Different Types of Commercial Doors

There are many different types of commercial doors, and they vary based on an individual business’s needs. Take a look at some of the most common commercial doors below.

The Different Types of Commercial Doors

Overhead Doors

Overhead doors are a broad category of commercial doors characterized by their vertical open and close functions. Overhead doors are mounted on a structure’s vertical face and feature ceiling-hanging door tracks. You can pull most overhead doors up or down manually, but today, many perform these functions automatically via a remote or even through a mobile app over Wi-Fi. 

Sectional Doors

Sectional doors, or sectional overhead doors, are popular options for commercial loading docks and spaces with similar purposes. A sectional door features vertical mounting and ceiling-secured door tracks along with a space-saving construction. Most sectional doors feature advanced insulation and environmental control technology to keep a space’s interior pest- and airborne particle-free as well as temperature-regulated.

Grille Doors

Grille doors are typically used for security purposes. Stores inside malls often use vertical or gate grilles for an extra measure of security when closing down for the evening. However, many commercial buildings can also use grilles because of the door’s multi-panel structure, usually secured by aluminum or galvanized steel. Grille panels can either be glass or metal and run along vertical or horizontal tracks. Overhead grilles are locked at the floor, while gate grills have two grille sections joined in the center.

Freezer Doors

Freezer doors are another common type of commercial door. Supermarkets, grocers and other food production and storage areas are perhaps the most frequent installers of freezer-specific commercial doors. Like most sectional overhead doors, freezer doors feature advanced insulation technology — but their insulation and temperature control are even more powerful. Most designs also prevent excessive condensation and ice build-up, making freezer doors an indispensable choice for food industries.

Fabric and Plastic Barriers

Fabric and plastic overhead doors are popular interior solutions to seal off storage rooms and other areas from temperature changes, drafts, moisture and airborne impurities. Many commercial businesses choose these types of barriers as a secondary insulation solution, especially in spaces where exterior overhead doors are kept open for long periods or as a second barrier to cooler areas.
