Add Colors to Your Door

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Tue, Sep 02, 2014 @ 08:22 AM

A high quality, durable door can look good too. The Overhead Door Company offers a number of options that can improve your door's looks while adding strenght too.

There’s no reason to sacrifice style for the sake of durability! You may think that a door that looks good would be less durable or not as strong as one that is a boring grey, white or beige. However, nothing could be further from the truth. You can add colors to your door while adding strength too.

The Overhead Door Company offers Tiger Drylac Powder Coatings which not only offers you dozens of different color choices while at the same time providing added strength to your door. These coatings can protect your door from sun, rain and other hazards that over time cause a door to fade or lose strength. There is no better solution for you—and with a quick turnaround time too.

You don’t have to stick with that same old boring door color that everyone uses. If you would like to learn more about how we can add color to your doors, contact us at The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands and NYC. We can help you choose the right color to enhance the exterior of your building while retaining all the benefits of a well-made, high quality Overhead Door Company door.

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.

The Advanced Performance Security Grille offers excellent performance for commercial and industrial customers who have been searching for something sturdy, safe, high quality and low maintenance.

Every client's security grille needs are different, but this new product developed by Overhead Door can be useful for a wide variety of business, including parking garages, loading docks, performance venues, manufacturing facilities or retail businesses -- basically anywhere that a client needs to make a location secure but also wants a grilled that's safe yet simple, and easy to minimize when it's not needed.

advanced performance grille 676

Some of the state-of-the-art features of the new product include:

  • A spring-less design which can minimize the need for routine maintenance. Wear and tear from regular openings and closings can be commonly seen with spring-loaded grilles.
  • Exceptional safety features that include a built-in stop brake that prevents uncontrolled travel plus several sets of sensors plus a reverse motor, which can all prevent damage and entrapment.
  • A 2-year limited warranty on door components and a 5-year limited warranty on the motor.
  • High-quality construction which includes high-strength links, galvanized solid-steel rods, plus aluminum links and spacer tubes.
  • A high-cycle drive and gear system that's always smooth and doesn't jerk or jolt while the grille is in operation or when it begins or ends its cycle.

RapidGrille Model 676 customers can choose a straight lattice pattern or optional brick pattern, and can also select a complete steel curtain; a powder-coated curtain; or a grille which contains aluminum links and spacer tubes.

Grille controls and operation details can be found right at your fingertips, in the form of an interactive panel that displays info about the opening and closing cycle, a closing timer, plus any helpful system diagnostics.

Foeng Tjong, Overhead Door's commercial product manager for rolling products, said the Model 676 has been engineered to perform at high levels over long periods of time.

Preventative Maintenance Program For Overhead Doors

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Thu, Sep 05, 2013 @ 08:05 PM

Preventative Maintenance Program for Overhead Doors

Sectional Steel Doors

WHY IS PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?

The Overhead Door Company strongly recommends a regularly scheduled preventative maintenance program for commercial overhead doors.  Our preventative maintenance plans improves operational efficiency, safety, and reliability.  Overhead door preventative maintenance not only decreases costly downtime by preventing some types of industrial door malfunctions, 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 PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE 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 PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE?

Overhead doors include a number of elements which can be under high spring tension, including bottom fixtures, cables, drums, pulleys, shafts, and brackets and only a trained service person should attempt repairs to these items.  Winding, repairs, and spring adjustments must also be completed by trained service professionals. In addition to these repairs and adjustments which can only be completed by trained professionals, it’s also wise to have a professional technician perform regular preventative maintenance because professional technicians have extensive experience in identifying the potential for problems before they have a chance to occur. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE BE SCHEDULED?

The frequency with which a customer schedules service technicians to perform preventative maintenance on their 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, contact The Overhead Door Company for a consultation.

Rytec Spiral High-Speed Parking Garage Door

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Sat, Aug 17, 2013 @ 04:33 PM

Rytec Spiral High-Speed Parking Garage Door

High traffic situations call for a high-speed door. However, to obtain that high speed, you do not want to sacrifice security or good looks. Luckily, the Rytec Spiral high-speed commercial garage door can easily meet all your needs at a price that is comparable with other high-speed rolling steel doors.

rytec2

This door offers and opening speed as high as 60 inches each second. This is a must in high-traffic areas, such as when you require an overhead door for a parking garage or other area. However, the speed is variable and you can program the opening and closing speed independent of each other to optimize traffic flow. Few doors offer this type of flexibility, let alone with the ability to reach these high speeds.

Installation made in Bergen, NJ (Alexan Cityview)

The Rytec Spiral is one of the most secure and durable. The opening mechanism has no metal to metal contact. The rollers in the track offer a whisper quiet opening, making this door a great option in spaces where a loud, clanging opening would be a burden. As far as durability, the reinforced hinges, durable membrane and high-quality seals offer 100% protection against dust, pollution and drafts. The anodized aluminum will not corrode—offering you a door that will look great for years to come in even the worst weather conditions. As an added benefit, the motion control and programmed opening width can provide energy savings too.

Finally, the good looks of this commercial garage door sets it apart from other similar doors. The crisp lines, modular construction and good looks will be perfect in many situations. When you need this or any other commercial overhead doors, call The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC and let us discuss the options you have available for you.

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.

Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Wed, Jul 24, 2013 @ 05:17 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.


Sectional Door

 

When it comes time to purchase a sectional steel door for your place of business, it is important to be well-informed. Spend some time browsing the options available here at the Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and New York City. Then, give us a call or contact us with any questions or concerns you have about sectional steel doors or other styles of industrial doors.

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.
