Sectional Garage Doors Melbourne

Garage Door & Gate Solutions Pty Ltd offers a large range of sectional garage doors in and around Melbourne. Here, you will find an extensive range of products at affordable rates


Sectional garage doors in Melbourne are usually made up of 4 or 5 horizontal panels that are hinged together from behind, and torsion spring* balanced. Sectional doors open vertically with each panel turning 90 as the door goes up to eventually lay horizontal under the ceiling when open.

These sectional garage doors are made in a wide variety of materials and styles, from practical Color bond steel to the warmth of genuine timber, from raised pattern or embossed styles to contemporary flat finishes, designed to blend into ultra modern homes.

Most sectional garage doors in Melbourne are made to measure and economically mass produced. Alternatively, we produce highly customized designs by request, using materials such as aluminum, steel and glass and regularly work with home owners, builders, designers and architectsin as little as 250mm clearance from the top of the door opening to the ceiling ("headroom"). Standard headroom equipment however, always works best and costs the least, requiring between 260mm and 400mm, depending on the model of door.

Sectional doors can work in as little as 250mm clearance from the top of the door opening to the ceiling ("headroom"). Standard headroom equipment however, always works best and costs the least, requiring between 260mm and 400mm, depending on the model of door.

The headroom needed for sectional garage doors in Melbourne is needed all the way back into the garage to the back of the door opener, sometimes up to 4 meters behind the doorway.

Typically, sizes of sectional garage doors range from under 2100mm high x 2400mm wide to 2850mm high x 6530mm wide.

*Torsion springs twist as they wind up and unwind. All garage door springs, when wound up hold an enormous amount of tension, even when open, balancing the weight of the door as it opens and closes, and as such should only be adjusted by experienced professionals using correct equipment.
