Tips on finding the right commercial roller shutter for your business

Buying a commercial roller shutter for your business is a big purchase, so you want to be sure that you make the right choice and invest your money wisely. Two of the biggest reasons for buying a commercial garage door opener are security and brand presentation, factors that will play heavily on your final buying decision.

This means that you need to take your time and research different types of commercial roller shutters, their costs and whether or not the company offers a commercial door repair service as well as installation. To make the whole process go much faster, answering the following questions will help to narrow down your search.

Why do you want a commercial garage door opener?

The obvious answer is that you want a commercial roller shutter for added security, but if you want it to secure a carpark, storage facility or industrial complex for example, you will need different types of garage doors. Generally, if your primary purpose for the garage door is security, then you want a model that is tough and solid and will deter thieves. If your primary purpose is to allow vehicular access to a building (cars, delivery trucks or forklifts) then your primary concern will be that commercial roller shutter opens and closes quickly, efficiently and quietly.

How tough does the commercial roller shutter need to be?

This follows on nicely from the first question, because if your primary concern is security then you want the toughest and most robust garage door for your money. On the other hand, if your primary concern is access, then you might prefer a faster speed of operation, rather than a big heavy garage door that is slower to open and close.

What about its appearance?

If you have a busy transportation or distribution business with trucks coming and going all day there might be a high probability of damage to your garage doors, so you want to opt for toughness over aesthetics. For a storage facility however, aesthetics might be more important, so you might prefer a commercial garage door opener that is styled to match your brand and acts as a promotion to passing traffic.

Once you have a clear idea about the type of commercial garage door opener you need for your business, then it’s time to talk to the experts to fine tune your selection. Don’t forget to ask about a commercial door repair and installation service as well.
