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:

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.

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.

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.

Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jun 16, 2019 11:01:00 AM

When you are shopping for commercial doors, the sheer number of choices can be a bit overwhelming. One of the options you may be drawn to is sectional doors. However, even within this industrial door category, you are left with a couple of options. Should you choose an insulated or non-insulated sectional door? Learn more about the two different options and determine which will be the best option for your loading dock, storage area or other commercial door needs.

Insulated Sectional Doors

(Advanced Sectional Doors • Thermacore® Doors • Insulated Sectional Steel Doors)

Insulated sectional steel doors are ideal for any business that requires temperature control. This would include facilities such as warehouses, cold storage units, firehouses, restaurants and even municipal buildings. These commercial overhead doors can work to keep cold air out too. This is ideal in the cold New Jersey Winters! Finally, there are other benefits to using an insulated door too. They are generally quieter and sturdier than the non-insulated types.

Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

(Aluminum Glass DoorsNon-Insulated Sectional Steel Doors)

While commercial insulated doors are normally a preferred option. There are certain instances that you may choose one of these non-insulated commercial doors. The up-front cost is often less; however, this may be reduced by the increased energy bills that occur when you have non-insulated doors. The most important thing is to make the right choice for your particular business.

Rolling Steel Door and Sectional Door Combo System

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Mar 16, 2016 6:20:17 PM

Many times, customers want the beauty and full vision aluminum doors during the day but prefer more security during closed hours.  David Stark Studios in Industry City, Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY opted for a Aluminum 521 Series Sectional Door (motorized) mounted on the interior with an insulated Rolling Steel Fire Rated 635 Series Door on the exterior.  See below for photos.

Here is a project by our friends at Overhead Door Company of South Central Texas.  This is the Victoria Fire Station #6.  This rolling steel door was used on the exterior to give a greater windload than the standard full vision aluminum glass gararge door.  The rolling steel door only is closed during wind events.

Aluminum Glass Doors at Dune Studios - Success Story

Everyone knows that aluminum glass sectional doors are a functional way to secure your building, and allow easy entry or loading/unloading of large items or even vehicles. However, if you are looking for form as well as function, take a page from the books of Dune Studios.

The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & New York City had the pleasure of working with Dune Studios recently on a large renovation project. Dune Studios is a full-service studio offering photoshoots, equipment rental, and other related services. Because of this, the company does need to portray sophistication in every aspect of its facility.

Our team of experts helped them choose the right commercial doors for their studio that would allow for ease-of-use, but at the same time would bring to mind the modern, sophisticated look that the rest of the facility demonstrated. 

They selected an aluminum glass door that perfectly matched the rest of the studio, and makes the perfect backdrop to the type of high-fashion photoshoots that Dune Studios is known for in the industry.
