New Insulation Options for Industrial and Commercial Facilities

With temperatures dropping nationwide, it’s the time of year when industrial and commercial facility operators become concerned with thermal efficiency, especially if they run a climate-controlled facility. Even when a building has an efficient envelope, the weakest points are usually large entry spaces.

At Overhead Door, we understand the demands of large facility owners and operators, so we’ve made it a point to provide our customers with a product line-up that features the best thermal performance values on the market. With the introduction of the Stormtite AP model 627 rolling steel door and the Thermacore® AP model 850 commercial sectional door, we did just that.

The Stormtite AP 627 offers the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major U.S. manufacturer of insulated rolling steel doors, with an R-value of 10.9, a U-value of 0.09 and a tested installed U-factor of 0.84. The Model 627 door also minimizes air transfer, reduces operating costs and surpasses International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requirements.


But don’t take our word for it. This door system just won first place in Architectural Products Magazine’s annual Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) in the windows/doors/openings category and this is what the judges had to say, “Get these in every business park in North America.”

If you’re looking for sectional door with maximum thermal efficiency, the Thermacore® AP model 850 insulated door from Overhead Door is the perfect choice.  Featuring the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major U.S. manufacturer – an R-value of 26, U-value of .038 and a third party tested installed U-factor of .14 –  the Thermacore® AP model 850 is a 3-inch-thick insulated sectional door that is not only one of the most thermally efficient doors on the market, but strong too. It’s an ideal choice when extreme heat, cold, durability and ease of maintenance are primary concerns.

Facility owners will also be glad to know that both door systems come ready with a number of options to meet individual application needs.
