Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands/NYC is proud to be a dealer.  You can count on us to repair Cornell metal slats, perform a fire shutter drop test, or replace an aluminum grille curtain part.  We have the service crews available for regular interval planned maintenance and emergency service.

Metal roll up gates and rolling steel doors manufactured by Cornell Iron Works are made of all kinds of materials like stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum.  Cornell offers excellent color options for your metal slat sections.  We can match and replace those slat sections with parts that are OEM (original equipment manufacturer).  Perhaps your Cornell roll down door has a spring tension issue therefore making manual hand operation very difficult.  You can call us to perform a routine service to bring the roller door shutter system back to optimal function.

We can repair and replace your Cornell Door operators and motors too.  Cornell has specific UL rated operator systems designed to work with their fire door systems.   We can diagnose photo eye and sensing edge problems that happen often with high traffic door openings.
