The many options that you have for your commercial garage door installation can be overwhelming if you do not have the right information. What kind of door do I choose? What other factors should I be considering? These are common question you might have while you are looking for the right installer, and we are happy to offer a broad view of the answers to some of those questions so that you are better informed in your purchase.
Common Types of Commercial Garage Doors
When you imagine a garage door you probably think of the classic overhead door that slides up and away to reveal the rest of the space. Although this variety is common it is not the only kind available, and each has their own benefits. Make sure you know which type is best for you before you pursue your commercial garage door installation.
- Overhead Door: As mentioned above, this system is very common. The door is raised up on a rail or track, folding its long horizontal slats on hinges to get out of the way. You can operate this door with its automated mechanism or lifting them up by hand.
- Roll-Up Doors: If your space is laid out in such a way that a rail system does not have a convenient place to go you can opt for a roll-up door instead. These doors tend to be thinner and less durable, but they coil up into a roll when they are opened, saving space and trouble. The system is installed on the inner wall and guided upwards until it is securely coiled.
- Fire-Rated Doors: These doors are very similar to roll-up doors, but they offer much better protection. They are made from sturdy, insulated, noise-resistant and fire-resistant steel. Some systems come with an auto-closing feature if it detects a fire to contain it.
- Scissor Gates: This system uses a unique design to move horizontally instead of vertically much like a sliding door. They are also made with highly durable steel.
Advantages of Fast Mechanisms and Insulation
When you are looking into your commercial garage door installation remember to consider insulated options, as well as a fast opening mechanism. Besides the simply convenience of a quick door, especially if you have a high-traffic garage, the financial savings can be significant in the long run. Not only can focussing on a detail like that lower your heating and cooling bills in winter and summer respectively, but a fast door will keep out animals and other pests, saving you on exterminator and other cleanup costs.
