Advantages of a Rolling Steel Door.

Is a rolling steel door the right choice for your facility? There are six main benefits that come with installing a steel door as opposed to an overhead sectional door or traditional commercial overhead door. The steel material and tactical design can set this door apart from others in these key areas.


  1. Durability.

Steel doors are valuable assets in an industrial facility that require the utmost durability in terms of building envelope characteristics. The durable structural angle guides and bottom bar of a rolling steel door can withstand detriment and be easily repaired. The rolling steel doors are also able to withstand heavy wind loads. The roll formed designs do not share this degree of durability and suffer more sustainable damages that are more difficult to repair.


  1. Security.

The rolling steel door is among the most secure option for a facility. The curtain slats are interlocked which makes the curtain practically impenetrable by human hands. The curtain can withstand heavy abuse due to rigid design; an ideal feature for high-security applications.


  1. Space Restrictions.

Rolling steel doors are ideal for small spaces where side room is limited. The design of the door is ideal for low headroom applications. The curtain rolls into a barrel rather than the traditional track system, this means that less space is required to complete installation.


  1. Ease of Operation.

The rolling steel doors are not only durable, they’re incredibly efficient. The doors can be operated with a chain hoist or motor, and have oil tempered torsion springs; designed for 50,000 cycles. These doors are consistent and run through cycles with dependable efficiency.


  1. Versatility.

The rolling steel doors are accommodating and can be customized for a variety of applications. A few of these applications include non-insulated curtain, insulated curtain, and a fire-rated curtain. You can also customize the coverage, the colours, the finish, and the method of operation.


  1. Sleek Design.

The rolling steel doors we install add a polished look to facilities. The galvanized finish needs no further painting and is accompanied by a rust-proof aluminum bar at its base. The door is decorated with a bolted barrel design that not only looks presentable, but provides ease of repair. The slats are available in grey prime and powder coat from 180 standard colours. The guides and bottom bars also come in a dark bronze finish with the option to add a powder coat.
