The roll ups at my shop maybe take up about a foot and a half from the wall. Not much light blocking there.

LED lights mounted on an overhead door might be durable enough to survive repeated opening and closing vibration. Incandescent or fluorescent, not so much, I'd guess.

Not sure how I missed this thread. My 24' X 25' shop has 12' walls. I have two 10' X 10' roll up doors. They have a chain like a chain hoist. No spring assist. Pretty easy to roll up. Very heavy doors, so I chose chain hoist instead of spring assisted pull up. As I get older, I would worry about my back.
Here's an early video. LINK HERE

I'm pleased with the doors and ease of use. There is a flap type seal along the top edge because when the door is down the gap between the large drum and the top of the door frame is large. That gap becomes smaller once the door is up because the drum is wrapped with the door.

I wish all my doors were the swing open type since I have the room. The primer booth and the finish paint booth have the swing doors which can give a positive seal. Have two overhead track sliding doors, 12' and 24' which leak even though they have rubber flaps on bottom, seal in center, and a flap at the closing point for the outside edge. The chain actuated 12' overhead door is the worse leaker with gaps on both sides and no good way to seal from the door frame to the roll. The building skin is 3' wide metal R-panels with ribs so haven't come up with a good way to seal the overhead door but the darn thing sure is handy.
