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.

Looking For a Security Grille For Your Shop?

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Nov 18, 2019 8:50:00 PM

When you are looking for the perfect way to prevent unauthorized access, and discourage entry to storefronts, counters, and other areas, security grilles are a great option. This is a style of security doors that allow a line of vision into the unauthorized area, without sacrificing safety.

While security grilles can be used alone, they are also sometimes used with plate glass storefronts or other types of commercial door setups to deter theft from smash-and-grab robberies. 

Different Types of Commercial Security Grilles:


1.
Side-Folding Full Enclosure Security Grilles are great when it is important to be able to easily open and close the gate.

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC 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 commercial overhead door.

Top 12 Benefits of Side Folding Grilles/Doors

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

Side folding security 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.

  1. EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door has a clear anodized aluminum pocket door with a turn catch that gives a modern commercial finish. Rolling/Coiling leaves a gap in the ceiling.

  2. EZ's Side Folding by Overhead Door requires zero floor space when built into a 6-inch stud wall.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Side Folding Emergency Egress Door has true push - outward action, Rolling/Coiling goes up - does not meet outward  requirement code

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Side Folding can be 100's of feet wide without support posts. Rolling/Coiling as with corners needs support post/columns to make large straight layouts.

  9. 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 of headroom.

  10. Servicing Side Folding Security Grille/Door will only require dropping on a piece of track from the ceiling-Rolling/Coiling may require removal of the ceiling area entirely around the counterbalance assembly to service the product.

  11. Side Folding never needs a motor-assisted operation, no matter the size, even over 100 feet wide. Rolling/Coiling will need a motor over 16 feet wide.

  12. Any width Side Folding can fit 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.

Added Protection of Insulated Rolling Steel Guides

Posted by Jai Patel on Jun 23, 2014 8:34:00 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.
