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 of what type of door you need for your particular commercial need.

1. 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 is required. Some of the more popular types of commercial sectional doors available at The Overhead Door Company include the following:

1.1 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 industrial and commercial applications.

2. Commercial Rolling Doors | Roller Shutters | Coiling Doors

Rolling doors, also known as rolling shutters and coiling doors, 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.


2.1 Advanced Service Doors
 

When service and security are important, one of these advanced service doors is the perfect solution. They offer fast open and close cycles that are in line with a sectional door; however, you get the increased security of a rolling door.

A standard rolling steel door (also known as service door, coiling door, or roll-up door) is the go-to option for loading docks at warehouses, factories, and storage facilities. It offers great security at a great price.

2.3 Fire Rated Doors & Fire-Rated Counter 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.
