When you start shopping for your garage door, purchase one that isnt too big and bulky. A large garage opener can take up most of your headroom (the available vertical space of yoru garage) and limit your storage space. It also limits what type of vehicle that can enter and be stored in your garage. For instance, SUVs will be incredibly hard to park if you have limited vertical space. Roller garage doors are less complicated to operate than sectional garage doors. They also have smaller and easier to handle panels, which greatly reduces the risk of accidents.
In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above, a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end, while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables, connectors and pulleys, the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring, the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition.
Your roller garage door comes with a remote to automatically open and close it. When you are approaching the garage door, you simply press the button on your remote, and the door opens by the time you reach the garage. Then, you drive in, press the button again and the door automatically closes. The Genie garage door opener utilizes their Intellicode software that changes the passcode that is transmitted from their garage remote to the garage to open it. You never have to worry about some electronically stealing your passcode, copying it, and opening it without your persission.
Based on the requirements you may choose any one from Roller garage door, Sectional garage door, Side-hinged garage door or Up-and-over garage door. Roller garage doors as the name suggests roll up into the drum located just above the opening of the door. Sectional garage doors are essentially the same except that they do not protrude in the driveway making it safe for car to be parked. Side-hinged garage doors preserve the interior space of the garage room. You can optimize by studying pros and cons of aspects like these when choosing a garage door.
