Sectional Doors Vs Roller Shutters For Garages: How To Pick The Best One?

Sectional Doors Vs Roller Shutters For Garages Maximum Advantage

How To Pick The Best One?

Roller shutter door at shopTrendy garage doors are in, and the old, rusty double garage doors are out. The latest trend in Singapore is to fit garages with sectional doors or roller shutters. The competition and demand lie only between these two types of garages, and other old door models are out of the picture.
Users are often drawing comparisons between both doors, although they are so similar in many aspects:

  • Both open and close vertically; thus, they do not take up more horizontal space.
  • Both doors need a bit of vertical space. The roller shutter needs more headroom to accommodate the roll, and the sectional doors need a bit of space on the garage ceiling to fit the horizontal trucks.
  • Both doors are ideal for any size garage and can be customised for any shape of the garage opening.

To find an answer to which door is the better one, we shall analyse each feature to arrive at an acceptable conclusion.

Sectional Vs Roller Shutter Garage Doors

The Similarities And Differences

Roller Garage Doors

Materials

As wood and PVC lack flexibility, durability, and rigidity, they are not ideal for roller shutters. But aluminium and steel are highly preferred for their strength, robustness, and versatility. Aluminium is available as foam-filled slats, and double-skinned slats joined together to form one continuous steel roller door that rolls up or down without getting stuck.

Mechanism

Roller shutters can be manually or electrically operated. The door operates with a motor that is fitted inside or outside the roller barrel for the latter. The motor moves the roller barrel up and down with the help of a gear cog or chain mechanism.

Security Features

There are endless choices of colours and designs for sectional doors—multi-textured finishes like stucco effect, micro grained ribbed, wood-grain texture, and smooth texture. The doors are also available in many trendy finishes and a huge array of designs.

Colours, Designs And Finishes

The colours available for roller shutters are limited, but buyers can choose from a range of laminate finishes such as mahogany, rosewood, oak, and other wood-like finishes. But when it comes to choice in design, there are hardly any choices because the horizontal lines are the only design.

Door Size

The roller shutters are mostly limited to certain width and height dimensions. It is almost impossible to find a single shutter of large sizes that can be manually operated.

Sectional Garage Doors

Materials

Most sectional doors are made from single or double-skinned galvanised steel panels of varying sizes and depth. The panels are also available in timber, aluminium, and fibreglass. Steel is a prime choice because it is more economical, but all other materials are equally durable and lend an appealing quality to the door.

Mechanism

The function is mostly manual and aided by a torsion or tension spring mechanism, which allows the panels to glide smoothly through the horizontal rail tracks fitted on the ceiling. There are one or more springs on either side, above, front, or back.

Security Features

The very design of the sectional doors makes them far more secure, especially if they are fitted with a cylinder locking system and rotary latches fitted to the side tracks. A double-skinned steel sectional door fitted with a reliable electric operator would be more reliable than a simple sectional door secured with padlocks.
