Aesthetics Meet Function: Roll-Up Doors for Your Self-Storage Units

Did you know that roll up doors can save space, be customized, and comply with ADA regulations?
Did you know that Boxwell makes each storage solution to order? In today’s world, having a customizable option feels good! We build each of our portable and relocatable self-storage units according to our customers’ needs. One key option to choose from is which type of door is right for you: roll up or swing? The doors are the most used part of each unit, so be sure to choose a door that works best for your business and clientele.

Here are some of the benefits and features when choosing roll up doors for your self-storage facility.


When you’re adding relocatable self-storage units to your facility, it’s easy to do a color match on roll up doors for a seamless look. Choose from 30-plus paint colors to comple­ment your existing color scheme and logo. As a result, your facility will have a cohesive look and feel. Plus, with a few modifications, roll up doors are a great option for self-storage facilities adhering to ADA compliance regulations.

Space Saving

Roll up doors roll up into the units in­stead of swinging out into the drive or walkway. This allows for more space for large trucks and cars to maneuver in drive-up self-storage facil­ities, for instance. Within cities and small lots, ev­ery inch matters. Roll up doors can help save space inside your storage units and are less obtrusive when open. This option is therefore helpful when storing large bulky items.

Virtually Maintenance Free

Roll up doors are easy to maintain, because many of the parts are pre-assembled and enclosed inside of the door’s barrel assembly. The roll up doors also come with lubricated springs and ball bearings for smooth operation—every time. Ensure that your containers’ doors open, close, and latch properly. If your roll up doors are not operating smoothly, you can apply lubricant. And be sure to inspect all latches and locks.

Wireless Locking and Entry Functions

With innovative, “smart” locks and hands-free entry systems available, your facility will be secure and easy to protect. They are compatible with Boxwell’s relocatable units, so it’s a no-brainer. These innovative locks activate with a mobile device, such as a smart­phone or tablet. They can improve the security of individual self-storage units and make life easier for site managers.
New, touch-free entry systems use Bluetooth technology. As a result, your customers will have access to the self-storage fa­cility and their unit from their smart device. This translates to no more lost keys, forgotten gate codes, or touching germs. Tenants can use the digital key sharing app on their phone, so they can grant temporary unit access to a friend, family member, or anyone who needs to grab an item from the storage unit. Here is innovation that’s automatic, hands-free, and COVID conscious.

Work with a Boxwell representative to decide on an ideal, moveable storage unit mix, custom colors, door configurations and more. Once you place an order, we deliver and install your Boxwell relocatable self-storage units. You’ll be ready to rent them in no time.
