What are Garage Man Doors?

Garage man doors (also known as wicket doors or pass-through doors) are smaller-sized commercial doors that are attached near a garage door, the front, side or rear of a building, or as a part of a larger door.

They allow for easy entry and exit without the need to continuously open and close larger doors, which can be inefficient and increase wear and tear. Garage man doors provide practicality and they are secure solutions.


What Types of Garage Man Doors are Available?

An extensive selection of garage man door styles, sizes, and materials can fit the needs of your facility, operations, and budget:

  • Steel doors provide a high level of safety and security. They are also extremely durable and can withstand extended use.
  • Aluminum or fiberglass doors both require relatively low maintenance and are sturdy, as well as relatively light weight.
  • Wood doors are less common in commercial settings but are found when there are internal wicket door needs from one garage or warehouse section to another. They may be shaped with wood veneer or other lumber products.
  • Glass doors can be fully composed of safety glass and a frame. Glass is also combined in many steel, aluminum, and fiberglass options.

Gem Dock & Door can install or repair your garage man doors, including wicket doors that are included within commercial roll-up doors, overhead doors, and other garage doors that are built for high performance and fire safety.


Benefits of Garage Man Doors

The ability to enter and exit is more efficient with a garage man door available to your staff.  Benefits of having garage man doors includes:

  • Making it easier to access the interior and exterior of your facilities when you don’t need to open the garage door.
  • Reducing the amount of use on your garage door, as replacing mechanical or electrical components can be expensive.
  • Cutting down on energy use to open and close a garage door.
  • Removing the need to keep a garage door open for an extended period of time which can attract unwanted entry.
