What benefits do sectional doors provide?

There are plenty of reasons to choose a sectional door, from the high level of practicality, insulation and security they offer to the broad range of style and colour options available. Whatever type of commercial or industrial property you own, sectional doors offer a wide selection of benefits.

Key benefits
Sectional doors can:

  • Be used in areas with restricted headroom
  • Be installed in large or small openings
  • Incorporate windows for added light and through-vision
  • Provide excellent thermal properties

Practicality

The vertical rising action of a sectional door means there is no ‘swing-out’, enabling vehicles to be parked right up against the door or for stock to be piled next to it on the inside, making it easier to load goods. This helps maximise space, particularly in loading and vehicle docking bays. Sectional doors can be installed that span the full width of the room and virtually the total height.

 

Security

Sectional doors are extremely secure. The lack of penetration points means it is almost impossible for intruders to gain a pivot point to prise the door open. To make your sectional door even more secure, it is best to fit it just behind the opening. Doing so will make your premises more or less impenetrable.

Insulation

Each sectional door will differ in its insulation and weather-protection capabilities. Some will offer very high levels of insulation, similar to that of a brick wall. If you require a specific level of insulation, make sure you ask your manufacturer for details. The way your sectional door is installed will also affect its insulation levels, so make sure that you use a qualified installer. As well as creating a more comfortable environment, insulation will help cut heat loss, potentially saving you money on your energy bills.
