What Makes a Great Commercial Door?
A commercial door is a machine that must perform flawlessly in sometimes relentless conditions that require opening and closing the door multiple times a day. High-quality doors are constructed to offer sustained and reliable operation for many years with only minor requirements for maintenance and upkeep. Whether they are aluminum or steel, the overhead doors we offer are designed to operate in the harshest conditions, like those used in busy loading dock environments that may operate 24 hours a day.
A good commercial door is one that you can have installed and then rely on for years without having to worry about unexpected breakdowns and operational problems. While every door will eventually meet the end of its life span and require replacement, the journey toward that day shouldn’t be full of downtime and service calls when something breaks. The most extraordinary commercial overhead doors earn their reputation with every flawless opening and closing cycle.
Standard Commercial Door Materials & Features
Commercial overhead doors have many applications, from heavy industrial sites to buildings like schools and retail stores. Doors are often made of steel or aluminum and may have a variety of features for various operations. For some business owners, an essential element of an overhead door is its ability to help maintain a specific temperature within the facility. Insulated doors can help with this goal, and there are also overhead doors for cold storage environments.
For other business owners, one of the critical features of an overhead door is its appearance because the door is in a place visited by or seen by the public. An overhead door may feature windows, allowing passersby to see into the facility when the business is closed. There are also overhead doors designed to appeal visually to onlookers and help the business owner create a welcoming environment for customers.
What Types of Businesses Use Commercial Overhead Doors?
We work with all sorts of businesses, from simple retailers to multistate corporations with complex overhead door needs. Overhead doors are most commonly seen on self-storage units and along the loading docks that support high-volume warehouses and distribution centers. Overhead doors are a help to food & beverage manufacturing facilities where there is a need for climate-controlled environments and high-speed overhead doors for loading dock areas.
You’ll see overhead doors that help pharmaceutical manufacturers maintain clean environments, as well as doors that must open and close ceaselessly during the manufacture of items like cars and other complex machinery. High-security facilities can benefit from overhead doors that can be remotely controlled, and overhead doors are also an essential part of the loading dock environment and entrances of heavy industrial facilities. Overhead doors are a must for any business owner who wants to control access to a facility and keep things moving.
How Do I Know When to Replace My Overhead Door?
Replacing an overhead door requires some research into the best new technologies and materials in use, but it also requires knowing when the replacement should take place. Sometimes, the answer is obvious. The cost of repairing or maintaining an old door reaches a point where continued service calls don’t make sense. If you have a door that has been working endlessly for many years, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new door.
New overhead doors are also something to consider when you’re redesigning or renovating your loading dock area. Overhead doors installed for loading dock use often feature beneficial features like high-speed operation and added layers of security or insulation. We can help you figure out whether it’s time to replace your current overhead doors or whether your doors might be able to operate longer with additional care and maintenance. We know everything about overhead door technology, replacement, and upgrades.
Are Overhead Doors Important for My Business?
An overhead door for your business might seem like just another piece of the puzzle when it comes to a smoothly operating facility. Still, their continuous and reliable operation can prove to be extremely important when you have a bustling environment. Imagine having an old overhead door that creaks and makes noise every time you try to use it. An old door or one that isn’t working well anymore can create bottlenecks in your operation, particularly if your building has a loading dock zone.
An overhead door may also represent a vital part of your business’s security when used to protect a building overnight. In areas where vandalism may occur, an overhead door covering the windows and the establishment’s front door can protect the contents or products of your business and the structure of the building. An overhead door can protect against theft, broken glass, and other events that can interrupt your routine business operations.
