Slatted or blocked sectional wooden garage doors
Sectional wooden garage doors are manufactured and available in a number of designs. The number and size of panels will depend on the size of the garage door opening, and they are available for both single and double garages. A typical sectional door for a double garage might have between eight and ten panels across and usually five hinged panels from top to bottom. A door can be ordered that has the top row of panels containing windows. The door slide from their outer edges into a recessed metal track that is attached to the garage ceiling. Sectional doors can be either manual or automatic.
Tip-up wooden garage doors
Tip-up wooden garage doors can be hand operated or automated. These doors are available in a number of designs and operate with jamb arms on either side of the door, opening the solid panel half in and half out of the garage door opening. It usually gets fitted onto openings where headroom in the garage is a problem.
