What is a ‘Panelift’ or ‘Sectional’ Garage Door?

A panelift garage door, also known as a sectional garage door, is a door that often comprises of multiple panels coated with a stylish finish such as a woodgrain or textured effect in the colour of your choice.

Instead of rolling into a curtain like old fashioned Roller Doors, sectional garage doors progressively roll backwards into your garage via a series of steel tracks along the roof.

The sectional garage door design has become the staple garage door in any modern home. The door oozes class and a modern feel, particularly when the panels are ordered in a weatherboard or slat-like appearance to match existing cladding on the home.
