Wood Garage Doors for Townhouses at 150 Charles Street

Posted by Jai Patel on Sun, Feb 14, 2016 @ 08:29 AM

Our wood rollup garage doors are seen in the photo below of our 150 Charles Street, New York project.  The designer wanted a wood sectional overhead garage door door to match the adjacent ipe wood facade.  The team at Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands/NYC (Division of Loading Dock, Inc.), custom cladded ipe wood to polyurethane steel section panels.  Together, the entire system made a R-value over 18 for quality & high-end thermal protection.

 Wood garage doors in Brooklyn & Manhattan are used in luxury applications.  These wood rolldown maisonette gates are used as car entrances for individual townhouse owners.  

150_Charles_St_garage_front.jpg

Each townhouse owner has a custom wood garage roller door with a 3/4 HP opener.  In addition, the exterior doors have a black powder coated kick plate. 

Design Consultation

 The project also required overhead coiling security gate grilles for condo owner parking.   The security grilles are made of aluminum rods, links and spacer tubes.  The grille system has a custom powder coat color to match interior facades.

 Perhaps you would like design support for your project.  Our team is fully trained in custom wood garage doors.

Flat Iron School - Conference Room Garage Door

Posted by Jai Patel on Sat, Jan 23, 2016 @ 02:04 PM

The Flat Iron School is NYC's premiere computer programming school.  The top tech firms like Google, Twitter and Yelp recruit from this school every year.

Flat Iron School's design team called us needing a cool way to partition their wide open space. 

Flat_Iron_School_Fi_Di_Manhattan.jpg

They used our Modern Aluminum Series 521 Door by Overhead Door Corporation for the project.   If you notice the exit signs in both photos here, you will get a "before and after" view.

This door system was NOT easy to bring up.  Our mobilization team of 7 took almost all day to bring these very high panels up through different stairwells to eventually slide the panels through a window in the room.

Non-Insulated & Insulated Metal Slat Overhead Coiling Door Slat Profiles

Posted by Jai Patel on Sat, Jan 16, 2016 @ 03:26 PM

Non-insulated Metal Slat Overhead Rolling Doors

Constructed of galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum in a variety of slat profiles, finishes and options.
•Standard doors are designed to meet 20psf (90mph to 110mph) wind resistance.
•Higher windload and seismic validation available.
•Perimeters’ sealing are designed to reduce air leakage and keep climate controlled air in and the elements out.
•Extra heavy-duty slats fabricated of galvanized steel in up to 14 gauge with a curved profile
•Designed but not limited to oversized applications where herculean size and strength are required.

Insulated Metal Slat Overhead Rolling Doors

Insulated rolling service doors are used when durability, security, overall performance and thermal efficiency are required.
•Standard door is designed for 20psf (90mph to 110mph) wind resistance.
•Perimeters’ sealing are designed to reduce air leakage and keep climate controlled air in and the elements out.
•Roll-formed flat slats sandwich CFC and HCFC free polyurethane insulation to provide extra protection against the elements with R-values up to 10.9, U-Factor of no higher than 1.00, through curtain STC up to 28, and install STC up to 21.
•Weatherseals reduce the number of air exchanges between two climate/temperature controlled environments through a fenestration assembly, such as door or window. When it comes to perimeter sealing more is found to be better.
•When selecting an insulated door, it is important to review IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) requirements.
•Calculated R-value (also known as U-value) is an ASHRAE calculation of thermal resistance property of a material.
•Tested U-factor provides actual installed door energy transfer resistance and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). Energy transfer is the exchange of energy between two climate controlled environments. Solar heat gain coefficient is the amount of solar heat being absorbed by the door system. Generally, finish or color with high solar reflectance (bright colors) will provide lower solar heat gain coefficient and therefore lower U-factor. Lower tested U-factor provides lower energy transfer and lower solar heat gain.

Flood Vents for Parking Garage Doors

Posted by Jai Patel on Thu, Dec 17, 2015 @ 05:09 PM

Depending on what market you are in, the local authority having jurisdiction may require you to have a garage door with flood vents our louvers to allow water to flow in and out in the event of a dangerous flood or storm.

We have helped a handful of customers in flood plane areas create a door system that meet the local code requirements.

The photos below is of a residential multi-family condo building in Jersey City, NJ.   These doors were installed the our own "SuperTechs!"

 Request Estimate

black_garage_door_vent_flood_louver_garage_door_jersey_city_nj.jpg

The vent door is latched closed until it comes in contact with flood water. Entering flood water lifts the patented internal floats which unlatch and allow the door to rotate open. This allows the flood water to automatically enter and exit through the frame opening, relieving the pressure from the foundation walls. Certified flood debris clearance is demonstrated with a 3” diameter opening when the flood door is activated.

Hydrostatic pressure caused by rapidly rising flood waters can easily destroy the average garage door.


 

 

OTHER OPTIONS:

 

LOUVER VENT PANEL

There is an alternative option that is not rated for flood water - the louver panel system.  This is used when air exhause is important.  See here:
