2. Your Door Keeps Needing Repair

When your doors aren't dependable and keep needing costly repair, it may be time to consider upgrading your overhead door for several reasons:

  • Rolling Steel Doors have enclosed parts, protected from environmental elements, contributing to sustainability.
  • Rolling Steel Doors have less parts than sectional doors, making them less vulnerable to damage.


With June being Garage Door Safety Month, declared by the International Door Association (IDA) and Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA), think about how a dependable door can make your daily operations safer for all involved.



3. Your Doors Take up Too Much Space

When your sectional doors start interfering with those emergency fire sprinklers, HVAC systems, or even your lighting, it's time to consider a more efficient solution. A rolling door that coils up optimizes space around your building, makes room for safer operations too.

4. Your Doors Aren't Energy Efficient

Are you spending too much on utilities? Rolling Doors are the primary solution for climate controlled commercial and industrial environments. When equipped with foam-in-place, polyurethane insulation, the insulation is sprayed between slats and expands to eliminate any air pockets. This captures flexibility that adds yet another layer of strength to your door. With rolling doors, you can achieve all the benefits that go hand-in-hand with a slatted and coiling design, while also capturing supreme thermal efficiency (And saving money on utilities!).
