Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jul 24, 2013 5:17:00 PM

Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

When you are shopping for commercial doors, the sheer number of choice can be a bit overwhelming. One of the options you may be drawn to are sectional doors. However, even within this industrial door category, you are left with a couple of options. Should you choose an insulated or non-insulated door? Learn more about the two different options and determine which will be the best option for your loading dock, storage area or other commercial door needs.

 

Sectional Doors

 

Insulated Sectional Doors

Insulated sectional steel doors are ideal for any business that requires temperature control. This would include facilities such as warehouses, cold storage units, firehouses, restaurants and even municipal buildings. These commercial overhead doors can work to keep cold air out too. This is ideal in the cold New Jersey Winters! Finally, there are other benefits to using an insulated door too. They are generally quieter and sturdier than the non-insulated types.

 
Secitonal Door

Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

While insulated doors are normally a preferred option. There are certain instances that you may choose one of these non-insulated doors. The up-front cost is often less; however, this may be reduced by the increased energy bills that occur when you have non-insulated doors. The most important thing is to make the right choice for your particular business.
