Style & Colour
Start with the basics: do you want a roller door or a sectional door? Both styles have their place and purpose, and we’ll help you figure out what’s best for you. After that comes the fun bit: finding your style. Should your door blend in with your home, or make a statement? Classic woodgrain, or contemporary Colourbond? As part of the DuluxGroup, we can easily sort you out with a stunning custom powder coat.

Consider where you garage is in relation to your home’s bedrooms. If there are rooms directly above or beside it, then noise becomes a factor. Our openers and door tracks are meticulously designed to open smoothly and keep noise to a comfortable minimum. We also have the perfect garage insulation solutions to block out any street noise, which is great if you happen to live in a noisy neighbourhood.

Temperature & The Elements
If dust, embers and extreme temperatures are a concern for you, we have the perfect solutions to keep your garage sealed and insulated. Or, if you have a door connecting your garage to your home, insulating your garage will help you keep your home’s internal temperature stable. Remember, a B&D garage door can do a lot more than just open and close. We’ll help you figure out exactly what kinds of features you’ll need.

For kids and pets, or even just your car, you’ll need an automatic door you can trust to open & close when it's meant to. Our infrared wireless safety beams do the trick. If the infra-red beam is interrupted while the garage door is closing, it immediately sends the door back up.

Your home and garage hold all kinds of irreplaceable valuables, that’s why it’s important to pick the right security features for you. Many garage doors don’t lock themselves. Ours do; the B&D Auto-Lock will secure your door and your valuables inside. But what if you head out, and you can’t remember if you closed your garage at all? No problem: not only can you close it with our smartphone app, you can even check if anyone’s accessed it while you’re away.
