Garage doors can be of different types, sectional, swing, roll up garage doors, according to their different types of structure and opening. The swinging garage doors are usually the most frequent since they take advantage of the available space very well. Its mechanism is based on a spring that works with torsion. This element, which is hidden behind the lintel, provides the precise force to the lateral arms so that they can raise the blade.
On the sides, the vertical guides are located. For its part, the roll up garage doors takes its name from its horizontal sections, formed from double slats that, in the opening, lifting and folding phases, run parallel to the roof. Sectional doors have several objective advantages compared to the other types of automatic garage doors.
The roll up garage doors hide better than the other doors. The mechanism that allows moving the sections is installed on the roof. In this way the space is recovered in the opening phase and once opened, since it does not protrude towards the outside and it is difficult for it to hit the vehicle. The sectional garage doors usually have a higher quality in security, are better reinforced and provide a higher level of thermal and acoustic insulation.
