Wicket Doors: A Modern Solution

Pedestrian doors built into sectional garage doors offer convenient pedestrian access


Wicket Doors in Sectional Doors 

The modern lifestyle naturally demands modern solutions, and wicket doors within sectional garage doors are certainly a solution within the industry.

In short, a sectional door with a wicket door comprises of a standard, vertically-opening sectional door, with a pedestrian door fitted within the panels. This product is particularly convenient for users who frequently access the garage by both vehicle and on foot.

Why a Sectional Door?

Although a side hinged door may also offer a solution not too dissimilar, a sectional door offers more beneficial properties in regards to solutions for the average homeowner, such as higher levels of insulation and security.

The pedestrian door’s placement allows one to simply open only that door upon entry, rather than having to open the entirety of the sectional door. This functionality can be integrated successfully within households that have incorporated the garage as an additional room to the main house.

The pedestrian door can, in the majority of cases, be positioned within the sectional door according to your own requirements, for example on the left, right or centrally.
