Commercial Grade Sectional Garage Doors
If you need a high level of insulation, easy and silent of operation, and an aesthetic appearance, then commercial grade sectional doors are your best option. Sectional garage door operation is superior due to ball bearing rollers and the use of 30 pounds of force or less to initiate door movement.
When appearance is a major concern for your business, sectional garage doors have the most extensive selection of exterior appearances with various baked on enamels, custom finishes, and window and insulation types.
R-values can be as high as 17.2, enabling eligibility for energy related government tax credits. Although maintenance—as well as initial cost of purchasing a sectional garage door—are higher than that of a rolling or sheet garage door (due to it's greater number of moving components), sectional garage door parts are easier to replace.
Commercial-Grade Rolling Garage Doors
If durability and cost of maintenance are your main concerns, then rolling doors are your best choice. Although insulation level options aren't as comprehensive as with sectional garage doors, rolling garage doors offer the highest level of strength with their superior wind and damage resistant slat construction, and are ideal for spaces with limited room, being one of the most compact garage door styles available.
Commercial-grade rolling garage doors require virtually no maintenance, as their guides are made of heavy-gauge structural steel, and the spring is enclosed in a barrel and hood.
Commercial Sheet and Rolling Sheet Garage Doors
If your business doesn't require a garage door with thermal control or a lot of built-in impact resistance, sheet garage doors can be an economical option, being the cheapest of all commercial garage doors.
Commercial sheet and rolling sheet garage doors have the best paint warranties in the industry. For rolling type sheet garage doors, lubrication can be difficult, because the spring is located in the barrel. Sheet doors and their installations are typically more affordable than sectional garage doors. However, if the door is damaged, the entire door needs to be replaced, and if a rolling sheet door spring is damaged, the entire barrel would need replacing.
Service Fire Doors
Service fire doors are available insulated and non-insulated. However, the best service fire doors offer a combination of insulation, sound proofing, and the necessary degree of property damage protection. Dual purpose mineral wool insulation provides varied degrees of protection, depending on whether the wall on which they're mounted is masonry or non-masonry.
For a level of thermal protection from outdoor elements, mineral wool is compressed within each slat of a rolling service door.
Fire doors are also equipped with various forms of fire sensors, such as FireLite ™ and Fire Sentinel ™ vision lights. Look for features like Chain Reset Hoist and Fire Minuteman that eliminate having to release the tension spring on your fire door when it's in fire drop mode, and permit resetting of the door by one person.
