Garage doors for bigger garages. Up-and-over garage doors are one piece doors that swing out and then up, lying parallel to the ceiling. They can be made from steel or wood, but glass reinforced plastic is the most common material used to make them. You need a large space before the garage door (from the ground up and from the top down) to allow the door to freely swing in its horizontal position. If you have a big garage, you should also consider the most traditional (and simplest) style of garage door - the side hung door. They hang from the side, and are basically double doors that lock in the middle.
As a general rule, the choice of garage door and garage door material is largely determined by the type of house you have, your space, and of course, your budget.
Some garage door openers offer heavier steel or a sturdier design. Some garage door openers do not use the steel chain pulley system; they use a screw threaded steel rod that turns to move the garage door up and down. If you are deciding on which type of garage door to purchase keep in mind the differences between wood and metal, the wood doors need to be taken care of just like a deck, you need to stain or paint it so it doesn’t rot, a steel door is easier to maintain. If you decide to get a steel door the main thing to check is that it has been properly prepared to prevent rust.
For the guides to be installed, you must allow 90mm as a minimum for sideroom. This is the room on the inside of the garage to the side of the main curtain but behind the garage wall entrance points. The headroom requirement is usually around 300mm, but consult your seller in order to be certain.
