Choosing a Garage Door Profile

Choosing a Garage Door Profile

Choosing the look of your new garage door might strike you as equally fun and daunting. Do you know the difference between all the flat-panelled doors and which is strongest? Starting with the facts on each profile will help to simplify the task.

Sierra

Sierra's crisp, minimal appearance fits beautifully with modern homes. This premium garage door is created by folding heavy-gauge 0.75BMT steel to produce a truly flat panel. Sierra remains super strong while sitting lightly on the landscape.

Nevada

Our top of range, premium garage door cuts a striking profile with flat panels and negative detailing that serves to strengthen and beautify. Made from heavy-gauge, 0.75BMT steel, Nevada looks contemporary but actually holds its own alongside any style of home.

Nevada and Sierra Sectional Doors are available in Zincalume® and a limited range of pre-painted steel colours, plus two new Premium Matte Colours. Alternatively, they can be powder coated from our wide range of Dulux Powders options.

Camden

Our most popular door, Camden has a ribbed profile with an understated smooth finish. The medium gauge 0.55BMT steel is roll-formed to create a look that is just as appealing with contemporary cladding as it is alongside weatherboard. Windows are available with Camden as an optional extra.

undefined

Aspen

Aspen has all the appeal of a flat panelled garage door at an economical price point. The wide, smooth panels of Aspen will be roll-formed from medium gauge 0.55BMT steel to the specifications of your garage opening. Add windows for natural light and street appeal.

Newport

Newport is a great all-rounder option with the strength of medium gauge 0.55BMT steel and the flexibility to choose woodgrain or smooth finish. A mix of deep and fine horizontal ribs add interest and boost durability. Our most economical garage door also comes with the option to add windows.

Allegra

Sitting somewhere between a flat and a ribbed panel, Allegra's streamlined look is smooth, simplistic and modern. We added a single rib through the centre of each roll-formed, medium gauge 0.55BM steel panel to create a garage door with universal appeal. Add windows as an optional extra.

^ Primarily an Australian Colorbond® Colour
* Normally acceptable imperfections that are inherent with flatter door styles may be visually enhanced by darker door colours such as those marked.

Patterned garage door panels create a look of refined elegance while they provide strength and rigidity. The decorative panels will often be matched with a traditional home, but can also provide interesting detail to modern buildings. We offer two styles, each pressed from medium gauge 0.6BMT steel.

Grange

Garador Grange is distinguished by rectangular panels 370mm in height and 990mm in width. The panel count is spaced evenly over the width of each made-to-measure garage door. Available in smooth or woodgrain finish with windows as an optional extra.

undefined

Statesman

The pressed panels on Garador Statesman are a near square shape at 370mm high x 535mm wide. As with Grange, the number of pressings across your door is determined by the overall width of the opening and the resulting amount is spaced out evenly. Like Grange, Statesman is also available in smooth or woodgrain finish with windows as an optional extra.
