The Steel Personnel Door - What Are the Applications?

In a lot of commercial buildings, particularly places like hospitals, there exists what is called a steel personnel door. This is a valuable part of any building design and serves a key purpose.

However, what is a steel personnel door? What does it do? What are the applications? There are three main ones – fire escapes, security and fire resistances. Let’s take a look at them.

Fire Escape Applications

In the event of a fire, it’s important to have easy access out of the property, creating a safe fire escape. Steel personnel door excels in creating a fire escape because it provides a strong, reliable door that can be easily opened in a crisis. These kinds of doors can often have access panels for emergencies or simple overrides.

Security Applications

Security needs to be a basic concern when running a successful business or designing a property. The steel personnel door is tough and rigid. It’s very unlikely that an intruder will be able to force it, or break in. From a security perspective, this is good because it helps to guarantee that the building is safe and has no weak area of access.

Fire Resistance

Fire resistance is an important part of fire safety, because there needs to be some way of stopping the fire for a brief period, containing it or even just slowing it down. The steel personnel door excels in all areas because it has the durability and fire resistance necessary to hold back the blaze for a little while. This brief period could make all the difference for emergency services, or simply getting everybody out of the building safely.

Final Thoughts

As we can tell, there are many applications for a steel personnel door. This type of door frequently appears in large commercial properties and is popular in hospitals. However, it can be effectively implemented everywhere due to being a reliable security measure and a safe way to exit the building simultaneously. When choosing a steel personnel door, it’s important to make sure that it is installed properly. We can help you with this. The good thing about a steel personnel door is that once you invest in it, it will stand the test of time. This makes it a great option for anybody looking for something sturdy.
