1. Door operation? You have options when it comes to how to operate your door. You can choose to run it manually, but it can get tedious for you and your employees. Plus all that opening and closing by hand could potentially cause injuries to back, shoulders, or arms. If you opt for an automatic door, make sure the opener you select takes into consideration the door’s weight and is durable enough to be used frequently every day.
2. Features? When selecting your door, you might want to include some windows for easy viewing, while other applications may not warrant this selection. Doors can also be made entirely of glass panels too, like the kind normally seen at car dealerships. Insulation is also something that should be considered, especially when taking into account harsh Canadian winters. Insulated doors will help block out the cold and keep work areas warmer in between open and closing the doors.
3. Security? Security is just as much a concern with homeowners as it is with business owners. You want to make sure the door has the right security features to prevent unwanted access to your business and inventories.
4. Track configuration? With commercial garage doors, you can have them open on a track, similar to residential doors where they curve horizontally above a work area. Another option, which many businesses use are vertically opening doors. In this type of setup, the door moves upward on the door tracks and does not enter any other work spaces.
To properly evaluate the needs of a customer who has a commercial, agricultural or industrial building, it needs a team of professional technicians who thoroughly understand the situation and who have the technical knowledge to carry it out. To do this, it also needs seasoned, qualified installers who have already this type of door, sometimes in situations even more complicated. In addition, they must have the necessary equipment at their disposal, such as scissor lifts, so that the door system can be installed safely. Don’t hesitate to ask any garage door specialist that you contact for a list of completed projects.
