We know what it takes to complete a project: hard work and a lot of planning. That’s why Overhead Door Corporation has put all its resources for architects and project specifiers into one, easy-to-access location: The Architect’s Corner on OverheadDoor.com. If you are an architect or designer looking to incorporate an Overhead Door sectional or rolling door system into a residential or commercial project, Architect’s Corner offers everything you need for planning and preparation.
Whether you’re using the tool for commercial construction or for a residential home remodel, Architect’s Corner offers technical and resource materials to support your project. Conveniently accessible residential and commercial product information available includes downloadable project specs, architect drawings, compatible openers and operators, BIM project libraries and product brochures.
Online Architect’s Design Manual
For architects who specialize in commercial and industrial applications, our Online Architects Design Manual is a great resource for those who are unsure which Overhead Door collection meets their demands. Simply select the specific door and operator application for your industry, and the tool will recommend the best collection(s) for the project.
Continuing Education Courses
Are you looking to brush up on the latest industry trends and learn about recent enhancements in commercial and residential product lines? In an effort to inform professionals across the architecture and construction industries, we’ve created continuing education courses certified by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Topics include Wind Load Doors Systems, Rolling Door Systems, Fire Door Systems and Commercial Sectional Door Systems.
Because the deadline and project demands facing architects are many, we’ve made access to our continuing education courses easy. Overhead Door offers on-site Lunch-and-Learn sessions that can be scheduled at your office. Additionally, these same, AIA-certified courses are also available online through the Architect’s Corner. Currently available online courses are “An Overview of Commercial Rolling Door Products” and “Upward-Acting Commercial Sectional Door Systems.” You can request an on-site Lunch-and-Learn continuing education session or suggest a new topic on the “Continuing Education” page under the “Resources” within the Architect’s Corner tool.
For specific questions or help determining the doors that match your project needs, you can also contact your local Overhead Door distributor.
