Looking for source of Architectural symbols

Post by luggw1 » Mon Dec 20, 2021 5:16 pm

I'm working on a floor plan for a railroad roundhouse and am looking for the correct symbols to use to represent industrial roll-up and sliding doors as shown in the attached image. I've searched Google and seem to come up with nothing but residential references. FWIW, I'm a mechanical engineer by training so architectural drawings are a bit out of my element. I have to tap drafting training from many decades ago. Can someone point me to a resource that might provide me with what I'm looking for?

Thanks for the help

Hi Bill
I found this one that has quite a a lot of stuff that can be downloaded.
Like everything these days it has adds but I guess that's how they make money..
All drawings and blocks are free..update some are $5 most are free..

Hope this helps I found garage doors searching but not sure if that is what you are looking for.
