- Standard doors are designed to meet 20psf (90mph to 110mph) wind resistance.
- Higher wind load 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.
- Weather seals 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 the 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.

Below you will find a quick guide with a comparison chart at the end for those looking for a low headroom sectional and rolling overhead door for tight spaces:

Some additional key benefits that these aluminum glass doors can bring to your business are:

- Lightweight: Having a lighter door will extend the lifespan of the opening and closing mechanism and torsion spring. With less maintenance required, comes lower operating costs.
- Modern/Contemporary look: If you're looking for a polished look, the aluminum glass doors are ideal. 
- Non-Corrosive: Aluminum overhead garage doors are non-corrosive, which means they will not rust and will be able to withstand exposure to weather conditions.
