Understanding Garage Door Tracks
For a garage door to function correctly when opening and closing, it must have a support system in place for it to do so. That’s the role tracks play. They allow garage doors to move smoothly and unobstructed when in operation.
Depending on the type of garage door one might have, the tracks can be installed overhead, on the floor, and or along the sides of the garage door. The tracks are typically made of steel or aluminum and include “grooves” that measure 1″ to 3″ in width. Rollers are used inside the tracks to allow garage doors to lift (open) and close.
Types of Garage Door Tracks
Types of tracks for garage doors can be classified in several ways. One way is based on the width of the tracks, which can range from 1″ to 3″ with 2″ tracks commonly used for homes and commercial businesses. They can also be classified based on the material used to manufacture them. Aluminum and steel are the most commonly used materials.
Most often tracks are classified based on the way they function. Here are a few types based on how they operate:
· Low headroom/rear munt lift
· High lift
· Vertical lift
· Follow roof pitch lift
· 25 degrees tracks – helps avoid obstacles
