  3. Easy to maintain

    Steel Up and Over doors from Garador are not only great value, but also easy to maintain. Their sturdy paint finish and smooth spot welded surface finish, not only look great, but are also easy to keep clean and only need a light wash with detergent and water. 

  4. Security

    Based on feedback from our customer base, we have unsurprisingly found that security is high on the list of demands from homeowners. Which is why Garador’s Up and Over doors come with secure 2-point locking to prevent unauthorised entry, as well as secure locking and back bracing for extra rigidity on the door panel itself.

  5. Safety

    All Garador Up and Over doors with canopy gear are fitted with a built-in anti-drop device to prevent the door from crashing down in the event of a spring or cable failure. Doors with retractable gear feature a secure parking position to prevent uncontrolled closing. 

  6. A size that fits

    With thousands of standard and purpose-made sizes, homeowners can order a Garador Up and Over door that perfectly fits their opening. Garador’s Up and Over doors can be supplied with a steel frame, which is a faster and more accurate way to fit the garage door and avoids the need for a timber frame which can rot over time.
