What are Garage Doors?

Roller Garage Doors

Garage doors are an essential component of any home with a garage. Over the years, Garage doors have evolved, offering a diverse range of types to suit various preferences and functional requirements. Let’s take a look at what some of these are and where each one can be used:

  • Roller Garage Doors - Roller garage doors coil up vertically and coil into a shutter box, ideal when you want to maximise your garage space. We do have a roller garage door that has a compact box and is ideal when headroom is limited. All the roller garage doors come as standard with Insulated Aluminium laths, Internal Manual Override and Remote Control operation with 2 Fobs and Safety Edge. Available in a range of standard colours and woodgrain finishes.

  • Sectional Garage Doors - Our sectional garage doors run on top tracks that run across the garage roof. We have a range of insulated panel designs, which are available in a wide range of colours and finishes. The sectional garage doors are available manually operated or electrically operated with remote control operation.
