Sectional garage doors open and close vertically making them extremely practical especially for people who may be short of space on their driveway, or just want to park their vehicle right up to the garage door and still be able to open it.
Not only are sectional garage doors practical for access, they are extremely strong, energy efficient and weather resistant which is why we supply and install the Alutech brand. Below we explore reasons why to choose a sectional garage door for your garage;
Sectional garage doors include thermal insulation U which equals 1.35 W/(m2K) comparable to a 55cm thick brick wall. This means they are fantastic for keeping your home warm during the colder months (if your garage is attached) and maximising energy efficiency.
What’s more the side and top seals have two leaves forming an additional air chamber which substantially reduces heat loss.
The fantastic thing about Alutech sectional doors is that the sandwich panels have a closed loop design where steel sheets are interfixed to lock. This design prevents delaminating from the sun, or even if the door meets a sudden obstruction, your sectional garage door is protected.
Even in extreme cases of high winds, these garage doors can withstand a wind load of 700 Pa, which corresponds to a wind speed of 120 km/h.
In addition, the doors have undergone independent tests which resulted in a product which withstands harsh weather, such as protection from 15 years exposure in coastal areas or even heavily polluted regions.
There are 5 panel types and 17 standard colours, all doors are made to measure to suit any style of opening, and you can choose from;
S-ribbed (small ribbed panels)
M-ribbed (medium ribbed panels)
L-ribbed (large ribbed panels)
Georgian (georgian styled panels)
In addition, windows can be installed in these sectional doors and you can choose from a manual or automated lock.
