The Most Versatile Garage Door Type

Sectional garage doors combine the widest variety of benefits. Think about sectionals in the first place when considering which door type to choose.

Space-saving design means sectional garage doors open vertically. Door panels do not protrude through the opening whilst in operation. Hence space saving feature means that space close to the garage door can be functional and utilized. Most of all it is important in situations with short driveways and garages.

Aluminium Frame

Traditionally sectional garage doors were designed for installation behind reveal. Unfortunately, the wall behind the reveal is a favourite place for plumbers and electricians. They like to install pipes, cables, and gas meters there.

The garage door fitters are facing the problem when trying to install a sectional garage door on such a wall.

In new-built homes that space mostly is left free of pipes. But the older houses with garages are full of wiring and piping. So, it is the only solution to install a garage door in between the opening, rather than moving all that stuff to another place.

A frame is required to install a sectional garage door in between. The most popular option is a timber frame, which requires additional decoration work after installation. Some manufacturers offer additional brackets for fitting in between the opening. In this case, fitters use additionally provided tin profiles to hide all fixings and keep the outside view neat.

Both options are vulnerable to dampness and polluted air. You have to care about constant maintenance to keep away rot or rust.

Therefore, Ryterna offers an aluminium frame for in-between installations. Anodised and powder-coated aluminium frame is maintenance-free and is affected neither by water nor polluted air.

The robust and good-looking aluminium frame is easy to install. As a standard, an aluminium frame is painted door colour but the customer can choose differently.

Springs & Tracks

Ryterna sectional garage doors work with individually balanced counterbalance springs. Springs ensure the door operates with ease no matter whether automated or used manually. We offer two types of springs: tension (R40 models) and torsion (TL models).

Tension springs we place along horizontal tracks. There are three options for tension springs. SM – aside, TM – on top, UM – under the horizontal track. Furthermore, we can manufacture sectional garage doors with different tension spring locations on each side of the door. It is very important in cases with short side-rooms or side-sloping roof.

Torsion springs are on the shaft between horizontal tracks. In addition, we can place them at the front or at the rear of horizontal tracks depending on the situation.

Also, we can offer several track types to match your garage situation. For garage doors under the sloping roof, we offer tracks raising at an angle to follow the roofline. For complicated situations, customers can order individually made tracks. Zinc-coated hardware, rollers with high-quality bearings, and straightforward design ensure smooth and reliable performance.
