Options- Personnel/Vehicle Doors and Glazing


Personnel Doors

Personnel Doors designed and made by REIDsteel are easily fitted to our buildings.

REIDsteel personnel doors are made from PVC coated galvanised steel, double skinned with insulated core.  They are available with locks and handles or panic bars. You must have a fire door every 30 metres incase of emergency. Personnel doors can be built into sheeted walls, brickwork and hangar or rolling doors.


Vehicle Doors

Rolling doors can be almost any height and almost any width. They are inexpensive and easy to maintain. Optional extras include brush seals and inbuilt personnel doors.

Roller Shutter doors on an industrial steel building made and constructed by REIDsteel

Roller shutter doors can be electrically or manually operated. They are made by us so that they will fit into a purpose made frame in our buildings. This is especially useful for export. Generally roller shutter doors should not be used on insulated buildings unless they are very small in proportion to the total area.

Sliding folding doors are a possible alternative to hangar/fabric doors on smaller hangars.
