When you turn to us at Overland Door Company of the The Meadowlands & NYC to discuss your need for roll down gates and doors, you’ll find a number of affordable options. For many of our customers, our stainless steel roll down gates are a popular choice.

Striking the Right Balance

The process of selecting the right roll down gate involves balancing a number of factors. These include:

  • Frequency of use
  • Durability
  • Price
  • Appearance
  • Environmental factors
  • Weight

The stainless steel roll down gate is often a wise choice because of its ability to provide the ideal solution to many of these needs. While security is always a primary concern, the stainless steel gate provides a number of other advantages.


The superiority of stainless steel over many other metals is shown by its wide use in everything from medical to scientific to culinary uses. These characteristics that make stainless steel an ideal choice for your roll down gates include:

  • Exceptional life cycle. The durability and low maintenance of stainless steel roll down gates make them one of the most affordable choices over any long-term use.
  • Appearance. The aesthetic appeal of stainless steel is one of its most desirable features. It stays attractive over a longer period with minimal care and upkeep
  • Wide temperature range. Largely unaffected by wide ranges in temperature, there are grades of stainless steel that resist scaling and retain their strength at extremes of heat and cold.
  • Resistance to rust and corrosion. You can select a grade of stainless steel to fit your specific environmental concerns. While this metal naturally resists corrosion, you can specify resistance to acids, chorine, and alkaline solutions, even in extremes of pressure and temperature.
  • Sanitation and Hygiene. Of course, a primary factor in selecting stainless steel is the ability to ensure high levels of cleanliness where needed, especially in food, specialty manufacturing, and medical facilities.

When all the factors are considered, you’ll find stainless steel roll down gates are a practical and efficient choice for your rolling gate and door needs.

Advantages of Stainless Steel Rolling Doors

Posted by Wilford Ordoñez on Jul 3, 2014 1:57:00 AM

You have probably already determined that a rolling up door or other style of rolling door is the safest and most convenient option for your storage or shipment facility. However, did you realize that there is a big difference from one door to another? Stainless steel doors are particularly attractive for many firms—but why? Consider these three big reasons.

  • The Name Says It All – “Stainless” Steel is just that—highly stain and rust resistant. This means that your door will look good and retain its strength even after years of exposure to the elements and heavy use. Stainless steel requires very little maintenance when compared to other roll down door options.
  • High Strength to Weight Ratio - When constructing a secure door, you want a material that is strong and will stand up to wear, tear and even abuse. However, often the strongest materials tend to be very heavy. Stainless steel is relatively light considering the strength that it brings to your project.
  • Recyclable – Being “green” is very important. Much of the stainless steel on the market today is partially made from recycled materials. Additionally, when the time does come to replace your door, you will be able to recycle the door and avoid putting it into the landfill.

If you would like to learn more about stainless steel doors or other options such as a coiling door, metal slat door or roll lift door, let us help. The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC knows doors like no one else! Call or contact us today for more information.
