Overhead Door's Mullion System: MetLife Stadium Case

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Aug 5, 2020 5:57:50 PM

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. 

This video shows you how the installed Mullion System works:

This door is a simple, streamlined solution that opens up a number of possibilities for Metlife Stadium--including making it easier to bring in the sets and supplies needed for an event as large as the 2014 Super Bowl.

Added Protection of Insulated Rolling Steel Guides

Posted by Jai Patel on Jun 23, 2014 8:34:00 PM

 

Your insulated rolling steel door has many important parts. These all come together to help the door work as it should, allow for easy access to your loading dock or garage area and protect against fluctuating outdoor temperatures. However, one part you may not think about are the insulated rolling steel guides.

What Do Insulated Rolling Steel Guides Do?

If your door does not have insulated guides, it is much easier for wind to get into your indoor space as well as for the air that you keep cool or warm per your specifications to escape. The simple addition of insulated rolling steel guides can greatly reduce the amount you spend on utilities each month. Plus, adding insulated rolling steel guides can often make the operation of the door a bit quieter—which can be vitally important in some particular situations.

How Does Installation Work?

Installing insulated rolling steel guides is a job that requires expert attention to detail. If the right guides are not chosen and properly installed, the door will never function as it should. An overhead door expert should come to your place of business, check out the door you want to upgrade and work with you to decide the best course of action. After the guides are installed, you will not notice a difference in the operation of the door—it will still open and close just as quickly and accurately as it ever did.

If you have any further questions about insulated rolling steel guides or any other aspect of your rolling steel door, do not hesitate to contact us at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC. Our team of garage and overhead door experts is always happy to help you with repairing or improving your current doors or making the decision about when the time is right to replace your door with something new.

Benefits of Installing a High-Speed Door

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jan 31, 2014 1:01:00 PM

Benefits of Installing a High-Speed Door

Your service doors are some of the most used and most underappreciated pieces of equipment in your facility. Every business has different needs and expectations when it comes to service doors, parking garage doors or other types of overhead doors. Some businesses need a door that fits in with a particular architectural style, some companies value security and still others require a temperature-resistant overhead door. However, another important need is the need for speed.

A high-speed door is a great investment for many facilities. Faster opening and closing times on high-speed doors can make a facility more secure, reduce heating or cooling loss and prevent airflow, which can damage certain merchandise. In addition, when you are not stuck waiting for a slow door to open and close, you save time that you can use for other more important tasks around your property. 

Two of the available high-speed door types include Rytec Spiral Doors and RapidSlat Advanced Service. The Rytec Spiral Doors line of doors offers the perfect balance between speed and style. On the other hand, the RapidSlat door boasts that it combines the speed of a high performance door with the durability of a traditional rolling steel door. While they have different designs, the end application is the same. Choosing the right service door for your structure is a big decision, but a high-speed door can be the ideal solution in many cases. 

When it comes to all your door needs, you are never alone. If you have any further questions on high-speed doors or other types of service doors and accessories, call The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC. One of our experts will be happy to discuss your needs and help you choose the right solution for your business.
