How Do Sectional Garage Doors Work?

Posted on 29 April 2022

Sectional garage doors are fast becoming more common due to the fact they perfectly combine modern technology with a beautiful, traditional look. They work slightly differently to other types of garage doors, and they offer a myriad of unique benefits as a result.

If you’re thinking about replacing or upgrading your garage door, a sectional garage door could be the ideal solution for you.

How Does a Sectional Garage Door Work?

Sectional garage doors are typically comprised of four or five panels. When the garage door is opened, each individual panel hinges back, allowing the door to fully retract back. Once opened, the panels align horizontally within

The Benefits of Sectional Garage Doors

Several benefits come with having a sectional garage door, with the first being the fact you can utilise the full height and width of your garage opening. Many types of garage doors don’t fully retract back, meaning some of the height is typically lost. This can cause issues for those with larger cars.

Due to the fact a sectional garage door retracts up and back in sections, you lose less of your opening space. This is ideal for those with larger vehicles who otherwise may struggle to get the height they need to drive their car in with ease.

Ideal for Short Driveways

Another benefit of sectional garage doors is that they don’t jut out whilst opening. With other types of garage doors, if you have a short driveway or have other cars parked near your garage, you sometimes need to move them so that the garage door has enough space to open out before it retracts back up.

Sectional garage doors simply retract up and back. None of the panels come out before going up, so you don’t need to worry about moving other vehicles or items in order to open the garage door.

Thermally Efficient

If your garage is attached to your house, you’ll ideally want a highly secure and thermally efficient solution to keep intruders out and heat in. Sectional garage doors can be insulated or non-insulated, giving you the option to choose what’s best for your home in the way of energy efficiency.

Every home is different and it’s important you find a garage door that reflects your style and complements the rest of your house. One of the main advantages of sectional garage doors is that they can be manufactured in a wide range of styles, finishes, and sizes.
