Modern glass and aluminum constructed garage doors are becoming a popular choice for homes, commercial properties, and restaurants. This is because full-view glass doors have an ideal blend of modern style, energy efficiency, and functionality. Operating like typical overhead tuck-away doors, glass garage doors easily store on ceiling tracks. Then, at the end of the day, they provide security by sliding down and locking into place.
The construction of these restaurant garage doors features an aluminum garage door frame fitted with sections of glass. Both the frame and glass are broadly customizable. Most major manufacturers offer the frames in anodization or powder coating in multiple colors to maximize the beauty and durability of the garage doors. Also, faux wood finishes from Douglas Fir to Walnut can be applied for a more natural look.
For the glass sections, you have your choice of both appearance and thickness. This can range from clear glass to tempered panes from 1/8″ to 1″ inch thick. For greater privacy, you can even select tinted, frosted, or etched glass. This broad range of design options makes restaurant glass doors the perfect finishing touch for your business’ bar area, open air dining, or party rental space.
Our technicians at Aaron Overhead Doors have completed two great projects involving patio garage doors for local restaurants. For both jobs, we installed tempered glass overhead doors along the front of the restaurant. In the place of large windows, these glass restaurant garage doors add both functionality and incredible beauty to the spaces. While providing plenty of natural light, overhead glass doors also open up the dining space on warm days. Now, customers don’t have to choose between indoor and outdoor seating. Instead, they can seamlessly blend between both spaces while still enjoying the shade and breeze with these restaurant garage doors.
Still Fire Brewing in Suwanee, GA is a local restaurant and brewery where we installed several of these glass restaurant garage doors. The owner wanted garage doors that would make his restaurant feel open and comfortable while also providing security and reliability. In the end, he chose Arm-R-Lite Titan doors. He knew he could count on an Arm-R-Lite product because they manufacturer the best glass garage doors on the market. They are the best because they hand-weld their aluminum frames and can custom fit a new garage door to any opening.
When it came to the design, he chose a clear anodized frame and clear tempered glass. This provides a clean, seamless appearance that matches the black, gray, and red of his restaurant’s exterior. We also installed a small countertop rolling door for to-go orders. Now his business can operate with the best functionality and convenience while also having striking visual appeal with his new restaurant garage doors.
Paddock Grill is a Braselton, GA eatery with a focus on hometown comfort. The owner contacted us because he wanted restaurant garage doors that would provide his restaurant with a vintage auto repair shop feel. We recommended full-view glass garage doors to achieve this aesthetic and provide plenty of natural light for his dining area. For his restaurant, we ended up installing seven Arm-R-Lite Titan commercial glass doors. Completing the auto repair shop feel, our customer selected dark anodized frames with clear tempered glass.
Full-view glass restaurant garage doors are superior to wide windows because of their movability. As you can see in the interior photo, the overhead doors store neatly out of the way when not in use. In winter months, they lock securely in place, providing both insulating warmth and natural light. During summer, they can be left up open to close, allowing for extra table space and letting in the breeze. Overall, these restaurant garage doors are a great showcase of the combined beauty and serviceability of glass garage doors.
Beyond just commercial sized glass garage doors, we have also installed glass roll-up counter doors for both homes and businesses. These kitchen garage doors function in the same way as a standard garage door, rolling on tracks and fitted with a small torsion spring. Countertop shutters are a great option to connect indoor and outdoor spaces, especially between kitchens and dining areas. For businesses, they function as a window counter or concession door, available in both glass and steel options.
Our technicians installed this 5’x4′ door in Cumming, GA. It is a CHI brand countertop shutter with a black powder coated frame and 1/8″ thick tempered glass. This glass and frame combination along with a lockable door create a strong security boundary. That means this door serves the dual purpose of protecting your home or business while also providing great visual appeal. Now, this family can seamlessly entertain or monitor their children while finishing up dinner or enjoying the air conditioning.
