    The quality of all our commercial & industrial garage door hardware is exceptional. Still, a choice must be made depending on the degree of sturdiness required and the number of daily open/close cycles.


    Here are some recommended typical systems:

     

    Our sturdiness scale

     

    Hardware: Light Duty
    • 14-gauge steel tracks and mounting brackets*
    • Pull rope
    • Single hinges
     
    Heavy Duty
    • 13-gauge steel tracks and mounting brackets*
    • Pull chain
    • Single or double hinges
     
    Super Heavy Duty
    • 12-gauge steel tracks and mounting brackets*
    • Pull chain or chain hoist
    • Single or double hinges
    • Reinforcement bars
     

     

    * The lower the gauge number, the thicker the steel.


    The spring acts as a counterweight to facilitate the opening of the door. Choosing a spring depends mainly on the daily number of open/close cycles your door will undergo.

     

     

    Springs: Light Duty
    • 10,000-cycle springs
     
    Heavy Duty
    • 25,000- to 100,000-cycle springs
     
    Super Heavy Duty
    • Springs for over 100,000 cycles
