Garage Door Types Explained

Roller Doors

A Roller door opens vertically, and coils around a motorised barrel or tube into the open position. This door consists of double skinned insulated lath fitted with a horizontal rubber nosing and vertical brush strip to ensure an effective seal when closed. Features include:

  • Doors are normally fitted behind brickwork reveals to maximise both opening width and height
  • No outward swing as door opens, so you can park right up to the door – especially useful if you have a short driveway.  Ideal for arched openings
  • All doors are made to measure to suit your opening
  • Wide choice of surface finishes and colours
  • Motorised and with remote control technology for convenience and peace of mind.

Canopy - Up & Over

When fully open the door projects outside the opening by approximately 1/3 of its height, thus forming a “canopy” A torsion spring provides the power and balance to ensure ease of use, lifting the door via steel cables at each side. Features include:

  • Maximum drive through width ensured by there being no projection of the operating gear into the opening.
  • Normally supplied with an integral steel frame for the most straightforward installation.
  • Available in a range of standard sizes, also made to measure.
  • Doors manufactured from steel, timber, GRP and PVC, with a wide range of surface finishes and colours.
  • A manually operated door, but can be upgraded to electric operation and remote control added.
Retractable - Up & Over

Retractable doors – sometimes called “tracked” the gear allows the garage door to open almost fully back into the garage. Side mounted tension springs power and balance the door as it moves on door arms, with spindles and rollers operating in horizontal tracks into the open position. Some loss of drive through width because of door arm intrusion can be overcome by using the alternative Retractable Plus gear, which moves the door arm brackets further up the frame. Features include:

  • Normally supplied with integral steel frame for ease of installation
  • Available in a range of standard sizes, also made to measure.
  • Doors are manufactured in steel, timber, GRP and PVC, with a wide range of surface finishes and colours.
  • A manually operated door, but can be upgraded to electric operation and remote control added.
