Agricultural buildings hold critical goods like livestock, harvested grain, and expensive equipment, so you need to know you're keeping them secure. Fortunately, Creative Door Services™ supplies, installs, and services various high-quality commercial folding doors for your numerous agricultural applications. Whether it's your barn, shed, or storage facility, we have the doors you need.

Vertically Opening Vs. Horizontally Opening Doors

While sectional doors have their place on farms, the team at Creative Door Services™ often recommends FinDoors to agricultural customers. These doors are designed to suit Canadian working environments and withstand the rigours of Canadian climates.

If you’re remodelling an outbuilding on your property, here are just some of the reasons to choose a FinDoor.

  • Minimal profile. Unlike doors that open vertically, FinDoors open horizontally and tuck neatly out of the way. They also don’t rely on chains, springs, or bulky rails. Therefore, they require minimal maintenance and won’t freeze, rust, or get stuck. FinDoors also don’t require regular safety inspections.

  • Durability. FinDoors never lose their shape or absorb moisture because the interior is lined with polystyrene closed-cell structural foam that provides an R-value of 12.5. The exterior coating contains a durable modified polyester resin that resists chalking, fading, and environmental weathering. The FinDoor can handle everything from heavy winds and torrential rain to frigid winter temperatures.

  • Space and energy efficiency. Unlike doors that must be opened all the way to access the inside of the building, FinDoors are made up of panels that can be anywhere from two to eight feet wide. Therefore, you can choose to only open a few panels at once, saving you money on heating and cooling and limiting the amount of dirt and debris that ends up inside.

  • Versatile operation. FinDoors can be opened and closed by hand but can also be outfitted with a push-button switch and wireless remote controls for electrical operation.

FinDoors can also be equipped with triple-pane windows, an especially helpful feature if the door is installed on a livestock shelter or workshop where natural light is essential.

4 Things To Consider Before Upgrading Your Commercial Door

When you're investing in upgrades, you want to get it right the first time. Here are four key considerations for choosing a new door for one of your farm buildings.

  1. Size. As a rule of thumb, you should size your door with at least two feet of side clearance and one foot of head clearance for your largest equipment. Each FinDoor is made to spec in terms of dimensions and can be up to 49 feet wide and 23 feet tall to accommodate large machinery.

  2. Waterproofing. If you must keep the goods in your outbuilding dry and safe from the elements, waterproofing is a must. FinDoors are equipped with an eight-fold male-female weatherstrip and double door sweep to seal off critical areas when the door is closed. The result is a weathertight seal that prevents heat seepage and keeps air and moisture outside where it belongs.

  3. Security. Farm buildings often house high-value goods, so you'll need a door with the right security features. FinDoors are mounted using corrosion-proof mounting devices that meet the C4 classification, meaning they have crucial anti-burglary features.

  4. Safety. Traditional commercial doors can be heavy and dangerous to operate. FinDoors, on the other hand, are so lightweight they’re even safe for children to handle. For example, a 16 x 16-foot FinDoor can be operated by the average 10-year-old. In addition, FinDoors can be fire-rated up to a classification of EI30, which effectively keeps flames, fumes, and toxic gases contained for at least 30 minutes. In a nutshell, FinDoors can help you avoid injuries.

Finally, every single FinDoor is made to order and comes with a two-year warranty. We also offer a planned maintenance program to ensure your doors continue to work like new.

If you don’t think a FinDoor will meet your needs, check out our article on how to find the right door for your farming operation. We also carry various sheet, rolling, and sectional doors from brands like Wayne Dalton, TNR, and Hormann-Flexon to ensure the needs of your farming operation get met.
