Roll Up Door Installation Atlanta

No one knows commercial garage door installation like the professionals at American Garage Doors and Openers. With manufacturers like Chamberlain, C.H.I., Amarr, Southern Ideal Door, Linear, LiftMaster, Genie, Craftsman, and Stanley, you can be sure that quality will never be an issue.

Finding the right garage doors for your business means analyzing what kinds of needs and specifications must be met at your workplace. For example, a small business that handles local deliveries might only require that their garage door system be reliable and secure so as to safely store a few vans at night. On the other hand, a more industrial-based facility that utilizes a fleet of large trucks which enter and exit the garage constantly will need a door that can handle more sophisticated demands.

The general types of commercial doors that our technicians install are

  • Rolling doors, which work great under stressful demands and are comprised of interlocking slats. These doors do not require much head, back, and side room to be installed.
  • Sectional doors, which are more traditional garage doors that can have decorative or functional windows, and can be insulated for locations where climate control is important.
  • Fire doors, which are specialized doors that utilize sensors and alarms when heat or smoke is present. Many commercial facilities require fire doors in order to ensure the safety of the employees.
  • Traffic doors, which are doors made of a high-strength, durable fabric. These doors can operate at fast speeds and require little to no maintenance to keep in top condition.

It’s important to analyze the nature of your business and make educated decisions based on those factors. Having a garage door that is more of a hassle than a convenience is unnecessary and stressful. This is especially the case if your commercial door requires constant repairs and maintenance, which is a sign that your door is simply not meeting your needs.

Things to consider when looking for commercial garage door installation include:

  • The size of your facility and how many garage doors you will need
  • The frequency of use these doors will experience
  • Required features of the doors and openers

Even garage doors must be held to certain standards when it comes to how business is conducted. Depending on the industry and location, you may require a garage door that is tightly sealed against inclement weather and will not allow moisture to pervade the area. Likewise, you may have a need for insulated doors to help regulate the temperature inside of the garage. Insulation, which comes in the form of polystyrene layers, is also a factor in the energy efficiency of your facility.

If your commercial garage door is going to be actively opening and closing day and night and put through a lot of abuse, you will need to receive professional installation of the most reliable products on the market. This way, you will not have to keep making service calls to your garage door company and you can save a substantial amount of money in the long run. High cycle springs, track upgrades, and the use of more heavy-duty hardware will help to keep your garage door running smoothly, no matter the weight of the door or how frequently it must be operated.

The width of your garage is another factor that must be considered when proceeding with garage door installation. Sectional doors are lighter and may work best for smaller garages, but openings that are over 16 feet wide would benefit more from the installation of rolling steel doors. To accurately figure out the size of your garage, follow the instructions below. This will help in your decision of what type of door would be best for the facility.

  • Measure the width of your garage door. You can do this by running a measuring tape horizontally from the point at which the door opening begins to the other side.
  • Measure the height of your door. Starting from the ground, run your measuring tape vertically until you reach where the open space ends.
  • If there is space between where the horizontal opening begins and the corner of your garage door, measure this area as well. This area will be on the front side of your garage right next to the opening. This is important because the tracks must be installed in this space, on either side of your door.
  • Measure the space between where the opening starts at the top, and where it meets either your ceiling or the lowest obstruction before your ceiling. Certain headroom requirements are needed for the installation of particular garage doors.
  • Take measurements of the depth of your garage by running the measuring tape from the front wall of your garage to the very back wall. Again, make sure to take into account if there are any obstructions. Garage doors may require a specific amount of backroom space to be installed correctly.
