Posted by Jai Patel on Sat, Jan 16, 2016 @ 03:26 PM

Non-insulated Metal Slat Overhead Rolling Doors

Constructed of galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum in a variety of slat profiles, finishes and options.
•Standard doors are designed to meet 20psf (90mph to 110mph) wind resistance.
•Higher windload and seismic validation available.
•Perimeters’ sealing are designed to reduce air leakage and keep climate controlled air in and the elements out.
•Extra heavy-duty slats fabricated of galvanized steel in up to 14 gauge with a curved profile
•Designed but not limited to oversized applications where herculean size and strength are required.

Insulated Metal Slat Overhead Rolling Doors

Insulated rolling service doors are used when durability, security, overall performance and thermal efficiency are required.
•Standard door is designed for 20psf (90mph to 110mph) wind resistance.
•Perimeters’ sealing are designed to reduce air leakage and keep climate controlled air in and the elements out.
•Roll-formed flat slats sandwich CFC and HCFC free polyurethane insulation to provide extra protection against the elements with R-values up to 10.9, U-Factor of no higher than 1.00, through curtain STC up to 28, and install STC up to 21.
•Weatherseals reduce the number of air exchanges between two climate/temperature controlled environments through a fenestration assembly, such as door or window. When it comes to perimeter sealing more is found to be better.
•When selecting an insulated door, it is important to review IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) requirements.
•Calculated R-value (also known as U-value) is an ASHRAE calculation of thermal resistance property of a material.
•Tested U-factor provides actual installed door energy transfer resistance and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). Energy transfer is the exchange of energy between two climate controlled environments. Solar heat gain coefficient is the amount of solar heat being absorbed by the door system. Generally, finish or color with high solar reflectance (bright colors) will provide lower solar heat gain coefficient and therefore lower U-factor. Lower tested U-factor provides lower energy transfer and lower solar heat gain.

Advantages of Stainless Steel Rolling Doors

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Thu, Jul 03, 2014 @ 01:57 AM

You have probably already determined that a rolling up door or other style of rolling door is the safest and most convenient option for your storage or shipment facility. However, did you realize that there is a big difference from one door to another? Stainless steel doors are particularly attractive for many firms—but why? Consider these three big reasons.

  • The Name Says It All – “Stainless” Steel is just that—highly stain and rust resistant. This means that your door will look good and retain its strength even after years of exposure to the elements and heavy use. Stainless steel requires very little maintenance when compared to other roll down door options.
  • High Strength to Weight Ratio - When constructing a secure door, you want a material that is strong and will stand up to wear, tear and even abuse. However, often the strongest materials tend to be very heavy. Stainless steel is relatively light considering the strength that it brings to your project.
  • Recyclable – Being “green” is very important. Much of the stainless steel on the market today is partially made from recycled materials. Additionally, when the time does come to replace your door, you will be able to recycle the door and avoid putting it into the landfill.

If you would like to learn more about stainless steel doors or other options such as a coiling door, metal slat door or roll lift door, let us help. The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC knows doors like no one else! Call or contact us today for more information.
