Our on-site representative will walk you through product types, sizes, and most importantly, perform field measurements to ensure your new door is the proper size and components are suited for your specific job conditions.

    Why a Heavy Duty Sectional Door?

    Heavy duty sectional doors provide the perfect degree of temperature control, protection and safety - no matter what your organization requires. In most industrial spaces, collisions between forklifts and doors are common. A heavy duty sectional door provides breakaway construction that gives in both direction and can easily be reset by team members.

    Heavy duty sectional doors from Central State Door Service are available with polyurethane and polystyrene insulation, or with no insulation.

  • Safety Accessories


    For both the safety of your crew and the protection of your assets, maintaining security in your facility is an important goal. Too often, garage doors represent the weakest link in an organization’s security posture.

    SAFETY NOTICE standard safety devices on electrically powered doors require routine inspections from qualified technicians to ensure proper operation. To learn more about approved UL325 safety devices that can reduce the risk of workplace injury, contact us for a FREE safety assessment and no obligation proposal.

Just a note to the general manager. I had new springs installed of my two garage doors last week. A spring on each of the doors failed and had to be replaced. Your technician Mike M. checked the problem and told me what had to be done and within an hour or so completed the installation and made sure both doors operated properly and safely. Mike was courteous, efficient and knew what he was doing. He did an excellent job and could not have been a better representative for your company. Employees like him are a key reason why we always have been a customer of your company.

- Fran F.

Just wanted to let you know that your guy, Vince was out at my house yesterday to work on my door and I was very impressed with how thorough he was. I thought he would just grease a few things and head out, but he took the time to fix all of the mechanical issues and get the door working more efficiently than the day it was put in. Thanks again.

- R Hughes

Recently, your company installed a new garage door system at my house in Carlisle and serviced existing doors at my building in downtown Harrisburg. Marty and Randy have been very professional in their respective roles. More importantly though was the service your technicians provided. They are skilled at their work and pleasant to deal with which unfortunately has become too rare today. I will certainly refer people to your company. Thank you.

- J Male

Angie, I appreciate you're getting back to me.  After being in business my entire life,  it is great to see some professionalism still exists.  As a retired CEO I have 6 Peer groups at The High Family Business Center so I really appreciate your immediate response to our concern.  Thank you again, I would be glad to meet you and your staff sometime in the future.

I have used Central State for all my garage door needs for almost 20 years and their quality of service is second to none. Zach arrived yesterday to install an new garage door opener. His professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to excellence were very evident from the moment he arrived until he finished the job. He exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend Central State and in particular, Zach for all garage door and opener needs. I really appreciate the excellent work Zach did and the quality product Central State provided.

I am having a lot of repairs done at my home and just wanted to let you know that the gentlemen, Zack who left my home was polite, courteous, quick, and did a great job.

I just wanted to thank you for the work that Cory and Todd completed yesterday. It looks good and the garage doors open and close so much more smoothly now. Please make sure to pass on my compliments to them and share this with their supervisors.

Cory and Todd were both very well-spoken and explained things carefully, which (to me) reflected professionalism. They kept me in the loop in terms of what they were doing and updating me with the progress. They presented me with a couple of items so that I could make a decision, which allowed them to proceed from there. I do appreciate Cory and Todd taking the time to include me in the process. They also had a couple of ideas to help me extend the life of my current garage doors as well as maintaining the new openers and springs installed. I am quite pleased with the overall experience.

Also, thanks for doing a thorough a job in terms of examining the overall items that needed to be replaced, installed, or improved. I have already spoken to a neighbor who inquired about new garage door openers for his home. I don't know if (or when) he may contact you but the work did not go unnoticed.

Thanks for a pleasant and positive experience.

- Don S.

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Alan for helping Sue and I to select a new garage door. We are very pleased with the door. It enhances our home and will look even better once our new siding is installed. The gentlemen who installed the door, Tom was very nice and very professional. Thank you again. We will recommend you and Central State to our friends and neighbors.

- C. Beckley

Thank you so much for coming out the same day. I really appreciate you making me feel so safe!

- M Kanerson

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know we are very happy with the garage doors. The difference between the new doors/equipment compared to the old is unbelievable.

- Fred D.

Great Job Vince! It works better than ever.

- Milt

Sales - Alan visited my home twice and was very professional, knew his product extremely well and was customer oriented.  We decided to go with your firm notbased on dollars. There was one competitor cheaper - but follow-up by Alan.  The cheaper competitor canceled one appointment and was a no show for another. Alan always responded and did an excellent job for us.

Installation - The gentlemen, Cory was on time and completed his work in a professional manner.  Other than a new door and mechanics being in place, one could not tell he was even there.  No mess.  Excellent clean up.  The company should be reminded he did the entire job himself that day - no assistant.  He was alone.  Great job!

The Door - We could not be more pleased.  Quality product, operates quietly and looks great!

I will refer my neighbors and friends in the future.

Thanks to Alan, Cory and your whole team!

- Ted & Pat S.

Zack did a great job this morning replacing our lock. He is very knowledgeable, polite and a nice gentlemen. I am very pleased with the service from Central State.

I love my new opener that Jarrod installed. I was so impressed with how quickly you got there and installed it. It’s so much quieter than the old unit. Your mechanic was great. He showed me how everything worked and how to program the key pad. Great Job!

I enjoyed working with Andy and Mike to get our doors repaired. Both of you did a great job and I was very pleased with the results. I greatly appreciate the discounted price you are charging us. With finances tight it really helps!! I will talk to the Executive Director and find out if he will approve the repair on the safety items. Thanks again for being so personable and patient.

- B Delancey

You are nice gentlemen. You can expect great word of mouth advertising.

- Bob P

- Trish A.

I sincerely want to say "Thank You" for your excellent response to my request. Your service man was most polite and helpful in repairing my garage door opener etc. Thank you for your help. I am sincerely thankful.

- Marion H

Should you ever need an unsolicited testimony, I would be happy to give it to you for the wonderful work your technicians have done when they installed my garage door in 1999 and yesterday when they replaced my door opener which was struck by lightning on Sunday night. Mindy handled the appointment which was more than I ever hoped for, Jarrod helped us release the old opener so that we could manually get our cars out and put in a slide lock for our safety. It was all done with no hassle much quicker than I ever hoped it would be and with such competency and courtesy from all of the men. It was a real pleasure to do business with them. They are above the usual service people and I thought you should know what assets they are to your business. I have told all the people I have spoken with how very accommodating they were and how much I appreciated the help they gave me. Sincerely yours.

- M Dooley
