% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Modern garage doors are a practical and effective solution for your household. Today, many different types of garage doors differ in their design features and installation methods. Buying garage door repair and installation services means basic protection and the opportunity to create an original design and style. The door itself is most often an element to complete the exterior of the house.

However, before buying a new door it’s important to learn more about all market’s options to choose the best one. In order to ensure long-term service and high quality of the doors, please, check all these significant points and characteristics covered in this article below.

Types of garage doors

Today modern models of doors are characterized by high energy efficiency, reliability, and attractive design. Eventually, every owner of a private building has to choose a garage door that can meet all requirements as much as possible. Moreover, the door should provide not only physical security but also reliable thermal insulation to preserve the desired microclimate inside the room.


Today, the range of the company, such as ST Garage Door, includes many models of modern industrial doors for private households of various designs:


  1. Sectional;
  2. Lifting and turning;
  3. High-speed;
  4. Rolls;
  5. Pendulum;
  6. Retractable.


All of them provide maximum space savings, have high thermal insulation properties, and minimize the negative atmospheric impact on the premises. And automation for garage doors allows you to control the doors remotely from mobile gadgets, ensures reliable operation of the mechanisms, and does not require frequent visits to the garage door firm for repair and installation services.

Quality doors are the key to safety and energy efficiency


Manufacturers or door companies, like STI Garage Door, offer several types of lifting doors for a private garage:

Sectional models

The canvas of this design consists of sections, the width of which is about half a meter. Rotary mechanisms interconnect them and provide reliable tightness thanks to high-quality seals around the perimeter and smooth lifting under the ceiling. Another significant advantage of this design is an extended drive. Industrial sectional doors have gained particular popularity due to their small penetration depth, which allows them to be used in large-scale commercial real estate premises: whether it is a warehouse or a production workshop.

Lifting and turning models

They are the most popular and structurally simple. The basis of the construction of such a door is a solid canvas. Ascent to the ceiling and descent are carried out thanks to a reliable hinge-lever mechanism. The main advantage of such a design compared to a sectional one is the absence of joints on the canvas and, accordingly, a higher level of tightness and physical security against hacking. Manufacturers offer their customers several materials for lift-and-turn doors, including high-quality Nordic spruce and steel in a variety of colors.

Roll models

This design ensures maximum space savings both in the garage and in front of it. The doors work according to the principle of shutters. The lifting leaf is fixed in a special box, which is installed above the door opening. They take up minimal space and can be controlled remotely.

Sliding doors for wide traffic areas

This design of entrance doors is usually installed on wide areas of passage, so they are most often installed in industrial facilities. Manufacturers offer sliding doors for businesses, which are made of high-quality steel and can open to a width of up to 16 meters. A special tension roller is used to accurately adjust the height of the passage area. And opening/closing is carried out using a modern HSA electric drive with impulse control.

Door control

The basis of the lifting door design is the web and the automatic opening mechanism, which allows you to use no physical effort to open/close the door. Lifting structures can always be opened and closed comfortably. For this, a set with automation is provided, which simplifies the management of all processes. Manual control is rarely used. In this case, a handle, rope or chain gear is mounted if the canvas is too heavy. Balance is guaranteed by special springs.


Automation is used for smooth and comfortable opening. The only condition that needs to be fulfilled is to submit a command. For this, a special keyboard, switch or remote control is used.


Most often, German or Italian automation is used. These are two reliable options that ensure durability and stability in work. The warranty is from 2 to 5 years, provided that it is used correctly according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and you can be sure that you don’t need to apply for a garage door company for repair or new installation solutions.


Key door standards

These parameters can be considered simultaneously advantages of the roller structure:


  1. Improved thermal insulation. The effectiveness of the door in preserving heat can be ensured even in the most extreme northern regions, providing a normal microclimate inside the garage.
  2. Corrosion resistance. Zinc coating, soil layer, and paint are the best option for countering any influences.
  3. Individual approach. Manufacturers are ready to produce doors with a step of 5 mm, guaranteeing compliance with even the most demanding customers.
  4. Long service life. The resource of most mechanisms is 25,000 cycles.
  5. Universal installation. The fabric of the garage door is adjusted to the room with different features and characteristics.


Manufacturers offer customers an impressive selection of design options. The outer side can have up to 40 different shades. There is also an option for additional decoration of the facade. Those who wish can choose wood, stone, and even brick designs. At the same time, the principles of digital printing are used.
