Many different types of companies have garages on their premises. Auto repair shops, car dealerships, power sports dealers, and more have commercial garage doors, and often, these doors take up a large amount of the outer real estate of the business. Naturally, this is something that your customers and passersby are going to see whenever they are near your shop. Does your commercial garage door look good, or does it reflect poorly on your business? It might be time that you stared to reevaluate your door and maybe even think about getting an upgrade.
The market today is full of options
One of the benefits of looking for a garage door today is that you have quite a few choices. Even with a commercial door, it doesn’t just have to be functional. It can also be aesthetically pleasing. Often people think about residential garage doors when they are talking about design, but there are some great options available with commercial garage doors today.
Let’s look at some of the examples. There is a grooved model that features 1” (25 mm) high horizontal lines on the sections. There are options with 2 thin lines and multiple lines, embossed rectangular patterns, Classic, Prestige, mixed, and elongated, and Carriage House models that are short and long. There is the Flush model, which doesn’t have any lines. There are also Shaker models that have Classic and elongated options.
If you would like to get an even better idea of the options, you can always check out the Design Centre. It will allow you to easily and quickly design the perfect door for your needs, and you can upload a photo to see how it will look when it is a part of your business.
Something else that some companies have done with their commercial garage door, and something that you might want to consider, is turning it into advertising space. They could put up logos for their business, images of their products and work, and more. It could be an excellent way to set your business apart, but you will want to make sure that there are no restrictions where your business is operating.
Remember your windows
You probably want to have windows on your garage door. Fortunately, you will have more options than you might realize. Many dealerships will use all‑glass garage doors, for example. Not only will this provide them with full light, but it also allows people to see inside. Dealerships are not the only ones who have benefits from these types of windows. Firehouses often use the same all‑glass garage doors.
You will find that there are plenty of different types of glass for the windows, as well. You will find more than 25 possible choices. Some of the options include tinted, laminated, clear, fluted polycarbonate, gray, and glue chip.
Of course, having an all‑glass garage door might not be the best solution for everyone. Those who have worries about security for their commercial space might find that they want to reduce the number of windows in their door or change how they are placed. There are various options for setting the windows and choosing different sizes, which will still allow for light to come through. However, it will also help to ensure that burglars will not be able to slip through them.
