One of the most recognisable garage door types is the up and over garage door, and at Wolverine Garage Doors, we’ve been supplying, fitting and maintaining them in and around the Reading area for decades.
While there are many other garage door types available these days, such as the roller garage door, some people prefer the familiarity and simplicity of the up and over garage door.
Up and over garage doors are often made from a single panel, and are available in a wide range of materials and colours
Very easy to operate and are low maintenance and long lasting
While not included as standard, retractable up and over garage doors can be motorised for automation
Because of their single panel design, they boast high security and reliability
The canopy solutions is arguably one of the most cost-efficient doors on the market
Up and over garage doors offer maximum drive-through width when open
What’s the Difference Between Canopy and Retractable?
The canopy up and over garage door is one of the most common designs, and is named such because of its position when open, with around a third of the door protruding outside of the opening.
This is one of the easiest garage doors to install, though if you want to automate your garage door a retractable up and over is better for this.
A retractable up and over garage door uses a different mechanism, with the door retracting fully inside of the opening.
Their mechanism provides higher lifting power, allowing them to support larger door sizes. They are also perfect for motorisation/automation, allowing the door to smoothly open and retract at the push of a button.
If you’re not sure what option is best for you, we can guide you through the process and ensure you make the right decision for your needs and usage.
