Kitchen Doors

If you have a restaurant or business that requires traffic doors, it is important that you understand what kitchen doors are and how they’re used.   Kitchen doors from Discount Commercial Doors are tailored to suit many different applications and markets.

What is a Kitchen Door?

A kitchen door (also known as a traffic door) is a double acting door that provides a barrier between two areas. This “barrier” can be visual, thermal, or both. “Double Acting” means that the door swings in either direction. Traffic doors are designed to be opened by impact. The type of traffic, the impact and the function that the door is to serve will help you to determine the product to be used. Traffic doors are an excellent choice for applications where a high volume of traffic exists and minimal infiltration is desired.

Other Names for Kitchen Doors

While doing your research, you will come across different names that are used for kitchen doors such as:  Impact Doors, Double Acting Doors, Bump Doors, Swinging Doors, Sheet Doors, Double Swinging Doors, Kitchen Doors.  These are all the same and names are interchangeable.

One type of kitchen door is called a flexible door.  A Flexible Door is a traffic door that utilizes a single hinge at the top of the door. The advantage that the flexible door offers is it’s ability to handle abuse from traffic passing through the opening. There is no lower hinge on the door, and the panels will “flex” if wrapped around the corner, or if traffic passes partially through the opening and reverses direction.

The following is a list of kitchen doors you can procure from Discount Commercial Doors:
