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.

Protecting your staff, and yourself, is very important to you, of course. Luckily, there is one way you can offer protection without too much added work or stress on your part--having your fire doors drop tested. Testing your fire doors is incredibly important. Consider these four reasons why you need to make it a priority:

  • Safety of Your Staff and Vendors – A well-maintained door that passes our drop test will keep you and those who work around it safe—even in an emergency situation.
  • Long Life of the Door – Our fire door drop test will help find small problems that could turn into big ones. By finding and fixing these issues now, you will assure that the door lasts for years to come.
  • Government Compliance – There are certain requirements that you must meet to assure that you are doing what is necessary to protect your building and its occupants. Our test will make sure you meet the standards put in place by NFPA, IDA, IDEA and UL. This can prevent costly fines or even potential closure. 
  • Insurance Requirements – Your private insurance company may have further requirements when it comes to testing your fire door. Our standard drop test will meet or exceed all of these. If not, we’ll work with you to make certain we come up with a solution that does.

Don’t put your business, staff and structure at risk. Scheduling a fire door drop test is easy. Call or contact us at the Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC today. We’ll help arrange a time to take care of this important task and put your mind at ease.

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.

Added Protection of Insulated Rolling Steel Guides

Posted by Jai Patel on Mon, Jun 23, 2014 @ 08:34 PM

 

Your insulated rolling steel door has many important parts. These all come together to help the door work as it should, allow for easy access to your loading dock or garage area and protect against fluctuating outdoor temperatures. However, one part you may not think about are the insulated rolling steel guides.

What Do Insulated Rolling Steel Guides Do?

If your door does not have insulated guides, it is much easier for wind to get into your indoor space as well as for the air that you keep cool or warm per your specifications to escape. The simple addition of insulated rolling steel guides can greatly reduce the amount you spend on utilities each month. Plus, adding insulated rolling steel guides can often make the operation of the door a bit quieter—which can be vitally important in some particular situations.

How Does Installation Work

Installing insulated rolling steel guides is a job that requires expert attention to detail. If the right guides are not chosen and properly installed, the door will never function as it should. An overhead door expert should come to your place of business, check out the door you want to upgrade and work with you to decide the best course of action. After the guides are installed, you will not notice a difference in the operation of the door—it will still open and close just as quickly and accurately as it ever did.

If you have any further questions about insulated rolling steel guides or any other aspect of your rolling steel door, do not hesitate to contact us at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC. Our team of garage and overhead door experts is always happy to help you with repairing or improving your current doors or making the decision about when the time is right to replace your door with something new.

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.
