There was a time when you had to open the front door and walk inside to see if seats were available or if people were having a good time at a local bar or restaurant. That is no longer the case; glass garage doors are now popular at many eateries and for a variety of other commercial uses.
Let the Light Shine In
It’s obvious that a glass door will let the natural light in. Sunlight provides a more pleasant atmosphere than artificial light, and it also reduces the need for indoor lighting, thus saving energy costs. We know that glass doors might not have the insulation values you would get from a polyurethane garage door or an aluminum storefront, but we can meet most local energy codes by providing insulated glass, stiles and rails. We also meet the recent International Energy Conservation Code for air infiltration requirements.
Glass Looks Good
Glass doesn’t rust or corrode, it’s reasonably easy to keep clean, and we note that the aluminum material supporting the glass is available in 200 powder-coated colors plus various shades of bronze. Additionally, you can decorate glass doors with company logos and important information—or get creative with patterns and designs that make your business more inviting to potential clients and customers.
A strong glass garage door will help keep intruders out when a business is closed for the night. It will also discourage break-ins because law enforcement officers and others who pass by will be able to see burglars inside the business.
