Owning a commercial property comes with a certain level of responsibility. You need to consider a number of things including accessibility, security and safety. Doors and windows are a considerable part of this.
Your business needs to comply with strict standards including disability access, fire resistance and exits points. At Windrush Doors & Windows we can help make sure that your commercial property doors and windows follow the legal requirements.
Fully replacing doors or windows isn’t always necessary. You may just need panels, panes or hinges repaired or replaced. This is something we can assess and identify for you. Our commercial door maintenance service can extend their service life and prevent emergency call out charges. But if you do, how do you choose the right doors and windows for your commercial property? Here are a few of the most important considerations:
Energy cost savings
There is no doubt that running a business and owning a commercial property is expensive. Which is why it’s important to keep overheads as low as possible, that includes your energy bills. Correctly fitted glazed windows and doors can prevent heat from escaping susceptible points of your property. You’d be surprised how much money can be wasted heating a property with poor windows and doors!
Space and accessibility
Disabled access has to be a consideration for your business. When choosing doors, you should consider the width and placement of them. Will a wheelchair be able to manoeuvre up to and fit through? Also, will some sort of automated opening need to be fitted?
If brand is important to your business then you can’t afford for your property looking poor. New windows and doors can really enhance your business’ overall appearance and make it much more welcoming and professional looking.
Commercial properties are vulnerable to vandalism and break ins. Doors and windows, being the easiest access points, need to be as secure as possible. It therefore makes sense to invest in great quality ones that will minimise the risk to your business.
