Warm & Cool Storage Units, a manufacturer of weatherized door curtains for self-storage roll-up doors, has formed a strategic relationship with Self Storage Equipment Financing, an Atlanta-based company that finances self-storage facility renovations and improvements. The partnership will allow self-storage owners to install large quantities of door curtains at their facilities with a low down payment and affordable monthly payments. This will prevent the need for owners to make a large initial outlay of funds.
A typical drive-up self-storage unit experiences some air flow through the roll-up door and front wall. The Warm & Cool Storage Units weatherized door curtain allows self-storage operators and their tenants to retain heating or cooling within a unit and eliminate unwanted air flow. Even units with no internal heating or cooling can maintain a "cooler in summer and warmer in winter" atmosphere, according to a company press release.
“Our new weatherized door-curtain product is gaining traction within the storage industry, so now having financing options to install door curtains, in addition to the existing federal and state financial incentives, is a huge benefit for self-storage," said company president James Ciaciuch. By incorporating door curtains, self-storage operators with outside-facing units can create more heated and cooled spaces, he said.
Warm & Cool Storage Units is the only manufacturer of the patent-pending weatherized door-curtain technology for roll-up doors in the self-storage industry. Headquartered in Port Angeles, Wash., the company serves the U.S. and Canadian markets.
