WHAT IS THE REQUIRED DRIVEWAY LENGTH?
When in use, sectional and roller doors do not require any free space in front of the garage. The door blade rises vertically and hides under the ceiling or rolls up into a box . Both door types are recommended for garages opening directly onto the street and where there is limited space in front of the garage. leaf rises up and out in front of a building. Therefore, a car cannot be parked directly in front of the door, but at a distance of approximately 59". If the car is parked closer, the door cannot be opened. , on the other hand, opens like an ordinary door and requires free space in front of the garage allowing free movement of the door leaves. In designing a garage, it should be ensured that the entrance opening size is sufficient to allow comfortable entry for a car. A standard size garage door constitutes an economical solution, and is often available on the spot. If it is not possible to use a standard door in the existing opening, we recommend installing custom-made doors fitted precisely to the existing opening
Form and function
Sectional garage doors are manufactured using 1.6" panel garage doors. All our panels facility using state-of-the-art technological lines which ensure high quality and repeatability at each stage of the manufacturing process. High technical parameters and reliable corrosion protection are obtained thanks to the use of high grade, galvanized steel with paint or film coating. The stiff polyurethane foam core ensures optimum strength for the panels and improves their thermal insulation. Special solutions, such as the 5-layer sheet bending system ensures stable fastening of elements, which further increases the strength of our design.
