Commercial garage doors can be as big as 24 ft. wide and 20 ft. high. These doors also vary in terms of style, appearance, and energy-efficiency. Fire-rated commercial garage doors can also be constructed. The various types of commercial garage doors available to you as well as what components are required are outlined in the proceeding sections.
Types of Commercial Garage Doors
Sectional Doors: With hinged sections, sectional garage doors manufactured in your choice of steel or aluminum provide reliable, uncompromising performance. 2” polystyrene insulation delivers superior R-values for increased energy-efficiency in most any application, including warehouse, mechanics and auto dealership applications. *
High Speed: Manufacturing, distribution, food/beverage, and pharmaceutical industries will appreciate the fast response rate of high speed rolling doors. These doors feature 4-second or less operation, advanced safety features, and low maintenance requirements. Custom models, sizes, and colors are available as well.
Rolling Service Doors: Ideal for situations where side room and headroom are at a premium, rolling service doors are available in a range of slat profiles, curtain materials, and colors to compliment most any aesthetic. Doors roll up into a “barrel” above the door. Rolling service doors can be custom configured for any application.
Additional System Components
All commercial garage doors require torsion springs that use stored tension to counterbalance the weight of the door as it opens and closes. Because of this tension, torsion springs should always be professionally installed, serviced or repaired. You can, however, apply lubricant (either white lithium grease or silicone-based) to the entire length of the torsion spring to help maintain the spring’s longevity.
Commercial garage doors require commercial operators. Available options include jackshaft operators, slide door operators, slow-speed and gearhead hoist operators, and trolley operators – all from brand name manufacturers. Consult a commercial garage door service professional for advice on which operator will work best with your commercial garage door.
