Counter Doors and Counter Shutters

Counter doors are made from interlocking slats of formed steel, aluminum or stainless steel that will roll up to store in coil above a wall opening. They provide security against entry and weather protection at both interior and exterior wall service openings commonly utilized in cafeterias, concession stands and ticket booths. 

These doors are manufactured with smaller, more aesthetically pleasing components and built to exact opening specifications using compact guides, slats, brackets and hoods, they offer a more streamlined look than traditional rolling doors. When a full door with compact door components is desired, full-height units are available.

When a service opening is present, rolling counter doors are a great choice for use in cafeterias, stadiums, arenas, hospitality and educational facilities, public spaces, healthcare offices, and many other locations. Roll up counter shutters offer a custom appearance (with no exposed edges) and fast installation, slip-in units arrive ready to be set into existing walls. Units may be used in masonry or drywall openings from 4" to 13" thick.

When space is at a minimum, we offer an alternate design, with concealed tubular motors that provide a solution for strict dimensional limitations around the header or aesthetic requirements that lend themselves to its smaller, compact design.

All counter doors and counter shutter and custom built to your specifications. They can be designed to easily slip into existing openings as a complete package. Even with their more compact components, our rolling counter doors still offer heavy duty design that is engineered to take daily use for a low maintenance, long life solution.  

Roll up counter shutters have multiple finishes and material options available so not only do you get a low lifetime cost of ownership, but one that will add appeal and is aesthetically pleasing in any environment.
