A brief history about the garage doors

It was in 450 BC that the concept of garage doors actually came into existence when chariots were stored in gatehouses and not until the start of 20th century these garage doors got introduced in the U.S. The upward lifting garage door has been found in a catalog in 1906 and since then it has seen several innovations and improvements.

What is a ‘garage door’?

As per Wikipedia, ‘a garage door is a large door on a garage that opens either manually or by an electric motor (a garage door opener).

Garage doors are large enough for accommodating big automobiles and other vehicles. These doors could be made out of a single panel that is built to tilt up and back across the garage ceiling. And the larger doors are mostly made in a number of jointed panels that roll up across the ceiling of the garage on tracks or into a roll above the doorway.

Garage doors can be made of various materials but the most popular ones are steel, aluminum, wood, copper, glass and vinyl and fiberglass can also be used and they are all usually insulated to prevent loss of heat.

Different types of garage doors

Single panel garage doors: Constructed from one monolithic panel it has some disadvantages, the swing up arc of the door is partially outside the garage and this necessitates parking of the vehicle at least several feet from the door to avoid being hit by the door.

Sectional garage doors:  These are constructed with three to eight panels and slide upward overhead and each panel has its own connection to the door track for reliability and strength of the doors.

Roller doors: They are usually made out of corrugated steel and the concept has evolved from cover window and door coverings.
