Roll up garage doors

Roll up garage doors are galvanized steel doors that are manufactured into rolled formed slats that interconnect with each other to form a door curtain that rolls up into a coil above interior or exterior building openings.

Roll Up Garage Doors offer ultimate flexibility and customization

Roll up garage doors are used throughout a building to provide security against entry as well as protection from the weather at exterior and interior openings in industrial, commercial, institutional and other buildings.  These doors are custom formed from slats of formed galvanized steel, aluminum or stainless steel that roll up to store in a coil above an opening. Roll up doors can be custom manufactured to any size or specification. Because of the custom manufacturing process, there are many options to help meet any commercial garage door or even residential roll up garage door’s needs. 



Roll up door security and durability

A roll up garage door offers significant security over sectional or other types of garage doors. A roll up door is made up or individual metal slats that are typically 3 inches high, that are formed to permanently interlock to each other. Rolling doors not only utilized thicker metals in the manufacturing process, but the guides that the roll up doors travel in are solid steel as opposed to lighter gauge formed guides typically used by sectional doors. Sectional doors are hinged together exposing a vulnerability between the sections that the interlocking rolling doors do not have.

The rugged commercial grade construction quality of roll up garage doors by nature automatically mend themselves to last longer and have extended durability. Roll up doors coil up completely inside a covered header. This contains the working parts all in one enclosed section compared to parts that in a sectional door would need to be lubricated, cleaned or otherwise maintained. The more direct driven motor and parts allows rolling garage doors to offer outstanding reliability and little to no downtime for often four to five times longer than a standard garage door, helping to increase productivity.
