Common Commercial & Industrial Garage Door Issues

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on May 30, 2022 5:54:00 PM

In this article, you will find the most common commercial and industrial garage door issues and the preventive steps you can take before your garage door needs a professional repair.

Though commercial and industrial garage doors are built to withstand heavy use and are constructed with heavy material to last long, these doors can still present issues to business owners.

Most Common Garage Door Issues

After 40+ years in serving NJ & NYC Metro Area, we can share the most common garage door issues for commercial and industrial doors.

1. Remote Control Issues
You should frequently check that the batteries are still working. If not, replaced them and reprogram the remote.

2. Old or Damaged Torsion Springs
As the garage door springs have extreme tension and help lift these heavy doors. If the spring snaps suddenly, there is a possibility that this can cause serious injuries, damages, and even causalities.

3. Worn or Damaged Rollers
Ask a garage door repair pro for service when you identify this issue. The solution will be: Aim to keep your rollers and their tracks free from debris and frequently inspect for wear and tear.

4. Worn or Damaged Cables
If you find that your cables are torsion or worn out, ask for professional service. You should inspect them regularly.

5. Damaged Sections or Panels
A new door will offer more warranty options than replacing damaged sections, though it can be a more economical solution when comparing both.

6. Improper Alignment
This issue also needs the assistance of a professional to be repaired when you find gaps between the rails or, bent curved metal.

Counter Doos (Shutters) & Fire-Rated Counter Doors | NYC & NJ Area

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Mar 17, 2022 11:21:00 AM

When it comes to keeping your business secure, there are many things to consider. Here at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC, we have tons of options for all areas of your store, warehouse, or office. Rolling doors are a great choice for loading docks, but did you know there is another type of rolling door available? Rolling doors that are built for counter service are called counter doors or counter shutters. Any type of business that has a counter operation struggles with how to keep equipment and stock safe during non-business hours. Rolling counter doors are a great solution.

These types of security doors allow you to operate with no worry. The door rolls out of the way during business hours but slides down to give you the security you need when you are not around.

Counter security grilles are another option. They give the same security but do allow you to see into the “behind the counter” area while they are closed. This can be a great way to build desire among passersby, especially if you have a business with interesting stock.

The safety of your counter-based business is only as good as the door you use. Check out the options for service counter doors we have at The Overhead Door Company. The security counter doors will allow you to get into and out of the business easily but protect your investment.

Preventative Maintenance Plans For Overhead-Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jan 5, 2022 10:51:00 PM

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC strongly recommends a regularly scheduled preventative maintenance plan for commercial overhead doors.  Our preventative maintenance plans improve operational efficiency, safety, and reliability.  

rolling-gate-slats-springs-repair-replacement-company-new-jersey-new-yorkPreventive Maintenance Reduces the Need for Emergency Repairs

Why Is a Maintenance Plan for an Overhead Door So Important?

Overhead Door preventative maintenance not only decreases costly downtime by preventing some types of industrial door malfunctions, but it can also decrease repair expenses over the long term.  Scheduling commercial doors maintenance regularly reduces the need for emergency repairs to overhead doors.  

What Does a Preventive Plan Entail?

Preventative maintenance is focused on keeping your overhead doors in peak condition at all times, instead of only performing maintenance in response to a needed repair.  

Among other things, preventative maintenance includes keeping the track surfaces of the overhead door clean and free of obstructions, grease, and oil, making certain bolts and fasteners are correctly tightened, and addressing any damage or wear and tear which has occurred over time. The door surface and hardware should also be checked on a regular basis, to maintain the functionality of the roller assembly, bottom seal, hinge points, and other elements.  The counterbalance should also be examined periodically to ensure that the drum, cable, torsion spring, shaft bearings, set screws, and collars are working as intended.  Some elements may need periodic lubrication, while others may need tightness adjustments or replacement due to corrosion.

Why Schedule Professional Preventive Maintenance for Your Overhead Door? 

Overhead doors include a number of elements that can be under high spring tension, including bottom fixtures, cables, drums, pulleys, shafts, and brackets, and only professionals should attempt repairs to these items. These springs are under extreme pressure which can be dangerous to release. If they snap suddenly, there is a possibility that they can cause serious injuries, damages, and even causalities. 

Winding, repairs, and spring adjustments must also be completed by trained personnel.

Another advantage is that a professional technician will have extensive experience in identifying the potential for problems before they have a chance to occur.

How Often Should a Preventive Maintenance Be Scheduled? 

The frequency with which a customer schedules service technicians to perform preventative maintenance on industrial doors or other equipment will vary according to the climate and other conditions under which the door regularly operates.  Some preventative maintenance may be required monthly, while other types of maintenance should be undertaken every three to six months. To determine the best preventative maintenance schedule for your overhead doors or loading dock equipment contact The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC for a consultation.

2. Commercial Rolling Doors | Roller Shutters | Coiling Doors

Certain styles are used within buildings, to separate sections of a building into individual areas.


2.1 Advanced Service Doors
 

When service and security are important, one of these advanced service doors is the perfect solution. They offer fast open and close cycles that are in line with a sectional door; however, you get the increased security of a rolling door.
