Up and Over Garage Doors
Up and Over garage doors first started to appear around the same time that motor cars were becoming popular. Also known as ‘one piece’ or ‘single panel’ garage doors, their construction and mechanisms have been refined over the years, but they still operate and function in pretty much the same way.
There is a good reason for this, and that is because they work very well. They offer high levels of security and are very reliable. Up and Over doors are available in a number of construction materials including steel, timber and GRP (fibre-glass).
With a huge range of design, colour and finish options and features such as 4-point-locking, anti-snap cylinders and multiple spring safety systems, an Up and Over door offers a reasonably priced, reliable and secure solution that will complement the aesthetics of any home.
Canopy or Retractable?
There are two types of Up and Over Garage Door gear available; canopy and retractable.
Canopy door gear does not have any tracks going back into the garage and roughly one third of the door protrudes out from the opening when the door is in the open position forming a ‘canopy’
A retractable Up and Over door retracts fully into the opening on tracks that run back into the garage.
