Doors don’t have to just be functional, they can absolutely enhance the look and feel of an establishment. This webinar will explore the common and not-so-common ways that architects and designers can incorporate rolling and sectional closures into their hospitality designs – thinking outside the standard entrance and exit of a building. We will discuss closure placements ranging from room dividers, printed advertising opportunities, bar security and ways to extend usable space to the outdoors. We will also talk about resolving common pitfalls, such as - eliminating overhead interference, maximizing airflow in a post-covid world and establishing security without interfering with aesthetics.
