Steel garage doors

Sectional Overhead Design

These doors are fast becoming the preferred option in the modern home. The door is made up of 5 sections which are placed one on top of the other using a system of hinges, which when operated move in a vertical direction, around a curve and along the ceiling. The advantage of this motion is the following:

- The door does not move through the opening of the garage so therefore will not encroach on the boundary line.
These doors are ideal where space is limited and the garage needs to be placed right on the municipal boundary line.

- Vehicles can be parked close to the garage door without fear of it being struck by the door should the door be opened.

- The full opening height can be achieved as the sectional door opens to lintel height.
This is ideal for owners of caravans, 4 x 4, and boats where height might be a problem.

- Due to the vertical motion, this door is not affected by the wind in any way.

- The sectional door is mounted on the inside of the garage opening and overlaps on both sides and the top, this together with a
rubber weather seal on the bottom of the door helps create a better seal against the elements.

- Mounted onto 14 gauge cold rolled galvanized track set.

- Available in single, double and custom sized doors.

- Ideally torsion spring systems are used; however the more economical tension spring system may be used on the single doors if required.

- Different patterns available.

- Customers may submit their own designs for consideration.
