Preparing for Your Commercial Overhead Door Installation

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Feb 24, 2015 9:37:00 AM

When you’re planning to install a commercial garage door, you want to do it right the first time. That’s why we’ve included a handy list of steps and instructions to make sure you can easily prepare the opening for your commercial overhead door installation. Below you’ll find step by step measurements and explanations that will reduce the chances of mishap and increase your speed, efficiency and accuracy, so make sure to read carefully.

Preparing The Opening

We will start by discussing what you need to do to ensure that your garage door will fit seamlessly into the space prepared for it, and that that space will be able to support the door throughout its operational lifetime. This includes the materials of which the jamb and header must be constructed, some notes on weather stripping, and important facts to keep in mind depending on situation, such as low temperature.

Preparing The Opening

Then we will move on to a discussion of various space requirements to ensure that, once installed, the garage door can move freely, open all the way and will not get stuck. The first of these is headroom requirement, which is the amount of room needed above the door. The second is backroom requirement, as measured from the door to the back of the garage. The last is side room requirement. Depending on your track size and other factors, your room requirements will vary, so pay close attention to them.

Preparing The Opening

Lastly we will end with a breakdown of parts so that you know everything you need before beginning installation. It is a good idea to match up this parts list with the parts you have before beginning the install process. That way, if you need to make an adjustment, you don’t have to halt work to do it. Ready?

Aluminum Doors at Dune Studios - Success Story

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Aug 11, 2013 3:20:00 PM

Aluminum Doors at Dune Studios - Success Story

Everyone knows that aluminum sectional doors are a functional way to secure your building, and allow easy entry or loading/unloading of large items or even vehicles. However, if you are looking for form as well as function, take a page from the books of Dune Studios.

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & New York City had the pleasure of working with Dune Studios recently on a large renovation project. Dune Studios is a full-service studio offering photo shoots, equipment rental and other related services. Because of this, the company does need to portray sophistication with every aspect of their facility.

Our team of experts helped them choose the right commercial doors for their studio that would allow for ease-of-use, but at the same time would bring to mind the modern, sophisticated look that the rest of the facility demonstrated. 

They selected an aluminum glass door that perfectly matched the rest of the studio, and makes the perfect backdrop to the type of high-fashion photo shoots that Dune Studios is known for in the industry.

Protect Your Premises With a Fire Door

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jun 29, 2013 2:25:00 PM

Fire-Rated Doors

Depending on the needs of your company, regular commercial doors may not provide the safety you need. If you work in an environment where you are worried about fire, one of the fire doors available here at Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC may be the perfect solution.

Fire Rated Door

Types of Doors

Fire doors come in many different styles. For instance, we carry fire-rated counter doors that are ideal for use in areas where you only need a door to reach from the ceiling to the counter. Another popular option is fire-rated insulated rolling service doors. These allow you to maintain a consistent temperature inside your building, provide security and have that protection against fire. For a finished look, the integral frame & sill fire counter doors are another option.

How a Fire Door Protects You

So, why do you need a fire door? A fire door is designed to slow the spread of both, smoke and fire, from one part of your building to another. This can give you occupants of the building a chance to escape, and may also protect valuable equipment or merchandise from damage during a small fire. A fire door is superior to a standard door in protecting because it is made of multiple layers and is both, self-closing and self-sealing, in case of emergency.
