Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

There are so many options when it comes to commercial doors. Depending on the area you are securing, separating, or monitoring access to, you may want a particular type. However, when it comes down to it, we sell two main types here at The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands and New York City, sectional doors and rolling doors. Within those two types, you will find several different subtypes.

Learn more about commercial sectional doors and commercial rolling doors, as well as the subtypes we offer, so you have a better idea of what type of door you need for your particular commercial need.

1. Commercial Sectional Doors

Sectional doors are created with convenience in mind. These doors work with a controller that can make opening and closing them a breeze. With options like Thermacore®, sectional doors are a great choice for spaces that need temperature control. Today’s sectional doors are well constructed for reliable use and minimal maintenance is required. Some of the more popular types of commercial sectional doors available at The Overhead Door Company include the following:

1.1 Advanced Sectional Doors:

For advanced performance, many industrial and commercial buildings need a simple, well-rounded sectional door. The advanced sectional doors at The Overhead Door Company offer climate control, ease of use and durability. While useful in a number of situations, these are a great choice for industrial and commercial applications.

2. Commercial Rolling Doors | Roller Shutters | Coiling Doors

Rolling doors, also known as rolling shutters and coiling doors, are created to protect the contents within an establishment. These doors are easy to secure and allow you to protect the interior of your commercial structure. 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.

A standard rolling steel door (also known as service door, coiling door, or roll-up door) is the go-to option for loading docks at warehouses, factories, and storage facilities. It offers great security at a great price.

2.3 Fire Rated Doors & Fire-Rated Counter Doors

In certain buildings, such as schools and hospitals, a fire-rated door is a necessity—both for safety and to meet the regulations of the city or county. These fire-rated doors offer many of the same options of our standard service doors with the added fire rating.

A counter door is a perfect solution—you can find many of the same features as are available in normal service doors.

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles/Doors

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Jan 29, 2015 8:20:00 AM

Side folding security grilles offer many security benefits, some of which you've never even thought of! For the curious or the unconvinced, this post lists out 12 of the top benefits.

Side Folding Full Enclosure Grille 675 WideSide Folding Security Grille

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles/Doors

Some areas just don’t have the right layout to afford a big, heavy door that closes at night. Yet certain high-value businesses such as banks, jewelry stores, document printers, or electronics shops, to name a few, still need heavy security during off-hours to protect against vandalism or theft.

Enter the side-folding door or grille, which you can install easily, requiring only a small amount of wall space for anchoring on each side. It provides top-notch protection for valuables and sensitive information but opens and closes easily so any employee can operate it. These doors provide a versatile solution for inner spaces, such as those inside malls or hotels, as well as outer exits, and work for retail, industrial and commercial settings of all kinds.

  1. EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door has a clear anodized aluminum pocket door with a turn catch that gives a modern commercial finish. Rolling/Coiling leaves a gap in the ceiling.

  2. EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door requires zero floor space when built into a 6-inch stud wall.

  3. EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door has a steel-framed pocket that can support headers for smaller openings-the only "headers supporting" Side Folding Grille/Door in the industry.

  4. ADA locking height is standard at 42 inches - perfectly in line with the ADA standards of 15 inches off the floor to no higher than 48 inches. Rolling/Coiling locking is on the bottom bar, on the floor.

  5. Side Folding Emergency Egress Door has true push - outward action, Rolling/Coiling goes up - does not meet outward  requirement code

  6. Side Folding can flow almost any layout that can imagine i.e. special radius curves, neo-angels, circles - Rolling/Coiling can only be straight. Overhead Door is the only company that makes special curves "in-house" in just days - not weeks.

  7. Inside or outside comers do not need post/column when using Side Folding, keeping the opening clear from obstacles of view, Rolling/Coiling will always require post/columns.

  8. Side Folding can be 100's of feet wide without support posts. Rolling/Coiling as with corners needs support post/columns to make large straight layouts.

  9. Side Folding requires only 1 1/2 inches of headroom for the track and never requires a bottom track. Rolling will require 10 to 20 inches of headroom.

  10. Servicing Side Folding Security Grille/Door will only require dropping on a piece of track from the ceiling-Rolling/Coiling may require removal of the ceiling area entirely around the counterbalance assembly to service the product.

  11. Side Folding never needs a motor-assisted operation, no matter the size, even over 100 feet wide. Rolling/Coiling will need a motor over 16 feet wide.

  12. Any width Side Folding can fit almost any high-rise buildings freight elevator, Rolling/Coiling is limited if the Grille/Door is wider than 10 feet, it will not fit it in most freight elevators and would require a major cost to install on the higher floors.

Replace Your Bodega Gate with a Premium Roll-Up Security Grille

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Jul 29, 2014 11:00:00 AM
New York City has come a long way with crime. The city is no longer the crime capitol it once was.

With historically low crime rates, the need for the clunky bodega security gates is fading. You can now get by with a gate that is attractive as well as functional.

security-grille-upward-coiling-671-seriesSecurity Upward Coiling Grille

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC recommends replacing your old, outdated gate with a new premium upward coiling security grille in our standard clear anodized aluminum. Today’s gates will give you the protection you still desire, but look better and last longer than ever before. In fact, we can also powder coat your overhead door with up to 197 colors—giving you the ability to match or blend with your other exterior designs.

Available in aluminum, galvanized steel or stainless steel, these security grilles are nearly undetectable when rolled up, so your bodega looks inviting and friendly. However, when they are rolled down, they protect you from unauthorized entry. There is no better combination between form and function available!

Aluminum Doors at Dune Studios - Success Story

Aluminum Doors at Dune Studios - Success Story

Everyone knows that aluminum sectional doors are a functional way to secure your building, and allow easy entry or loading/unloading of large items or even vehicles. However, if you are looking for form as well as function, take a page from the books of Dune Studios.

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & New York City had the pleasure of working with Dune Studios recently on a large renovation project. Dune Studios is a full-service studio offering photoshoots, equipment rental, and other related services. Because of this, the company does need to portray sophistication in every aspect of its facility.

Our team of experts helped them choose the right commercial doors for their studio that would allow for ease-of-use, but at the same time would bring to mind the modern, sophisticated look that the rest of the facility demonstrated. 

They selected an aluminum glass door that perfectly matched the rest of the studio, and makes the perfect backdrop to the type of high-fashion photoshoots that Dune Studios is known for in the industry.
