When it comes to choosing a new garage door for your home, security levels and features should be at the front of your mind.

Up & Over

If you’re looking for a reliable garage door that hasn’t changed its operation in decades, the up and over is the one for you. But if you’re after exceptional security, you will have to invest in the appropriate features, make sure it has a multi-point locking system and a euro cylinder anti-snap lock. These features will guarantee safety for your garage even thieves try and force entry or drill the lock.


Just as long as you don’t choose a very basic variant, the roller garage door could be the most secure garage door around. Automated roller doors are even better as it means there are no weak points that a potential intruder could try to benefit from.


Simply down to the operation, the sectional garage door is naturally secure and similarly to the roller garage door, if automated, someone trying to break in will probably need a bulldozer as there are no obvious points of entry.
