Roll Up Doors Direct Offers Easy-To-Install and Maintain Roll Up
Roll Up Doors Direct provides its
customers with an array of self-storage roll-up doors to choose from. Why do
we prefer to offer the roll up door compared to other types?
Roll Up Doors: What Are They and What Are The Mechanics That Go Into
These are a rolling steel curtain
affixed to a barrel, which curl around it when raised up. These doors are
typically found in a wider size than the swing doors.
You can use both roll up doors
and swing doors in a home, warehouse, shed, barn, workshop, we tend to err
on the side of caution and go with the roll up doors. The reason is that the
roll up doors is ideal for units with a 5’0” or wider width. In fact, users
are more partial to the larger size doors, as it makes getting into and out
of the unit easier.
There are several important parts
that come with the third-generation roll up doors; parts that make it easy
for you to install and easy to maintain.
This is a rod that goes through the barrel and into the bracket. Today’s
doors are created with either a dead axle design or a live axle design. With
a dead axle design, the axle stays static. With a live axle design, the axle
will rotate when the door is moving up or down. We offer a dead axle design,
eradicating the need for pushing so that there is a straighter travel path
for the door curtain in the guides. It also ensures a better support for
equal concurrent spring adjustment.
This is the round/tube part found at the top of the door, and ensures a
level process for the door curtain to twist/roll up on.
This device is put into the door guides and is affixed to the barrel drum
This is made of 26 gauge, grade 80 full-hard steel, which provides you with
the best strength to lessen the chances for door damage. They can be found
in more than 20 colors and galvanized metal finishes. A barrel that’s
designed well can protect the axle, drums and springs because they’re
These are 18-gauge steel structures that are roll formed, running the door
height. It is home to the door curtain while moving, and is affixed right to
the door posts.
This apparatus will adjust the tension on the spring. If you’ve got a
two-spring door, the tensioner will adjust on both springs at the same time.
Your door width will dictate if your doors will have one or two springs. All
our springs come pre-lubricated (an extremely sought out feature). The
grease will get into the springs’ pores, eliminating the moisture and
reducing the possibility of corrosion or rust. It also helps to ease the
friction that can occur between the spring coils. Thus, allowing for a
While our self-storage doors can
take less than five minutes to install, it’s still a good idea to hire a
professional installer to do this task for you because of the ever-changing
site conditions. Since we have established a good working relationship with

installation process. You can also find installation videos and manuals at
How To Care For Your Doors
When it comes to maintenance of
your self-storage doors, the springs will be the most common upkeep you’ll
contend with. After all, as the springs age, they become relaxed, which
means you need to periodically adjust them to ensure the doors stays in good
Since our doors have the more
desirable dead axle design, which helps with spring tension disbursement
throughout the springs, the door will hardly need to be repaired. With
applied tension being equally distributed to the springs, the lifespan of
each one is maintained – and, in the end, the door as well.
Other door manufacturers suggest
lubricating the springs upon installation. However, with the
third-generation design we offer, the factory lubricates them for you. We
know that rust can form at any time, not just at installation. With early
lubrication, we reduce the possibility for corrosion, rust and spring
maintenance. It’s a good idea to check the door’s tension to ensure it’s
operating at its best. When checking the tension, you’ll need to bring the
door up and down.

REMEMBER: SAFETY FIRST! Anyone who has above average mechanical skills and is able to follow detailed yet easy to read instructions, should be able to safely install sectional garage doors with extension springs or the "simple set torsion spring system". Standard torsion spring doors should always be installed by a professional. Since we have no way of knowing your skills, we recommend all overhead doors be installed by a professional.
