Posted by Overhead Door Expert on May 3, 2021 9:26:00 PM

If you've been looking for one of the most cost-efficient ways to protect your property and building, consider the many benefits of a high-speed/high-performance door.

If you are trying to decide on a worthy investment in the security, convenience, and overall quality of your storage space, warehouse, or loading dock, you should look at the possibility of adding a metal, fabric, or rubber high-performance door. Today’s high-performance doors offer:

- High-Speed: High-performance doors offer you more speed than any other type of door. This can help you increase your productivity and efficiency while remaining energy efficient. Plus, a fast door will allow you to get in and out more quickly—reducing energy expenditure in that manner too.

 

- Security: One of the reasons you are considering the installation of a roll-up door in the first place is security, so why not go with the very best in security possible? These high-performance doors can help you protect your stock, your employees, and your property from both natural and unnatural dangers.

- Durability: Instead of springs, a high-performance door uses a direct drive motor. This makes the door much more durable and less likely to experience those unexpected problems. In addition, with advanced diagnostics, troubleshooting is easier than ever before.

Preventive Maintenance for Commercial Doors | NYC & NJ Area

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Feb 17, 2021 11:28:00 AM

Preventative maintenance — that is something you utilize for your car, home, and even your body! When it comes to your business, there is another area you should consider maintaining preventatively—your commercial overhead doors and other security grilles. Overhead Door Co. of The Meadowlands & NYC offers preventive maintenance for commercial doors in NYC & NJ area.

Whether you have aluminum doors, rolling steel doors, sectional steel doors, or another form of commercial door, properly maintaining your commercial door can have some major benefits. Consider these three reasons why servicing commercial doors before they actually break just makes sense:

1. Financial Benefits
If you use your high-speed doors or other commercial doors daily and do not keep them properly maintained, you can have some unexpected and costly repairs. By having your doors inspected and serviced regularly, you can spot problems before they start. Properly lubricating and making adjustments will save you money. Replacement parts are often more affordable when you buy them ahead of time too.

2. Safety First
High-performance commercial doors have many moving parts that wear out and break over time. When these parts are broken, they can become noisy, hard to use and could even cause injuries. In the worst cases, hinges can break and cables snap which could cause major property damage or even hurt you or your staff. Looking into commercial door maintenance ahead of time can prevent this.

3. Keep Your Business Up and Running
You want to keep your business running on a day-to-day basis. If you have broken fire-rated doors, security grilles, counter doors or other parts, you could run into problems that make you shut down. Missed days at work are bad for business. By making an appointment with Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC, you can avoid these closures and keep your business running smoothly.

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles/Doors

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

Side folding 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.

 

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles Doors resized 600

  • 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.

Add Colors to Your Commercial Overhead Door | NJ & NYC Area

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Sep 2, 2014 8:22:00 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 & 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.

Consider these four reasons why you need to make it a priority:

  • 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.
