Commercial Garage Door Sizing Guide
Commercial garage doors are essential for maximizing daily efficiencies and providing safe and convenient entry to your building or facility. But to get the most out of your garage door, you need a style and size that best fits your daily needs. Unfortunately, many new business owners may be unaware of the various garage door types and options available.
Commercial Garage Door Sizes
Before investing in a new commercial garage door, it’s essential to understand your style and sizing options to ensure the product you install facilitates easy entry for trucks and safe loading and unloading. A commercial garage door can add style, versatility and functionality to your property.
The two most common types of commercial garage doors are overhead and roll-up options:
- Overhead Doors: Standard overhead garage doors are 32 feet by 2 inches wide and 24 feet by 1 inch high. When considering which commercial garage door will best suit your daily activity, determine if this size will fit your needs. If not, look into finding garage door options that can be constructed with extra height dimensions or search for a larger type of commercial door, like a roll-up commercial door, with larger standard widths and heights.
- Roll-Up Commercial Doors: Roll-up garage doors are ideal for spaces with limited headroom and are popular choices for many businesses because they are easy for workers to open and close. A roll-up door is typically 30 feet by 4 inches wide and 28 feet by 4 inches high.
- Insulated Options: Many commercial garage doors are also available with added insulation to improve the energy efficiency of your facility and keep harsh weather conditions out of your space, like moisture and extreme temperatures. If your facility stores or transports sensitive materials, an insulated garage door is a perfect solution because they protect your interiors from potentially corrosive elements. But while these doors offer several benefits, they’re constructed a bit smaller at 30 feet by 2 inches wide and 24 feet by 1 inch high.
These sizes are ideal for standard truck sizes to drive in and out easily and safely. If you anticipate larger trucks or equipment needing access to your property, you would benefit from having a custom-sized commercial garage door installed.
By understanding the standard commercial garage door sizes available, you can better anticipate your needs and determine which truck sizes can easily access your property. You can also have a better idea of typical costs and understand how to better negotiate product and installation costs.
