Tilt Garage Doors
A Tilt garage door is the perfect solution for Queenslander style homes, as these homes built on stilts tend to have garages or carports with limited headroom. Constructed of a single frame, which swings out then up so the door partially extends beyond the garage when open, the Tilt garage door sits flush with the entryway when closed, ensuring a neat and tidy appearance.
Tilt garage doors are suitable for single and double garages and can be operated manually with a simple swing action, or automatic garage door installation.
A typical Tilt garage door is made of steel sheeting, in a K Panel profile and is available in 22 standard Colorbond colour swatches. However, you also have the option of fully customising the one piece insert, to match the architectural aesthetic of your property.
Our Tilt garage doors are built to last with zinc plated fittings which are resistant to corrosion, in addition to a strengthened bearing design for maximum durability. The springs are developed for optimum performance, with a restraint which ensures movement is contained, so the spring can’t separate from the fitting. A robust anti-sway bracket has been incorporated into the design to limit the degree of lateral movement.
Jamb Versus Track Fittings
Tilt garage doors can be installed using either a jamb type fitting or track type hardware. The jamb style fitting causes the door to project outside the garage when open. This essentially forms a shade canopy which is great when unloading the shopping from the car boot. Plus, the ceiling can still be practically used for overhead storage or internal clothes lines. Jamb fittings can fit into as little as 25 mm of headroom above the doorway.
Alternatively, track type fixtures cause the door to retract within the garage, when open. This option is recommended for heavier doors, like those with timber cladding. Track fittings require 50 mm of headroom above the doorway and they’re sealed along the door jambs to reduce dust and insects.
Tilt Garage Door Warranty
The Tilt doors installed by Brisbane & Bayside Garage Doors come with a 12 month warranty on the door and parts. Warranties are subject to regular garage door maintenance by a qualified technician at least every 12 months. This warranty excludes salt corrosion or damage due to environmental conditions.
