There are many of creative ways to use garage doors. Especially glass ones. Glass garage doors have become much more common in residential applications. Typically, the doors are constructed in a paneled design with a grid pattern separating the panes of glass. The grids can be fabricated from wood or metal, similar to window frames. Glass garage doors are designed to be strong and tamper-resistant, with several opacity options from which to choose, including clear, frosted and tinted colors. Glass garage doors are also solar treatments that encourage thermal heat gain.

Installing Glass Garage Doors In Unconventional Spaces

Glass is the preferred material for those converting garages into rooms or studios, and certainly for those installing garage doors in unconventional spaces because of their clean, modern aesthetic and the fact that they act as an enormous window when closed, bringing in all kinds of natural light.

Glass Garage Doors For Interior Use

Glass Garage Doors Inspiring Indoor and Outdoor Spaces. Or as one costumer told us :”If I had it my way, my whole house would be made of these doors”.

Glass Garage Doors Open Up Interior Spaces –  Using a remote control, the glass door opens overhead allowing traffic to flow during gatherings. Closed, it creates an attractive wall of windows, adding a panoramic view to any living space.

Contemporary glass garage doors are becoming a growing alternative to traditional “hinged” patio doors as architects, contractors and interior designers look for new ways to seamlessly merge indoor and let the outdoor come into the living spaces. This type of garage doors is very versatile and can be used for a variety of projects and this is why these doors are so versatile and popular.

Part of the solution is to avoid the problem.

To function effectively, garage doors rely on torsion or extension springs, which are wound very tightly to generate enough tension on the door to make it lift. Most modern doors possess safety mechanisms to keep a snapping spring from flying free and causing injury. That said, these don’t mitigate every risk. If you attempt to repair a malfunctioning door, you could put yourself in harm’s way. Conventional garage doors also have bottom brackets, which are under extreme tension. If someone deliberately or accidentally loosens one of these brackets, serious injury may occur.

A professional garage door service can help you side-step serious problems by providing experienced service you can count on.

Sometimes homeowners don’t realize their garage doors is not functioning the right way until there is a problem.

Most problems can be avoided by regular Garage Door Inspection.

Which type of door should you specify? Select the garage door type that best fits your project needs by using this helpful guide by Door Repair NYC-Garage Door Services.

Sectional Doors – Commercial sectional garage doors are appropriate when thermal efficiency and security are a concern, where window space is desired for light or visibility, or simply for aesthetic reasons. Sectional garage doors also operate quietly and generate little noise in windy applications. They require significant backroom or headroom, depending on the application. The Raynor family of steel sectional garage doors includes thermal, ribbed, rail and stile, and raised panel doors. Raynor sectional products are a perfect fit for commercial and industrial loading dock door applications.

Rolling Doors Door Repair NYC technicians are appropriate in demanding environments requiring maximum durability and security. Because of minimal backroom, headroom and side room requirements, rolling doors are able to fit in tight spaces not appropriate for sectional doors. Constructed of interlocking slats that wind around a barrel, the rolling door family includes service doors and counter shutters. Security grilles also fit into this category.

Fire Doors – Featuring some of the same construction characteristics as rolling doors, commercial fire doors are specified in facilities that require a listed fire door in a rated firewall. Fire doors are normally provided with fusible links that automatically release to close the door at 165 F. Smoke and heat detectors or a building’s alarm system can also trigger the door’s descent. The fire door family includes both service doors and counter shutters.

Traffic Doors – Similar in construction to a rolling service door, traffic doors feature a high-strength fabric, rather than a metal, curtain. This allows for doors to achieve faster speeds when traveling, which make them ideal for high cycle applications. Also, if contact is made with the door forcing it out of its guides, it is easily replaced without a service call.
