Doors

Gable-end track door (or “slider”):

More economical than an eave door;

  • Ceiling and door clearance the same;
  • Can be built to half the width of the building;

Eave-wall track door:

  • May be more expensive than a gable-end door;
  • May require larger posts, double posts, and larger pads on each side;
  • Requires a beam (either plates of steel I-beam or wood depending on size and span);
  • Clearance is reduced by the height of the beam or platesĀ 

Overhead doors:

  • 8′ high or under falls under the residential category; over 8′ high a commercial grade door is necessary and has a higher price;
  • Require additional headroom (16″ to 24″ depending on size and type);
  • Many benefits including potential for remote operation, better weather seal (for workshops)
