One thing all businesses have in common: they need to get maximum durability, reliability and value from their equipment, despite years of hard use. Garage doors are an excellent example: businesses expect them to take a beating and work flawlessly for many years, and are willing to periodically inspect and service them in order to keep them working at peak efficiency. Overhead Door offers a variety of commercial and industrial doors that meet the safety and performance requirements of the most demanding businesses. Whether the doors are steel, aluminum/glass, rolling or sectional, insulated or not, Overhead Door has the industry-leading solutions at the most competitive prices. In Part 1, we'll look at sectional and insulated doors, and then move on to aluminum/glass doors, rolling steel doors and advanced service doors in Part 2.

Sectional Steel Doors

No two businesses are identical, which is why Overhead Door offers a large variety of gauges, hardware, track styles and panel profiles in their sectional steel doors. Businesses can choose the options that are perfect for them, including:

  • Panel Gauges: Available in 16-, 20- and 24-gauge steel door panels, all providing dependability from solid construction
  • Sizes: Standard doors can be ordered up to 32'2" wide and 24'1" high. Many door series can be built to larger sizes with special engineering.
  • Track: The track and hardware material is heavy-duty, made from high-quality galvanized steel
  • Environmental: Standard insulated doors provide an R-value up to 7.35, and flexible PVC bottom weather seal protects against temperature, air and water penetration while accommodating uneven floors.
  • Durability: The factory-applied, baked-on polyester paint produces a finish that protects against the elements for many years.
  • Options: Businesses can choose glazing materials in full sections or individual panels, extra-long-life springs, reinforcing steel strutting, and electric or chain hoist operation.
