Agricultural Building Sliding Doors

Sliding Doors for Agricultural Buildings, Workshop Units, Barns and Farm Equipment Stores.

Agricultural Building Sliding Doors can make a considerable improvement to the day to day use of a Farm's Equipment Storage and Manageable Workspace. Surprisingly, even today, many Farm Buidings, Barns and Agricultural Units, still use old fashioned hinged Barn Doors, which have typically been in place since the creation of the building or unit. These traditional style of doors, very often made from timber (rather than modern industrial materials such as High Grade Aluminium or Galvanized Steel) often result in operational and maintenance problems.

The practicle difficulty of these hinged doors is that they restrict access at the entrance of the buildings, where it is typically most required. On top of this, the limited security options of these older doors are mainly confined to a fairly basic lock or padlock (albeit a large one). As barns now usually house and store equipment worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, these old style, insecure Barn Doors present a serious security threat to many Farming Businesses.

Agricultural Building Sliding Doors - Ease Of Use

As with many typical farm days, when lorries and trucks come for collections or drop off's, they are normally on a tight schedule and therefore they want to be able to reverse as near to the entrance of the farm store as possible, collect or deposit their goods. The more efficiently this can be done the better. Time is money for both the farmer and the transporter.

Agricultural Building Sliding Doors - Security

The security of hinged factory doors are an additional business risk that many farm owners should consider.

The new, industrial strength, Agricultural Sliding Doors, made, designed and installed by Wessex Industrial Doors, are specifically tailored to your needs with ease of access and security at the core of the process. The materials used are selected for the particular purpose they are to be used for and their easy slide engineering means that entry to the building is trouble-free and protected.

An additional value of these Agricultural Building Sliding Doors is that they can be manufactured for very large, wide openings and are the Door of choice for many big Agricultural Barns. They are also used in many Aircraft Hangars and Warehouses.

These premises frequently require the movement of large machines, vehicles or craft in and out of the premises. Working with any other type of Industrial Door, instead of Agricultural Sliding Folding Doors quite often proves to be totally unworkable.  

Agricultural Building Sliding Doors Made From Galvanized Steel

Made from Galvanized Steel or where necessary, Aluminium, these large barn doors have the light weight and strength required to cover such large doorways and entrances securely but with the rigidity needed for such a large structural opening.

As you would expect, one type or style does not fit all and it is essential to chose the correct agricultural door for the requirements of your farm and the facilities and equipment used within it. 

Agricultural Building Sliding Doors - Maintenance

Upkeep of these large sliding doors can be kept to the minimum level if, on a daily basis, the owner/ operator checks to ensure that:

  • Tracks are free of grime and dust build up;
  • All periodic cleansers and lubricants are applied; and
  • Regular scheduled maintenance is performed by a qualified engineer.
