Ventilated Parking Doors

In today’s world, fresh air and good ventilation are top safety considerations for any business. These concerns extend to garages, where safe and effective parking are a requirement for essential services, such as hospitals and clinics.

Modern high-performance doors offer several design options that help keep residents and guests safe while providing proper ventilation between the parking structure and the outside world. Features such as optional vision slats provide visibility through the door, while ventilated slats can be incorporated into doors for healthy air exchange.

Form with Function: The Benefits of Ventilated High-Performance Doors

High-performance doors, such as the Rytec Spiral® VT perforated door, are ideal for ventilated parking and security applications.

Fresh air: Ventilated garage doors maximize the inflow of fresh air while helping to reduce air pollutants, odors and the potential for mold growth.

Fewer contaminants: Ventilated doors help ensure airflow and circulation without large debris entry. The screened or perforated door panel construction keeps pests, insects and other unwanted contaminants from entering the building.

Safe and secure: The rigid construction of ventilated roll-up doors maintains a highly secure environment, allowing airflow to and from parking structures without compromising building security.

Rugged construction: Many high-performance doors include features such as double-walled aluminum slats, an integral rubber weather seal and a continuous heavy-duty hinge system to secure structures from unwanted outsiders. Other features help reduce wear and increase door longevity, with minimal preventive maintenance.

Performance and comfort: Opening speeds can reach up to 100 inches per second, yet doors remain quiet because no metal-to-metal contact occurs during operation. Residents above a parking garage, for example, will not be bothered by the operation of a Rytec door.

Privacy: Ventilated slats provide visibility while maintaining occupant privacy.
