grille-blogAccordion grilles are becoming more popular in commercial spaces today for a variety of reasons. They are especially good to install in spaces which have height limitations or no overhead access. In addition, they are used in wide open commercial spaces (such as shopping malls and open-air retail centers) as well as warehouse or storage spaces. Here are the three most common reasons why customers today are increasingly choosing to install accordion grilles.

Attractive Yet Also Secure

Accordion grilles provide a seamless storefront look for large commercial spaces even before or after business hours. These grilles may look attractive and delicate, but they are really quite strong and secure! Especially in areas where other types of security monitoring can be difficult to install or monitor, an accordion grille can pull double-duty by providing a pleasing yet impenetrable exterior.

Light and Easy to Operate

For commercial businesses in particular, some employees who are not as strong or tall may have a difficult time operating other types of door and window locking mechanisms. An accordion grille takes away these concerns as it functions as a floor-to-ceiling secure storefront that can be operated just by sliding it forward or back. Even employees with special considerations (such as no heavy lifting) can operate an accordion grille easily.  These can also be equipped with motor operator to make operation even easier!

Durable and Long-Lasting

Accordion grilles are known to be quite durable and long-lasting so long as minimum preventive and routine maintenance is performed at regular intervals. However, it is important that in order to keep it lasting a long time that personnel should be trained in proper grille operation. For instance, grilles must be opened and closed slowly and carefully using a light touch. This will prevent the hidden locking mechanism from jamming. As well, since accordion grilles do not require a floor track, it is important to keep the path clear of any potential debris that could get stuck in the grille.

Professional Assistance

As with any grille or door, especially those being used for commercial use, it is recommended that businesses get them maintained and inspected on a regular basis. Vortex Doors prides themselves in having fast, friendly service, with experienced technicians that have been trained at a proprietary state-of-the-art training center.

Accordion Grilles Add Style

What kind of business do you have? You have to make sure your customers and clients feel comfortable within your office or building. One way to instantly make people comfortable is by considering the doors that you have in your space. You may think of a door as just a basic form of entry, but to consumers, it is a way of welcoming them in. A big metal door is going to be cold and uninviting while a grill accordion door is going to invite people in and set people at ease. It is less industrial, yet provides the security the building needs.
