Have you ever noticed how slim and compact a roll up door can be? Their innovative design allows the drum/axle assembly to remain enclosed inside of a barrel. When it's time to open the door, the corrugated curtain conveniently rolls up to store in a coil above the door's opening. Not only does this design protect important components from dust, debris and environmental hazards which could lead to costly damage, but it also contributes to the easy installation and low maintenance of a roll-up door.

No matter the position of your roll-up door, opened or closed, they remain low profile and give you back the space that's yours! That's ceiling space for additional lighting, HVAC components, emergency fire sprinklers and even additional storage. If you're already low on ceiling space, not a problem! That's what makes roll-up doors so compatible for buildings with little headroom.


Did you know some overhead doors have over 40 exposed parts that have to be lubricated and well maintained on a routinely basis? That's a lot of work! Not to mention, regular maintenance can get costly. By enclosing parts inside the barrel, your door is durable and stays protected from harm, making roll-up doors less vulnerable to damage. When components such as springs aren't enclosed and protected, they can easily degrade and break which can cause serious injuries and damage.
