Commercial garage doors can be the gateway to all sorts of vehicles and equipment. If your company is in the process of choosing a garage door for your business, here are a few things that you should keep in mind.
Measure out the height and width requirements of the door in order to know whether a normal sized garage door will work or if you will need to special order the door. Take your dimensions to your Utah garage door manufacturer to help give them an idea of the space that needs to be covered.
How durable do you need the door to be? How constantly will it be opening and closing? What sort of weather will it need to withstand? Good quality materials will ensure that your door withstands the test of time, and reduce the need to replace it very often. While the cost of good quality materials, such as steel, may cost more initially, they will help save you money in the long run.
The third area to consider is the way that your door will open and close. Traditionally, garage doors were opened and closed by hand. Today, many choose to have the door automated. Automation is particularly helpful for a company that is extremely busy and find that the door will be opening and closing frequently. Not only is the automation helpful for your employees, but it causes less stress on your garage door parts, helping them to last longer.
Do you want panels on your door? What is your desired color or finish? The look of your garage door will be what your customers see and you want to make sure that it gives the right impression of your company.
If you plan on storing any sort of valuable vehicles or equipment in your garage, you want to make sure they are secure. The stronger the door, the harder it will be for any intruders to break into the garage. Talk to your Utah garage door manufacturer about the different security options that are inherent in different designs and materials.
