How Automatic Locking Doors Add Security to Storage Shelves
An Easy Way to Secure Your Storage
With businesses growing and information storage becoming more complex, security is a bigger concern than ever. You’re likely storing items and files you want to keep secure on your shelving, and expensive security systems may not be in your budget. Automatic locking doors are a simple solution that mount directly onto your new or pre-existing shelves to cost-effectively increase security. Additionally, the doors are available with multiple operation options depending on your needs.
Automatic locking doors can be installed with a remote or wireless keypad, or can even be used manually. While hinged doors require extra space in front of your shelves so they have room to swing out, the automatic doors roll up instead. This requires no use of your floor space. And with hinged doors, you would need to take extra time to move any boxes or obstructions in front of them. Rolling doors still allow you to access stored contents even with boxes stacked in front of it.
Its built-in sensor is one of the most useful and unique features of the doors. This automatically stops the motion of the door if it comes into contact with an obstruction. If a box or other item is left hanging partially off a shelf, the door stops immediately without crushing or damaging the item. Simply roll the door back up, remove the obstruction, and reset the door so it can roll down again. Watch the video above to see how it works.

Sliding mobile shelving allows you to reduce your storage footprint without sacrificing accessibility, and the rolling doors are a new option available to add an additional level of security. While this can be accomplished with regular hinged doors, there are multiple benefits of adding roll-up doors to your mobile shelving instead.
While it would require three or four hinged doors to secure the same amount of shelving, you only need one roll-up door since it can span up to 12′. And as their name implies, the doors roll up rather than swing out into the room. This means you don’t need to make extra space in front of the unit, and the doors will still open if items are set in front of them shelves, whereas hinged doors would be blocked from opening.

Security Doors for Shelving
Security is an important part of a large amount of industries. The HIPAA Compliant Act requires physical safeguards of personal health information and medical records, and individual files containing personal or otherwise sensitive information can be found in every other type of business. Locking roll-down security doors can be installed on almost any type of steel and wood shelving units, or even on counter and door openings.
Hinged security doors are designed so they have to swing out into the aisle, which only takes up more valuable space that could be used for something else. The roll-down security doors are unique in that they’re mounted to the top of your shelving and simply roll up and down without the need for extra space in front. This allows you to stack additional boxes or desks in front of the shelving without having to move anything to access stored contents like you would with hinged security doors.
