Exclamation

I have been trying to locate a manufacture/distributor of a 4 x 6 metal rollup door for my garage. I have been unsucessiful locally in my area.

Any input or advise would be appreciated.

Thank you

Mike

I beleive what you are looking for is called a "rolling steel" door. They have an internal spring and wind up around a drum above the header. They a commonly used in commercial applications, so I would be looking in the yellow pages for your area. Good luck

4X6?? I understand the "4", maybe, but why "6"?? Unless you're extremely short or just enjoy bumping yor head, "6" just makes no sense.

Roll ups can get expensive fast. I would check with self storage dealers. The more units they have the bettor are your chances they will have some in stock for replacemant or will be ordering some. Roll ups for the size you are wanting are targeted for storage units and are made of a thinner gauge steel. Most door companys will have to order a heavier ga. If you dont have any luck with the storage places reply to your post and I will put you in touch with some manufactures and you can check for dealers in your area. Let me ask you though do you want a roll up because youre garage is finished and you dont want a track running back or is youre head room restricted? are you trying to save money by going with a roll up? I once cut a hole in the sheet rock the width of the door and ran the track up in the rafters so the door would pass over the sheet rock and be in the ceiling when open. I used trim around the opening and most people never noticed what happend(freind of mine). If you are trying to go the save money route for a golf cart door, you can find damaged panels at a local dealer and salvage the interior end pieces you need to cut the door down to size, work over the outside door, paint it, throw a bathroom scale under it to see how much it weighs. buy some extension springs for about $20 bucks and voila you have a rollup! I used to have a pile of removed doors that I let anyone take anything since it was cheaper than loading doors and tracks and hauling to the dump. Some times I type slower than my brain is thinking(as stated in my last post)so feel free to email me if I dont quite get where you are going!

For some reason the email is turned off so youcan email me at mitretnuh@aol.com

The 4' x 6' roll up steel doors are common and becomming more common. I don't know where you live, but Menards carry them in stock, and so does UBC They are becomming very popular. Run about $400 and easy to install. UBC just got a web site. don't know what it is but http://www.ubc.com may be it. Home Depot will probably be carrying them soon.

I see you live in NW Arizona. Are you near Lake Havasau.
Please let me know. My best friend is building there now, and he could find one for you very quickly.

Thumbs up 4 x 6 roll up door for storage shed

Jack,

I am located in Kingman Arizona, approx. 50 miles from Lake Havasu.

Would appreciate any input on a source as I still have not been very sucessiful. Most shops in our area do not carry them and they quote my prices from 6 to 8 hundred because they say it must be custom made and shipped in from out of town.

Have a great day

Mike

Here is my e-mail onthept@valleytel.net
About $400 maybe a little less, and some shipping. Probably $100.00 I can have one shippid to you within 1 day. I would send you a photo if I had your e-mail address. You will absolutely love them. Great for riding lawn mowers, golf carts, or just anything. Yes, no snow in Arizona. 25 below here this morning and supposed to get colder. maybe I should build in Arizona this winter. My brother is heading there in two weeks for two months.

Jack,

I believe I found a local distributor here in Arizona which should reduce the cost. Appreciate your research and information.

Thanks

Good for you. I got your e-mail so will send you a photo of the door anyway. I was wrong on the price, it was $200 not $400. I had forgot we bought 2 of them. My apology.
