Sectional garage doors are vertically opening garage doors that are made of separate sections, meaning they can be installed to any shape of door. They are many benefits of sectional doors, as they are space saving, insulated, secure, remote operated and there are a variety of sizes available. The majority of sectional doors are double skinned, made from galvanised steel, and the panels contain thick insulating foam. Aluminium and timber sectional garage doors are also available, depending on your preference of material. They are a particularly popular solution for short driveways and garages, as they are vertically opening so you can open them whilst being parked directly up against the door. You can either operate them manually or using a remote, and they use a spring system to open. The insulation and rubber seals within them are designed to keep the temperature within the garage or building constant.
Single skin doors are a thin type of sectional garage door that do not provide any thermal insulation. They are available with manual or electric operating systems, and there are a range of colours you can choose from. Some of the features of single skin doors are:
Double skin doors are constructed from two walls of steel filled with insulated foam slats (lath) that are interlocked together into a single sheet. Some of the features of double skin doors are:
Roller garage doors are made from horizontal slats that wrap around a drum when the door is closed. 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. They come either insulated or non-insulated, 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 constructed from one single panel that tilts to close and is stored 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. There are two types of up and over garage doors- canopy operated or retractable.
Canopy gear up and over garage 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 up and over garage doors are attached to the frame with spring-loaded side arms that assist the door in opening using the tension applied.
