Overhead Door's Mullion System: MetLife Stadium Case

Overhead Door's Mullion System:
MetLife Stadium Case

The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC has had the honor of working on several interesting, yet challenging projects. One of the more unique locations is the home of our two hometown NFL teams--the Giants & Jets. MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, is an impressive structure that not only serves as a football stadium, but is also used for concerts and other events.

There was one major problem with the stadium, however. It had no opening that was large enough to allow Monster trucks to drive into the facility. Monster truck rallies are huge events that attract big crowds, so being able to utilize the stadium for this purpose is a big deal! Luckily, those in charge decided to call us and see if we could help solve this problem.

Monster Truck

Previously, there was a situation where the current doors were neither tall enough or wide enough to drive these massive vehicles into the stadium. Since the rallies are infrequent events, it was not possible to simply take out the adjacent doors, and no "out-of-the-box" solution was available.

Some creativity was needed in creating a custom solution for this situation. Essentially, we removed the two rolling doors that already existed and instead installed two individual 8' x 14' RSX rolling steel 625 series doors. In addition to the doors themselves, we installed an intermediate mullion. If both doors are placed in the up position, the mullion can be disengaged and rolled away to create the 16' x 14 opening needed for those large monster trucks.

While this was a custom solution, it was completed using Overhead Door Company parts. The only parts we fabricated ourselves were the steel floor plates to perfectly engage the cane bolts of the mullion. The powers-that-be at the stadium were very happy with the overhead door we created and we have since used this in other situations.
