One piece up and over garage doors are traditionally the most popular style. Offering excellent value for money and a wide range of materials and finishes.
Canopy garage doors have a spring mechanism at the top of the door providing the counterbalance lift.
These doors are not meant to be automated and are a perfect choice where space may be a concern.
A retractable garage door has horizontal tracks mounted on the ceiling or sidewalls to guide the door back into the garage. The door panel retracts fully into the garage and is suitable for automation.
The roller design offers far more benefits than a conventional up and over garage door style. We offer both single-skinned and insulated roller garage doors.
This style door rolls up vertically and does not swing out in front of the garage.
You can park right up to the door and have more storage space on the roof of the garage.
Automatic garage doors offer complete convenience. On a wet, windy day there is nothing worse than stepping out of your car to open your garage door. When you install an automatic garage door, you can open it by the simple touch of a button. This luxury alternative is easily operated and will make parking your car much easier.
This type of door offers a perfect solution and a high level of security for your property.
The only thing you need to make room for is the horizontal bars inside of your property for the individual pieces to sit in. They work with a simple yet innovative mechanism; comprised of several individual elements that are connected in sequence via hinges. This creates a system of solid sections that all move vertically whilst at the same time rolling upwards and into the tracks that sit just below the ceiling.
Wide range of designs and colours and extras such as matching side doors, glazing and wicket doors can be added
The side hinged garage door option offers a solution to so many problems and provides options not available with any other type of garage door. With a marked increase in the number of requests for side hinged traditional garage doors, many people have realised the practicality for busy lifestyles where the garage is not being used for a vehicle.
This is a great option if frequent access is required because the garage is being used as a large storeroom perhaps for bikes and toys, a freezer, a laundry or maybe a workshop, home gym or just a general room. The side hinged doors give the person on foot easy access to the garage without having to raise a full door up.
With high-specification security features and many additional options available, the insulated side-hinged door can be custom-made with a huge variety of options including colours, designs, windows and appliques to open unlimited horizons for creativity.
Security on a pair of side-hinged garage doors is first class providing a sub frame is used and the panels are strong enough. The best side-hinged garage doors for security are the insulated steel doors and there are options for adding additional locking. Because of the construction of the door, more robust locking mechanisms can be built in – combine this with double rebated edges and a very strong sub frame and the overall result is an extremely secure door.
A typical garage door will last around 20-30 years although there are many factors to consider. Your garage doors’ lifetime will vary depending on the quality and type of construction materials you choose. Factors such as weather, environment, usage and maintenance will impact on the longevity of your garage door. Garage door openers should remain operative for between 10-15 years.
While you may be tempted to repair your garage door yourself, you may want to consider that DIY garage door repairs can be difficult, expensive and most importantly, dangerous. Not being professionally trained may increase your risk of injury, you may risk turning a small problem into an expensive one, you may not have the right tools or parts and/or you could waste money repairing parts that aren’t damaged. If your garage door isn’t working as it should, you’re better off reaching out to a professional garage door repair company like 247 Garage Doors.
Side-hinged doors are exactly what the name suggests – they open out sideways on hinges. The mechanism is made up of a pair of panels fitted onto a sub-frame. Simple but efficient.
Side-hinged doors are not only ideal for those with accessibility or mobility concerns, but also great if you have obstructions inside your garage or limited headroom. Side-hinged doors make accessing your garage easy and with options of just opening a part of the garage door, they are ideal for getting into the garage by foot.
Side-hinged garage doors don’t rely on noisy mechanisms, just the door hinges. This makes this type of door ideal if you use your garage door a lot or need to access the garage door late at night.
For doors without any other entrance into the garage, there is a lockable emergency manual release system which should be fitted. Secured with anti-theft screws this allows the door to be opened manually from outside the garage.
The door panel lifts from the bottom and either forms a canopy in front of the door frame (canopy mechanism) or slides out of the way on tracks to sit just below the garage door ceiling (retractable mechanism). The panel itself is fitted into a goal-post style frame made from either steel or timber.
The level of maintenance required can depend on various factors, such as the material the panel is made from, weathering and climate, as well as the amount you use your garage door. Lubrication to the metallic moving parts (such as hinges, pulleys, springs, tracks and rollers) should be carried out regularly. An annual service by a professional garage door installer is recommended to ensure your garage door is kept in tip-top condition.
All domestic up and over garage doors are fitted with an anti-drop device which means that should a cable break or a spring fail, the door won’t come crashing down and cause damage or injury. All up and over doors are lightweight and smooth provided the spring balance is set correctly. Additional four-point locking can be added, if required.
Insulation isn’t just for houses-it can save you money on your energy bill and help the environment. It acts as a protective layer for your home, guarding it from extreme weather conditions and burglaries.
An added benefit of an insulated garage door is added durability. Insulated garage doors for both residential and commercial properties are constructed differently from single-skinned garage doors, which makes them stronger.
When it comes to security, sectional garage doors are one of the most secure doors available, given their excellent panel construction and steel guiding. This gives a great resistance to attempted forced entry and break-ins.
