In addition to creating a beautiful look for a business, steel and wood door sectionals have many benefits. These doors, which travel on a track with rollers, are assisted by a spring counter balance system and cables. Read on to learn more.
Benefits of Steel When Used on a Door
One of the leading benefits of steel is that it is a weather resistant material. Steel manufacturers coat the steel with a layer of zinc or another material to make it resistant to rust and corrosion. Steel is also lightweight and easy to maintain. When a structure needs a large sectional door, using steel makes it easier to install and puts less stress on the fasteners and the building’s framing. Steel doors are most commonly used in commercial applications where aesthetic appeal is not as important. For added functionality, optional vision and light panels can be installed to provide visual access and light penetration in and out of the building.
Benefits of Doors Made from Wood
The use of wood is most common in in residential doors. These doors are much smaller than commercial doors and do not get used as extensively. Wood doors offer more decorative options such as carving and the use of glass insets.
