Types of Commercial Garage Doors

Example Commercial Doors

Sectional Doors

Sectional doors are one of the most common types of garage doors for commercial use. Sectional garage doors are divided into several panels that are attached together for increased flexibility and range of motion. They roll up and down on a track that sits on the ceiling of the garage, and they can be moved manually or by an automated system. They are ideal for larger doors because they provide more mobility. They are very durable and can be used in many different spaces. Because they have many small parts, they almost always require professional installation, and they should get a maintenance check regularly to make sure they are still in good condition. These doors also offer creative design options for your warehouse. Sectional doors can come with windows, which are a great way to let natural light into your space. However, keep in mind that with additional light comes additional heat, so if you're going to be working in the garage, you'll need to place your windows carefully to avoid hot spots.

Rollup Doors

Instead of sliding back and forth on a track, these doors will roll up into a coil when they are lifted. They are held in place with guides on the sides of the door and secured with fasteners at the top. They are generally much thinner and lighter than other types of garage doors because they need to be flexible enough to roll up and down. These types of doors are very popular in commercial warehouses with high ceilings that can't accommodate rails for a garage door. They are also very effective in tight spaces where there isn't room for rails.

Fire Rated Doors

These doors work in the same way that rollup doors do - they roll up and secure at the top of the door instead of sliding on a track. However, they are designed to withstand fire damage and other types of severe wear and tear. Fire rated doors are typically made with highly insulated stainless steel to protect your warehouse from many different types of weather conditions. They are very thick and are noise resistant, so they're great for keeping noise in and out. They're easy to customize and can be used in many different types of buildings.

Glass Doors

Glass garage doors are a very specific architectural choice that looks sophisticated and elegant. If your garage door is going to lead into a retail space, like a boutique or a brewery, you may want a glass door to make it look more inviting. They are also commonly used for fire station doors. Glass doors are usually made with an aluminum frame, which is secure but lightweight enough for easy movement.

Automated Doors

Regardless of what type of door you choose, chances are there's an automated option available that will make your door a little easier to use. Automated doors are connected to a remote control and can move up and down on their own. This saves you and your team the manual labor of lifting up your garage door every time you want to use it. Automated doors can sometimes require additional maintenance just to make sure the batteries and automated machinery are working properly.

How to Choose A Commercial Garage Door

Our expert team is happy to help you find the perfect garage door for your needs. With many different options to choose from, it's easy to customize your garage door to suit your needs. Here's what to keep in mind when choosing a garage door.

  • Available space
    Your garage door is going to take up some space in your warehouse, so you'll need to decide what makes the most sense in terms of placement. If you don't have any available overhead space, then a rollup door is the way to go. If you do have space available, then you can use a sectional door. Sectional doors are very space-efficient because of their flexible paneling, so they also work well if the actual width of your door frame is small.
  • Automation
    For most companies, the added automation feature is worth the extra cost. Automated garage doors are safer because you won't have to worry about trying to lift a heavy door on your own. The automated rollers give the garage door more control and ease, and you won't have to get out of your car to move the door up and down when you want to enter. However, automated garage doors do cost more money, so they may not be in your budget. If you don't use your garage door very often, you may be just fine with a manual door.
  • Durability
    Commercial garage doors need to be incredibly durable. They should be made of strong materials that are able to withstand both hot and cold temperatures, as well as precipitation. They should also be flexible enough that they can easily roll or slide up. Doors that aren't flexible are actually going to be more brittle and susceptible to damage. Additionally, you need to make sure your rollers and stabilization mechanism are secure enough to hold your door in place. You may need to lubricate your garage door wheels during the winter when the weather gets cold. This is where regular professional maintenance becomes very important.
  • Design
    If you have a certain look in mind for your commercial space, you'll want a garage door that can easily be customized to fit your needs. Maybe you want a certain color or you want windows in a specific place. You'll need to choose a garage door design that you can easily customize to suit your needs. We offer a great selection of garage door options and will work with you to help you find the best choice.
  • Security system
    If you're worried about the security of your commercial space, you can install a garage door that comes with security sensors or other security features. Security features prevent unwanted intruders and can help your employees feel more comfortable about working there at night. You can also opt to install security grilles with your garage door for extra security if your building is in a highly trafficked or urban area.
