What is a High-Performance Door?
At Overhead Door Co. of Central Jersey, we define a high-performance door as a door that has features above and beyond the standard coiling, sectional or sliding door. Most common high-performance doors are defined as high-speed doors and this is valid, however, there are other types of high-performance doors.
High-Performance Industrial Doors
So with this in mind, what makes a door High-Performance? Speed certainly, and with the Rapid Slat and Rapid Grill from Overhead Door Corporation, Dynaco's full lines of fabric high-speed doors, Hormann-Flexon's high-speed coiling doors and Overhead Door Corporation's Jet-Slide doors we certainly have the high-speed feature covered. Some of these doors travel as fast as 72” per second!
But what else defines a High-Performance door? What about Insulation values? Overhead Door Corporation answers with the Thermacore™ Sectional and Coiling Insulated Doors such as AP850 Sectional and Stormtite™ AP627 Coiling Insulated doors. The AP850 provides an incredibly high R-value of 26! The AP627 Coiling door has an impressive R-value of 10.9. Both doors are at the very top of their classes in performance where maintaining temperature is critical.
High-Performance Parking Garage Door
What about the ability to absorb an impact? Overhead Door Corporation's answer to hitting your door is the Knock-N-Lock breakaway bottom section, for sectional doors. Dynaco has high-speed fabric doors that will zip back into their tracks without the use of tools.
Have a need for speed, but no room for a coiling door? AND you want excellent insulation as well? The Overhead Door Corporation Jet-Slide doors are the perfect answer for high usage parking garages, without springs and very low overhead clearance. Bi-parting doors can clear an opening extremely fast, preventing back-ups and also keeping the warm air in and the freezing cold out. This is very important in high-end, heated parking garages.
We have doors for clean rooms and explosion-proof areas. We have doors rated to withstand hurricane-force winds. We have doors tested to run hundreds of thousands of cycles.
