Sectional garage doors, commonly referred to as Panel doors, consist of about five separate segments, which are hinged together. These panels span the full width of your garage entrance, enhancing the aesthetic of any modern home, instantly increasing curb appeal!
The Benefits of Panels
When opened, the panels are guided upwards along tracks before rounding a corner to rest horizontally parallel to the garage ceiling. This ensures the door doesn’t swing outwards like a Tilt door, so it is still fully operational when a car parks immediately in front of, or within the garage. As the door is comprised of individual panels, if one section is damaged when reversing out of the garage that single panel may potentially be replaced, as opposed to paying for an entirely new door!
Additionally, the absence of a circular drum in the doorway, like those required for Roller doors; makes a Sectional door the perfect choice for garages with limited headroom, high clearance vehicles, like 4WDs, and short driveways. The Brisbane & Bayside range of sectional doors encompasses the popular B&D Panelift style and the Panelift Icon. The Icon possesses the same characteristics our customers have come to love in the original Panelift, with a keyless Auto-Lock feature.
B&D Panelift Icon (with Auto Lock)
B&D have enhanced the security attributes of the Panelift in the Icon model. The garage is the largest doorway in your entire home, so it plays a vital role in the protection of your assets. Whether an expensive car is your pride and joy, or the garage is used to store valuable collectibles; it’s not worth compromising on security. That’s why B&D developed the Auto-Lock – an indispensable addition to every Icon.
B&D’s smart keyless technology empowers you to lock the Icon door using a regular remote control. Every single time you close the Panelift Icon, with an engaged automatic opener, the Auto-Lock engages in one of two ways. Either it is bolted to a guide that slides above a wheel, which can’t be lifted from the track. Alternatively, the lock can be mounted to the door, with a heavy duty bolt which engages with a bracket mounted to the track. The Auto-Lock more than doubles the force required, at the lock point, to lift the door from its closed position. This prevents thieves from being able to force the door upwards to access your garage. The Auto-Lock even comes with its own 12 month warranty!
Superior Performance & Protection
The Panelift Icon is constructed with corrosion resistant, stainless steel cables; ensuring durability and performance. It offers the possessions in your garage superior protection from the elements with a 360º perimeter Weatherseal; to prevent insects and dust from entering. The Smooth Track and twin wheel system combined result in quieter operation; making the Icon the ultimate ‘do-not-disturb’ garage door. So what are you waiting for?

These can be produced in an array of Colorbond steel colours in either a smooth or woodgrain textured finish. Alternatively you can opt for a high quality Knotwood or hard-wearing Timber Coat finish. If you wish to allow some natural light into your workshop, consider the optional addition of windows. Select one of seven window frame designs consisting of either four or eight window panes.
Panelift Icon Warranty
A 5 year Parts & Labour Warranty on the Panelift Icon garage door gives our customers absolute peace of mind. Order your Panelift Icon in combination with a Controll-A-Door automatic opener to be eligible for the B&D 10 year Total Confidence Warranty.
The primary B&D Panelift remains our most popular sectional door, having raised the standard for strong, safe and reliable garage door operation.
Choose from the Nullarbor, Seville, Statesman or Grange panel designs to reflect the architectural style of your home; from traditional to modern residences. Each panel is made from reinforced Colorbond steel which has been tested to withstand the harsh Australian climate.
The Panelift’s custom designed guides enable the door to run easily and smoothly during operation, making coming and going from the home simple, whether you are in the car, or just need a quick way to step inside. Every Panelift features a Pinchfree finger safe design, both on the inside and the outside of the door. Parents can rest easy knowing that their inquisitive little ones’ fingers won’t get caught between hinges, as a result of this protective feature.
The Panelift comes with a 3 year Parts & Labour Warranty. You can extend this to 10 years, with B&D’s Total Confidence Warranty, when you order the Panelift in conjunction with the Controll-A-Door automatic opener.
