Overlap Garage Doors

Most types of garage doors have been around for a number of years and although their mechanisms have been refined somewhat over time, they have remained reasonably unchanged. The overlap ‘trackless’ sectional door from Silvelox, however, is a fairly recent innovation in the garage door industry and offers a very compact solution whilst providing all the benefits of an insulated sectional door.

Trackless System

The overlap garage door features two door panels and a ‘Silmotion’ automatic operator embedded in the head bar. The insulated sectional panels fold in half, then the lower panel slides underneath the upper panel. This means that there are no tracks or door going back into the garage, which is not only very neat and tidy, but also means you still have full access to the roof space. It can also be particularly useful if there are any obstructions, such as internal doors or utility meters that may prevent the installation of a tracked door.

Security and Safety

Silvelox have developed a number of patented features that are exclusive to the overlap product. A unique locking system featuring spring loaded locking hooks and dead bolts provides extremely high levels of security. Silvelox have also developed a number of safety features including their ‘anti-trap’ safety mechanism that provides complete finger trap protection.

Classic to Contemporary Design

The overlap door is available in natural timber or steel finishes and is constructed from 75mm thick multi-ecowood panels, providing extremely high levels of both thermal and acoustic insulation. Overlap doors are available in a large range of sizes with 12 design options covering traditional vertical styles to contemporary geometric designs.

Colour and Finish Options

All the design options in the overlap product range are available in a large number of exclusive finishes. These include Okoumé, Northern Spruce, Oak and Larch natural timber finishes and a wide range of paint colour options. The Duo, Emi and Six designs are also available in Steel finishes with a number of colour and timber effect options.

Matching Options

Overlap doors are available with a full range of matching product options. These include window and glazing options along with a range of discreet ventilation ports. Silvelox also provide matching cover boards and transom panels.


Both manual and fully automatic overlap doors are available. An automated overlap door features Silvelox’s unique Silmotion operator technology. The operator mechanism is contained with the overlap headbar which means there are no tracks or operator boom arms projecting back into the garage. It also means that the overlap doors clean and elegant appearance is the same on both the inside and outside of the door.


The Silvelox overlap garage doors come with a 5 year warranty on the door finish and a 10 year warranty on the door.
