Sectional Garage Doors | 1st Auto Garage Doors Ltd.

A sectional garage door is ideal for several reasons. Stylistically, it sets a distinguished tone. It is also perfect for denser residential settings, or for driveways which have very tight vertical space constraints. When the sectional garage door opens, it seems to disappear into the structure itself, as panel by panel gently recedes out of view. Because of this intrinsic elegance, sectional garage doors have become immensely popular in respectable homes and in urban institutions where a stylish visual appearance is vital. Sectional garage doors can be furnished with a variety of amenities, including windows, cast-iron fixtures, or ornamental scroll work. Depending on the budget, incredibly distinctive fixtures can be custom designed to the owner’s specifications.

Mechanically, the garage door is designed to run smoothly on tracks under the ledge of the garage, so that the door never sticks out or otherwise blocks the vertical line of the structure. Sectional doors can be designed to fit virtually any height or space constraints. Those individuals or companies who drive lorries can specify taller sectional doors to suit their vehicles. Sectional doors can be programmed to remain half-open for those individuals who enjoy working in the garage during the day. Of course, in colder weather, windows on the sectional garage door provide sufficient light to make working inside the garage a pleasurable experience.

Because of their flexibility, sectional garage doors are also extraordinarily durable. Provided they are secured properly, the rubber linings along the base and edges of the door create a weather proof perimeter, while the tightly engineered connections between each panel stand up well to severe wind and storms. The material of the panels themselves are coated with weather proof glazing, making them invincible to rain, sleet, and snow. They make excellent investments for homeowners and business owners who wish to present the best possible public face on a relatively reasonable budget.
