Do you have a short driveway?

But with lots of new build housing developments it is all too common a sight.

Luckily, we offer styles of door, specifically engineered to get around such a problem. The Garador sectional garage door, for example, rises vertically and then runs on tracks back into the garage, without any ‘kick out’ that you normally get with a traditional Up and Over garage door. Ultimately, fitting the sectional garage door results in no loss of driveway space in front of the the garage door, giving maximum parking space and allowing you to park up as close as you want to the garage door. Furthermore, you don’t have any loss of drive through width in the garage door opening, which might be taken up by the design of the lifting gear on some doors. So you can take advantage of the full garage door opening, a key consideration for homeowners with wider vehicles such as 4x4s and MPVs such as vans and people carriers.

A Garador sectional garage door is often the door of choice as it aesthetically stunning and will enhance the look of a property. A sectional garage door is undoubtedly a more sophisticated door design, giving the impression of a more modern home and a great first impression. With more moving parts it is more complex, but is less likely to go wrong in the long term. The doors come in a wide variety of designs and colours; including Linear and Georgian designs and over 16 standard colour options. This gives enough choice to suit even the most particular tastes or architectural features. With a full range of size options, including standard and purpose made, there really is a door for every requirement and every build.

As with all Garador garage doors, the sectional door range offer excellent security and reliability. Sturdy rubber weather seals on all sides of the door ensure maximum weather proofing and 42mm thick door sections on Premium models ensures terrific thermal insulation. This has to be the best choice for integral garages and workshops where thermal insulation is paramount. A classic single skinned range is also available at a very competitive price point. Superior operating lifting gear provides smooth operations and the doors are totally reliable, safe and low maintenance.

It’s the best sectional garage door currently available on the market, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out the sectional garage doors video on the Garador YouTube channel, view the sectional garage doors range on our website or find your nearest Garador stockist or installer.
