What is the difference between steel overhead doors and polycarbonate overhead doors?

Steel overhead doors are the most commonly used overhead door and come in a wide range of panel designs, insulation and price options. They can be insulated or non-insulated depending on purpose of usage. Thicker multi-layered doors provide greater durability, impact-resistance and thermal insulation.

Polycarbonate overhead doors are made out of a lighter see-through material. Their translucent multi-walled structure makes them strong yet lightweight and provides an excellent thermal insulation, reducing winter heating costs due to solar heat gain. They are a great choice for maximizing natural light in your building. Polycarbonate overhead doors are extremely impact and weather resistant, long lasting and retain their brand new look for a long time. Often polycarbonate doors are used for agricultural, commercial, institutional or industrial purposes but they are also suitable as residential garage doors to give a stylish contemporary look and feel to your garage for years to come.
