Locking Tambour Door
Locking Tambour doors have been used for
decades in Europe and the U.S. as a means to save space.
When a locking tambour door is used in a cabinet or other type
of storage system, space is created by eliminating the
"swing out door" so common in today's cabinets. Browse
through these pages and see the opportunities that exist
when tambour becomes a part of your storage product.
Tambour doors have a textured finish in the
following colors: Light Gray, Dark Gray or
Ivory. Housings and guide rails are
available in our standard Jeter steel colors
of Beige, Gray and Oatmeal. Custom colors
Tambour doors offer a
unique and economical way to incorporate
space saving features into your storage
systems. While swing doors may be economical
in the initial manufacturing stage, they are
more expensive to the end user because of
the needed floor space to open and close.
Tambour door, installed for side by side or
vertical opening requires no such floor
space, thus freeing up needed floor space.
The images below show a narrow aisle that
has storage cabinets with tambour doors
installed. This space utilization could
never occur with units installed with swing
The Jeter and Datum Locking Tambour Door is a superior
product in both durability and performance.
It has been designed to be installed on new
or existing Jeter cabinets and shelving, as
well as most other brands.
