A rolling steel door protects a commercial building against theft and harsh weather, just to name a few benefits. This style features metal pieces that roll up into a barrel at the top of the door frame. Since rollup doors don't have the cables, tracks, wheels and hinges that sectional doors have, they don't require as much maintenance. Rollup doors also don't take up as much space as sectional doors.
Our team at Cookson offers custom-made doors to meet your exact specifications. Explore the different types of rollup garage doors below.
A rollup security door is a cost-effective way to bring airflow inside while keeping a building safe from theft. The curtains — the metal slats that make up the door — can be any color or pattern you desire. Rollup security doors have sturdy materials with few parts, making installation and maintenance easy over time. This type of door is suitable for any area of your commercial property.
Cookson offers high-security rollup doors for superior protection against theft and vandalism. They're also durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. Our doors stand up to daily use and can have a lifespan of about 50,000 cycles before you need to repair them. This style provides more clearance in areas that don't have a lot of headroom. It comes in motorized, hand-crank or push-up operations.
With custom options, you can create the rollup security door of your dreams that is also the best fit for your application. Consider these features as you design your door:

Weather-resistant rollup doors give you peace of mind when there's a storm in the forecast. These doors typically feature insulation and wind-rated products that can withstand heavy winds. If you live in an area that experiences hurricanes or other harsh weather conditions regularly, consider upgrading your rollup garage door and using insulation, weatherstripping and impact glass for your door.
With our StormDefender® rollup doors, you can turn your esteemed commercial building into a strong storm shelter during emergencies. They stay hidden until you need to use them and will continue to work even if you lose power. Since we manufacture these products ourselves, we can customize them to fit your company's needs.
You can use these shutter doors in any commercial location with safety requirements, including:
Our doors meet all safety requirements for tornado and hurricane protection, including International Code Council (ICC) 500 code and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) P-361 Third-Edition code standards. Whether you need to follow these regulations or want to provide a safer environment for your employees and guests, you can install these easily in any commercial facility.
These doors protect your building from positive and negative wind pressures of at least 300 PSF and remain resilient when hit by flying objects. We've also added fire-rating factors to your door to further comply with safety regulations and give you total peace of mind.
Fire-rated rollup doors prevent the spread of fire in a building due to their fire-resistant materials and ability to detect fire. This type of door will close automatically if there's a fire in the building so that smoke and flames don't spread to different parts of the building. A fire-rated door features heavy-duty galvanized steel and fire-resistant insulation. Even though this type of door is helpful in case of an emergency, you can use it for your commercial building during any part of the day as long as it's not in the path of egress.
Our Thermiser® rolling doors are energy-efficient and secure due to their foamed-in-place insulation and galvanized steel construction. They have our patented door perimeter sealing system around them to protect your commercial building against harsh weather conditions and extreme temperatures. The insulation also reduces sound transfer, giving your employees and customers privacy.
Our doors can withstand an operational wind load of 20 PSF, and, like our other doors, we can customize yours for you. In terms of performance, the Thermiser® can withstand 20 cycles a day, or 50,000 cycles in a lifetime. You can also choose a powder coating that enhances your commercial building's design aesthetic.
