What is a Garador sectional door?
Garador sectional garage doors are the best engineered on the market boasting excellent thermal insulation. The durable seals helps maintain a sound and insulated door. They have two types of garage doors. One is the Premium, and it has a thick double skin steel section that is evenly filled with CFC-free PU foam. It is good for garages and workshops where you want insulation. The other type is the Classic range, which has single skinned steel for a lower price.
A sectional garage door is made up of separate sections rather than a single panel; they rise vertically with no loss of driveway space in front of the garage, and provide full opening drive through width, giving extra room for wider vehicles such as 4x4s and MPVs.
Why are sectional doors more common?
They may not be the most aesthetically pleasing, but sectional doors are much stronger than hinged doors and they’re more secure. You can install them in places where space is limited; you don’t need room for a typical door’s swing radius.
This garage uses a combination of steel beams and wood posts to hold up the roof. If this homeowner had installed a hinged door instead of a sectional one, it would have caused structural problems. A long-lasting alternative building your own wooden Garador door is an excellent way to save money while also building something that will last because you used materials that are high quality and weather resistant.
Sectional doors are great for UK homeowners. They’re easy to install because all you have to do is put them up in place of your standard hinged door. The UK weather can wreak havoc on homes very quickly, especially wooden houses. If you live in a more northern region such as Scotland or Ireland, then ensuring that your home’s exterior stays in tip-top condition can be an important task throughout the year. Storms with high winds come through regularly and can easily damage roofs, windows and doors. It’s always best to protect your property from head-on by installing strong materials like steel beams and thick screws that will withstand extreme conditions for years. Therefore you really can’t go wrong with a high quality, insulated sectional garage door.
Quick tip: Roller vs sectional garage doors.
1. Roller garage doors do not have a ‘sectional door’ version. Sectional garage doors are the style with top and bottom panels, typically 2″ x 7″. Roll-up doors can be used above the sectional door but are made to accommodate only 3 or 5 panels instead of two full sections like top and bottom.
2. A lot of Garador sectional doors come with a multi-point locking system that operates through-bolts on the rails and strike plates on the header/door panel as well as padlocks (Allen key locks). The deadbolt lock is operated by one key from both sides of the door to prevent accidental opening when someone pulls too hard on it. That means you can open your whole garage with ease!
