Aluminum SA6000 Overhead Doors

aluminum sa6000 full

Steel-Craft Aluminum SA6000 overhead doors mix smart design with lightweight construction. The SA6000 design has no vertical stiles, sightlines are clean and the look is contemporary.

  • Thermoclear® lites deliver maximum visibility and high light transmission, helping to brighten large shops and work bays.
  • Custom extruded rails and stiles make for very strong doors, and our engineering and leading-edge manufacturing processes add further strength. Intermediate and bottom vinyl weather stripping and rails help the door to function well in harsh climates.

Note: The glazing material (Thermoclear®) used is ideal for humid environments, however it differs from glass in that it's not sealed, therefore condensation may form in the cellular walls when interior/exterior temperatures are such that dew point temperatures are created (usually in periods of cooler weather). This condensation usually disappears when warmer weather returns.
