What are up & over garage doors?

A popular type of garage door, up and over garage doors are usually made from a single panel that lifts and then tilts to lay flat above the head. This is where the ‘up and over’ name comes from and they are available in a number of styles and colours.

There are two types of up and over garage doors:




This is a cost-effective garage door and is attached to a frame through two rolling wheels in each side. As the door opens, the wheels remain in the roller tracks as they move higher with the door to create a canopy cover.




This type of door uses a retractable gear for added lifting power. The door is attached to the garage via spring-loaded side arms and the gear helps with opening heavy timber door panels.

At Bramley, we offer a wide range of up and over garage doors and specialise in carrying out any repairs. Get in touch via the contact form for more information.
