Rolling Steel Doors or Sectional Doors: Which One's Better?

Posted by Wendell Daguno on Mar 9, 2014 10:16:00 PM

You just moved in to a new place and noticed that your garage door needed replacement.  You searched the internet for the best garage door provider in the area and a lot of companies appeared then realized that you also have the option to choose either a rolling door or a sectional door. But which one is better? A rolling garage door or a sectional garage door? Which among the providers is the best? This article will help you with your choices and enlighten you between the differences of a rolling door and a sectional door.

  Although they are sometimes considered to be interchangeable, there are dramatic differences between Rolling Steel doors and Sectional Doors. Some of these differences are based on materials, durability, installation and pricing. But before we come to a conclusion of which one’s the better option, let’s take a look at these differences.

 Rolling Steel Doors are metal slatted doors that roll up to store in coil above the opening. They are used to provide security against entry or weather protection at exterior and interior openings in industrial, commercial, institutional and other buildings. They are also called overhead coiling doors or service doors while Sectional garage doors are normally made from much lighter gauge materials. For example, the 24” tall panels are typically 24 gauge or nominal 24 gauge, where rolling steel curtains are made of individual 3” tall slats of 22 to 18 gauge material. The guides of a commercial sectional garage door are typically roll-formed 16 or 14 gauge, where rolling steel guides are typically made from 3/16” to 1/2” thick structural steel angles.

Rolling Steel DoorsRolling Steel Door

Heavy duty commercial/industrial grade Rolling Steel Doors are built to last the lifetime of the building with very little cost of maintenance, where sectional garage doors typically have a life expectancy of only a few years with significant maintenance cost.

  Sectional garage doors typically float up and overhead into the building while heavy duty Rolling Steel Door are mounted to the face of the wall and supported by the vertical wall and require no connection to the ceiling or roof structure. Sectional garage doors are typically mounted to the vertical face of the wall, but the horizontal track must be supported from the ceiling or roof structure. 

Sectional Steel DoorSectional Door

  And lastly, sectional doors may cost less than rolling steel doors but overtime, heavy duty rolling steel doors may save more as you will have to spend less service and maintenance on it.

                    

  In summary, rolling steel doors are of heavier duty and sustainable construction. Also, Rolling Steel Doors have mounting advantages that make them uniquely suitable for specific applications.

Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Jul 24, 2013 5:17:00 PM

Difference Between Insulated and Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

When you are shopping for commercial doors, the sheer number of choice can be a bit overwhelming. One of the options you may be drawn to are 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 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.

 

Sectional Doors

 

Insulated Sectional 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.

 
Secitonal Door

Non-Insulated Sectional Doors

While insulated doors are normally a preferred option. There are certain instances that you may choose one of these non-insulated 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.
