It is a true fact that the quantity and ratio of automobiles in the world is increasing at an enormous pace and in few years a time will come when there will be not enough place even to park the vehicles. For the proper safety and security of automobiles the best and most secure place is the garage in the homes.

Nowadays garages have become the most important part of home during the construction of homes maps and structure on the paper. People emphasized a lot on the construction of garage in their houses. In order to make the garages more secure and safe place garage doors are used. Garage doors should be designed and installed in the garages in such a way that they give maximum protection to the vehicle parked inside the garage and must not be opened by an unauthorized mean easily.

There should be proper security system installed in the garage entry gates in order to make them safe. In addition to this many other important points should be kept in mind while designing the garage doors for the garages in the homes. The size of the garage door will depend upon the type of the vehicle that would be parked inside the garage in future. The size should be such that it is not too much big or small and vehicles can easily pass through it. Another point while selecting garage entry gates for the houses is to check the type of opening mechanism used in it.

There are two major and basic types of garage entry doors based on their opening mechanism. One is single panel doors and other is sectional garage doorways. As clear from the name the single panel doors consist of single panel or monolithic panel. The single panel doors will slide up and open on the overhead rails in such a way that an arc is formed. It means that vehicle which is to be parked in the garage having this door will have to stop few meters in front of the door in order to prevent any damage or contact to the vehicle when the door is opening.

In sectional garage doors there are more than six panels and these garage gates do not form an arc while opening and vehicles do not have to be stopped few distances in front of these door. This is main advantage of sectional car port gates over the single panel doors. Most of the garage doorways open on the basis of spring mechanism but some are operated by the help of electronic system.
