Why would you buy a Carteck sectional garage door?
Carteck doors are manufactured by Teckentrup in Germany and their range of sectional garage doors are exceptionally high quality. All the doors are 40mm thick and double skinned steel with a foam core for excellent insulation and panel strength. The operating mechanism differs from other sectional doors in that the lifting springs are located at high level in steel containers above the horizontal lifting tracks and require no fixing at the front to the lintel, making this door ideal for garages with limited headroom internally or most flat roof garages. The standard headroom requirement is only 115mm for the majority of door sizes and only 140mm on the largest standard domestic door sizes making the Carteck ideal for all garages with limited headroom internally.
The other benefit of a Carteck is the larger range of standard heights available from stock - 15 to be exact!! No reason for large infills above the top door panel and comprimises on the door height when there are this many sizes to choose from as well as purpose made sizes if required.
Carteck sectional garage doors feature security as standard with multilatch two point locking and optional bolts on all manually operated doors. Patented, galvanised, wear resistant hinges make the interlocking door sections extra secure, with quadruple folded steel at all hinge fixing points for solid attachment of the hinges to the panel sections.
Each sectional door panel section is incredibly strong by design with double skinned high strength galvanised steel enclosing a rigid layer of environmentally friendly insulating foam in 40mm thick panels.
The garage door when closed is held within the frame and tracks at 10 separate points to ensure a solid, tight fit with no obvious gaps for the opportunist thief to attempt to jemmy. With automatic doors it is usual not to have any handle making less points again to attempt to force.
A sectional garage door operates vertically and does not go through the opening at any point during operation. Available up to nearly 6 metres wide at almost any size and 3 metres high it has the versatility for many openings where traditional up and over doors just won’t work – even if the opening is arched.
Rubber sealing is standard to the sides and head of the steel frame with a large rubber compression seal affixed to the bottom door panel to prevent leaves, dust, rain and the like from entering your garage.
The Carteck sectional doors are available online in options of two attractive designs – Georgian panelled and Horizontal ribbed - both options available in the 40mm panel thickness as standard. Different options are available in the standard ribbed door panel designs - Centre Ribbed, Standard Ribbed and Solid Ribbed, all in one of the external finished of woodgrain, smooth (plain), stucco or micrograin.

A woodgrain textured steel finish to each door panel is the standard, pressed into the steel panels before final powdercoat finishing.
Carteck sectional doors are available in a choice of three finishes – polyester powder coated, high grade laminate woodgrain or polymer paint finish, all giving a beautiful low maintenance, durable exterior.
Carteck sectional garage doors are built to last with a 5 year warranty on all parts and a further ten year warranty is given on the exterior finish, delamination, floor and side seals and material and manufacturing faults on all frame parts.

Benefits of Carteck Garage Sectional Door at a glance:
The Carteck sectional door is designed for absolute ease of operation with a unique multiple spring tension system ensuring a very smooth and easy operation at any of the available sizes, large or small. The springs are safely housed in a steel box at high level away from little fingers and other potental hazards
The Carteck door also incorporates a host of innovative and protective safety features to make it one of the safest you can buy.
Double cables on each side and multiple springing support the door in the unlikely event of spring or cable failure, meaning the door will not drop and can still be opened or closed.
Interior and exterior finger protection also feature on this door, preventing dangerous narrow openings between panel sections during operation. In addition hand protection at the side of the guide rails prevent accidents between the frame and the guide rail.
The Carteck is available in many different finishes to the front face exterior. The standard finish is polyester powdercoat white with options available to have any RAL colour powdercoat finish for an additional charge.
To truly match existing Upvc doors and windows in different finishes there are now 4 woodgrain laminate finishes available- Golden Oak and Rosewood are 2 of them with Winchester and Dark Oak also available. These finishes do not have a woodgrain texture in the steel finish like the powdercoated doors but have a woodgrain design in the pattern on the laminate.

3 laminate woodgrain finishes are available at extra cost and delivery time:
Special satin metallic effect Trend colours:
Grey with micaceous
iron ore particles.
Sepia brown with micaceous
iron ore particles.
(Note: TT9011 is priced as Wood Design and therefore does not qualify as a TREND colour promotion door)
If the colour you require is not available as a Trend colour, we are able to coat our standard panels to a RAL or BS colour. For doors coloured in this way, doors are made and cut to size from white panels and then sprayed to the required colour.
The spraying process is of a very high standard but will not be as uniform as the pre-coated steel of Trend coloured doors. Any variations in sheen or density will, however, be minor and may only be visible at very close proximity or at oblique angles in strongy directional light. Effects of this nature should not be discernible from a distance of 3 metres - a standard set by the DHF (Door & Hardware Federation).
The surface finish is low gloss and it is customary to only colour the outer surface of the door, however the inner face can be coated to match as an optional extra.
Remote Control Operation
Any of the Carteck door options can be fitted with various remote control operators either when you install the door or at a later stage, although Garage Doors Online recommend using Carteck's own range of operators as well as any of the Hormann operators featured in this site - a range also giving excellent options for automation and control options.
It goes without saying that any of the remote control operators have all the very latest in safety features as standard and will always reverse in either direction if obstructed. Extra safety items can also be added if the door is near a busy public area, etc.
