What’s The Difference Between Sectional and Rolling Doors?

Sectional doors are made of several horizontal panels joined together by hinges that allow them to bend and follow a curved path as they open and close. When fully open, the door lies flat against the ceiling. Since sectional doors slide up and down instead of swinging in and out, you can easily store items and park vehicles right up against the door.

Rolling doors, on the other hand, are made up of several corrugated metal panels that roll up into a box directly atop the door's opening. Unlike sectional doors, rolling doors don’t have any tracks, wheels, hinges, or cables. They're also quieter than other types of commercial doors.

Moreover, since rolling doors have interlocking slats that roll up into a coil above the door, they don’t take up much space. This is ideal if your business operates in a small area with little to no headroom. You can free up storage space on the ceiling and won’t have to worry about blocking access to the roof or attic.

How To Determine the Best Type of Commercial Door for Your Business

When choosing a commercial door for your business, it’s important to remember that it’s not just a functional piece of equipment but a crucial aspect of your business operations. A well-chosen commercial door can increase security and efficiency and add esthetic value to your business premises.

For example, if you run a warehouse or a dockyard, you might want to consider installing a high-speed rolling door that can withstand the rigours of heavy use while providing quick and easy access to your facility. On the other hand, a sectional door with insulated panels may be the better option if you run a retail store or showroom, as it’ll help reduce noise and keep your space comfortable.
