Up and Over Garage Doors from Wakefield Garage Doors
Up and Over Garage Doors are very popular. They are the perfect choice if you need a quick affordable and effective solution for your garage. Simple to operate, Up and Over Garage Doors Wakefield are available in many designs and colour options including the most popular Vertical design and Horizontal design. When we quote you for an Up and Over Garage Door, it will be either a HORMANN, GARADOR, or a NOVOFERM. All are very similar in quality and design. All our Up and Over Garage Doors are made of steel, powdered coated (for minimum maintenance) and come complete with a new steel frame. When we install your new Up and Over Garage Door, our Installation Teams will advise you how to maintain your New Garage Door to keep it in good working order. There are two types of Up and Over Garage Doors - a Retractable Gear and a Canopy Gear. Most people actually don't realise this and don't know what type they have until they need a replacement Garage Door.
Canopy Garage Doors
Up and Over Garage Doors are simple, affordable and easy maintain. If you choose a Canopy Up and Over Garage Door (Canopy Gear), the door panel will run vertically on tracks on the side frame and a spring assembly on the top frame. When the Canopy Garage Door is open, the door panel will protrude approximately 1/3 forming a canopy. Thus, giving it the name Canopy Garage Door. There are no tracks running back into the garage when the door is closed, leaving the roof space clear inside the garage which can be used for storage and the drive through width slightly wider.
Retractable Garage Doors
An Up and Over Retractable Garage Door (Retractable Gear), so called because the door panel retracts fully into the garage when the Garage Door is open. A Retractable Garage Door runs on vertical tracks which extend into the roof space of the garage. The disadvantage of a Retractable Garage Door is that the drive through width is reduced as the lifting arms sit between the sub frame when the door is open. However, if the garage is not used to house your car, a Retractable Garage Door is perfectly adequate for most.
Both types of door can be automated using our SOMMER Operators. Many Garage Door Companies, will advise that they are unable to automate a Canopy Garage Door. Wakefield Garage Doors are experts in automation and we are able to automate Canopy Garage Doors using our conversion kits.
