All of our guide rail systems and garage doors are constructed in such a way that the door rolls up and down vertically. The door does not protrude forward, in contrast to a solid tilting door. As a result, you can always use the space in front of and behind the garage door optimally. For the G200, we require a top clearance of 200 mm above the door opening. All of our guide rail systems use galvanised torsion springs, which for the G200 are located directly above the door.
Is the clearance limited for the installation of your new garage door? This does not need to be a problem. The G100 guide rail system only requires a top clearance of 100 mm, above the door opening. The torsion springs of the G100 are located at the end of the horizontal rails. Similar to the G200 and the R60, the guide rail system has a very stable design, enabling us to guarantee a long life.
The R60 guide rail system is pre-eminently suitable for replacing an old uninsulated tilting garage door. The system is designed in such a way that no structural changes are required to install the new garage door. The R60 only requires 60 mm of top clearance. The R60 is only supplied complete with a electric operator.
Here is an overview of the required top clearance. This information allows you to rapidly see which of the three guide rail systems fits in your garage. For a top clearance of 200 mm or more, we always recommend the G200 guide rail system. We always need 85 mm of free room to both sides.
