A garage door is a large door on a garage that opens either manually or by an electric motor. Garage doors are frequently large enough to accommodate automobiles and other vehicles. Small garage doors may be made in a single panel that tilts up and back across the garage ceiling.
There are many types of garage doors to choose from – the six most common are sectional, roll-up, slide to the side, side hinged, tilt-up canopy, and tilt-up retractable. You also must decide on the door material, finish, color, and special options like windows, insulation, and hardware you want to use.
Steel garage doors are the best choice when you need security and durability. They are stronger and more secure than fiberglass, wood, and aluminum doors.
Torsion springs are typically mounted horizontally above the door opening. As the door comes down, cables that are attached to the bottom corners of the door cause the springs to wind up and this winding creates stored energy. When the door is opened, the springs unwind and the energy helps lift the garage door.
A garage door is a large door on a garage that opens either manually or by an electric motor (a garage door opener). Garage doors are frequently large enough to accommodate automobiles and other vehicles. Small garage doors may be made in a single panel that tilts up and back across the garage ceiling. Larger doors are usually made in several jointed panels that roll up on tracks across the garage ceiling, or into a roll above the doorway. The operating mechanism is spring-loaded or counterbalanced to offset the weight of the door and reduce human or motor effort required to operate the door. Less commonly, some garage doors slide or swing horizontally. Doors are made of wood, metal, or fiberglass, and may be insulated to prevent heat loss. Warehouses, bus garages and locomotive sheds have larger versions.
Types of door :
Single panel garage doors
Single panel doors are constructed from one monolithic panel. From the closed position a single panel door swings up and overhead with a hinge on each side (known as jamb type hardware) to the fully open position. A disadvantage of monolithic panel doors is that the swing up arc of the door occurs partially outside the garage. This means a vehicle must stop and park several feet in front of the door to avoid being hit by the garage door when it is opened.
Sectional doors open vertically upwards and are suspended under the ceiling to save space. This construction principle means you can make full use of the space inside and in front of the garage. Sectional garage doors can be fitted in every garage door opening, and offer up to 14 cm more passage width than up-and-over doors. Flexible and weather-resistant seals on all four sides of the Hörmann sectional doors ensure that they are optimally sealed.
Up-and-over garage doors
Up-and-over garage doors combine high quality and proven technology with long-term functionality and safe operation. You can obtain up-and-over garage doors in a wide variety of attractive steel designs, with ribbing and panelling, and as timber doors. Colours and surface finishes create additional accents.
