Repairing Your Loading Dock Leveler

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Wed, Mar 11, 2015 @ 10:30 AM

Your loading dock leveler provides a valuable service to your daily operations. Namely, it creates a smooth and level surface between the loading dock and a vehicle, allowing for safer and more efficient loading or unloading of goods. This “bridge” between the truck and dock not only makes your job easier, it ensures safety, reliability and standardization in your operations, so you can’t afford to wait if you need leveler repair.

If you aren’t yet in need of repair, you should consider instituting a maintenance program. An efficient, reliable dock leveler maintenance routine can minimize the chances of dock board repair costing you a lot of money or knocking out your operations for a long period of time. It also increases efficiency and reliability of your operations, extends equipment life and lessens wear and tear, and reduces the chances of malfunction.

Regular maintenance also helps you establish a relationship with professional experts, so that you know who to call in an emergency. Moreover, it puts you on a priority list so that if your loading dock leveler does ever malfunction, you won’t have to wait to get help, nor tie up your maintenance personnel to fix the problem.

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles/Doors

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Thu, Jan 29, 2015 @ 08:20 AM

Side folding doors and 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.

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.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves: read on to learn about 12 benefits of side-folding doors.

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles Doors resized 600

Overhead Door - http://www.overhead-doors.com/

  • EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door has a clear anodized aluminum pocket door with turn catch that gives a modern commercial finish. Rolling/Coiling leaves a gap in the ceiling.
  • EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door requires zero floor space when built into 6 inch stud wall.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Side Folding Emergency Egress Door has true push - outward action, Rolling/Coiling goes up - does not meet outward  requirement code
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Side Folding can be 100's of feet wide without support posts. Rolling/Coiling as with corners need support post/columns to make large straight layouts.
  • 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 headroom.
  • Servicing Side Folding Security  Grille/Door will only require dropping on piece of track from the ceiling-Rolling/Coiling may require removal of the ceiling area entirely around the counterbalance assembly to service the product.
  • Side Folding never needs motor assisted operation, no matter  the size, even over 100 feet wide. Rolling/Coiling will need a motor over 16 feet wide.
  • Any width Side Folding can fit i  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.

Protect Against Rust or Reduced Life Expectancy

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Wed, Aug 13, 2014 @ 09:00 AM

Find out how The Overhead Door Company can provide you with extra protection on your doors--giving you peace of mind now and for years to come.

Protect Against Rust or Reduced Life Expectancy

When you are in the market for a new garage door, you may not realize how different a door can be from one company to another. In fact, many local door companies may provide you with a door that has raw, galvanized steel and no protective coating. While you may save some money up front by buying one of these doors, you will experience a reduced life expectancy—in fact, some rusting may occur within the first five years.

However, The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC offer a number of ways to protect your door and extend the expected life. A few of these include:

  • Standard – Our Polyester, two-coat system with a polyester based top coat that provides excellent protection.
  • PowderGuard Premium – This is a weather resistant polyester Two-coat system with based top coat—available in 197 colors with custom color match for excellent options in color.
  • PowderGuard Zinc – This zinc enriched powder coat provide protection against corrosion and outperforms both hot and cold dipped galvanized steel. 197 colors and color match available for your convenience.
  • PowderGuard Industrial – This textured powder coat provides a thicker, more scratch resistant coat for added product protection. It also comes with all our color options.

Our powder coatings are available in up to 197 colors—so you can get the style you desire as well as the function. If you’d like to learn more about these options, call or contact us at The Overhead Door Company. One of our experts would be happy to help you make a decision that can protect your door and keep your door performing its function and looking great for years to come!

Don't struggle with a door that will rust and weaken over time. Check out the great options at The Overhead Door Company.

Replace Your Bodega Gate with a Premium Security Grille

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Tue, Jul 29, 2014 @ 11:00 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.

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and 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 the 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 doors 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!

If you would like to learn more, call or contact us at The Overhead Door Company today. One of our experts would be happy to help you find the solution to your security (and design) concerns.

Aluminum Doors & Dune Studios Success Story

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Sun, Aug 11, 2013 @ 03:20 PM

Aluminum Doors & 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 photo shoots, equipment rental and other related services. Because of this, the company does need to portray sophistication with every aspect of their 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 photo shoots that Dune Studios is known for in the industry.

Commercial Doors: Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Fri, Jul 19, 2013 @ 06:33 PM

Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

dilema

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 what type of door you need for your particular commercial need.

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 required. Some of the more popular types of commercial sectional doors available at The Overhead Door Company include the following:

  • 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 commercial garages.
  • Thermacore Doors – For industries that need the upmost in thermal efficiency, the Thermacore door is a perfect solution. These thick doors keep temperatures at a steady level, saving you money over time.
  • Sectional Steel Doors – For one of the best combinations of heavy-duty workmanship and convenience, sectional steel doors are a great solution. You often find these doors on fire stations, commercial garages and retail establishments.
  • Aluminum Doors – Aluminum doors offer a sense of architectural style while still providing protection and the ability to easily open and close your commercial door. This is a good choice for buildings where it is important to make a good impression.
Sectional Doors

Commercial Rolling Doors

Rolling doors, also known as rolling shutters, 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.

  • Advanced Service Doors – When service AND security are important, one of these advanced service doors is the perfect solution. They offer the fast open and close cycles that are in line with a sectional door; however, you get the increased security of a rolling door.
  • Rolling Steel Doors – A standard rolling steel door is the go-to option for loading docks at warehouses, factories and storage facilities. It offers great security at a great price.
  • Fire Rated 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.
  • Counter Doors (Counter Shutters) - When you have a service counter, such as at a snack bar, service counter or ticketing area, you need a way to protect the space when the counter is closed for the day. A counter door is the perfect solution—you can find many of the same features as are available in normal service doors.
  • Security Grilles - Security grilles allow line of sight into a specific area, but still provide security and protection. These are often used in shopping malls, airports and similar spaces where it is necessary to close down certain areas while leaving the main walkway open.
Rolling Doors


As you can see, there are a number of options when it comes to commercial doors. Taking the time to understand the types of available doors will make it easier to decide on which type is best for your particular structure.

For more information, please give us a call at 973-471-4060, email us at: info@dockndoor.com or visit our website www.overhead-doors.com.
