Garage door types


There are many types of garage doors that are available to you, but there will only be one that is perfect for your home. Numerous things need to be taken in to account when you’re choosing such as aesthetics, security levels, insulation levels and so much more.

Each garage door has its own benefits and some are better than others at certain things. For example, a roller garage door has arguably the best security, but it doesn’t add to a home’s exterior as much as a side hinged does.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits, operation and key features of each of the garage doors on offer to you here at Huddersfield Garage Doors.


The most popular garage door in the UK and here at Huddersfield Garage Doors, the sectional garage door is attractive and secure – everything you need from a garage door. The door opens vertically and thanks to its hinges, the door can bend rather than swing out meaning you lose no driveway space and increase storage space inside the garage.

The sectional garage door has very little pivot points meaning it has great security levels – better yet, if you automate it, it removes the need for any pivot points and therefore making it even more secure.

  • Three levels of insulation
  • Fantastic security
  • Manual or electric operation available
  • Every door comes with 10-year warranty
  • Attractive
  • Available in a wide range of colours


As previously mentioned, the roller garage door is arguably our most secure and reliable garage door. This door essentially opens vertically and the compact slats that the roller is made up of will tightly roll around a drum which is stored in a box located above the doors opening. Thanks to the way it operates, the roller garage door is excellent at saving space as it doesn’t require any driveway space and you don’t need to leave the roof free unlike the sectional or up and over garage door.

As well as being available in over 200 colours and a number of finishes, the roller doors on offer to you are made up from corrosion-free aluminium, providing a longer life span as well as an added level of convenience both inside and outside the garage.


  • Fits virtually any opening
  • 10-year warranty
  • Glazing options supplied on request
  • Electric operation as standard
  • Great insulation

Up and over

The perfect choice for many of our customers, the up and over garage door is extremely reliable, durable and extremely attractive. The up and over is also known as the traditional garage door, and it hasn’t changed its operation since it was first created, which says a lot about the door and the way it operates.

We’ve been a provider of this type of garage door for a quarter of a century and throughout this time its reputation for quality, value for money and service has only grown. The door opens vertically and slides back through the roof, which is where it is stored – the only downside is the fact it swings out in operation.


  • Heavy duty powder coated finishes
  • Extensive range of designs of available
  • 10-year warranty
  • Reliable
  • Great value for money
  • Massive range of colour finishes
