Our customer, Antonio, had a very large building built for all the vehicles he owns.
Once construction on the building was finished, the last step was to install large metal garage doors to close in the building and provide adequate environmental protection to Antonio’s vehicles. The doors will also provide security for the valuable property inside.
The opening we had to work with was 10 feet wide by 14 feet high. That’s a BIG space! It isn’t challenging to find doors this size, however Antonio wanted doors that didn’t look too commercial. Ideally, he wanted garage doors that had the same look and feel of residential garage doors.
In addition, Antonio he wanted as much natural light coming into the building as possible, however he did NOT want all glass garage doors either.
Basically, he wanted a residential garage door with a window panel but in a size generally reserved for commercial garage doors.
The end result was these beautiful 24 gauge garage doors, with upper window panels.
We were able to add more natural light by adding two panels worth of windows instead of 1, which still look great since the doors are so tall.
Check out just how big these are as compared to our installer!
Garage Door Opener Installation
In addition to the new doors, we also installed 2 LiftMaster 8500 Jack shaft garage door openers.
The jack shaft opener installs on the wall instead of the ceiling for extra height in the garage. Paired with high lift tracks, you can get the garage doors almost flush with the ceiling to allow for maximum clearance.
The garage door openers are quiet, and have a battery backup so they will still open even if the power goes out. They also include WiFi connectivity so Antonio can open and close the doors from a tablet or smartphone.
This installation wasn’t easy, but it came out perfect and everyone is happy with the results!
