Overhead Doors and What to Consider


What are Overhead Doors? ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems have extensive experience being part of the design and installation stages of overhead doors. Overhead doors are an essential part of any business that requires a practical and safe solution to the transportation of larger loads in and out of a factory bay that would otherwise be impractical, or even impossible. Other benefits of an overhead door include better circulation and access to more sunlight. Our selection of overhead sectional doors includes all these benefits and more.

Loading bay areas can be a hotspot for accidents and seamless infrastructure is essential to reducing this risk. It is therefore necessary that systems including the loading bay door work perfectly to minimise this threat, increasing productivity as a result.

Keep Warm

ASSA ABLOY offer overhead doors with extra insulation, to better sustain the thermal quality of the building. Likewise, we offer doors that are manual or electric, fast-closing and not. Our fast-closing doors also better improve the thermal quality of the building by reducing the time exposing the factory floor to the elements.

What to Consider

There is a lot to consider when it comes to designing a building with the intention of installing overhead doors. Functionality, practicality, and safety of both people and goods are just a few things that come to mind. You will need to account for the structural requirements of an overhead sectional door, such as the mounting frame, floor details and suspension devices.
