Stylish Commercial Doors for Car Dealerships

Auto dealerships no longer have to sacrifice attractiveness and efficiency for the functionality of commercial doors in their facilities. Today’s commercial doors can beautify your building, and they can also improve energy efficiency and increase productivity.

Creative Door Services™ carries a wide range of commercial doors for your showroom or service centre bays with modern looks and high performance. Here are some benefits of our doors and what to look for when choosing one.

Benefits Of Installing High-Performance Commercial Doors

Installing high-performance doors in your car dealership has the following advantages:

  • Fast operating speeds. High-performance doors can open and close faster than standard doors. Opening speeds can be as quick as two metres per second. Customers will wait only two or three seconds for the door to open, rather than the 18 to 20 seconds it would take for a standard door. It also means employees can spend more time on their tasks and serving customers rather than waiting for doors to open.

    Moreover, faster operating speeds mean less time for conditioned air to escape from your facility while the door is open, leading to reduced heating and cooling costs.

  • Improved efficiency and climate control. Today’s high-performance doors are fitted with weather-tight door-to-floor gaskets and insulated panels to keep out the harshest Canadian weather. Even rubber doors have a high insulation value. Plus, fast operating speeds prevent indoor air from escaping.

    Installing a full-vision commercial door has the added benefit of letting in natural light so that you can use less electricity in your showroom and mechanic bays during daylight hours. The added sunlight will help warm your facility in the winter months.

  • Improved safety. High-performance rolling and panel doors offer various safety features that keep your customers and employees safe. Most models have instant stop-reverse features, motion detectors, radio controls, time delay close mechanisms, and loop detectors.

  • Improved storefront curb appeal. Commercial door manufacturers have various styles and colours to choose from, so you’re bound to find a door that fits your dealership’s brand and modern look. Choose frosted glass, powder-coated aluminum, or customized steel to beautify your storefront and attract customers. Additionally, high-speed roll-up doors have discreet housing, which doesn’t require a lot of space and blends into the interior decor.

  • Quiet operation. High-performance doors have features like PVC hardware and no metal-to-metal contact to keep noise to a minimum. Opening and closing your doors won’t disturb customers or annoy your staff.

3 Considerations When Buying A Commercial Door For Your Auto Dealership

When choosing a high-performance door for your auto dealership, consider the following:

1.) Space requirement. Many panel doors roll back into the building, blocking lighting, the HVAC system, and plumbing. The door will be in plain view on the ceiling as well. Alternatively, a high-speed roll-up door rolls tightly above the opening into a discreet and enclosed housing unit. You need much less space, and the housing can be powder coated to match your interior colours.

2.) Commercial door materials. There are several materials you can choose from when it comes to commercial doors for your car dealership, including:

    • Steel, available in galvanized, stainless, or structural options, is a rigid, durable material that resists dents but requires maintenance to prevent rust and corrosion.

    • Aluminum is more lightweight and corrosion-resistant than steel but more susceptible to dings and dents.

    • Rubber is a highly rugged and insulative material that’s less expensive than metal doors, requires little maintenance, and lasts a long time. Some rubber door models can withstand wind speeds up to 120 kilometres an hour.

3.) Planned maintenance. No matter what style and material you choose, maintaining your doors will keep them looking and functioning like new for years. Creative Door Services™ offers a Planned Maintenance Program, where one of our certified technicians visits your dealership at your convenience, inspecting your commercial doors down to the last spring. Regular maintenance reduces downtime, decreases repair costs, and maintains security.
