Which Garage Door Type is Best for Security?

At Automated Garage Doors, we understand the importance of keeping your home and belongings safe. When it comes to garage doors, a sectional garage door is the clear winner in terms of security. The Garador Sectional doors we supply and install are tested and certified in accordance with the high safety requirements of European standard 13241-1.

Sectional garage doors are composed of insulated panels that hinge together to create a solid barrier. This design makes them much more difficult to pry open compared to older style doors.

But who might especially benefit from a sectional garage door's security features?

  • Homes with attached garages. An attached garage provides a direct point of entry into your house. A secure garage door becomes an important line of defence.
  • Those who store valuables in the garage. If you keep tools, bikes, or other equipment in your garage, a sturdy sectional door deters would-be thieves.

Security Features of Sectional Garage Doors:

  • Durable materials. Sectional doors are typically constructed from steel or insulated composite materials, offering superior strength compared to traditional wooden doors.
  • Pinch-resistant design. The interlocking panels eliminate gaps and pinch points, making them difficult to tamper with.
  • Automatic locking mechanisms. Many modern sectional doors come with automatic locking features that engage as soon as the door closes.

Then there's our Warm Protection roller door range that feature an automatic locking system - ensuring your door is secure against would-be intruders. They can also be fitted with an LED diagnostic display, internal buttons, courtesy light and 105 db alarm system.
