Garage Door Track for Your Home

By Blog Master on 02 May 2017 In

Understanding the working elements of a complex system, such as your garage door track, can only lead to a better overview of a product when it comes time to repair or replace such items.

Sectional garage doors and electric opener systems are seemingly simple items in their function, but having a working knowledge of specific parts and operations can extend your door/opener lifetime.

Bracket Track: A Traditional Part to a Garage Door

Traditional tracking for residential garage doors is hot-dip 16 ga. galvanized steel.  Depending upon headroom availabililty, distance between the top of a closed garage door and the lowest point of the ceiling, different ‘radius’ track systems are available.  The more standard being a 12” radius track. 


When headroom availability is limited, less than 12”, a low headroom track provides a second horizontal piece of track is used. 


For side room entry door access to the garage in the area of the track placement, a larger 32” radius track could be utilized for pedestrian safety clearance.


Specialty tracks are also available.  Follow the roofline track as well as a hi-lift vertical track to allow the homeowner to stack multiple cars in one bay.


Custom powder-coated colors are also available.
