Commercial Sliding Doors / Cold Storage Doors

Authority Dock and Door Favicon

At Authority Dock & Door, we’re proud to supply business owners with an impressive collection of commercial doors.

Even though our products are backed by industry-leading durability, standing up to the icy-cold temperatures inside coolers, freezers, and cold storage areas is not what they are all intended for.

That’s why it’s essential to purchase top-notch cold storage overhead doors that can keep the cold air in and the warm air out.

What are Cold Storage Overhead Doors?

Traditional doors do not work for freezers and coolers because they lack the insulation needed to control the temperature inside your company’s space.

On the other hand, cold storage doors (or commercial sliding doors) are specifically equipped to meet this unique need. They provide easy access to your materials and products while keeping temperatures where they need to be.

Only some commercial or industrial companies have the same list of requirements. As a result, we are pleased to offer various door styles, including bi-part sliding doors, single sliding doors, and vertical rise overhead doors.

Understanding the Benefits of Cold Storage Doors

Plenty of industries depend on temperature-controlled rooms inside their warehouses and facilities. Therefore, maintaining certain working conditions, from food packaging centers to medical labs, is essential.

Not only are the cold storage overhead doors at Authority Dock & Door great for controlling internal temperatures, but they’re also an ideal way to improve the energy efficiency of your facility.

Cold storage doors are “temperature-maintaining” and can cut energy costs, helping the HVAC system in your facility perform better and reducing the risks of future problems and breakdowns.

Industries that Use Cold Storage Doors

Types of companies that use cold storage doors include:

Food and beverage industries: Commercial kitchens, grocery stores, and other food-related businesses store perishable items such as meats, dairy products, and produce.

Pharmaceutical and medical industries: Pharmacies, hospitals, and other medical facilities store temperature-sensitive medications and medical supplies.

Agricultural industries: Farms, dairies, and other agricultural businesses store crops and livestock feed.

Warehouse and distribution industries: Warehouses and distribution centers store temperature-sensitive products such as electronics, chemicals, and other items that require temperature control.

Hospitality industries: Hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality businesses use these doors to store food and drinks.


Cold storage doors are designed with insulation to keep the cold air in and the warm air out. Different industries, from food and beverage to pharmaceuticals, use cold storage doors to maintain working conditions and improve energy efficiency. Our collection includes bi-part sliding, single sliding, and vertical rise overhead doors. Purchasing a cold storage door allows companies to control internal temperatures and reduce energy costs.
