Why choose a sectional garage door?

If you’re short of space on your drive, the sectional garage door may be the best option for you in terms of a brand-new garage door. A sectional garage door opens and closes vertically, making them the perfect match for those who have multiple cars and need room on the drive.

Not only are they space saving, but they are also energy efficient, extremely secure and are available in a wide range of styles. We explore these points further, below.

Spoilt for choice

Here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd, a large percentage of our garage doors are supplied by Hormann. Now, Hormann’s sectional garage doors are available in 16 factory colours as well as 200 RAL colours, allowing you to choose the perfect look for your home.

The sectional garage doors we supply here are not only available in a range of colours, but finishes also. Your sectional garage door could be a timber garage door, one with a wooden finish or simply just a traditional garage door.

Energy efficiency

Thermal insulation is built in to a sectional garage door, with a U-Value which equals 1.35 W/(m2K) – a number which can be compared with a 55cm brick wall. This makes a sectional garage door a great investment, helping keep your garage warm in the colder months, and therefore saving you money on gas bills.


Uninvited guests don’t stand a chance of getting in to your home if you have a sectional garage door, especially compared to their up and over counterparts. You’re especially safe and sound in your home with a Hormann garage door, as its anti-lifting kit engages automatically when the door is closed.
