What is a Rolling Steel Door?

A rolling steel door is a coiling door that's typically used in commercial and industrial applications - from warehouses and loading docks to freight terminals and distribution centers. They're constructed of galvanized steel slats that interlock to form one strong and continuous curtain. These interlocking steel slats increase the durability of the door's curtain with enhanced strength and protection.

A full-line of rolling steel doors includes a wide variety of models, ranging from service doors, insulated service doors, fire rated doors, fire rated shutters, counter shutters and rolling grilles. Each model in the product line encompasses structural integrity and durability.

Available in a wide variety of models, sizes and colors, rolling steel doors can be customized to fit virtually any commercial or industrial application, building code or design need. We've listed some of these customization opportunities below.


Customizable to Fit Specific Applications, Building Codes and Exact Design Needs

SIZES | Rolling steel doors are available in a wide variety of sizes and can even be manufactured to close oversized opening. You can find rolling steel doors in sizes up to 40' wide and 30' high. 

POWDER COATING | Applied as a dry powder and baked onto the door's surface to form a thick and even layer, powder coating provides a durable finish that will keep your door's surface looking fresh for years to come. You can wave goodbye to scratching, chipping, chalking and fading, powder coated finishes are known for combatting the wear and tear associated with heavy-duty, high-cycle applications.

INSULATION | A rolling steel door's curtain is comprised of steel slats, creating the opportunity for polyurethane insulation. Also known as foam-in-place (FIP) insulation, polyurethane is sprayed into the steel slat where it then expands to fill the entire void with insulation. This eliminates air pockets and is much more effective than polystyrene of the same thickness, creating a better solution for thermal efficiency in climate controlled applications.
