Identify Your Door Type

 In blog

If you are unsure what kind of door you have take a look at these examples:


Canopy Garage Door

Traditionally the most common type of garage door used in this country. In the open position, approx 1/3rd of the door panel is left outside the garage forming a canopy. The name describes the door as it will act like a “Canopy”



Retractable Garage Door

From the outside this door looks like a canopy door, but works differently. Using a horizontal track in the top of the garage, and an arm up the side of the door, the door opens outwards then fully retracts into the garage when open.



Sectional Garage Door

Using a number of panels, normally four, connected by hinges, this door opens vertically without swinging out and comes to rest in the open position on a horizontal track in the top part of the garage.



Roller Garage Door

Using either a single piece of flexible steel, or a number of slim panels linked together to form a curtain, that opens vertically and is stored in the top of the garage.
