Before diving head first into the purchase of a new garage or industrial door, do make a note to re-check the area and your own capabilities. An overhead door st. louis installation is great when you can get it but consider this for a moment. What if, on the average, both you and your workshop staff are really short fellows? And the overhead height, the space where your new door will sit when open, is at least a foot or so out of reach of your collective fingers.
That is not going to help much now is it. It would not have been practical to always have a step ladder to hand just so that you can open the frigging door. No, consider your circumstances, your abilities, and also take into account what kind of work you are doing. The door must not infringe on your immediate property and work rates. And you and your materials mustn’t get in the door’s way either.
It’s true. You might think that people here are taking the side of a door. No, not at all, there are security and risk management implications to take into account. Just one mishap or slight inconvenience is all it takes to cause an accident. It could get dangerous out there. Now, once you have had the right door installed, it doesn’t end there. Apart from being opened and closed so often, the door, overhead or otherwise, is going to be exposed to the elements.
