When you decide it is time to to replace your existing garage door, you can choose between :
- Up and over garage doors
- Sectional garage doors
- Roller garage doors
- Side-hinged garage doors
- Sliding and folding garage doors.
Of the designs listed above, up and over garage doors are amongst the most popular garage doors for UK homeowners today. They are easy to operate, featuring one-piece panel construction and very low maintenance requirements. If you’re looking for a compact garage door solution where space is at a premium, then a garage door that retracts into the garage when it's opened might be the perfect solution.
Up and over garage door design
An up and over garage door consists of a single galvanised door leaf with spring-mounted lever arms at both sides. A simple upwards push opens the door, and a gentle pull downwards closes it again. Because the door leaf swings outwards, both opening and closing only requires a small volume of space. Up and over garage doors are fitted with an anti-drop device that prevents the door from falling down in the event of a failure, and they feature four locking points for extra security.
Styles of up and over garage doors
There are two main choices when it comes to up and over garage doors :
- Canopy up and over garage doors
- Retractable up and over garage doors
Canopy up and over garage door - This style of garage door rolls up vertically, before being held horizontally in place by two rolling wheels and a folding arm on each side, leaving a canopy a third of the size of the door protruding outside of the garage. Canopy up and over garage doors require no tracks to be fitted inside the garage, instead tracks are fitted at the edges of the door, which saves garage space, A canopy up and over garage door is very cost-effective, featuring a simple design with straightforward manual operation and minimal maintenance.
Retractable up & over garage doors - This design of garage door is similar in function to a canopy up and over garage door, but without the canopy. A retractable garage door doesn't protrude from the garage, instead it retracts into the garage itself via roller wheels that are mounted on horizontal tracks inside your garage. They can cost more than canopy up and over garage doors, but they are typically operated electronically, instead of manually.
