Garage door is a large door on a garage that opens either manually or by an electric motor (a garage door opener). Garage Doors are basically of two types.

  1. Residential Garage Doors

There are several type options for commercial garage doors.

  1. Overhead Doors
  2. Roll Up Door
  3. Fire Rated Doors
  4. Scissor Gates

1) Overhead Doors

They are named such, because they are lifted via a track or rail until they are horizontal with the ceiling. Overhead doors are either operated manually or motorized using a remote unit. They are made from different materials that can range from glass and aluminum to wood or metal.

2) Roll Up Door

The name says it all. Roll up doors roll up in to a single coil when lifted. With roll up doors the slats are much thinner than on an overhead door in order to allow for maximum flexibility so that it can roll with ease. Roll up doors are ideal in situations where rails for overhead doors either get in the way or there is no accommodation for rails such as a wide open warehouse. 

3) Fire Rated Doors

These doors operate in much the same way as roll up doors. They are raised and lowered either manually or using motorized equipment. The biggest difference is that they provide greater protection than most standard roll up doors. They come with auto closing features in the event that a fire is detected.

4) Scissor Gates

These doors use a unique design scissor gate doors move from left to right like a sliding door and lock like a normal door once closed. They are constructed from high quality impenetrable steel in order to give you ultimate protection. If used for an outside entryway scissor gate doors work really well.
