Special Features: Commercial Door Sectional Replacement after forklift damage.
Installation Details: When we arrived on site our client’s commercial sectional door had came off track when a forklift ran into the bay door. We see this quite often when the dock door or bay door isn’t fully opened. That is why a commercial opener is always recommended, when the door is up it stays up and when the door is down it stays down; a simple yet effective solution. If this solution is something you believe you may need contact us here.
Once on site the technicians inspected the door carefully because one wrong move and tension could come off the door. Our technicians noted the panels were an older Overhead Door style commercial panel and the in stock Amarr 2402 would get our client’s door back on track with a few panels replaced. Once we had the panels in hand our technicians began the repair and replaced the damaged hardware such as: hinges, rollers, and cables caused by the trauma to the door along with the damaged panels. If a sectional door comes off track like this these additional repairs tend to be needed due to the stress put on to the hinges bending and being pulled out of place.
A trained technician can vary the style and model of a panel from: stamping or labeling on the side of the panel, specific hardware used, or by the commercial sectionals exterior panel design. All brands that carry commercial ribbed panels have different spacing between their ribbing which can be verified onsite with measurements.
As you can see the panels from this Amarr 2402 and old overhead door brand are slightly different in their aesthetic appearance but in most cases what really counts on a commercial job is functionality and safety; and that is exactly what we delivered. At Grease Monkey Garage Door we strive to bring efficient, safe, and honest service to each and all of our commercial and residential clients.
Our Product Review: From an installation stand point the Amarr 2402 is a great door for retrofit and service applications because of the common tongue and groove joint system used in many commercial doors. However, the existing door had a shiplap joint system so a shiplap conversion retainer must be added to allow the new Amarr 2402 to seat properly. This specific Amarr commercial panel is usually installed in spec warehouses that will be used for distribution centers or supply house.
The Amarr 2402 like the numerical name states is”24″ for 24 gauge steel door, 0 for non-insulated or single layer, and “2” for 2″ thick. Most commercial dock doors, warehouse doors, bay doors, and overhead doors will be 24 gauge. Every so often we find our team runs into an old 20 gauge steel door such as in Phoenix, AZ. The stiles on this commercial panel are riveted at the top and bottom and can be moved to align with the existing panels stiles for a quick an easy replacement.
This commercial door line also offers a 2-layer steel panel with polystyrene insulation and a 3-layer steel panel with a R Value insulation perfect for climate controlled or refrigerated buildings. You can also have this door with optional high lift or vertical lift track to minimize the amount of rear overhead space consumed by door track.
