Commercial and Industrial environments are often considered high risk because of how frequently they experience injuries and damage in the workplace. But these environments don't have to be dangerous! There are a variety of enhancements and precautionary steps to incorporate with your commercial doors to make the workplace safer for all involved.
Before we dive into which products can maximize the safety in your workplace, did you know.. A safe working environment begins with choosing the right door, proper installation, and regular maintenance?
People often don't know which overhead door is the best fit for their specific operation. Most people are choosing between roll-up sheet doors and sectional doors
Next, it's important that you have a certified installer to install, repair, and maintain your commercial doors. By following the specific instructions Janus provides during installation, you'll receive the best result out of your commercial steel doors. For more details on proper installation, check out our specific Installation Guides here!
Common Errors During Installation:
While steel doors have the advantage of little and easy maintenance, it's still vitally important to your daily operations that you complete the suggested maintenance and inspections on a regular basis. This helps you stay ahead of any problems that may arise with your door, ensuring decreased downtime and efficient productivity!

Now, for added security elements, there are a number of things you can incorporate into your daily operations, such as vision panels, photo sensors, reversing mechanisms, and sensing edges (just to name a few!). Let's go into more details below!
Vision Panels: Windows for your commercial steel doors that are constructed of translucent polycarbonate.
Reversing Mechanism: A system for motor-driven doors that forces the door to quickly reverse under specified conditions.
Photo Sensors: Equipment used for motor-driven doors to discover the distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transmitter and photo-electric receiver. When object is sensed, it initiates the door's reversing mechanism.
Sensing Edges: Attached to the leading edge of a motor-driven door, electrically activates the reversing mechanism when the sensing edge is compressed.
Even after taking precautions to avoid damage to your commercial doors, they're still at threat from unpredictable accidents such as damage from a forklift operation gone wrong. With that being said, not only is stocking your door to resist damage beneficial to both your wallet and operations, but having a door that can be quickly repaired is a HUGE advantage - and steel roll-up doors do just that!
