Which Overhead Door is Right for Your Commercial Business?

On your check list of critical must haves for an overhead commercial door, reliability, durability, and security top the list. And yes, appearance is also important — especially if the door is a front facing feature of your business such as a restaurant or coffee shop. Naturally, affordability is also a prime consideration — we’re not all made of money after all.

Here are some of the most common overhead doors — and how they differ according to advantages and cost considerations.

Sectional Doors

Sectional doors are usually made from galvanized steel panels. You can opt for thermal insulation. There are a number of track options, hardware and glazing possibilities to choose from. You can also opt for a heavy duty door to protect against weather — very important considering the intense winter rain storms Roseville is known for.

Aluminum Glass Doors

These doors are ideal if your business is a restaurant, brew pub or coffee shop where appearance and light are primary considerations. These are attractive doors that let in a lot of light. You can raise or lower the doors depending on the weather and if you decide to have an open air atmosphere for your business that day.

Rolling Doors

Most rolling doors are made from interlocking flat or curved slats of galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum that coil around a drum to open and close. These doors are perfect for tight spaces.
