Things to know before choosing a garage door

A good garage door will last decades, so it makes sense to spend time making the best choice. Mike van Arkel from the leading garage door and automation supplier, SBS, advised a few factors to consider. “Hydro garage doors and Digi automation have been synonymous with quality since 1983. The entire range is available through SBS branches nationwide and supported by comprehensive after-sales service and spares.”

Here are Mike’s top considerations:

Check for added insulation

Choosing a well-insulated garage door will improve the energy efficiency of the entire home. Hydro’s sectional steel garage doors can come with a foam-filled backing that keeps the space cool in the summer and warm in the winter, increases security due to the double-skin strength of the door and helps absorb vibration – resulting in quieter operation.

Customise with colour

Choosing the right colour enhances curb appeal. Hydro’s steel section garage doors are available in Rustic Bark, Snow White, Thunder Storm (Charcoal), and can be painted to match your specific requirements. The powder-coated finish requires virtually no maintenance and is easy to clean, offering long-lasting and durable good looks.

The difference is in the detail

You need to take note of the quality of the hardware and inner workings of the door, not just its aesthetic appeal. Hydro garage doors are exceptionally secure, with top-end inner workings, double-throw locks and long-life counterbalance springs.
