Overhead Coiling Doors

Use this  3-part specification template to specify overhead coiling doors and countertop doors in steel or aluminum doors.


Overhead coiling doors, also known as rolling doors or rolling shutters, are a type of commercial and industrial garage door that roll up into a coil when opened. They are made from metal slats or curtains that are connected together and guided by tracks.

Used in settings where security and durability are important, such as warehouses, loading docks, and retail storefronts. They can be manually operated or motorized, and can be customized with various features such as insulation, weather sealing, and vision panels.

One of the advantages of this door type is that they can be designed to fit into tight spaces where a traditional sectional door may not be practical. They are also known for their durability and ability to withstand heavy use and extreme weather conditions.

Overall, this door offers a secure and reliable option for commercial and industrial properties that require a durable, low-maintenance door solution.

Spec Notes

  • This section includes doors fabricated from individual slats formed from steel or aluminum that interconnect to create a door curtain.
  • These doors do not require an overhead track; the door curtain rolls up around a head tube.
  • Door options include – insulated or non-insulated and manually or electrically operated.
  • Operated by manual lift handle, chain hoist, or fixed or removable crank handle.
  • Fire-rated doors, conforming to UL 10B, automatically close when released by a signal from the building’s fire alarm system, fire release device, or fusible link.  Resetting is required after door operation.
  • Doors with an emergency egress feature allow building occupants to reopen the door to escape; the door then recloses automatically.
