Let’s ponder some common security measures that come to mind when you think of public or government buildings. Maybe you think of stone-faced security guards or rows of gleaming, high-tech cameras. You might envision tall metal detectors at entrances or perhaps an image of a humming conveyer belt where personal items are scanned for safety.
One item that may not have immediately appeared in your mind is a security rolling door. Imagine a heavy-duty security rolling door that is constructed with at least 18-gauge slats to protect against common tool and body force attacks. Add a rigid, 6-inch, heavy-duty bottom bar to it and a RAL powder coat to complement the exterior , and you’ve got it! There’s another image to add to your “security measures” checklist for public or government buildings.
Let’s go a step further and picture an even beefier, more robust security rolling door. First, visualize a black, tall steel door that looks like a typical rolling door. Think of the slats, and then add the power of interlocking, which these slats do when the door is in the closed position during any attempt to pry them open. Think of someone with a crowbar repeatedly trying— and failing—to separate these slats for five, fifteen, or sixty minutes, depending on the door’s construction and rating.
Finally, to conclude our visualization exercise, imagine a pristine storefront, ready to face another day unblemished and not broken into because of the use of one of these heavy-duty security doors. No glass litters the floor and no inventory is disturbed.
Imagine an embassy able to continue regular operation after a suspected break-and-enter plot to steal government secrets. It’s business as usual, instead of business critical or destroyed.
