4 Common Types of Commercial Garage Doors

If you’re looking to install a commercial garage door, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The first step is knowing what the door’s primary function will be in order to determine what features you might need. Will the door be used for storing vehicles, or loading and unloading equipment?

You can find commercial garage doors in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials so working with a group of experts, like those from Affina Door Company, can help you determine the best options for your needs. Read on to learn more about the different types of commercial doors available.

Overhead doors

Overhead doors are one of the most popular types of commercial doors. They’re lifted by a track or rail and can either be operated manually or with a remote control. They’re made with a wide range of materials like aluminum, wood, and more. 

Roll-up doors

Roll up doors are attached to a wall and led by guides until it’s fully rolled up into a single coil. The slats are much thinner than on an overhead door which allows for more flexibility. These doors are good when  you can’t install rails overhead. 

Fire rated doors

Fire rated doors are made from durable stainless steel that’s fire resistant, noise resistant, and is insulated. While they work similar to roll-up garage doors, they provide greater protection. They can also be custom built and come with an auto closing feature if a fire is detected.

Scissor gates

Unlike the other garage doors, scissor gate doors move from left to right like a sliding door. You can also find them made with high-quality steel. These types of gates work well in conjunction with the other commercial garage doors for extra protection.
