Types of Garage Doors
Garage doors have evolved dramatically over the years, from the standard tilt door that is still very common and practical, especially in Brisbane, to one-off custom made designer garage doors.
Panel Lift/ Sectional Doors
Panel lift garage doors (also known as sectional garage doors) are designed to open vertically. They are built from several horizontal panels joined together in one solid door. This design allows the door to open seamlessly by following a curved track that ends parallel with the ceiling of your garage, using minimal space.
These durable doors are customisable in a range of colours and designs to enhance the aesthetic look of your home. They can be motorised for your convenience, though they can be opened by hand if necessary.
Doors Direct roller doors are made from Blue Scope Australian made steel and are available in a range of colours and styles. They can be motorised with a remote or can be manually operated with a centre lift key.
The doors operate by rolling up directly above your garage opening, requiring you to have more headroom than other garage doors.
Tilt Garage Doors
Tilt doors can be constructed from several materials in a broad range of options and colours, so you can find the perfect door to complement your home. If you have limited height in your garage, a tilt door may be in your best interest. They are a one-piece overhead door that uses a hinge that opens up and out.
Even with the relatively simple design, tilt doors can be motorised for your convenience, allowing you to quickly park your vehicle and enter your home.
Custom Aluminium Doors
Custom aluminium doors are the perfect choice for people who want to have airflow in their garage or have it aesthetically match the palings under the home or a fence. They require minimal maintenance as they are lightweight and don’t rust.
These doors can be manufactured in the panel lift or tilt door styles and can be motorised for your convenience.
