Garage Door, Which one is right for me?

So the time to replace your old garage door has finally come!

But how do you decide on a new door with such a vast array of operations, types and materials to choose from; which is right for you?


HAG is here to help with a quick guide to choosing garage doors. The key factors of the selection process are:

  1. Budget
  2. Operation
  3. Insulation
  4. Headroom requirement
  5. Style

1st Budget

If you are on a tight budget and need a cost-effective garage door, consider the traditional up and over door, however, a HAG Armourguard Roller Garage Door is also cost effective and will offer higher security due to its steel construction.

2nd Operation

All HAG garage doors can be manual or electric operation, obviously, a manual system is cheaper as there is no requirement for a motor.  However, for an additional cost, an electric operation garage door can be fitted with remote controls and safety devices for ease of use.

3rd Insulation

For the best insulation properties see the Seceuroglide rolling system as the lath is double skinned and foam filled to provide the best thermal and acoustic values.

4th Head Room

If your garage has limited space above the opening for door to retract into, you can consider a Seceuro Section Door as when in the open position it only needs 300mm of room.

5th Style

There are a wide selection of many colours and patterns available to choose from, the best advice is to simply select a garage door that compliments the look and style of your home.
