Overhead Sectional Shutter Door

Overhead sectional doors are ideal in situations where headroom may be restricted, and there is insufficient space to fit the box required for a roller shutter. This type of door slides upwards on side runners, which continue onto the roof area so that aperture space is maximized when the door is in the open position. With insulating and sound-reducing qualities, our overhead sectional doors lend themselves to a wide range of industrial and commercial environments. A foam core between the inner and outer steel sheets of the door panels prevents transmission of heat or cold, delivering a thermal performance which exceeds building regulations. These high-quality doors are extremely robust and constructed to give long service. In the event that a door incurs accidental damage, it can be easily repaired using replacement components.

Specification/Technical Data

Curtain : The curtain is constructed from galvanised continuously interlocked steel laths that are securely held in place by end locks. A number of thicknesses and profiles are available according to individual circumstances such as size, wind loading etc. Bottom rails are generally galvanised and roll-formed into a tee section.
Guides : Vertical guides are formed from rolled steel or fabricated dependent on size and are supplied with appropriate angles for fixing to the structure.
Endplates : Mild steel of appropriate thickness in relation to door thickness is prime painted and supplied with angles for fixing to he structure.
Barrel : Our barrels are normally made from a seamless steel tube of adequate diameter to counteract deflection and hold in bearings or cups attached to the endplates.
Finish : Comes galvanized with non-galvanized parts prime painted as standard. Customers can choose to have a powder coating of almost any color as an additional extra.
Operation : Shutters over smaller openings are typically powered by a 240-volt single phase tubular motor whereas larger shutters are operated using a 400-volt 3 phase geared motor. Adjustable limit switches are incorporated to stop the shutter at the end of each travel. Standard controls include open/close/stop buttons for geared motors and rocker switches on single phase tubular motors. 


Sectional overhead doors are a great addition to any home. They can be used for many purposes such as opening up a garage or even an entryway. Unlike a roller shutter door, which opens by rolling, a sectional overhead door can be opened from the side or top and is also usually wider than a standard door.

Sectional (or sectional) garage doors are large, heavy, and move up and down on tracks. They are usually made of aluminum or steel and have glass or vinyl (usually white) panels. These doors can be opened and closed by hand or by an electric motor. When open, they extend from the top of the garage ceiling to the bottom. When closed, they rest parallel with the garage ceiling. A garage door opener is a small electric motor attached to a pulley system that allows you to open and close your garage door from outside the garage.

Sectional doors are largely constructed from galvanized steel, although aluminum and timber doors are available. Most manufacturers offer woodgrain finishes with their steel doors, giving the insulation and security of steel, with the aesthetic impression that only wood can deliver. Sectional doors are designed to be used as the primary means of ingress and egress to your home, and should be a substantial part of any home’s decor. They are available in a wide variety of styles, including bi-fold, French, sliding and sliding with hardware, and many come in a wide variety of colors to coordinate with your home’s interior decor.
