Steel Building Walk Doors
Imagine if, every time you wanted to enter or exit your house, you had to do so through a heavy duty rolling garage door-type system. Wouldn’t that feel ridiculous? While many steel buildings require those rolling doors, overhead doors, track doors, or other entryways to allow in vehicles and other massive machinery, you don’t want them to be your only option for an entry door. And in some cases, your metal building might not need them at all.
That’s where walk doors come in. A steel building walk door is exactly what it sounds like – a framed opening door that’s designed for a person to walk through rather than a vehicle to drive through or pass through in any other manner. A walk door system usually consists of a steel door and a door frame that includes a jamb and a header. Worldwide Steel Buildings offers a variety of walk door options, all with easy installation and affordable pricing.
Considerations for Steel Building Walk Doors
Worldwide Steel’s steel walk doors are ‘field located,’ which means you can plan and install them anywhere on the building, so long as they’re not obstructed by a column or bracing cables, and they can be added to any project.
Although walk doors are not traditionally included in the design of your steel building, they’re just one of many door options that’s easy to add. Our team can help ensure a proper location for your walk door to ensure it won’t impede columns, bracing or interior space, and walk you through your options
When choosing a location for your walk door, it’s important to make sure that it won’t be in the same location as columns or other support structures. Additionally, it’s good to keep in mind the location of your walk door in conjunction to interior spaces, loading areas, larger sliding, rollup, or folding doors, or anything else that could cause congestion or safety issues.
All pre-finished steel walk doors available through Worldwide Steel Buildings are made of the highest quality steel and include the necessary materials for installation. Depending on your door design, those materials may include the steel door itself, the door frame and jamb, a header, various locking and security functionality including deadbolts and fasteners, and other accessories like weatherstripping, kick plates, fiberglass windows, louvers and more.
