One of the main features that architect and building owners specify our commercial roll up doors is due to their increased security and durability. With individual interlocking steel slats, overhead coiling doors are extremely hard to penetrate compared to a sectional door that has 24” sections hinged together. The guides that the commercial doors roll up in are 3/16” to ½” structural steel, much stronger and longer lasting than formed 16 gauge metal used in other doors. The added security is a main driving feature towards why the majority of architects and prominent building owners insist on Cornell commercial roll up doors. In addition to the heavier duty steel lasting much longer, which is used in both the coiling door slats and guides, all parts thoughout the commercial rolling doors are engineered to last much longer. Our standard rolling doors are constructed to withstand daily use and warrantied up to 50,000 cycles, which is twice the amount of many of our competitors. Our overhead doors can be upgraded to withstand 300,000 or even a 1,000,0000 maintenance free open and closed cycles. Only Cornell offers this.
