Why Use an Impact Traffic Door?

To increase productivity.

Double acting traffic doors allow you to speed the movement of your personnel or materials between two areas in your building by eliminating the stop, open, move through and manually close actions that a traditional single, one way swing door requires. Plus there are no door levers or knobs to turn. An impact traffic door opens easily in both directions, simply by pushing it open with your hand or impacted by a hand truck, pallet jack or even fork lift. After you pass through the opening, the swing door automatically returns to its closed position.

For visual separation, sound containment, safety and security.

You can use double acting traffic doors between the sales floor and store room, food prep to cold storage area, front office to the warehouse or customer seating area to the kitchen or in any opening where you need to hide the clutter or reduce the noise from your backroom operations. Having a double acting traffic door creates a physical and psychological barrier that will restrict access by customers, vendors or employees to your backroom areas. Security doors with steel window bars and locking systems are available for limited access areas.

Simple operation and environmental control will save you money everyday.

Doors that have electric, hydraulic or pneumatic operators that use electric energy to drive pumps and motors are more complex to install, require regular maintenance and can be costly to repair. Manually operated impact doors are less expensive than motorized alternatives, faster and easier to install, require less time and money to maintain or repair. A double acting traffic door with full perimeter door to jamb gasket seal and insulated panel will help control air, moisture, dust and dirt particulate movement through the opening. Automatic closing minimizes the time the door is open then seals and insulates to help maintain the temperature differential between two spaces. Controlling room to room temperature and humidity can increase HVAC system, cooler, freezer or refrigerated case efficiency which will save you energy dollars everyday.

Double acting impact traffic doors are your simple, cost-effective solution for efficient movement through any opening while maintaining a visual, sound and environmental barrier that provides energy savings everyday.
