Large openings and strong outdoor connections are essential to a garage or overhead. The door can be a more cost-effective solution worth considering while originally intended for purely utilitarian spaces. Some luxury garage doors have adopted such a level of finish and style. you wouldn’t want to park a car anywhere near them. Overhead doors are available in three primary types panel, coiling and sectional.
Panel garage door
The panel door is made to pivot out of the way. The door panel moves up and out of the way in one single motion. Now there are fewer joints but space is required in front of the door as it swings outward before traveling vertically.
Coiling garage door
The second type is a coiling door commonly these are seen in warehouses or covering urban storefronts. These doors are heavy-duty industrial and feel and usually solid.
Sectional garage door
The sectional door type is perhaps the most common and it’s the one we’ll focus on it’s comprised of horizontal sections. Usually 12 to 24 inches high. That is mated by hinges to each adjacent section the taller, the section, the fewer, the panels and joints. But the trade-off is a larger radius for the track when you’re transitioning it out of the way overhead up and away. Unlike a traditional sliding swinging or folding door, the overhead sectional door conveniently lifts out of the way. This frees up floor space and eliminates the need to find a place to stack the door panels. It also allows for a seamless connection between inside and out well. It doesn’t consume floor space, it does need a place to go when open either a wall or a ceiling.
If your ceiling is tall enough the panel can lift vertically. If it isn’t you’ll need to think carefully about your ceiling space. Especially when designing the lighting plan this upward pivoting 20-foot tall. Sectional door opens this entire penthouse apartment to the city and offers proof that. When carefully designed the overhead door can work in almost any climate even one as extreme as New York’s.
The pivoting panels create a folded glazed for the outdoor area too. The entire wall one on each end of the room dissolves to connect the living space to the outdoors. The most appealing uses of sectional doors in the home are the ones that stretched the openings to the full width of the adjoining space. They appear the most transformative between open and closed. The most logically integrated into the architecture.
