If you’re a business owner with a medium to a large-sized facility, chances are you’ve moved freight or heavy equipment in your day. You likely have a warehouse where you store these items. You also need places to keep the equipment to move it from place to place. As a new or existing business, there are a variety of commercial garage door options you can choose. In this article, we will go over some of the basic commercial garage doors you might need.

Rolling Service Doors

Rolling doors, also known as overhead rolling doors, are essential in spaces where the side and overhead spaces are at a premium. These often fit openings up to 1500 sq feet, but some can be larger, and many can be smaller. Slat profiles, colors, and materials come in a variety of styles, through a chrome aluminum finish is the most common. There are a wide variety of rolling service doors, in which the door “rolls up” into a drum stored over the entryway. These are a common, economical choice for a variety of entrances.

Sectional Steel Doors

Manufacturers insulate sectional steel doors, and like rolling service doors, they come in a variety of colors and styles. These are very similar to residential garage doors but offer additional durability and longevity to any entranceway — ideal for commercial and industrial applications where both security and conservation of either heat or cool are essential. Many of them have a construction consisting of three layers, providing even more efficient insulation against heat or cold.

Aluminum Glass Doors

On the other end of energy efficiency are doors that are made up of framed glass sections, allowing visual access and interior lighting even when the doors are closed. These can serve as temporary barriers or allow large interior structures to serve as open-air installations depending on the facility’s day-to-day needs. By installing an aluminum glass door, your facilities are given a welcoming and modern appearance and can save you money on lighting in the lightest hours of the brightest months.

Security Grilles

Often installed outside or inside larger structures to prevent access during off-hours, side-folding and top rolling security grilles provide secure protection. You primarily see them in retail, industrial, and commercial settings. Made of interlocking steel and aluminum parts, these grilles prevent access to unused areas. They have a number of locking mechanisms to choose from. Many also come with an optional electric motor, increasing their efficiency and utility.

Insulated Fabric Doors

Manufacturers design these specialized interior doors for cold environment applications. For example, large industrial freezers, server farms, and other places where preventing heat transfer is of the utmost importance. Many of them have multiple seals along the edges and undersides of the door as well as rapid, high-speed motors. These ensure that the door is never open longer than it needs to be, keeping goods at the proper temperatures.
