Glass Overhead Doors for Restaurants and Bars
These amazingly popular automatic glass sectional “doors” have revolutionized the sidewalk cafe ambiance of Southern California dining – and ADS has been at the forefront.
Many local dining and drinking establishments have been transformed by the addition of floor-to-ceiling motorized overhead glass doors that can in moments raise up to create an open-air dining experience. The basic design is increasingly common in residential garage doors, but has much wider applications, and is also used for partitioned office spaces and entryways, gyms, even car repair services. Modified versions work wonderfully as serving counter windows.
