Roll Up Doors
Roll up doors are doors that are often used in commercial or industrial applications although some versions can also be used in domestic garages. These doors, instead of opening to the side or up from the bottom to the top, are simply rolled vertically up and down when they need to be opened or shut. These doors kind of work in the same kind of way as roller blinds.
Most roll up doors will simply slot upwards into themselves when they close. The bar elements of the door will simply slot up until they reach their top end to keep them out of the way. When you want to close to door again you can simply pull it down. It will then unfold out of the top casing so you can close and lock the door as you wish. You can also roll these doors part way up or down if you wish.
Many roll up doors are used on the exterior of buildings, factories and commercial units. You often see this kind of door used for security as well. Many high street shops will have a roll up metal door that is designed to cover their entire frontage, for example. This will give additional security to the shop and will also help prevent the breaking of their glass and windows.
In some cases businesses can also use internal roll up doors. These doors don’t have to be made from metal -- many are simply made from special vinyl materials. These doors really do work like giant roller blinds. They can be used for a variety of purposes including for partitioning, for insulation and for keeping out draughts.
Roll up doors are ideal solutions for many businesses as they can be made to fit large doorways and openings at a lower cost than having a large door specially made. This is a useful solution for many businesses that need to have a large doorway (say, for example, they need to get vehicles or large machinery in and out of the door).
It is also possible to use roll up doors in a domestic environment as well. Many people are, for example, opting to replace their garage doors with a roll up model. In a lot of cases these doors will come with a remote control system so that you can have them open and close themselves by pushing a button rather than having to get out of your car and sort the door out for yourself.
