Overhead Door

Overhead doors in Toronto are a secure and easy-to-use access point for several different spaces. It's standard to install an overhead door in the following types of buildings:

  • Residential and commercial garages
  • Loading spaces
  • Factories
  • Parking facilities
  • Warehouses
  • Research facilities

There are both specialized steel insulated overhead doors and standard commercial overhead doors. Commercial overhead doors are usually found in warehouses and seal the opening to a plant floor or loading dock.

In Toronto, an insulated overhead door is a perfect solution during the winter months to trap heat inside a large warehouse. During the summer months in Toronto, they can help regulate temperatures. They are also great for muffling and controlling noise levels within a space.

To install an overhead door, you must first outfit the door frame with a railing and tracks that allow the door to travel up and down smoothly. Next, install a roller that allows the door to roll up above the opening. You can install an overhead door in Toronto with automation, but you'll also need to ensure it opens manually in case of a power outage.

You'll need an easy-to-use transmitter or similar system to open an overhead door with automation. This allows for a wireless, hassle-free experience that lets you enter your facility as often as you need without a fuss. In the case of a commercial parking garage, overhead doors may open with sensory technology and other functions that allow cars to frequently enter the garage.

A belt or chain drive allows the door to open, and the industrial ball bearings on the output shaft let the door open smoothly with an electric operator. If you need to open it manually, you may need to trigger a manual release function and lift it from the bottom. If you don't know how to manually open an overhead door for a warehouse or similar facility, it's a good idea to request services from a technician to understand what to do in the case of a power outage.

Rolling Steel Doors for Commercial and Industrial Use in Toronto

A rolling steel door may be the best option for attractive commercial overhead doors in Toronto. Suppose you're looking to upgrade your commercial overhead door in a factory or warehouse with a sleek, reliable, and durable barrier that's also cost-efficient and offers excellent security: in that case, rolling steel doors may be the way to go.

A commercial overhead door with rolling steel gates offers incomparable durability when considering your options for commercial overhead doors. They are made with incredibly strong slats of either stainless steel, galvanized steel, or aluminum. They are easy to raise and lower and slide smoothly into a coil when not in use.

Their impenetrable strength comes from the oil-tempered torsion springs, lasting for over 50,000 life cycles. The steel brake brackets are, at minimum, ¼" thick. This incredibly durable commercial overhead door also comes with cast iron stops, heavy-duty cast gears, structural angle guides, and a bottom bar.

The ease of operation with a rolling steel commercial overhead in Toronto comes from operational choices. You can choose from a push-up, chain, crank, or motor. To enjoy your rolling steel overhead door to the fullest, make sure a highly-trained technician installs it for you.

Garage Doors and Their Maintenance

A lot goes into maintaining a garage door and its ability to function properly. Residential and commercial garage doors can open and close hundreds of times a year.

Caring for a garage door primarily involves keeping your eye on the hardware. Roller brackets and bolts can loosen over time, and they may need frequent tightening with the right tools. Furthermore, you may also need to inspect and replace the rollers of a garage door entirely, with replacement sometimes being necessary every seven years or so.

Maintaining garage doors can also involve replacing the weatherstripping that protects the inside of the garage from the rain and snow. Checking the cables that lift the door, lubricating the moving parts, inspecting the garage door tracks for debris and other materials, and checking the outside of the door for water damage are also important tasks.

If your garage door needs maintenance, skilled technicians at Universal Door Ltd. can do all of the work so that you won't need to lift a finger. Scheduling a service request ensures you won't have to stress about doing the job properly.
