Rolling Steel DoorsRolling Steel Doors: Low Maintenance Commercial Roll Up Doors

Rolling steel doors (also known as commercial roll up doors) are metal slatted that roll up to store in coil above the opening. They are used to provide security against entry or weather protection at exterior and interior openings in industrial, commercial, institutional and other buildings.

These commercial roll up doors sustain high wind loads and can be operated by either hand crank, chain or motors.

Rolling steel doors are also called overhead coiling doors, service doors or commercial roll up doors.
