Garage Door Sounds


Bradford Garage Doors has been providing homeowners with quiet closing garage doors in the Bradford area for a number of years. Whether these are manual or automatically operated, sectional or side hinged, in years gone past people wanted doors that were quiet and made little if any noise.

In city centres like Bradford here multiple people may live on top of a garage, this is also another important factor.

We were thus shocked to hear of a story in America where a gentleman had filmed and recorded the noise his up and over garage door makes when it closes, appealing to compare the noise to that of a T-rex, the dinosaur made famous in the Jurassic Park film series.

The gentleman was so convinced his door sounded like one of the most famous dinosaurs noises that he posted the video on YouTube where it has been viewed many times. What is even more surprising is instead of people complain about the noise, which is often one of the reason people consider changing or making repairs to their doors, many have been complimenting it on its noise, with one comment saying that he thinks the noise is great.

Such is the hype and buzz around this phenomena, more people all over the world are taking videos of other objects which sound like animals and putting them online. Things include car doors, fridges and even the bath tub all sounding like wild animals.

At Bradford Garage Doors, we understand that whilst some people might like a noisy garage door, the general consensus is that they should be quiet. If you are looking for a way to improve the sound reduction of your door, or would like a new up and over, sectional or roller garage door that is quiet to open and close, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team today by calling 01274 352 303.
