Sectional Overhead Garage Door panels slide into the headroom section by section. Low heardoom kits are available to accomodate very low ceilings.
These doors are available in the same materials as Tip-Up Garage Door namely: Wood, Metal, Fibreglass and Aluminium. Standard sizes are 2.4 x 2.1 and 4.8 x 2.1.
These Metal Roll-Up Doors are a good fit for a tight budget. However, they do not quite stand the test of time in areas close to the coast. Rather opt for a standard tip-up or sectional door. Roll-Up doors are available in standard brown or white. Standard sizes are 2.4 x 2.1 for a single door.
Industrial Roll-Up Doors and normal Roll-Up Doors work the same way.
The difference is that the domestic roll-up door is used in the household or domestic sector. The Industrial Roll-Up door is made of a heavier metal and is therefore stronger than the Metal Roll-Up Door. The Industrial door can be made to almost any size.
