We’ve had a bit of a run on sectional garage doors recently.
If you have a limited amount of space on your drive, or no drive at all, then this garage door could be for you.
How do Sectional Garage Doors Work?
Sectional garage doors are constructed of horizontal panels (usually between 3 to 8) which rise vertically, then glide horizontally back into the garage. Runners on the ceiling accommodate the horizontal panels as they slide into the garage. Sectional doors are usually fitted behind the garage opening.
• They open and close with minimum effort.
• Vehicles can park very close to the garage before opening as they don’t require any space outside.
• They can offer a high level of heat and sound insulation.
• There’s lots of choice in panel design, colour, paint finish etc.
• Can have glazed window panels, allowing light to flood into the garage
• Secure – each panel has its own connection to the door track; increasing reliability and robustness.
• Quick to open in an emergency, and can be manually opened.
• They require space inside the garage for the horizontal runners to operate.
We think the ‘pros’ outweigh the ‘cons’!
