Sally Port for Correctional Facilities
Since 1987, EPD has provided sally port doors to over 200 correctional facilities in all 50 states.
A wide variety of EPD security doors are available for correctional facilities. Doors and gates can have custom designed panels allowing them to match the design of any building:
- Flat or pre-formed steel sheeting
- Bars or round rods
- Security mesh
- Bullet resistant panels
- Vision lights
EPD doors for correctional facilities can include a variety of automated controls and locking systems. Working closely with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, EPD has developed and manufactured automatic attack-resistant locking mechanisms designed for security and riot control requirements.
Sally Port Doors
Sally Port doors on correctional facilities are known for repeated opening and closing cycles – as many as 200 to 300 times a day. That’s why EPD’s four fold and bi-fold doors are so popular. You can depend on their operation for over two million cycles with minimal preventive maintenance.
EPD doors last 20 to 30 times longer than conventional doors. There’s always a possibility of vehicle and door damage on high usage doors. EPD’s four fold and bi-fold doors reduce the likelihood of these problems by rapidly moving the door panels in a sideways direction, keeping the door panels in the sight-line of the driver. The quick, two-feet-per-second opening and closing speed also reduces the chances of damage.
