sturdy, secure and dependable. Fire entryways are popular because they are available in various colors and textures, and they can withstand a lot of damage, including vandalism and severe weather.
