Commercial doors are not created equal. They are tailored to fit what businesses need for functionality. To enhance that functionality and reinforce them with convenience, specialty commercial door operators exist.
Specialty commercial door operators differ according to the type of specialty application. These are valuable in a commercial garage door system for smooth entry and exit. Door operators also enhance the safety and security of the traffic that accesses them.
Types of Specialty Commercial Doors
A commercial garage door encloses the establishment and is chosen according to its application and functionality for that particular site. They need to be highly reliable since day-to-day business operations depend on them.
The most common types of specialty commercial doors are sectional doors, rolling doors, and high-speed doors.
A sectional door is made up of sectional panels that open vertically and are suspended under the ceiling. Rolling doors, on the other hand, have metal pieces that roll up to the top of the door frame, while high-speed doors open horizontally or vertically but at a higher speed than conventional garage doors.
Other specialty doors are less commonly used and apply only to certain industrial applications. They include pass doors, fire doors, forced-entry doors, sound-resistant, bullet-resistant, and hurricane-resistant doors.
Specialty Commercial Door Operators
Specialty commercial door operators are part of the garage doors that automatically open and close them. Door operators can be electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic. They make the work more efficient, reducing the need for human force to operate a heavy-weight commercial door.
There are three main types of commercial door operators: jackshaft, trolley, and hoist operators.
A jackshaft commercial operator is wall-mounted and compatible with sectional doors. A commercial hoist operator can be an industrial duty or medium duty operator for large sectional garage doors. These types have hoist chains for manual operation.
The trolley operators are overhead door operators ideal for motorizing commercial sectional overhead doors operating in different horsepower.
Benefits of Specialty Commercial Door Operators
Specialty commercial door openers are essential for many businesses as a way to streamline garage door operations. It makes it easier to perform daily tasks and increase efficiency and productivity in a commercial service.
An automatic door operator is also designed with safety sensors to prevent the heavy gate from closing in on a vehicle, human, or other obstructions.
Modern garage door openers can also be connected to a remote access control device. LiftMaster commercial door operators, for example, have the patented myQ technology. This enables users to access the garage door over the web or through the myQ app.
Specialty door operators are well-suited for new garage door installations or retrofit applications. You can ask an expert about retrofitting and the door hardware requirements if you want to upgrade your current commercial garage door system.
Built according to the specific needs and applications of a business, a specialty commercial door operator enforces security within the premises.
