Rollok Door gives easy, full opening access for 12’ wide closet at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
Jul 24th, 2013 by Peter Harnack

Goto Indoff - Silicon Valley

The Rollok Door recently delivered to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Saratoga California is now providing easy access to choir robes for the Church’s Choir.

Rollok Door used to provide easy access to 12' opening choir robe closet

Easy Access, Rollok Door for Prince of Peace Lutheran Church Choir Room

The robe cabinet in the choir room had a 12 foot opening.  There were two pull out doors that stuck 3 feet into the choir room.  During warm ups and before and after services, these doors hampered the choir from getting the robes and returning them at the end of services.  And they block and limited access to the closet when the practice piano was in use. Since the choir had previously acquired a Russ Bassett Slim Case cabinet with a tambour door for music storage (space was tight), as they looked for solutions to the doors-getting-in-the-way problem, a roll up door seemed that it might work.

An aluminum, foam cored Rollok Door from “Rollok Doors” turned out to be the solution.  This 12 foot opening could be covered by one, 12 foot Rollok Door to give the choir the access they needed, getting rid of the obtrusive swing open doors, and provide security if needed.

While most applications of the Rollok Door are for security, in this case convenience was the key factor to use the Rollok Door.  Because the church had volunteers with good handyman capability, the Rollok Door was delivered direct and the volunteers did the install.  Prince of Peace’s pastor noted that the install when up very easily, commenting “Is it really this easy?”

Now the choir has the easy access they need and security if needed (for example, if there are visiting accompanists who need to secure instruments or equipment).   To see the inspiration, packaging, before and after video, click here.

Hive Personal Storage Lockers

Hive (Wood) Personal Storage Unit with changeable Graphics, Personal Storage Area, Mail Slot and Personal Laptop/File Storage Box Option

When researching their work and how it might apply to other organizations, I noted with interest a comment from a Cisco IT manager regarding needs of employees articulated during brainstorming sessions. One frequently mentioned need was for quiet areas to be used for short period of times during the day. Another mentioned personal lockers for belongings like purses and lunches and larger filing cabinets for employees whose job required them to store forms or records.

Today we are review new products that would be very helpful in meeting the personal locker storage needs of mobile/hotelling personnel.

The “Hive” Personal Storage Locker System

In an agile and dynamic workspace, one of the challenges to success can be the loss or lack of a defined personal space for employees. “Hive” seeks to solve this vital need in a unique way.

Made from wood, the “Hive” system was developed keeping in mind how people would work in the new agile office. They wanted to be able to locate these units in corridors rather than in locker rooms. Therefore they had to be made fun and flexible. You can interchange doors easily and change graphics quickly.

Each worker gets one level as their permanent office base. This unit is their address. This is where physical messages or messages are left. They get about 39 inches of personal storage space to put their hotbox (more on that later) and other important belongings.

When you combine the small, movable Hive (see April 15, 2013 blog) and the personal storage of Hotbox, clutter is removed from the work space. You no longer need a pedestal for each person. And each desk can now have many users.

Shared desks becomes more viable since one Hive replaces the need for up to 3 personal pedestals for each desk.
