Type and Material
Depending on your business type, you might be better off with a particular type of garage door or another. The most common doors used for commercial garages are sectional and roller doors. There are several kinds of roller doors used for commercial purposes, including service or counter doors, as well as security grilles. Service doors can be found in hospitals and fire stations, for instance, while counter doors are used in smaller spaces, such as repair shops or concession stands. Retractable security grilles also fall in the category of roller doors and can be seen in schools, shops, or storage units.
The preferred material for commercial garage doors is steel because it is an enduring material that can adjust to high traffic conditions and resist well in case of potential impacts. The steel used for sectional or roller doors can be thinner or thicker, according to your needs. For example, if you want increased protection, you can go for heavy-gauge steel. Aluminum is also a popular material for commercial garage doors because of its aspect and properties: it can serve well the purpose of creating a transition between spaces or partitioning a facility, such as a warehouse or a restaurant.
