How does a sectional door work?

Let’s start with the basics… First you need to understand how a sectional works technically .

It must be said that this type of closure is innovative as the doors are composed of horizontal steel panels internally insulated and connected to each other by hinges.

The panels slide inside the garage on special vertical guides, curve in minimal spaces and completely free the entrance compartment going to “disappear” arranging itself parallel to the ceiling .

The installation is guaranteed even in the presence of sloping ceilings or in the absence of masonry bundles, as they will be made by us with aluminum tubes in the same finish as the door.

There is also a lateral sliding version where the sectional doors slide on guides placed on the floor and ceiling, curve and, in the phase of maximum opening, remain adjacent to a wall inside the room.

This solution is ideal in situations where it is necessary to eliminate the obstruction in the architrave because it provides for the sliding of the panels without the use of floor trolleys. The hermetic closure is guaranteed by a mix of rubber seals and brushes on the entire perimeter.
