The Carteck GSW 40 Solid sectional door design is a spacious ribbed design which is manufactured to complement any home, new or old. Constructed using polyester coated galvanized steel, double skinned panels, this ribbed design is available in a range of different surface textures shown below. Sometimes this door is referred to as 'unribbed' as a model. The simplicity of this sectional door enables many additonal stainless steel elements and various normal or stainless steel framed windows to be added to create unique designs. In the smooth surface finish this door looks absolutely stunning especially in contemporary colour finishes.

Carteck are a German company held in high regard by architects, fitters and general customers due to the high quality and innovation of their products. They provide a wide variety of surfaces, colours and glazing elements to help personalise your garage door and make it your own.


The Carteck sectional door uses a different spring balance mechanism to most other sectional doors and this enables the headroom requirement to be only 120mm for most of the sizes available. However unlike other 'low headroom' systems the Carteck will give you a full drive through height when fully open using any one of their superb electric operators, and this is unique!!  This makes this sectional door ideal for larger garages with bedrooms above, flat roof arrangements with little headroom or just anywhere where you want to maximise the drive through height. Carteck also offer many more intermediate standard heights at the same price than others do to maximise the seal and insulation by getting a door the same height as the underside of your lintel avoiding an infill section which is normally not insulated. 

Surface Texture

Carteck doors are available as standard in the woodgrain surface however  the Stucco, Micro-Profile and Smooth surfaces are available for the same price!

The Carteck Solid door is available in all standard widths from 6'10" up to 18'0" wide with a new range of 'super sizes' offering widths up to a whopping 8000mm wide (26'3")
These super size sectional doors use commercial operating gear and do require more headroom but still offer excellent value for money for any super size garage.

Safety Features

Carteck have produced a range of safety features to ensure durable functionality is ensured whilst paying keen attention to detail. With each sectional door, they supply:

  • Perfect fitting sections
    Individual sections are connected by wear resistant galvanized steel hinges which make the door leaf more secure.

  • Profiled spring channel
    The contour of the spring channel reduces friction between the channel housing and plastic sliders and ensures that the door runs even more smoothly.

  • Frame base protection against corrosion
    A special plastic part ensures that the vertical frame has no contact with the floor; the base area is thus continuously ventilated and protected against corrosion.

  • Safe, quiet running
    The robust side hinges with integrated finger protection hold the patented eccentric roller holders.

  • Patented emergency release
    Imperative for garages without a second entrance. The emergency release is operated from the outside via a master key system suitable profile cylinder or Kaba cylinder. It decouples the drive and enables the manual opening of the door (pre-equipped for GSW Carteck sectional doors as standard).

Electric Operation

This sectional garage door is available in both manual and electric operation.

A range of handheld remote controls are available when the door is electronically operated to provide an easy solution to opening your garage door.
