Sectional Doors vs Roller Doors


It’s a known fact in the garage door industry that roller garage doors are King here in the UK. It is no surprise, they are neat, compact and look exceptional – but sectional garage doors are creeping up behind them, and it’s time Huddersfield customers took notice.

So what are the differences between sectional and roller garage doors?

Sectional Garage Door:

  • These garage doors come in almost any colour paint finish imaginable and also include metallic and woodgrain finishes
  • They require space inside the garage for the horizontal trucks
  • They boast many door designs
  • They come in single or double skin galvanized steel panels making them very secure
  • Other materials include aluminum, GRP and timber
  • The size of sectional garage doors can be up to 8 metres wide and 5 metres high
  • Are available as either manual or automatic doors
  • Sectional garage doors are secure by nature and can even have windows fitted
  • They are extremely insulated and weather proof
