There are many different types of garage doors available, with most of them designed so that they can be tailored to meet a customer’s specific needs.
Below is a quick overview of the 3 most common types of residential garage doors available through B&D.
Rolling Doors comprise of a ribbed steel curtain that moves vertically in the opening and rolls up and around the drum, guided by tracks and counterbalanced with springs.
They are particularly suitable for garages and sheds where there is plenty of headroom above the opening and where a traditional look is required.
Sectional Doors are made from a number of rigid sections/panels that are hinged together and move vertically in the opening, then horizontally along the ceiling, guided by tracks and counter-balanced with springs. These doors are the most aesthetically adaptable of most garage doors, and are available in a range of colours, patterns and may also featured windows. Sectional doors can be made of wood and other materials, but are most commonly made of steel.
Flex-A-Door is made from a durable Roll-A-door curtain that is fitted on a curving track – which slides from a vertical position up into a horizontal position, close to the ceiling.
It is especially suited to applications where there is not the headroom for a rolling door, or where a smoother, easier to use solution is required to replace an existing tilt door.
