Selection criteria for a garage door


When selecting a suitable garage door, there are many criteria that can influence the decision. The up-and-over garage door was the typical garage door of the past. With an overhead garage door and an up-and-over garage door, the entire door leaf is moved in such a way that it swings forwards and upwards under the garage roof. The sectional door is known as a space-saver. A sectional door consists of sections, meaning of individual elements connected to one another that move upwards during opening. The entire sectional door then lies below the garage roof. Up-and-over garage doors are less expensive to have than sectional garage doors, but these also provide the necessary clearance height for large cars. There are always a few questions to answer beforehand. Technical requirements, convenience and security demands, and diverse design wishes are essential when selecting a garage door. The styling, construction and functionality of a door play an important role when planning a garage door. The selection criteria for a garage door are given in the following:


1. Space requirements in front of the garage door

The up-and-over garage door is made from one panel and always opens upwards, but it does require space inside and in front of the garage. With a sectional door, the isolated panels move vertically upwards. Thus, the door can be moved when a vehicle is parked directly in front of the garage. Those with little room in front of the garage are best served by the sectional door.

2. The safety aspect

The aspect of safety must be considered when selecting a garage door. The greatest difference lies in the manner in which the garage door opens. A garage must be burglar-resistant because many garages are connected to the residence with just one door. The garage door must therefore be stable, durable and secure. In comparison, up-and-over garage doors are somewhat more inexpensive, however, these models do come with a certain risk of injury. There should be no people or animals in the swing arc of the garage door. With their drive systems, sectional doors are always secured against the possibility of the door being pried open, and there is no risk of injury when the door is opened.

3. Convenience of an electric garage door drive

The garage door can be thoroughly convenient. There are many benefits of an electric garage door drive. It is simple for the driver to remotely open and close the garage door, and not just while it is raining and storming. This saves time on a daily basis. The drive provides resistance when the door is pried up, so the door also protects against burglars. The garage lights and the outside lights can be switched on and off at the same time. The electric garage drive is thus a great asset.

4. Design options of the garage door

The selection of a garage door is also influenced by design options. Sectional and up-and-over garage doors can be adapted perfectly to the home. The door colour can suit the window frame colour, and the various surfaces and materials can have a decisive impact on the selection of the door. Wood, aluminium, and, above all else, stainless steel are the most common garage door materials. However, they must be protected against light, temperature, moisture, wind and adverse weather. With solid wood garage doors, a regular protective coating is applied; with metal doors, on the other hand, paint and a possible primer are applied. A harmonious styling is important to many homeowners. Therefore, special attention should be paid to the overall impression given by the up-and-over or sectional garage door to the area.

5. Wicket doors with multi-purpose garages make sense

If a garage is visited often, then a wicket door or a second access point into the garage is necessary. This means you can avoid the cumbersome opening and closing of the garage door. A wicket door not only saves time, it also saves energy: the body’s energy, if the garage door is opened and closed with muscle power, and electrical energy for garage doors with electric drive. A wicket or side door is ideal for sectional garage doors if you need regular access to the garage. Additionally, a long power outage does not pose a problem since you can get into the garage at any time through the wicket or side door in the garage door.

6. The garage's heating insulation is key

A garage door in good quality pays for itself, primarily when the garage is subject to a great deal of cold and moisture. Temperatures within the garage can also sink rapidly and severely. Heat insulation in new garage doors is thus of key importance. If the garage doors insulate poorly, moisture can get into the garage and cause damage from rusting. Not only might cars and motorcycles be difficult to start, but other tools, frost-sensitive devices and stored items are affected by an incorrectly heat-insulated garage door. Corrosion and mould can, however, be avoided. When selecting a garage door, always make sure to consider how good the heat insulation of the garage door is. A garage owner will do well with a sectional garage door. With respect to the environment, a car driver can save energy, and thus money, with a sectional garage door due to the thickly insulated panels. If a garage is poorly insulated, am unwelcome thermal bridge often develops, which results in uncontrollable energy losses. Optimal insulation significantly increases the utility of the garage.

7. Question of budget as well as design

The more cost-effective alternatives are the up-and-over garage doors. More money has to be put on the table for a modern sectional garage door. But a sectional garage door can meet various criteria such as: preventing energy loss as well as providing security, convenience and space within and outside the garage. The sectional garage door is superior to the up-and-over garage door in terms of design and modernity.

Easier parking

Easier parking

Modern cars are wider than the ones we drove 20 years ago, thus outdated up-and-over garage doors make it difficult to drive vehicles in and out. Damaged paintwork is often the consequence. Thanks to a CarTeck sectional door you will gain additional space on the side as there is no need for up-and-over door leverage mechanisms that will take up space. 



More space

More space

Remove the old up-and-over garage door – and then what? Our tip: opt for a modern sectional door. It requires very little space when opening and closing. Consequently, you will have more space to park in front of and inside the garage compared with up-and-over doors and will be able to park your vehicle directly in front of the door.

Significantly safer
