Commercial Overhead Door Installation in Edmonton

Commercial overhead door installation involves the setup and assembly of large, often industrial-grade, overhead doors in various commercial and industrial settings. These doors are commonly used in warehouses, loading docks, factories, retail stores, and other businesses where secure access and efficient movement of goods are essential. Installing commercial overhead doors is a specialized task that requires careful planning, skilled labour, and adherence to safety and building code regulations.

What you can expect with Abe's Door™ Service Ltd.

Site Assessment and Planning:

We conduct a thorough installation site assessment to determine the specific requirements and constraints. Based on the application and business needs, we determine the type of door needed, its dimensions, and features (e.g., insulated, non-insulated, sectional, rolling steel).

Acquisition of Materials and Equipment:

The materials, components, and equipment are acquired, including the overhead door, tracks, springs, panels, rollers, hinges, and any associated hardware. Safety equipment, tools, and machinery required for installation are also prepared.

Preparation of the Opening:

Our technicians prepare the opening where the overhead door will be installed, ensuring it is level, plumb, and structurally sound. If necessary, any existing door or components are removed.

Assembly and Installation:

The overhead door components get assembled according to the manufacturer’s specifications, including attaching panels, hinges, and rollers. Our technicians install the tracks and springs to allow the door to move smoothly and safely.

Electrical Work (if applicable):

If the overhead door is motorized, we will perform electrical work to install the motor, wiring, controls, and safety sensors. The electrical system gets tested to ensure proper functionality.

Balancing and Adjustment:

The door is carefully balanced to ensure it opens and closes evenly and without undue stress on the components. Adjustments are made to the spring tension, tracks, and other elements for optimal performance.

Safety Checks:

Safety features like photo-eye sensors and emergency release mechanisms are installed and tested to ensure they function correctly.

Testing and Final Inspection:

Technicians complete a thorough test for proper operation of the installed overhead door. This testing includes opening and closing cycles, noise levels, and safety functions. They will also conduct a final inspection to verify that the installation meets safety and building code standards.


Our technicians will train users on the safe operation and maintenance of the overhead door.

Cleanup and Site Restoration:

Any debris, packaging materials, or equipment used during installation get removed from the site. Our technicians clean the area after the installation and perform minor repairs or touch-ups as needed.
