4 Things to Consider When Installing an Industrial Roller Door

Industrial Roller Door

Whether it’s for your home or your business premises, industrial roller doors are a great option for keeping your possessions safe with easy access to use and retrieve them whenever you need them. However, before going ahead with getting yourself an industrial roller door, it’s important to consider a few things that make affect the installing process, costs and ongoing use of the roller door. 

At Kelly Garage Doors, we have experience repairing residential and commercial industrial roller doors so we’ve seen a thing or two when it comes to issues with these types of doors when things have gone wrong and they are damaged or no longer working. Industrial roller doors are made to increase security and should have excellent strength to be functional and long-lasting, therefore we urge you to check out these few things to consider before making a decision of installing them. 

1. Door Clearance 

Any door but industrial roller doors, in particular, need good clearance space.  This means that there should be no obstacles such as shelving, boxes or vehicles in the way of the door’s movement. This is important for the roller door to be able to open without any issues. There should be no obstruction in the way of where the door will sit when it’s fully opened – this includes things like cars, tools, shelving or racking. If there are any obstructions, it could result in costly damage to both the door and the items in the way. 

2. Height & Width

It’s important to get a good roller door that fits the accurate measurements of the doorframe as well as the space in which the door will be installed. This is because if the measurements are off, it can result in a door that doesn’t fit properly and will be gaps around the door. This can be a security issue as the safety of your business or personal items is compromised which can lead to theft, damages and other incidents. 

It’s also important to take into account the height of the ceiling if the door is going to be installed in a garage. This is because some industrial roller doors are taller than others and won’t fit properly if there isn’t enough height clearance. We recommend making sure that a licensed installer has double-checked these factors and ensured that the roller door you want is in stock for the height and width desired for the space you’re working with.

3. Weather Conditions

When thinking about getting an industrial roller door, you should also consider what the weather conditions are like in your area. If you live somewhere that experiences a lot of extreme weather conditions such as high winds, then it’s important to get a door that is wind-rated. This is because if the door isn’t rated, it may not be secure or strong enough, and be damaged in strong winds and become unusable. 

4. Roller Door Motor 

Last but not least, you should consider the motor that will be used to operate the door. This is an important factor as the wrong size or type of motor can result in decreased security, damage to property and even personal injury. 

You should also make sure that there is a safety brake installed as this will help to prevent any accidents from happening. If you’re not sure what motor to get for your industrial roller door, we recommend talking to a licensed installer who will be able to advise you on the best option for your specific needs. 

Installing an industrial roller door is a big decision and there are a few things that you need to take into account before making your purchase. We hope that this blog has helped to give you an idea of what some of those things are.
