Garage Doors

Having been associated with this industry since 2001 we know that choosing the right garage door can be a daunting task there are so many styles and types of operation where do you start?

Below are the main types of garage door running equipment to give you some ideas of what might suit you best?

 

Up And Over Door

This is the most common type of garage door on the market and usually the most cost effective type of garage door there is. They are not that suitable for automation as they way that work does not lend themselves to be easily automated there are conversion kits available for this type of door and they do work  but not as efficiently or effectively as their counterparts.

 

They are available in a wide range of colours and styles with the option of having them made from wood/fibreglass/steel even abs plastic all of the door constructions have their individual benefits should you require any further information then please call.

Shown below is the reverse of the door to show you the way it works.

 

 

Retractable Garage Door

These are identical looking doors on the outside but have tracks inside the garage that the door runs on these are highly suited to be automated and require no conversion kits or special parts to do so.

They are available in a wide range of colours and styles with the option of having them made from wood/fibreglass/steel even abs plastic all of the door constructions have their individual benefits should you require any further information then please call.

Roller Garage Doors

These types of door also known as roller shutters are now mostly automated as there cost can be quite competitive but styles are slatted only as they roll up like a carpet but there are a lot of colours available. They do take up less room in the garage as they have no tracks or projection into the garage and are very suited to being automated.

They are a strong garage door due to their design and also very weather tight in comparison to the up and over garage door and the retractable garage door. They are also insulated to keep the garage noticeably warmer, this is a benefit to those whose garage is built on to the side of their house as the wall adjacent to the garage will benefit from this.

 

Sectional Garage Door

A Sectional garage door is noted by many as the leading type of door very suitable for automation, very secure, very weather tight and very insulated if required need we say more.  They have tracks like a retractable door and move vertically up and down like a roller so the best of both worlds.

 

There are many colours and styles available flat a modern look to even Norwegian hemlock pine there is a style and type that will suit most people.
