Retractable Up & Over Garage Doors
The retractable garage door is becoming the more popular type of up and over garage door mechanism in the UK, its name derived from the garage door panel retracting almost fully into the garage when open. It is the mechanism that will convert easily and safely into remote control electric operation with the least equipment required. The drive-through width on a retractable mechanism is always reduced as the lifting arms sit in between the sub-frame when the door is opened so be careful when limited for width that you do not restrict access too much.
The retractable mechanism can take much heavier loads with tension springs at the sides easily increased in size and strength if required. It is generally considered smoother and easier to operate. You will get this type of gear on all doors wider than 2438mm (8 feet).
Another version of up and over garage door is the canopy door in which the running gear runs vertically in the side runners, still providing another alternative in design to a conventional up and over door.
The up and over style range is vast and diverse, so choosing a style to suit the property is no major task. Doors available in a variety of sizes and styles to suit any property. We only supply top quality products from the main suppliers:-
