What is a vertical rise fiberglass door?

If your commercial or industrial facility has a large opening, then a vertical rise fiberglass door will doubtless be the ideal solution. Built to withstand high winds, high altitude and the toughest of climates, they are tough doors that are suitable for a variety of applications, in particular distribution centers, loading docks, warehouses, and any building with limited side room.

The space saving advantages of vertical rise fiberglass doors:

Vertical rise doors work exceptionally well in distribution centers and warehouses due to their space saving advantages, and items such as shelves (naturally common and vital in such types of buildings), can easily be stacked high without any tracks getting in the way.

Other advantages of vertical rise doors, is that if your business uses high-profile vehicles, they can be lifted as high as your head or even higher with the use of a floor jack, because there are no tracks to inhibit this, making them perfect for use as dock doors.

Mounting styles:

Vertical rise doors can either be mounted inside a building, or on the outside of it; when mounted inside on a wall, there must be ample headroom to run a garage door track above the opening to the door. If head room is limited inside the building, then the doors can be mounted on the exterior to prevent any alterations being required to any existing framework.

What’s the difference between a vertical rise door and a high lift door?

Perhaps the most significant difference between these two types of door, is that vertical rise doors don’t have tracks that are curved, meaning that the door can only be operated by sliding straight up into the wall. Eliminating visible tracks and helping businesses to make the most of the space they have, they are the ultimate space saving door. High lift doors, on the other hand, have a longer, straighter section of track that runs between the top roller and the curved section of the track, meaning that space cannot be maximized as effectively.

Whether you have a large business operating in a large building, or a small company running out of a small facility, vertical rise doors offer the ultimate solution for space saving.
