The type of door on your existing home will impact on how you go about insulating your garage. If you have an old Tilt door you may not have enough room to be able to replace it with an insulated sectional door, but you could fit one of our new Flex-A-Door‘s which at the very least will cut down on the drafts are the bane of a tilting door’s design.

Your options may also be limited to a Flex-A-Door if your existing Roller Door is pushed up into a cavity.

We will be more than happy to come round and provide a FREE no-obligation assessment of your situation.

Having an existing sectional door will give you two options to consider; work with the door you have or upgrade it completely.

In working with your existing door, you could look at adding after-market insulation to the back of it. This will generally give OK results but a word of warning, the additional weight of the insulation will mean your door will most likely require new springs to operate correctly. If your door is relatively new, additions such as insulation will void any warranty coverage that may exist.

New Homes

When designing your new home there is plenty to think about when trying to create an energy efficient one. But that doesn’t mean that you should gloss over your garage door as it is probably one of the largest openings in your home and most prone to heat transfer.

When designing your new home there is plenty to think about when trying to create an energy efficient one. But that doesn’t mean that you should gloss over your garage door as it is probably one of the largest openings in your home and most prone to heat transfer.

We’ve taken our most popular styles of sectional doors and added a sophisticated insulator used the world over.

Silver-grey in colour, this unique product is EPS infused with graphite to further absorb infrared energy and reflect heat providing around 20% better insulating performance than standard EPS. A remarkable product matched to a premium brand.

Why EPS?

Insulation96A large moving door has many stress points and will inevitably flex throughout its operation, it also fluctuates greatly in surface temperature over short time intervals so the insulation must be extremely durable to maintain its thermal & acoustic effectiveness – that’s where Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) outperforms the rest. Proven the world over to stand the test of time in demanding situations, it will not turn brittle or absorb any relevant amount of moisture (even when submerged) and yet it is still recyclable.

The corflute backing that houses our precision-cut insulation is a carbon-grey finish that adds a distinguished look to the internal face of the door. Low maintenance yet replaceable is key to the design. The corflute also acts as a form of thermal break with the small amount of steel on the inside face of the door having a minimal effect on the internal temperature of the garage.

No Need to Worry About Delamination

We have taken our high grade, time tested steel roll-formed panels and added insulation. The net result is a more rigid door, but our panels do not rely on lamination with the precision-cut EPS to create a straight and true door – they are already that way before the insulation is added and have passed our strict quality control checks. Panel integrity will never be an issue with an Insulated Series sectional door from Garador Auckland.

Same Great Styles

We can insulate our current range of roll-formed ribbed & flat sectional doors – these popular styles just got even better.

Same Great Range of Colours

The Insulated Series is available in the same great Pre-Painted Steel colour range as our standard styles. They can also be finished with a durable powdercoat in virtually any colour your external colour-scheme demands (for an additional fee).

Whether you are upgrading your existing door or require a new one, you’ve got to consider our all new Insulated Series.
