  2. Charles Kemp says:

    The roll doors are so important in a workplace. I have seen them as bay doors and also doors to let the forklifts in and out of the rooms. Both times they were very useful and kept things out of those parts of the facility. One of my jobs had the roller doors so that you could keep the cold in the fridge area to keep all the milk and dairy products cold.
