A door ticks all your boxes

Available in a variety of styles and colours, you can give your garage a modern and secure make over. If you are looking for a door that provides style, security and convenience, consider installing a sectional garage door today!

The sectional garage door is fast becoming the most popular door type in the UK, and for good reason. Unlike up and over garage door, known as ‘swing out’ doors, a sectional garage door opens in a space saving vertical motion. Another benefit is the effective weather sealing on all sides, due to their construction and operation method, which is useful in rain and snow, weather that is becoming more prevalent these days.

Sectional garage doors provide a variety of advantages for homeowners. They are strong, durable, energy efficient and stylish. Here are some of the key benefits of sectional garage doors:

1. Space saving

Don’t worry if headroom is your biggest issue. Sectional garage doors open vertically to minimize space using. While being used, door panels do not extend through the opening. Henece, a space-saving feature enables the space nearby, such as the drive, to be utilized and functional.  For example, a SeceuroGlide Sectional Compact requires just 90mm above the opening. The rear-mounted springing system reduces the need for space above the door opening and the neat design requires as little as 85mm on either side. Perfect for maximising your drive-through space! Or the SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite is also a fantastic space-saving solution, it needs just 100mm of headroom and has a unique side-mounted mechanism that adds strength.
