Architects are prioritizing natural light in their designs to create bright and airy spaces to live and work. Unfortunately, not all commercial structures were built with this in mind. If you’re in a building that leaves you feeling in the dark, there are a few things you can do.

One of the best strategies is to focus on your openings. Adding glass garage doors can be a simple, renovation to quickly brighten your space. Inside, customers and employees get a serotonin boost from natural light. Outside, your business gets a fresh new look that makes for a fabulous first impression

Here are 8 things you should know about glass commercial garage doors:

  1. These doors aren’t just for show. They boost natural light, which can help reduce energy costs, increase productivity, lower stress levels, and improve your overall work environment.

  2. You can customize your door with a variety of styles and sizes, so you can choose one that fits the specific needs of your business.

  3. Commercial doors come with either glass or acrylic panels. Glass used for commercial doors is tempered, which makes it stronger and safer. It's also shatter-resistant, which means that in the event of an impact, the glass will break into small, rounded pieces instead of sharp, jagged shards.

  4. Frames can be made from a variety of materials such as aluminum, or steel, which offer different levels of strength and style.

  5. You can add different types of glazing to your door, including tempered, insulated, frosted, and low-E or energy-efficient. You can choose from several of these options to tailor your privacy and light control.

  6. Insulated garage doors are available, which can help maintain a comfortable temperature in your business, reduce noise levels, and improve energy efficiency.

  7. Like standard doors, glass panel doors require regular maintenance, like cleaning and lubrication, to ensure they continue to function properly and look their best.

  8. This type of door can be a bit more costly, but it offers a unique and modern look that adds value to your property.

Glass commercial garage doors are a great option for businesses looking to modernize their appearance and improve the work environment for employees and customers. With the right style, size, and frame material, they can provide the perfect design and functionality that you’re looking for. Just be sure to consider the type of glass, insulation, and maintenance requirements before making your final decision.
