What to Look for in an Overhead Door

Interested in taking a simple step towards better security for your commercial business? Even if you’ve spent time investing in locks and security cameras, you may be unintentionally letting security measures fall through the cracks by neglecting your overhead door. Most of us don’t pay much attention to our doors until they break, and then curse ourselves for ignoring those loose bolts and weak springs that should have been maintained.

The easiest way to ensure that your assets and employees are protected is with a durable overhead door that shields against weather, theft, and vandalism. At Frontier Pacific, we can ease your mind by giving you the best quality overhead doors for the best deals.

An overhead door can last for decades, so it’s important to take the time to consider your options. Read on to find out what to look for when choosing an overhead door!


Your overhead door can be functional and still fit the design of your space. Maybe you want windows to let natural light spill into your warehouse. If you work in a retail or industrial space, a security grille may be the best option to prevent unwanted entries. To save space, roll-up and sectional overhead doors can be conveniently stored above the doorway. Whatever your needs may be, Frontier Pacific can help you choose the best design for your space to maximize efficiency and match your desired aesthetic.


We offer many different options for materials and styles to fit your needs. Steel is a popular choice that is available in a range of styles and prices. Aluminum is a prime rust-resistant option ideal for humid environments. We also offer styles in wood, or custom iron work for specialized gates.

Locking Mechanism

An overhead door needs a lock to do its job of keeping your warehouse safe. If you share access with trusted others, a keypad locking mechanism with a code is a great option. Alternatively, a standard padlock is an old-school favorite that provides a physical barrier to opening your overhead door. Finally, an electric fail-secure lock will keep your building secure even in the event of a power outage.


Insulated doors can improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs, help control the climate in your space, and muffle the loud sounds of daily operation. The durability of our insulated doors make them ideal for warehouses, heat-sensitive spaces, commercial garages, and firehouses.

A Qualified Installer

Even if you’re a DIY fan, installing an overhead door is something you should hire a professional for. A properly installed door will last longer and require minimal maintenance, allowing you to save money in the long run (and you won’t have nightmares about an improperly installed door coming crashing down).
