All communal buildings, like communal residences, need to have safe, secure entrances for all residents. This include to any outbuildings such as garages or car parks as well as to the main building itself. It’s the responsibility of a property management company to make sure all doors are working correctly and are providing a safe home for residents.
Different types of doors that might be used include secure entrance doors, automatic doors, doors with an entry keypad, and roller shutter doors for outbuildings and garages. These are easy to maintain and are highly secure, giving residents peace of mind when entering and existing their building. Doors should have British Standard locks, as well as having safety glazing so that it can’t be easily broken. Manufacturers of entrance doors for commercial and communal properties will be able to give advice on the best options for particular properties, depending on requirements and opening sizes.
