On the market there are many solutions adjusting sectional door to the specific installation requirements. Among most common residential garage door there are 3 types of track options.

  • single track system - very good solution if there is enough headroom* in the garage - allow for use of the full passage, makes door operating at the more convenient track angle (door work smoother), requires less steel.

*headroom is a space between top of the opening of the garage and the ceiling - critical space for proper sectional garage door installation

 

  • double track system (also called low-headroom tracks) - most common in Europe - where garages are usually lower than other house part. Requires usually much less headroom space - top rollers go in top track and rest of rollers in the bottom track

 

  • rear spring mount system - usually used in renovation - headroom space is minimum (each cm of the headroom is critical) or if there is difficult to install springs above doors. Double track system with all spring installation components moved on the back of the track. It is imortant to check if opeartor power head is behind springs (may interupt of move of the operator trolley)

If it is impossible to install standard rail operator (due to pipes or other obstacles on the ceiling) - it is possible to install side operator installed on counterbalance system. This kind of opeartor doesn't need rail installation.
