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 my architects, developers and owners in the metro NYC and NJ area.  Check out my photos of New Orleans!

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jan 4, 2014 6:54:00 PM

RapidGrille Model 676 

The Advanced Performance Security Grille offers excellent performance for commercial and industrial customers who have been searching for something sturdy, safe, high quality and low maintenance.

Every client's security grille needs are different, but this new product developed by Overhead Door can be useful for a wide variety of business, including parking garages, loading docks, performance venues, manufacturing facilities or retail businesses -- basically anywhere that a client needs to make a location secure but also wants a grilled that's safe yet simple, and easy to minimize when it's not needed.

RapidGrille Model 676

Some of the state-of-the-art features of the new product include:

  • A spring-less design which can minimize the need for routine maintenance. Wear and tear from regular openings and closings can be commonly seen with spring-loaded grilles.
  • Exceptional safety features that include a built-in stop brake that prevents uncontrolled travel plus several sets of sensors plus a reverse motor, which can all prevent damage and entrapment.
  • A 2-year limited warranty on door components and a 5-year limited warranty on the motor.
  • High-quality construction which includes high-strength links, galvanized solid-steel rods, plus aluminum links and spacer tubes.
  • A high-cycle drive and gear system that's always smooth and doesn't jerk or jolt while the grille is in operation or when it begins or ends its cycle.

RapidGrille Model 676 customers can choose a straight lattice pattern or optional brick pattern, and can also select a complete steel curtain; a powder-coated curtain; or a grille which contains aluminum links and spacer tubes.

Grille controls and operation details can be found right at your fingertips, in the form of an interactive panel that displays info about the opening and closing cycle, a closing timer, plus any helpful system diagnostics.

Foeng Tjong, Overhead Door's commercial product manager for rolling products, said the Model 676 has been engineered to perform at high levels over long periods of time.

Rytec Spiral High-Speed Parking Garage Door

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Aug 17, 2013 4:33:00 PM

Rytec Spiral High-Speed Parking Garage Door

High traffic situations call for a high-speed door. However, to obtain that high speed, you do not want to sacrifice security or good looks. Luckily, the Rytec Spiral high-speed commercial garage door can easily meet all your needs at a price that is comparable with other high-speed rolling steel doors.

Rytec Spiral high-speed door

This door offers and opening speed as high as 60 inches each second. This is a must in high-traffic areas, such as when you require an overhead door for a parking garage or other area. However, the speed is variable and you can program the opening and closing speed independent of each other to optimize traffic flow. Few doors offer this type of flexibility, let alone with the ability to reach these high speeds.

The Rytec Spiral garage door is one of the most secure and durable. The opening mechanism has no metal to metal contact. The rollers in the track offer a whisper quiet opening, making this door a great option in spaces where a loud, clanging opening would be a burden. As far as durability, the reinforced hinges, durable membrane and high-quality seals offer 100% protection against dust, pollution and drafts. The anodized aluminum will not corrode—offering you a door that will look great for years to come in even the worst weather conditions. As an added benefit, the motion control and programmed opening width can provide energy savings too.

Finally, the good looks of this commercial garage door sets it apart from other similar doors. The crisp lines, modular construction and good looks will be perfect in many situations. When you need this or any other commercial overhead doors, call The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC and let us discuss the options you have available for you.

Commercial Doors: Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jul 19, 2013 6:33:00 PM

Sectional Doors VS Rolling Doors

dilema

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 what type of door you need for your particular commercial need.

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 required. Some of the more popular types of commercial sectional doors available at The Overhead Door Company include the following:

  • 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 commercial garages.
  • Thermacore Doors – For industries that need the upmost in thermal efficiency, the Thermacore door is a perfect solution. These thick doors keep temperatures at a steady level, saving you money over time.
  • Sectional Steel Doors – For one of the best combinations of heavy-duty workmanship and convenience, sectional steel doors are a great solution. You often find these doors on fire stations, commercial garages and retail establishments.
  • Aluminum Doors – Aluminum 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.
Sectional Doors

 

Commercial Rolling Doors

Rolling doors, also known as rolling shutters, 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.

  • Advanced Service Doors – When service AND security are important, one of these advanced service doors is the perfect solution. They offer the fast open and close cycles that are in line with a sectional door; however, you get the increased security of a rolling door.
  • Rolling Steel Doors – A standard rolling steel door is the go-to option for loading docks at warehouses, factories and storage facilities. It offers great security at a great price.
  • Fire Rated 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.
  • Counter Doors (Counter Shutters) - When you have a service counter, such as at a snack bar, service counter or ticketing area, you need a way to protect the space when the counter is closed for the day. A counter door is the perfect solution—you can find many of the same features as are available in normal service doors.
  • 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.
Rolling Doors

As you can see, there are a number of options when it comes to commercial doors. Taking the time to understand the types of available doors will make it easier to decide on which type is best for your particular structure.
