Rolling doors and rolling slat doors look similar from far away but up close the two are very different. “Sheet doors have a continuous connection of horizontal members acting as a solid curtain. Slat doors comprise interlocking slats. Guides for sheet doors are light-gauge metal; slat door guides are structural steel angles” (Barry Allen). Rolling sheet doors are mostly used in commercial jobs and rolling slat doors are mostly used for heavy uses.
