Overhead Coiling Sheet Doors

Use this 3 part specification template to specify overhead coiling sheet steel doors.

Overhead coiling sheet doors, often referred to as roll-up doors or rolling steel doors, are a type of door commonly used in commercial and industrial building projects. They are designed to provide secure access to large openings, such as those in warehouses, loading docks, and industrial facilities.

Characteristics of overhead coiling sheet doors:

  1. Construction:
    • They are constructed using interlocking slats or sheets made of materials like steel or aluminum.
    • These slats are arranged in a way that allows the door to roll up into a coil or drum-like housing located above the door opening.
  2. Operation:
    • Operated either manually or using electric motors. Motorized versions are more common in commercial settings for convenience and efficiency.
  3. Space-Saving Design:
    • Their roll-up design allows them to occupy minimal space when in the open position, making them ideal for areas with limited headroom.
  4. Security and Durability:
    • High level of security and durability, providing a robust barrier against unauthorized entry, weather, and potential intruders.
  5. Versatility:
    • They come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of openings, from small storefronts to large industrial entrances.
  6. Customization:
    • They can be customized with features like insulation for thermal efficiency, vision panels for visibility, and special coatings for corrosion resistance.
  7. Weather Resistance:
    • Models come with weather seals and features that provide protection against elements like rain, wind, and extreme temperatures.
  8. Applications:
    • They are commonly used in settings where quick and secure access is crucial, such as warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and commercial garages.
  9. Safety Features:
    • Modern overhead coiling doors often come equipped with safety features like sensors to detect obstructions and prevent accidents.
  10. Longevity and Low Maintenance:
    • They are built to withstand heavy use and require relatively low maintenance, making them a cost-effective choice for commercial applications
Spec Notes:
  • Doors specified in this section are fabricated from a single sheet of steel with structural quality complying with ASTM A653/A653M.
  • These doors do not require an overhead track; the door curtain rolls up around a head tube.
  • These doors are non-insulated and manually operated.
