Over the past few weeks, we have experienced extreme weather conditions that switches from cold to hot and vice versa as well as unusually heavy rain. This means businesses should be prepared to tackle the changes in temperature so that their profits don’t take a nosedive. One aspect that will greatly help in keeping your business open is a robust and sturdy business door. It can withstand the ever-changing weather conditions very well.
At Doorway Services, we will help ensure that your business is up and running. Whether it’s the snow or the sun or a heavy downpour, our business doors will ensure that the weather is kept out of your workplace and your business functions are as smooth and secure as ever! Moreover, we undertake business door repair that will ensure safe access to your commercial building.
In this piece, we have discussed why you should choose business doors that can withstand extreme weather conditions.
The Constant Change in Temperature
Over summer, doors and frames experience thermal expansion which makes the material of the door swell. This makes it tough for the door to fit in the frame. Moreover, your commercial door can experience thermal bowing. This is when the sun exposure from one side of the door and the cool indoor air on the other, come together and cause the door to bow in the direction of the sun.
On the other hand, low temperatures can make the doors and their frames shrink making them vulnerable enough to crack over time and become more brittle. This is known as thermal contraction and wood is the primary example here.
The Effects of Weather
When choosing business doors, the weather definitely counts for a lot, but it is not the only consideration. The commercial doors you install have to withstand hail, snow, ice, rain and the sun. If it was just one element over a small period of time, it would barely affect your door. But imagine week after week of the same climate or, consistent but extreme changes in the weather. It will certainly have an impact on your commercial entrance doors.
Constant exposure to the sun can give a faded look to the door’s finish. Moreover, humidity (which is not dependent on season) can put a lot of stress on materials like wood and make it either expand or contract.
At Doorway Services, we offer commercial door repairs service to reverse the effects of harsh weather.
So, What are My Options with Business Doors?
A business door that’s robust and sturdy is made of fortified or coated steel that is capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions. This means that these commercial front doors are highly durable and will last for a long time. At Doorway Services, we install weather seals to our doors which adds an added layer of protection from the elements of the weather.
We will help you choose a door that has a robust finish and offers excellent weather resistance and durability. You should opt for a lighter shade as it will help fight thermal bowing, not to mention it won’t fade easily.
Best Commercial Shop Doors for Extreme Weather
Apart from providing top-notch security, Dane shutters also provide excellent protection against constant changes in the weather. The insulation on these shutters not only protects your commercial building from the outdoors but also reduce the heat and energy loss from within the property.
As the name suggests, steel doors are extremely sturdy, hence weather resistant and they are suitable for businesses across industries. Our steel doors are manufactured from galvanised stainless steel with a zinc coating adding to their overall resistance.
