Sectional Roll Up Garage Doors
Sectional roll up garage doors are mostly composed of four or five horizontal panels or sections that are attached or hinged together. These are mounted on rollers with tracks at the side enabling the sectional panels to roll up and then back. Though more expensive than a tilt up garage door, most home owners opt for the sectional roll up garage door as they are easy to operate, and safe to use.
There are many garage door materials to choose from, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. These garage door materials vary from fiberglass, aluminum, steel, wood and come in different price range.
The roll up garage doors are one of the neatest garage door solutions available with vertical operation and no internal tracking mechanism into your garage at all.
This ultimately provides you with more room on your driveway for parking and the option for additional storage space above where a standard up & over or sectional door would normally open. You can also park right up to the roller door, outside or inside and still operate it and not have issues with construction from larger, square backed 4 x 4 vehicles
The whole curtain roll for many of the insulated aluminium roller doors available will usually roll into an average size of about 300 – 350mm diameter in a position behind, underneath or in front of the garage lintel.
The roll size for the continuous curtain, single skin, steel roller door is usually a fair bit larger in diameter so check carefully before deciding on your door (average is 420mm diameter).
