Industrial garage doors must be durable enough to withstand temperature changes, moisture, rain, and seasonal changes throughout the year. Is your industrial garage door up to the challenge?
- First, look for signs of rust. Most industrial garage doors are manufactured with steel. Rust spots on steel should be attended to frequently to avoid long-term problems. If your industrial garage door is facing a lot of wear and tear, rust will prevent the door from keeping out moisture and dust.
- Next, consider if your industrial garage door is insulated. This is an important consideration for energy efficiency. Non-insulated doors may result in a loss of control over internal temperature and higher energy bills as you attempt to regulate indoor temperatures. If this is a concern for your business, upgrading to an insulated door may be an important investment.
- Finally, take a look at the seals on your industrial garage door. Are there small gaps or compromised weatherstripping? This may be an early sign that your door will not prevent water or air infiltration. It is important to take preventative measures to protect your garage door from these small weaknesses to maintain a strong, well-maintained door over time.
