It's no secret that air leaks are common around moving building components such as operable doors and windows. With metal exterior doors, weather stripping is a fast, efficient, and cost effective solution for closing these spaces and preventing any transmission of elements between your building and the outside. No matter which mode of weather stripping you choose for your commercial roll-up doors, they all share three main goals.
3 MAIN GOALS OF WEATHER STRIPPING BUILDING COMPONENTS:
1. KEEPING ENVIRONMENTAL ELEMENTS OUT OF YOUR BUILDING. Some environmental elements that weather stripping is known for protecting against are rain, water, dust, and dirt, but the list goes on. The goal of preventing these elements is to protect your building from things that could degrade or harm your valuable assets.
2. REDUCING ENERGY. To keep your building warm in the winter and cool in the summer, it's critical for climate controlled buildings to invest in insulated doors with added weather stripping options. You don't want your HVAC systems to be doing extra work because of the exposed air pockets around your moving overhead door, costing you more money.
3. KEEPING PESTS OUT. While this is not always the first go-to reason for weather stripping, it's added bonus that pests are unable to crawl into your building from the small gaps in your overhead door.
With an added layer of protection to your metal exterior door, you can keep your commercial building operating most efficiently with cost savings.
