If you are new to commercial door glass, and commercial glazing in general you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed or even confused by all the options available. Once you understand the different types of commercial doors and their applications you’ll have a solid understanding to help you make an informed decision. 

Hollow Metal Doors

Out of all the options for commercial doors, hollow metal doors are the most secure and most durable option available, which is why they are primarily used on the exterior of buildings. When appearance is not a major consideration, hollow metal doors make the most sense, especially for business owners due to their safety and security features. In addition to safety and security, hollow metal doors have lasting finishes, energy efficiency, and long-term wear. 

Wood Doors

Wood doors are ideal if you want to have a more rustic entrance, yet still a durable door. Wooden doors keep a place feeling natural while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Just because you are opting for aesthetics, doesn’t mean that you are sacrificing safety, as wood is a strong material and will assure safety for those on the other side of the door. Wood doors are optimal for restaurants, studios, and executive offices in part for the insulation that they provide; where you are able to avoid external noise and keep the area calm. 

Aluminum Doors

Aluminum doors are a great option for those who are looking for a more modern and sleeker look for your business. If you want to take your aluminum doors up a notch, they look even better when they are complemented with safety glass and are overall simple to take care of. Aluminum doors are a great option for business owners, as they are durable and strong. There are many advantages of aluminum doors, including the fact that aluminum doors can last for decades under different conditions. The one downside to aluminum doors is that they can eventually get stains after decades of use, but that is perfectly normal. Aluminum doors are ideal for schools, cooperative buildings, convention centers, financial institutions, government offices, and shopping malls.  

Full Glass Doors

If you are wanting to upgrade the space and appearance of a commercial space, you should consider full glass doors. Because of their transparency, they are a great option for malls, or as a way to distribute the light and division of interior spaces. All glass doors are available in sliding glass styles, or hinged styles, along with other shapes and designs. Because all glass doors don’t corrode, they can last for many years.   

As you can see there are many different options available when it comes to commercial door glass options.
