Types of Commercial & Industrial Overhead Doors:

1. Sectional Doors (Insulated & Non-Insulated):

Sectional overhead doors are typically constructed from galvanized steel panels with internal insulation to provide thermal isolation and sound reduction. Customers can select from a variety of metal gauges, panel profiles, track styles, hardware and glazing. Some applications require heavy-duty doors to resist the elements – rain, wind, dampness and temperature extremes.

For example, the Model 418 uses 16-gauge flush galvanized steel panels that are 2 inches thick and provide an R-value of 7.35, ideal for thermal protection. The Model 422 doors are similar but come with a 20-gauge ribbed steel exterior, perfect for protection against the elements.

Our Thermacore® Collection provides extra insulation and resistance to high wind loads. The Advanced Performance Model 850 boasts of 3-inch-thick panels and an R-value of 26 for the most demanding applications.

2. Aluminum Glass Overhead Doors

These are aluminum sectional doors with glass panels. They are typically used in architectural situations that demand light transmission and visual access. Commercial and industrial customers can choose from a nice variety of glazing materials, stile widths, finish options and track styles. For example, the sleek, attractive Model 511 can be ordered in sizes exceeding 16 feet in width and height, with a narrow center stile width and myriad choices for glazing, finishes, top/bottom stile widths and special customization options.

3. Rolling Service Doors (Insulated & Non-Insulated)

Rolling service doors (also known as roll-up doors and coiling doors) are typically constructed from interlocking flat or curved slats of galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum that coil around a drum to open and close. These doors are just the ticket when space is tight. The Storm-tite™ Advanced Performance Model 627 rolling steel door provides thermal protection (R-value of 10.9), low sound transmission, weather/wind protection and special security features. The standard finish is available in gray, brown, tan or white, or you can opt for any of over 200 available PowderGuard Finish colors.
