Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Mar 17, 2022 11:21:00 AM

When it comes to keeping your business secure, there are many things to consider. Here at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC, we have tons of options for all areas of your store, warehouse, or office. Rolling doors are a great choice for loading docks, but did you know there is another type of rolling door available? Rolling doors that are built for counter service are called counter doors or counter shutters. Any type of business that has a counter operation struggles with how to keep equipment and stock safe during non-business hours. Rolling counter doors are a great solution.

These types of security doors allow you to operate with no worry. The door rolls out of the way during business hours but slides down to give you the security you need when you are not around.

Counter security grilles are another option. They give the same security but do allow you to see into the “behind the counter” area while they are closed. This can be a great way to build desire among passersby, especially if you have a business with interesting stock.

The safety of your counter-based business is only as good as the door you use. Check out the options for service counter doors we have at The Overhead Door Company. The security counter doors will allow you to get into and out of the business easily but protect your investment.

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

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.

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.

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.

Fire Safety in Your Premises | NYC & NJ Area | Since 1981

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Apr 9, 2020 8:30:17 AM

Fire Safety at Your Premises

Every year people die or are seriously injured as a result of fires in non-domestic properties. In many cases, businesses are not able to recover from the effects of fire as, besides the human risk, fire can cost millions of dollars due to property damage, products loss, fines, compensations and insurance premiums.

Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees by taking the right measures to prevent fires and reduce the risks in their premises.

The following Fire Risk Assessment will let you identify a specific range of protective measures that are appropriate for your premises.

  1. Identify the fire hazards
  2. Identify the people at risk
  3. Evaluate, remove, reduce and protect against fire risk
  4. Create an exit route and an emergency plan.
  5. Create a fire prevention plan, instruct, inform and train

Several passive fire protection measures may be necessary to limit and control the spread of the smoke or the spread of the fire. The following are some of the measures that need to be considered:
