Commercial Doors: Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors (Shutter Doors)

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Oct 20, 2021 3:01:00 PM

Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

There are so many options when it comes to commercial doors. Depending on the area you are securing, separating, or monitoring access to, you may want a particular type. However, when it comes down to it, we sell two main types here at The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands and New York City, sectional doors and rolling doors. Within those two types, you will find several different subtypes.

Learn more about commercial sectional doors and commercial rolling doors, as well as the subtypes we offer, so you have a better idea of what type of door you need for your particular commercial need.

1. Commercial Sectional Doors

Sectional doors are created with convenience in mind. These doors work with a controller that can make opening and closing them a breeze. With options like Thermacore®, sectional doors are a great choice for spaces that need temperature control. Today’s sectional doors are well constructed for reliable use and minimal maintenance is required. Some of the more popular types of commercial sectional doors available at The Overhead Door Company include the following:

1.1 Advanced Sectional Doors:

For advanced performance, many industrial and commercial buildings need a simple, well-rounded sectional door. The advanced sectional doors at The Overhead Door Company offer climate control, ease of use and durability. While useful in a number of situations, these are a great choice for industrial and commercial applications.

Aluminum glass doors offer a sense of architectural style while still providing protection and the ability to easily open and close your commercial door. This is a good choice for buildings where it is important to make a good impression.

2. Commercial Rolling Doors | Roller Shutters | Coiling Doors

Rolling doors, also known as rolling shutters and coiling doors, are created to protect the contents within an establishment. These doors are easy to secure and allow you to protect the interior of your commercial structure. Certain styles are used within buildings, to separate sections of a building into individual areas.


2.1 Advanced Service Doors
 

When service and security are important, one of these advanced service doors is the perfect solution. They offer fast open and close cycles that are in line with a sectional door; however, you get the increased security of a rolling door.

   2.2 Rolling Steel Doors
 
A standard rolling steel door (also known as service door, coiling door, or roll-up door) is the go-to option for loading docks at warehouses, factories, and storage facilities. It offers great security at a great price.

2.3 Fire Rated Doors & Fire-Rated Counter Doors

In certain buildings, such as schools and hospitals, a fire-rated door is a necessity—both for safety and to meet the regulations of the city or county. These fire-rated doors offer many of the same options of our standard service doors with the added fire rating.

2.4 Counter Doors

Also known as counter shutters help protect your space while the counter is closed for the day. Some applications are snack bars, service counters, or ticketing areas, food courts, and many more. A counter door is a perfect solution—you can find many of the same features as are available in normal service doors.

2.5 Security Grilles

Security grilles allow line of sight into a specific area but still provide security and protection. These are often used in shopping malls, airports, and similar spaces where it is necessary to close down certain areas while leaving the main walkway open.

2.6 Rolling Steel Doors with Man Door (Pass-Through Doors)

A rolling steel door with a man door (pass-through door) is the go-to option that offers both, security and convenience.

The Doors of New Orleans | Beautiful Architecture

Posted by Jai Patel on Dec 12, 2015 1:54:53 PM


New Orleans is not only a city with lots of food, art and culture but it's also a city with lots of diverse architecture and doors.

On a recent family trip to New Orleans I saw great examples of what doormen and women do in another tourist city.  I have found learning what is done in other cities helps me support customers in the metro NYC and NJ area.  Check out my photos of New Orleans!

Protect Your Premises With a Fire Door

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jun 29, 2013 2:25:00 PM

Fire-Rated Doors

Depending on the needs of your company, regular commercial doors may not provide the safety you need. If you work in an environment where you are worried about fire, one of the fire doors available here at Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC may be the perfect solution.

Fire Rated Door

Types of Doors

Fire doors come in many different styles. For instance, we carry fire-rated counter doors that are ideal for use in areas where you only need a door to reach from the ceiling to the counter. Another popular option is fire-rated insulated rolling service doors. These allow you to maintain a consistent temperature inside your building, provide security and have that protection against fire. For a finished look, the integral frame & sill fire counter doors are another option.

How a Fire Door Protects You

So, why do you need a fire door? A fire door is designed to slow the spread of both, smoke and fire, from one part of your building to another. This can give you occupants of the building a chance to escape, and may also protect valuable equipment or merchandise from damage during a small fire. A fire door is superior to a standard door in protecting because it is made of multiple layers and is both, self-closing and self-sealing, in case of emergency.
