The Best Operator for an Exterior Roll up Door

Sep 09, 2020

Rain or Shine, there's a secure solution for your roll-up door

It's an obvious problem that exterior doors are vulnerable to unauthorized and forcible entry. After all, it's often the first entry point burglars target on a building. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, forcible entry consumes a whopping 60.5% of all burglaries. Over 20% of those are to commercial buildings, making it pretty important for you to take action. So how do you arm your building and protect it against the threat of criminals?

Believe it or not, with advanced technology, automation is a great tool to enhance the security on exposed perimeter doors. Operators designed with tough, IP24 rated weather resistant housing, paired with a hood to cover the barrel/door/motor assembly, are perfect for vulnerable applications because they're constructed for harsh environments and can incorporate industry leading security features to enhance your application.


How do automatic operators increase security?

With automatic operators, you can eliminate a number of features that make your doors vulnerable; for example, side locks. Do you know how fast a burglar can remove a lock? They've mastered the practice of snapping it off with a pair of bolt cutters in just a few seconds, leaving your building completely exposed, vulnerable and unprotected.

So you add a weather resistant operator to your commercial/industrial door, what's to stop someone from reaching over the fence and disengaging the motor to manual mode? That's where secured access control comes in.

With keyed and electronic lockout features, you can stop unwanted persons from tampering with the operation of your automatic door. Control panels can also prevent unauthorized entry with a built-in lockout system.

These features work to enhance safety and prevent injury or damage in the event of an obstruction. But these aren't it's only impressive features!
