As simple and even generic as glass garage doors may appear at first glance, most installations require research, planning, and even a little engineering to truly meet the needs of the client. This Miramar area gym in San Diego is a textbook example of creating doors that not only satisfied all the functional requirements but mated perfectly with the look and style of the center.
A gymnastics sports facility needs ample but even light, excellent ventilation, and a generous “feel” to space. They also wanted to create an outdoor entrance that would be used as a relaxed waiting area for parents of young athletes.
The selection of glass garage doors was a natural one, but it came with a list of challenges:
- A custom color that would integrate the doors with the hand-painted logo along the entrance wall and building trim – plus match the team colors for the ownerʼs favorite ice hockey team, the San Jose Sharks.
- Powder-coated tracks and hardware to match the custom color of the door.
- Careful coordination with the building contractor to precisely fit the doors in the custom openings cut in the concrete wall.
- Identify all the technical requirements that had to be met before the doors could be fully operational.
The result: Glass Garage Doors that are simple, clean, and fully integrated into the centerʼs facade. Mechanically, the matching doors are raised with automatic door openers and have special security and safety features built-in.
