Garage Door. Saturday , December 09th , 2017 - 06:05:55 AM
Retractable Doors: This type of garage door swings outwards, up and back into the ceiling of your garage. The pivot points of the doors are located at the top and this makes you unable to park your vehicle close to it. You should always ensure enough room is available on your driveway. The installation is easy. These types of doors are the easiest ones to be automated with a suitable electric opener. They provide good security to your vehicles and they are fitted with four latches. They're available in timber, GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), steel and ABS. One point to note though is that this door provides you with a reduced drive-through width, due to side spring assemblies.
Today, modern garages are designed to look as nice as the main house. In fact, some don't even look like garages anymore because they have the same finishing elements as the house itself. If you are not convinced, check out some websites that have photo galleries of garages. You would be amazed at the wonderful construction and designs of these. Indeed, a modern garage is more than just a storage space, but something that complements the main house beautifully.
In contrast to an overhead type of garage door, be it sectional or single panel, roll up doors have a totally different type of operating system. When these doors are used, they can be concealed in an overhead or under mounted trough. These doors operate similarly to a roll top desk door except for how they are stored when not in the closed position. They normally coil as they are retracted, and require significant gear trains to reduce the effort required to move these doors up and down into position. Often the forces needed to move these roll up doors require a reduction type of transmission that allows a very heavy door to be operated effortlessly. These doors can be chain driven either manually, or can be automated using electric motors. Roll up doors require more frequent evaluation and servicing than a standard overhead garage door. The tracks that are mounted vertically on both sides of the garage opening need maintenance and cleaning more frequently, and are often blocked by foreign obstructions or damaged by collision of some type. These roll up doors are often held open by some type of ratcheting action. Proper balancing of these doors is often more important than an overhead type of door, as the weight of these type of doors is normally much greater than an overhead door.
