Up and Over Garage Doors
Up and over garage doors are still by far the most popular type of garage door in the UK. There are 2 types of up and over garage door, canopy and retractable.
Canopy garage doors have vertical tracks down the frame of the door, when the door opens it tilts and swings out whilst rising vertically. When the door is in the fully open position approximately 1/3 of the door will be out side of the garage creating a ‘canopy’. Canopy garage doors are not ideally suited to work with an electric operator.
Retractable garage doors have vertical springs mounted on the frame of the door and horizontal tracks that go back in to the garage. Some retractable garage doors the whole panel will go back in to the garage where as others up to 1/3 of the panel will stay outside.
Roller Garage Doors
Roller garage doors are rapidly becoming more and more popular. Roller doors take only take up room directly above the opening inside the garage making them ideal for people who use their roof space for storage.
Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional garage doors are the best option if insulation is important to you. Sectional garage doors are available with up to 45mm of insulation making this type of door the perfect door if your garage is an integral part of your house.
Side Hinged Garage Doors
Side hinged garage doors are available in many of the same panel styles as up and over garage doors and are an ideal solution if you do not use the garage to put a car in and you want t be able to easily nip in and out of the garage.
