A Heavy Duty Industrial Shutter Door is perfect for use in an auto dealership, a flower shop, a jeweler, a pawn shop, a taxidermist, a funeral home or any other commercial establishment that has a lot of valuable inventory. Here is how to use one in your own home: First of all, if you have a really big house or a home with a particularly large garage, you may not even need this type of door. However, if your house is smaller or if your garage is on the smaller side, you will need to install a Heavy Duty Industrial Shutter Door. To begin with, you will need to remove the decorative cover that is usually affixed to the outside of the door. Once you do this, you will see that the door has two sections of wood that are hinged together. Next, you will need to remove the interior rod that keeps the door in place. You can either do this yourself or you can have a handyman do it for you. Once the rod is removed, the door will be free-standing and you can raise it up and move it to the side of your garage or home. Make sure you do this so you have plenty of clearance because once the door is up and operating, it will be raised all the way to the top of the opening. 


Answer: That depends on what you need it for. A standard roller door is designed for light commercial use, with a 3/4″ thick insulated door made of steel. If you need something more durable, consider a wood or metal vertical sliding door. A good rule of thumb is if you can buy it at a hardware store, it’s not a door that needs to be custom made. Just make sure it’s a standard model that will fit your application.

A heavy duty industrial door is much stronger than a regular residential door. This allows you to use heavier than normal deadlifts when you install it. Also, it helps to prevent children, pets, and other random “characters” from gaining access to your home or place of business.

It depends on what kind of shutter door you have. If it’s a louvered one (like the one in the photo) then you simply open and close the slats as desired. If it’s a solid one, you should remove the door from the frame and set it aside. Next, remove the little metal bar that holds the windowpane in place and set that aside also. Then, take a flat-head screwdriver and carefully pry up the bar holding the windowpane in place. Remove that and set it aside. Next, remove the three remaining metal bars and set them aside. Now, put a narrow length of steel wool or a ball point pen into the space between the window and the frame and push and pull and prod and twist and work the steel wool or pen around until you’ve dislodged the dirt, dust, and lint that has collected over the years. When you’re finished, replace all of the bars and screws and give the whole thing a good cleaning. Reattach the door and rehang it so it closes properly.

A “standard” commercial door will weigh approximately three to five pounds. A “heavy duty” industrial door will weigh anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds. Also, a standard door has two hinges (one at each side) while a heavy duty door has four hinges (two on each side).
