Choosing a High Wind Garage Door

In different geographic areas, the weather can be brutally cold and windy. When choosing a garage door for a home in these areas, you must start by checking the building codes to ensure the door has the proper requirements. Doors for these areas must have stronger reinforcements and a sturdier build.

Think about investing in our Windstorm Collection. They provide a high protection against the fierce wind and also preserve the design aspect, maintaining beautiful craftsmanship and stylish design. These are great investments for vacation / rental property owners, as they will be able to protect their investment and also rest assured that the garage door simply needs to lock to be secure. You will be able to find a door that fits all your needs!

For your high wind doors, look to Overhead Door Northland.

A New Twist on a Classic

Steel Garage Doors

Many home renovations focus on the interior of the home rather than the exterior. When homeowners decide to give the outside of their home a face-lift, they tend to think of landscaping and house paint. Garage Doors can make a huge difference to the look of your home.

Steel doors for your garage are a great way to add style to the outside of your home. A copper door paired with the natural wood or stone on the outside of your home is simply stunning (Shown Above). Or a silver steel door with a painted backdrop is also beautiful to behold.

For your steel door installation, look to Overhead Door Northland.

Choosing a Garage Door For Your Home

Great Garage Door Options

When searching for the right garage door for your house, it’s common to get overwhelmed. There are a lot of styles and materials in which you can choose from. To help out with this decision, we’ve compiled a few explanations and options that can work with a myriad of homes.

  1. Steel Doors: When selecting the right door for your garage, steel is an excellent option. Invented by Overhead Door in 1923, steel garage doors are the most popular choice for residential garage doors. Mainly because they are available in a number of styles and require very minimal maintenance.
  2. Fiberglass Garage Doors: Our fiberglass doors have a molded fiberglass surface over the insulated steel door. The result is a garage door that performs similar to a steel door but has the appearance of wood. You get low maintenance and high thermal efficiency. Perfect for these winter months!

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need a garage door repair!

Protecting Your Warehouse from Extreme Weather

Tips for Protecting Your Warehouse

A warehouse can go from efficient to frenzy with a strong gust of wind or heavy rainfall. Due to dock doors being wide enough to fit a freight truck, there is plenty of opportunity for the elements to negatively affect your space. Rather than subject your employees and merchandise to damage, here are a few ways you can prevent it.

  • First prepare your deck for any kind of weather by making sure all maintenance has been kept up.
  • Then advise your staff to dress accordingly. If the weather is warm, dress in lighter layers; and if cold add layers to their outfit. Be aware of any significant weather changes and keep merchandise and employees from the doors as much as possible.
  • To completely secure your warehouse, install seals and shelters to your warehouse opening.

At the Overhead Door Company of the Northland, we provide the best seals and shelters and can install them for you. For additional information contact us at (952)888-1944.

Securing Your Stand from the Outside In

Securing the Premises

While you might think your business stand is safe from thieves because it is such a small place, think again. Sometimes thieves believe it will be an easier place to hit. Here are some security measures you can take to ensure your business is locked-up tight.

  • Install Security Cameras – Cameras can act like a deterrent since thieves will not want to be captured on footage.
  • Upgrade Your Doors – After a few years your doors, especially counter doors can become unreliable. Replace them with sturdier counter doors to make it difficult for those trying to break in.
  • Invest in a Safe – For days when you cannot go to the bank or keep documents secure, buy a safe you can hide. Depending on the type of safe and where it is placed, your insurance company may reimburse you the cost.

Choosing the Right Leveler for Your Dock

Types of Dock Levelers

There are many types of dock levelers on the market. Choosing one depends on freight, vehicles, frequency of use, and the loading conditions it will face every day. Here are the different types and what conditions they work best in:

  • Edge-of-Dock – This leveler is mounted to the outside of the loading dock and is more economical but has a limited weight and size capacity.
  • Pit Style – A pit style is great for demanding docking applications. They can carry bigger capacities and adapt better.
  • Vertical Storing – This leveler is great for food or where temperature and environmental control is a concern. It works to keep out pests and maintain the right temperature.
