Up & over garage door


Up and over garage doors started emerging at the same time as motor powered transport was becoming more and more common. Up and over garage doors have been a popular variant of garages amongst garage owners due to the effective yet simplistic nature of their features.

Up and over garage doors have seen several changes their appearance over the years but have always maintained a peace of mind for the owner due to the security provided by the one panel securing the contents inside. With different security methods available such as four-point locking amongst others, the up and over door can be acquired for a reasonable price which proves to yield a high value for money.

The two types of these garage doors available to Bradford Garage Doors customers are the canopy and retractable variations. The canopy styled door, whilst simple to install utilises a spring and cable pulley system that encourages a safe opening of the door without giving up too much space width-wise. The canopy suits any opening which is 8 feet wide and ensures maximum drive space due to the vacancy of any side attachments.

The retractable up and over garage door is more suited to openings that are more than 8 feet wide. This door offers a much more stable opening using extremely strong mechanisms that are fitted at the sides of the garage opening. What the retractable door has which the canopy door doesn’t is greater height clearance.

As technology has advanced in accordance with the development of this popular choice of door, up and over garages are available to be automated at your wish. Bradford Garage Doors can provide this service so you can store your vehicle without even getting out of it.

One factor as to why the up and over styled garage door is that they’re available in many different finishes and materials. Here at Bradford Garage Doors we can provide said doors in fibre-glass, timber or steel in a much wider pallet of colours so that your new garage door can fit right in with your home.
