Restaurant Doors Installation & Repair

Restaurant doors, or also known as kitchen swinging doors, separate the front of the house from the back of the house without impeding traffic flow. Designed for durability and ease of use, they create a solid but flexible barrier that keeps both sides of your business functioning smoothly, in order to deliver the best possible customer experience.


Restaurant doors are made to open on impact. Constructed from strong, lightweight materials, the right door can operate for years in even the roughest environments with only minimal maintenance. Choose from:

  • Wood. Moisture resistant wooden core covered with a layer of high-pressure laminate. Provides both noise reduction and temperature control.
  • Polymer. Polymer honeycomb core contains no organic materials. Impervious to moisture and designed to withstand solid impacts.
  • Aluminum. Anodized aluminum is sturdy, light, and cost-effective. Ideal for businesses with heavy foot and tray traffic.
  • Stainless Steel. 16 or 20-gauge stainless steel is strong, long-lasting, and corrosion resistant. Built to withstand heavy and repeated impact.

Reinforced spines provide additional strength. Gravity hinges allow restaurant doors to swing back to center automatically, no matter their gauge or thickness. Steel or aluminum plates protect high-impact areas at a lower cost.


Restaurant doors are available in a range of colors and finishes. Whether business owners are looking for something sleek, ornate, or functional, they can find one that matches the look and feel of their space. Doors are available in single panel or double panel to accommodate traffic flow.


Restaurant doors are fitted with windows, which give staff a clear view of the other side, enabling them to move between rooms without risk of accident, injury, or collision.


While restaurant doors are most common in the hospitality industry, they have a wide range of applications including:

  • Retail Shops
  • Outlets
  • Grocery Stores
  • Hospitals
  • Medical Laboratories
  • Warehouses
  • Shipping Facilities
