Sectional Overhead Doors are made up of a series of panels (sections) that are connected together and roll up or down when the door is opened or closed. When in the open position, the door lays flat against the ceiling out of the way, which saves space over traditional doors that open inward or outward. They are usually mounted to the vertical face of the building or wall, and the door tracks are supported from the ceiling or roof of the building.
These commercial overhead doors help to control the entry of flying insects, birds, and other airborne contaminants, as well as help maintain a consistent temperature inside the building, which helps improve your work environment and save on energy costs.
Insulated or Non-Insulated
They are available in both insulated or non-insulated styles. Insulated overhead doors are thicker, stronger, and more durable than non-insulated styles. They are commonly constructed of two layers of steel with polyurethane in between, to provide increased temperature control. This makes the doors more energy-efficient, however, they cost more than single-layer non-insulated doors.
Sectional overhead doors come in a variety of types, in addition to choosing insulated or non-insulated, you can choose with or without windows and even glass pained for a more aesthetically pleasing look. They come in a wide range of sizes, and design & feature options, to fit your specific needs.
