Choosing the Right Roll Down Doors

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Fri, Aug 28, 2015 @ 11:16 AM

When you see a commercial truck backed up to a loading dock, you can assume that opening will be secured by a roll down door when the truck pulls away. While home garages have doors that roll up and down, they are quite different from the roll down doors you will see in commercial applications.

Whereas a garage door may cycle once or twice a day over a few years, a commercial roll down door may be called on to endure thousands of cycles of operation every month. Moreover, roll up doors for industrial uses are designed to meet a wide range of different applications and needs.


Multiple Designs and Features for Multiple Applications

For example, some roll down doors are manufactured as insulated closures to endure drastic environmental conditions and temperature extremes. Other commercial roll up doors are uninsulated but designed to present attractive exteriors. Still other roll down doors may provide extra security, and some are designed to meet all these and other criteria.

The great advantage to modern roll down doors lies in this ability to match your investment and specifications to specific situation. For example, a parking lot may need only a light-weight mesh construction manual roll up door to limit access. On the other hand, your cold-storage facility inside a warehouse might require a heavy-duty roll up door that is fully insulated and motor-driven.
