At first, it may seem difficult to choose the optimum industrial or commercial garage door. A good choice is one that really corresponds to the way the door will be used. Paying too much for a door may not be beneficial; paying too little may result in annoying and expensive repairs. Components that are not robust enough can become the source of high repair and maintenance costs.
Overhead Door builds quality, tough commercial doors to withstand the daily wear and tear of owning and operating a business.
Step 1: Select a sectional door that will be suitable for your actual application.
According to the application, as example fire / ambulance stations, warehouses, car / truck washes, manufacturing facilities, condo / apartment building, etc., use the appropriate door. Overhead Door boasts a complete selection of performance- and safety-tested commercial and industrial overhead doors, including rolling-steel garage doors. We manufacture a wide array of styles to meet your business needs, from insulated and non-insulated doors for internal and external applications to high-performance, sectional-steel and fire-rated doors.
Step 2: Choose the door system according to the degree of sturdiness you need.
This depends mainly on the dimensions of the door, the material it’s made of and the number of daily open/close cycles it will undergo. The torsion spring acts as a counterweight to facilitate the opening of the door. A key factor in the durability of a door is its hardware. Choosing a spring depends mainly on the daily number of open/close cycles your door will undergo. Choice: between 10,000 cycles to 100,000 cycles. The higher, the better.
Step 3: Select your door opener and the other accessories you will need.
The choice of the door opener depends on the weight of the door and the number of open/close cycles that it will undergo. There are two types of door openers: trolley type and jackshaft. There is also a lot of possibility in regards to accessories: remote control, loop detector, adjustable timer to close, etc. Must have: pneumatic and / or photocell reverse system.
Step 4: Choose the type of windows you require.
Choose a sealed thermo glasses unit (instead of single pane). There are many choices of sealed windows: clear, reinforced, tempered, laminated, tinted. There are also polycarbonate or acrylic lites. Remember: if the insulation of the door is important for you, reduce the number of unit windows. Just one, the smaller, to see if there is someone outside of the building. Therefore, if natural light is important, choose windows fixed on aluminum full view sections.
The price differential between two choices can be minimal and far less than the cost of repeated maintenance calls. Make sure you’re buying the garage door system that will stand up to your requirements.
