Steel Doors and Grates


Steel doors are among the strongest and most secure and are available in many different gauges and core types that determine their strength. Proper door selection is based on Resistance to Impact and Frequency of use.

For a more secure application, consider specifying a heavier gauge door than the commercial standard 18 gauge. Also, be aware that your local community authorities may have specific requirements for steel doors and grates in your business. Some areas may require steel doors of a certain strength. You will need to check with the local laws first before buying a steel door.

You should also check with your insurance broker. Your insurance carrier may have specific suggestions or requirements.

If you have the money, you may wish to consider installing man traps. These are simply two steel doors used together. Clients are allowed through the first door, which is then locked before they are allowed through the second door. The advantage of this is that it makes armed robberies very difficult because the robbers have to go through the man trap to get out.

Standard commercial steel doors are available in 18, 16, 14, and even 12 gauge for bullet resistant and detention type applications. Steel door cores come in a variety of materials and configurations as well, among them, honeycomb, steel truss, polystyrene, polyurethane, and steel-stiffened. 

Consider specifying truss core or vertically stiffened steel doors for more secure openings. These doors have internal steel “ribs” welded to both face sheets of the door. This makes the door stronger, stiffer, and more resistant to impact.

Here are some helpful links to research Commercial Steel Doors.
