Parts of a Rolling Grille Mesh Gate

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Tue, Sep 08, 2015 @ 08:55 AM
Modern steel rolling doors are one of a long list of technological marvels we simply take for granted. Years of research, practical applications of technology, and field experience have produced a wide range of rolling steel doors to meet just about any application one can imagine. In fact, multiple varieties of steel and other materials such as aluminum add to the versatility and functionality of these highly efficient rolling doors.

More than a Simple Door


Part of the complexity of these rolling grille mesh gates or doors is demonstrated by the many options and parts that go into a custom designed, manufactured and installed door. Just a sampling of these options include:

  • Form of operation – manual, chain, crank or electric motor
  • Curtain material and finish – galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum milled or anodized
  • Curtain inserts – glass, polycarbonate, aluminum, perforated steel
  • Emergency egress – manual or automatic
  • Locking process – slide bolts, chain lock, security rods, interlocks
  • Frame width and type – standard, wide or mount
  • Track material

Of course, the chosen door will be sized to fit the needed size, up to a maximum of 12 feet. Likewise, the door can roll up to an overhead position or to either side of the opening.

Putting the Parts Together to Meet Your Needs



While the above details some of the many components of a finished rolling steel door, they actually allow you to also select from a range of completed closures for any application. These include:
