If you are looking for new doors this buying checklist will be helpful.
The right door for the job
When most people go out looking for doors looks is the first thing they think about. Naturally, this is important, but it definitely should not be your only consideration.
Of course, you need to buy doors that look good, but far more important is buying the right door for the job. There are several other important considerations, especially if you are buying your doors for use in a commercial environment.
Compliance with regulations
When you are buying doors, especially for the workplace or rental properties, there are several rules and regulations that you need to comply with. For example, in a food preparation environment or health care setting all surfaces, including doors, have to be easy to clean. In those settings, Beplas hygienic doors are a practical option. If you are installing doors in a workplace, public building or multi occupancy accommodation you also have to take into account fire door regulations.
Doors need to be well made and durable. They undergo a lot of wear and tear.
Easy to maintain
Doors need to be easy to keep clean and maintain. They are expensive items, so you do not want to have to replace them on a regular basis.
In most environments, security is important. This means you need to choose doors that can be fitted with the security furnishings you need.
Ease of opening and closing
If you are installing doors in certain environments, you may want to install swing doors, which can be opened hands free. You also need to choose a door that opens the right way for the space you are installing it in either inwards or outwards.
Taking the above into consideration should help you to buy the right doors for your home or commercial property.
