This page will be delving more into a general overview of how we install Sectional Overhead Doors for commercial use:


The Planning Stages

Before starting the installation process, BDS carefully assess the requirements of the project. We consider factors such as the size and type of door, the available space, and expected traffic flow. All tools needed like a tape measure, level, power drill, screws, brackets, tracks, hinges, and a sectional door opener will be ready for use.

To begin the project, we prepare the opening where the sectional overhead door will be installed. It is essential that the opening is clean, level, and free from any obstructions. A Door Engineer will then measure the opening to determine the dimensions for the door panels.


Starting the Installations

The installation begins with the horizontal and vertical tracks along the sides of the opening. Every professional door engineer should use a level to ensure they are straight and properly aligned. The brackets are then attached securely to the tracks and are spaced out evenly.

Following this, the door panels are carefully installed one by one, starting from the bottom. The panels are connected using the provided hinges and fasten them securely to the tracks. It is absolutely vital to the project to make sure the panels are aligned and level throughout.

After this, the torsion springs are installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. These springs help counterbalance the weight of the door and assist in smooth operation. Attach the lift cables to the bottom brackets and the torsion springs.


Finishing the Sectional Overhead Doors Installation

If desired, BDS can install a sectional door opener to automate the opening and closing of the door. We will install the opener securely and connect it to the door assembly for the specific opener model.

After this, the installation is complete and the BDS team can test the door’s operation and overall functionality. This starts as basic as opening and closing the door multiple times to ensure it moves smoothly along the tracks. Check that the safety features, such as the auto-reverse mechanism, are functioning correctly.


Aftercare after we install Sectional Overhead Doors

After installation, it is essential to perform regular maintenance to keep the sectional overhead door in optimal condition. This includes lubricating the moving parts, inspecting and adjusting the springs and cables, and checking the safety features.

If you are unsure about any aspect of the installation process or encounter any difficulties, it is recommended to seek professional assistance. BDS installers have the expertise and experience to deal with any potential problems which may crop up during a doors lifespan.
