Sectional garage doors are vertically opening garage doors that made from separate sections, meaning they are easy to install to any shape of door. There are many benefits of sectional doors. They are space saving, insulated, secure, remotely operated, and there are a variety of sizes available. Furthermore, the majority of these doors are double skinned, made from galvanised steel, and the panels contain thick insulating foam. Not to mention that aluminium and timber sectional garage doors are also available, depending on your preference of material.
Additionally, they are a particularly popular solution for short driveways and garages, as they are vertically opening and you and your car can be directly up against the door. Operated both manually or using a remote, a spring system works to open the doors. The insulation and rubber seals within them keep the temperature within the garage or building constant.

As a thin type of sectional door, single skin doors do not provide any thermal insulation. Moreover, they are available with manual or electric operating systems.

Roller garage doors are made from horizontal slats that wrap around a drum when the door is closed. Additionally, they are compact as there is no internal tracking. However they do require room to store the roll of curtain. There does not need to be a frame for them to be installed, so the size of the garage entrance is not decreased. Moreover, they come either with insulation or without, depending on the contents of the garage. The aluminium roller garage doors we provide are installed safely and securely to your property, in compliance with the regulations set by CE.
Up and over garage doors are made from a one single panel that tilts to close and is usually kept at ceiling level. They are highly secure and easy to operate, whilst being one of the more cost-effective garage doors available on the market. Furthermore, there are two types of up and over garage doors – canopy operated or retractable.
Canopy gear doors are attached to the frame by a folding arm and rolling wheels, and as the door closes the wheels travel along the tracks.
Retractable doors are attached to the frame with spring-loaded side arms that assist the door in opening using the tension applied.
