Retractable Doors

A large proportion of the door swings outwards as it opens and then slides away into the ceiling of your garage, pivot points are located at the top of the door, consequently a little more room is required outside the garage door to open it. These doors are fairly easy to install with spring assemblies being fitted to the side frames and tracks to the top which support the top of the door, the latter being secured a couple of meters into your garage.  They are however the easiest type of door to automate with any electric opener being suitable.  Security is generally pretty good with manufacturers offering 2 and 4 point locking options and when automated these latches are disabled and the door is then held securely by the motor and if further security is required, an automatic de-latching system is available.Retractable doors are generally available in all materials: Steel, Timber, GRP and ABS.  Pre-framed versions are available but they can also be fitted to existing timber frames. Drive-though width will be slightly reduced because of the side spring assemblies, although some manufacturers have an optional mechanism which avoids this. These doors are very popular along with sectional doors.
