Selecting a Commercial Overhead Door for Your Business
Contractors and builders typically have required (or recommended) specifications when making the purchase of a commercial overhead door, commercial gates or residential garage doors on behalf of their clients. But what about the individual business owner or building owner that is purchasing a new commercial overhead door or commercial gate on his own behalf? Many of us have found out the hard way that it is much better to do our homework and get the facts up front, (or we unfortunately end up paying for it afterwards.). If you’re considering the purchase of a commercial overhead door for your building, showroom entrance, loading dock, security entryway, or business, below is a list of important pre-purchase considerations.
Purchasing considerations for a commercial overhead door are often very different from those of a residential garage door. Residential customers are typically interested in style (How will this new garage door fit in with the overall “look” of my home? How might the new garage door enhance the home’s value? How will it blend in with other garage doors on the street/in the neighborhood, etc.?), security (Will this new garage door keep my family safe and protect my belongings? Will the garage door or gate help prevent unwanted intruders/theft?), and utility (How often and for what purposes will the new garage door be used? Does it give my family members the entry flexibility they need, etc.?). When purchasing a commercial overhead door, however, the buyer considerations are often very different, as they are typically driven by underlying business objectives.
Commercial Overhead Door Considerations
When buying a new commercial overhead door, a business owner typically thinks first and foremost, about functionality – who will be using this door, how often, for what reason, in what capacity, etc. An efficiently functional commercial overhead door keeps your business running and frees you from unnecessary interruptions. Access is another important consideration – will the commercial overhead door and/or the building be secured, how will they be secured, who will have entry access, etc. And lastly, are there any building codes and restrictions that I need to consider when making this commercial overhead door purchase – color, construction, entry requirements/restrictions, etc. These are all important considerations that a business owner should think through before making your purchase.
Please visit our commercial overhead door showroom and speak with one of our experienced engineers or representatives. This purchase is not just about the commercial overhead door, itself; it’s about protecting your business assets (computers, important documents, business equipment, and belongings.). It is also about keeping your facility and your staff members safe at all times. Do not rush through the selection process for your commercial garage door. Allow Santa Barbara Overhead Door to engineer the perfect door system just for you. Remember, it’s not just the commercial overhead door that’s important — it’s what’s behind that door that matters most.
