Behind, or more often in front, of every safe and secure business is a strong commercial door. Commercial doors are specifically built for commercial purposes, such as office buildings, stores, schools, and hospitals. They are built with more durability and strength than a residential door, and can withstand more frequent use.

Types of Commercial Doors
There are a few different kinds of commercial doors you can have installed to secure your commercial space. Roll up doors are made of steel slats, which last for a long time with minimum maintenance. They simply roll up overhead and are stored above the door opening, giving you some added commercial space.
Overhead doors are often used at loading docks and manufacturing facilities to allow large objects to be brought into the building. They also save space by opening upwards instead of swinging out. Overhead doors can be a fast, efficient way to allow access to a commercial space.
Fire Rated Doors
If your commercial space is exposed to petrol or other harmful chemicals, you will probably want to look at fire rated doors, which can help reduce the risk that come with handling such substances. These doors are designed to close automatically in the event of a fire, sealing off the fire-affected area and keeping other areas of your business or outdoor areas safe. The fire rated door also helps to prevent the spread of and reduce fire damage.
Scissor Gate Doors
Scissor gate doors are made from high quality steel for added security. They are preferable for commercial establishments, including lending firms and banks. The secure construction offers safety and protection for your business while being lightweight and user-friendly. Scissor gate doors can be custom designed for your commercial space, whether you’re looking to have them placed in a storefront or on an internal door.
Commercial Door Materials
Commercial doors come in a range of styles and can be built with different materials, including steel, which provides high security and durability. It’s one of the most common materials used to build a commercial door. Steel commercial doors are manufactured from metal sheets and wrapped around some sort of core of installation. You can improve its security by inserting various kinds of locking systems into the door.
Commercial doors can be built using wood, which aren’t as durable as many of the other materials. Wood doors are typically very sensitive and aren’t able to withstand extreme weather conditions.
Doors made from aluminum and glass are frequently used at entrance ways for commercial structures and are chosen for their clean appearance that also allows in natural light thanks to the glass. These doors are usually low maintenance, although you’ll probably have to wipe down the glass portion of the door to keep it sparkly and clean.
Full glass doors are primarily used on building interiors for their decorative look. They allow in a large amount of light, which can make your commercial space seem larger. They are also built with safety glass to reduce the risk of injury in case the door is broken.
Fiberglass doors are some of the most durable you can put in your business. They are manufactured using plastic matrix and fine fibers of glass. Fiberglass doors typically require little maintenance and have a reputation for outlasting many other door materials.
