Overflowing Garage Doors And Overflowing Garage Door.

Posted on

The overflow garage doors can only be installed as a replacement of old doors in poor condition that we already have installed.

By regulation, they can not be installed in new construction. Available in galvanized, lacquered or imitation wood finishes. Blind or pierced.

They are a relatively inexpensive option ( price garage door overflowing white, brown or beige finish, measures 3x2m from € 461 plus VAT without installation or engine).

Recommended for private garages or community garages for low-medium traffic (I insist that by regulation they are only suitable for replacing overflowing garage doors installed previously).

With the possibility of the inscribed pedestrian door with an opening to the outside also by regulation and to be able to comply with CE marking.

There are three models of motors for swinging garage doors , with installation on the leaf (as long as we do not have a pedestrian door, and the garage door is not overflowing), on the roof with a chain track as in the image (also the there are with strap) and lateral with opinion of direct attack to axis.

The choice of a motor model for swinging garage door or other will depend on the conditions that we find on site and whether it is for sporadic, medium or intensive use.

The overflowing garage doors were designed following the regulations that prohibited the installation of overflows (for safety, to avoid invading the street, with the consequent risk of running into pedestrians).

The finishes, recommendations of installation and motorization areas are identical to those mentioned in the previous paragraphs (overflowing).

From my point of view, both economically (almost equal conditions …) and aesthetically I prefer the sectional garage doors (of which we will discuss in the next position).

Price garage door swinging blind non-overflow, with a white finish, measures 3×2.2m from € 710 plus VAT. Installation, pedestrian door, and automation not included.

They are doors that work compensated by lateral springs (in the case of overflowing garage doors) or with springs installed on its upper shaft (in the case of non-overflowing tilt garage doors).

This means that in the case of not being automatic, that is to say, they work manually, it facilitates the uploading by not having to carry the full weight of the sheet. Even when we open at half height do not fall suddenly due to gravity (provided that the springs are correctly tensioned).

Another interesting fact regarding safety for garage doors. Fall protection systems, also required by regulations, are only feasible for installation in overflowing garage doors and sectional garage doors, in addition to pre-weight or counter-weight doors.

REPAIR TILTING GARAGE DOOR.

The most common faults, both overflowing and overflowing garage doors are usually the spring break or the slackening thereof.

Occasionally we can find that the arms or axes suffer the breakage of any of its joints, due to the passage of time and overwork.

Sectional Garage Door.

Sectional garage doors are very fashionable, being very practical, hermetic, insulating, with moderate prices and modern aesthetics. Comply with the regulations, provided they are equipped with fall arrest systems and installed correctly.

Available in various finishes, fluted white or smooth, lacquered, with panels or imitation wood.

They are a relatively inexpensive option ( price garage door sectional white corrugated finish, measures 3×2.5m from $ 582 plus VAT  (no installation, pedestrian door or motor).

I have recommended for private garages, community garages for medium and intensive traffic and access to plots. The possibility of the inscribed pedestrian door with an opening to the outside. They are an excellent option from my point of view and my own experience.

There are two models of motors for sectional garage doors, with installation in the roof with a chain track (there are also with a belt) and laterals with a pinion for a direct attack on the axle. The choice of one model or another will depend on the conditions that we find on site and whether it is for sporadic, medium or intensive use.

They are doors that work compensated by springs installed on their upper shaft, provided with two side pulleys, where they wind the steel cables, which are fixed to the lowest part of the sectional garage door, facilitating the climb. When we make the opening, the wire is wound on the pulleys thanks to the tension of the springs, and when it is lowered, it is unrolled by tensioning them again.

This means that in the case of not being automatic, that is to say, that they work manually, it facilitates the ascent, by not having to carry the full weight of the sectional door.

Even when we open at half height do not fall suddenly due to gravity (as long as the springs are properly tensioned and the steel cables are not damaged, in this case, the anti-fall system should intervene, for safety).

We also have sliding sectional garage doors, which instead of once open to collect on the roof, its way of working is like that of a sliding door to use, with the peculiarity that we can save angles (see image below).

Thus, in the case of finding barriers or obstacles in the roof of the garage, such as pipes or disguise will not prevent or hinder the installation of a sectional garage door.

REPAIR SECTIONAL GARAGE DOOR.

In this case, the one to fix the sectional garage doors happens something similar to the swinging garage doors. Damaged springs, shafts or bearings for any of the reasons already mentioned.

We can also find that the steel cable that performs the work of balancing the sectional garage door has been broken, forcing its replacement. In the garage doors do not overflow, the same thing happens, but in the non-overflowing, this case is not given.
