Commercial Garage Doors 101

commercial garage door 101

Commercial garage doors can be as big as 24 ft. wide and 20 ft. high. These doors also vary in terms of style, appearance, and energy-efficiency. Fire-rated commercial garage doors can also be constructed. The various types of commercial garage doors available to you as well as what components are required are outlined in the proceeding sections.

Types of Commercial Garage Doors

Sectional Doors: With hinged sections, sectional garage doors manufactured in your choice of steel or aluminum provide reliable, uncompromising performance. 2” polystyrene insulation delivers superior R-values for increased energy-efficiency in most any application, including warehouse, mechanics and auto dealership applications. *

High Speed: Manufacturing, distribution, food/beverage, and pharmaceutical industries will appreciate the fast response rate of high speed rolling doors. These doors feature 4-second or less operation, advanced safety features, and low maintenance requirements. Custom models, sizes, and colors are available as well.

Rolling Service Doors: Ideal for situations where side room and headroom are at a premium, rolling service doors are available in a range of slat profiles, curtain materials, and colors to compliment most any aesthetic. Doors roll up into a “barrel” above the door. Rolling service doors can be custom configured for any application.

Additional System Components

Torsion Springs

All commercial garage doors require torsion springs that use stored tension to counterbalance the weight of the door as it opens and closes. Because of this tension, torsion springs should always be professionally installed, serviced or repaired. You can, however, apply lubricant (either white lithium grease or silicone-based) to the entire length of the torsion spring to help maintain the spring’s longevity.

Commercial Operators

Commercial garage doors require commercial operators. Available options include jackshaft operators, slide door operators, slow-speed and gearhead hoist operators, and trolley operators – all from brand name manufacturers. Consult a commercial garage door service professional for advice on which operator will work best with your commercial garage door.

No doubt they are the best garage door company in the valley. Had them out to replace an opener, springs, rod and gave me a very good quote to add a 2nd opener on the small door. Cody was the technician doing the work, great guy, very helpful and took his time explaining my options.

Really saved our night. When we discovered the spring had broken on our garage door, locking our cars inside, it was a stressful situation. At first we thought we’d have to wait til morning but Arizona’s Best Garage Door got technicians over the same night, fixed the door at a fair price, and got us unstuck in time for me to pick up my teenager (saving us Uber money). They did a great estimate and stuck to it. And when my big dog barked at strangers in the house they both took time to put him at ease. It was an excellent resolution to our little emergency

Google verified job · Very responsive ! I am the landlord and this is a rental for me. It was almost as if I was there but didn’t have to be. Travis communicated with me, sent pictures/video, cared about my budget, went above and beyond with a temporary fix until a replacement door could be installed. Made sure I benefited from current incentives, price was reasonable. Travis was my main point of contact and could not have been better. I have never given any service 5 stars. REALLY impressed and positive about this experience. Thank you so much !

Tim & Cody were great. Cody explained everything in details and terms I could understand. Cody made special accommodations for my handicap and made me feel at ease with his professionalism. He is dedicated to his craft and it shows. My only complaint would be with google for only letting me rate up to 5 stars when they deserve a lot more. Great company, excellent service, could not of dreamed of any better. Thanks a Million Guys!!

I’m not one to post or post comments but I have to Arizona’s Best Garage Door has DEFINITELY lived up to its positive reputation that others have commented on. Our spring broke on the garage door. We replaced the spring, cable and opted to get a new opener. I experienced the same great customer service from the beginning when the appt was scheduled over the phone to the moment when the technician Travis completed the work. Travis was friendly and thorough to explain the operation of the wi if opener we installed. I would use this company again and highly recommend to anyone in need of garage door repair.

Came out and completed requested repairs on my garage doors and as completing inspection, found several other ares that they recommended replacement parts. Most of the parts were original to the home (1995) so I wanted peace of mind that our doors would function with no issues moving forward. Our technician, Travis, took the time to explain what he saw and was very through in his work. Thanks again and will highly recommend.

Fast, fair, friendly. Understanding I’m a baller on a budget. They communicated any needs I may also need but didn’t pressure any sales. I like that. There was a training session going on with a newbie worker and they hire some outstanding people. This place is legit. Finally, the communication from their dispatch was outstanding. I wasn’t nervous about price or nothing. They were straight forward. Good stuff guys!
