Why choose a sectional garage door?
The basic advantage over up and over doors is that it does not swing out when opening or closing as the whole door is split horizontally into 4 or more panels which operate in vertical tracks that curve at the top into horizontal tracks to follow the garage roofline.
The individual panels have two rollers per panel giving a very rigid and positive movement and enabling large widths to be used when the door panels are double skinned.
This type of garage door mechanism can also go higher than most other door types and is easily converted to remote control operation.
