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 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.

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.

Optional Operator Accessories for Overhead Doors

Commercial doors are an important part of many businesses. These doors give you and your staff an easy way to accept deliveries, ship products and move large pieces of machinery in and out of your business. Yes, these industrial doors are very handy! However, did you realize that you have choices when it comes to your commercial door? The addition of optional operator accessories -that work with your commercial door operator- can make certain tasks easier or improve the safety of your commercial or industrial door.

Overhead Door Accessories

Some of the optional commercial door accessories you may wish to consider for your loading dock or back of the house area are as follow: 
  • Timer to Close Module – Available for the RMX, RSX and RHX operators, this option provides an automatic door closing feature. It has simple installation instructions and the operator system of your door should automatically recognize the accessory.
  • Auxiliary Output – This gives you the outputs you need to add a horn, flashing light or lamp to the RMX, RSX or RHX operator.
  • Interface Module – This allows you to interface both two-wire sensing edges and the X-Series of operators so you can use them together.
  • Radio Transmitters – You may want to control your overhead door from a distance; if so, these radio transmitters (that come in 1 – 4 button styles) are a great addition to your system.
  • Bottom Sensing Edge - If you have an RMX, RSX or RHX operator and safety is a concern, this is a great solution. The bottom sensing edge stops the door and reopens it when it makes contact with any obstruction.
  • Safety Beams – Another optional for stopping or re-opening a door when something in the way are these safety beams. These safety sensors for the X-Series operators can sense when something is in the way and will stop or reverse the door.
As you can see, there are many optional accessories available for your commercial door. Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC is the perfect company to call if you are looking for any of these accessories or even a new door system.
