Door alarms play a critical role in all types of commercial properties. These alarm systems – which can be both standalone and hard-wired into the property – have the potential to prevent theft, improve fire safety, and direct traffic. Most commercial properties benefit from at least one door alarm, and the more occupants the building has, the more you may need. If your facility has rooms with occupancy over 50, or multiple fire exits, door alarms are essential. In the case of a retail store, a door alarm is useful from preventing someone from walking out the back unnoticed (preventing store theft). The device will sound when the door is opened, unless the key or code is used to bypass the alarm. This type of safeguard is useful in all commercial facilities, ranging from health centers to government buildings.
Your door is more than a giant slab of wood. It involves several working parts that all play a role in who can enter and exit your property, how secure your business is, and how safe it is for both clients and customers. Many commercial properties use “door closers,” which are mechanisms that go at the top of the door to prevent the door from slamming shut or remaining open. These closers may also help those who struggle to open doors (for example, due to physical handicap), or be designed to prevent doors from opening too quickly or easily.
