Specification considerations for plant room doors.
We can design a steel plant room door for virtually any type of use. Plant room doors are not always just secure doors to machinery and equipment. Server and computer rooms may require fire protection and an approved method of fire-exit. Plant room doors may also be personnel doors calling for strong locks and door closing devices.
External plant rooms may need protection from insects, birds or rodents. These outside doors can be provided with insect and bird mesh, a deep rebate and a durable paint finish for weather protection.
Plant room doors are available in stock sizes or made to order to suit the building apertures. All door sizes feature the same durable construction, pleasing aesthetics and high security.
Where ventilation is required, the louvre panels fitted to steel plant room doors should be designed, so they do not compromise security. Louvre plant room doors are available with full width and height louvres or smaller louvre panels within the steel door skin. The size and choice of louvre will largely be determined by the various ventilation requirements.
For plant rooms in remote and exposed locations, consider a punched steel door with higher grade steel and hardware designed to resist prolonged external exposure.

Security considerations for plant room doors.
The construction of a steel plant room door means it is stronger and more durable than the mechanical cleat construction of an aluminium residential door. An outward opening door is usually specified for plant rooms. Whether opening in or out, both types of doors offer excellent security.
Door hardware should comprise stainless steel hinges, heavy duty dog bolts and the right quantity to suit the door width and height. Door handles should be suitable for heavy duty use with quality fixings.
Plant room door security is enhanced with applied door rebates and anti-jemmy strips. Locking systems should feature multiple locking points, durable lever handles and high-security door cylinders where a key operation is needed.
