The Different Types of Garage Doors and Their Features

If you’re a garage door supplier, it’s likely that you’re going to need a wide range of products in order to meet the needs of your clients.

The garage door industry is vast, and there are so many different types of garage doors on the market that will suit different clients. 

With this in mind, it’s important to fully understand the different types of garage doors available and the features they offer to users.

In this blog, we’ll concentrate on some of the most popular types of garage doors in the industry, providing you with a comprehensive rundown of the benefits they can bring to your customers.

Sectional Garage Doors

Sectional garage doors combine the appearance of traditional doors with innovative, modern technology to create a product that is hugely effective. Unlike other types of garage doors, sectional options are made up of multiple panels rather than just one. 

When in operation, these panels open vertically to then sit horizontally within the roof space, maintaining a slick and contemporary look.

This type of garage door is an excellent choice for your customers that are looking to save space inside or outside their property, or want a compact product. Due to the fact they open vertically, they have no outswing, so no space will be taken up outside the garage. This is extremely beneficial if your customers have multiple vehicles they need to park on the driveway as they won’t cause an obstruction when the door is opening and closing.

If a customer wants to park their car in the garage, sectional garage doors also offer a wider passage compared to other options – meaning it’s easier for drivers to move in and out and larger vehicles can also be stored. 

At Tradedor, we supply a whole host of sectional garage doors courtesy of our partnership with leading manufacturer Garador.  

Up and Over Garage Doors 

The most recognisable type of garage door product, up and over garage doors are commonplace in homes across the country. This classic design is extremely straightforward, and sees the user open the door and lift it above their head (hence the name), sitting above them in the roofspace when the garage is open.  

Due to their simplicity, they’re perhaps the easiest type of garage door to operate and can be opened and closed extremely quickly. Consequently, this makes them the perfect choice for customers who want an easy, no-frills solution. 

As well as this, they’re incredibly low maintenance, so your customers will have peace of mind that they’re unlikely to suffer from any serious issues.  

Similarly to sectional garage doors, we also stock up and over garage doors from the industry leader, Garador.

Roller Garage Doors

One of the most innovatively designed garage doors available, roller garage doors open from the bottom and retract vertically upwards into a neat box on the ceiling of a garage. This means that they’re among the best types of products when it comes to maximising space. They don’t swing inwards or outwards, so customers will receive more storage space in their garage and can park vehicles up against doors without causing an obstruction.

In addition to this, roller garage doors offer great security to a property due to the robust materials used in the manufacturing process.
