Choosing Door Size with Building Order

As a rule of thumb, choose your Roll-Up door to be 2′ less than building height & 2′ clearance right & left bay column on SIDEWALLS when ordering building with FSO.

For ENDWALLS placement of doors, the building should be at least 2.5′ taller than door height in 1:12 roof pitch, due to interior building framing components. Plan 3-4′ less than eave height and sides if your building requires a Portal Frame. FSO representative will confirm that your chosen door size fits at the time of building order.

General Information for Roll Up Doors

Click for More General Information for Roll Up Doors

Our commercial doors use heavy-duty brackets made of .187-thick angle, as well as have a high-cycle spring life and continuous-duty design.  The commercial doors are wind load tested in accordance with IBC, FBC and TDI.   Furthermore,  our metal building roll up doors have electric motor capabilities and multiple mounting options including steel, wood, masonry, and concrete.

These steel curtain roll-up doors are easy to install and, additionally require minimal maintenance.  We have a variety of models and colors available from which to choose.


Curtain

Notice that our commercial doors are manufactured with hard, Grade E steel ensuring strength and durability.  A siliconized polyester finish replaces older polyester paint finishes, which are recognizable by severe chalking and fading from direct contact with UV rays and, in summary, our steel curtain roll-up doors are coated with a silicone polyester paint highly resistant to UV light rays allowing some colors a warranty of up to 25 years.

  • 26-gauge galvanized, Grade E hard steel
  • 5/8″ ribbed corrugation
  • Siliconized polyester WeatherXL™ paint over prime coat
  • 30-year film integrity warranty, up to 25-year chalk and fade warranty

A.C.E. Guides System

Notice that the A.C.E. (Advanced Curtain Engagement) guide system has been designed to benefit our customers. Some of the benefits include universal mounting options, increased durability, excellent performance and ease of installation.  These doors are of the most advanced rolling sheet door guide systems in the industry.


Axle-Drum Assembly

The commercial door axles and drums are manufactured with industrial-grade steel.  The door drums are designed and engineered specifically for commercial application to ensure product integrity,  long life, and high-capacity use.  Steel ball bearings are preferable to nylon or plastic bushings, which can disintegrate under heavy use.


Springs

The springs are the most critical mechanical component of a steel curtain roll-up door. For maximum reliability, the manufacturer uses only oil-tempered torsion-type springs for its commercial-grade steel curtain roll up doors. Coordinating the design of a roll-up door with the proper spring assembly ensures longer and more durable use with minimal maintenance required.  In independent tests, our commercial-grade steel curtain roll-up door exceeded 40,000 openings and closings before any maintenance was required. Although there is no such thing as a maintenance-free door, we engineer our roll-up doors to be maintenance-simple: easily visible for inspection and accessibility.


Wind Load Certification

Fueled by the constant changes in local and national building codes, as well as increasing insurance costs, choosing a door with a validated wind certification can dramatically reduce maintenance and replacement costs. The in-house wind certification facility enables us to manufacture doors to the highest standards. Our commercial door 5000 Series, wind certified doors are designed to meet stringent building codes in coastal regions and Florida.
