Technical Information

Technical Information - The Garage Door Centre

For so many projects exact technical information will be essential in the initial designs and we can provide as much technical information as required by the homeowner, builder or architect.

With so many garage doors the mechanism for the actual door operation and the electric drive mechanism can be very intrusive inside the garage and it is essential to know the path and dimensions of the gear in a new build. For a replacement garage door we would tailor the mechanism to suit the existing layout.

So many garage doors can have bespoke mechanism specified for little extra cost but a huge gain in aesthetics and internal use of the garage. We can help you work out the best mechanism for the optimum performance, dimensions and internal space usage.

A lot of technical information is already readily available in PDF brochures within our website. Simply search for the appropriate door type, manufacturer and model if applicable and details for the dimensions and other factors should be within the documents.

For exact technical information based on existing architect’s drawings we will happily receive your drawings and work with them to produce a specific option or several options based on some criteria you provide.

Contact The Garage Door Centre

If you require technical information it may be easier just to pick up the phone on 0800 525 442 and speak to one of our experts in house. You can of course also email us directly.

Alternatively, feel free to visit our Northamptonshire showroom based in Wellingborough.

E-mail The Garage Door Centre

Feel free to e-mail us drawings, PDFs, etc. to discuss any technical matters that you may have.

Some information is not of course readily available in document form and is only available through years of experience and again, this is why The Garage Door Centre unlike most door companies can offer you a far higher degree of expertise to ensure you get what you need from a new door.

Alternatively, you can of course call us on 01933 229135 to speak to a member of our expert team directly.
