Apartment Basement Parking
Security today is paramount but unfortunately many older apartment buildings do not have the security they need, as they don’t have the overhead room needed to fit a standard garage roller or tilt door and therefore are left open to all.
Newly built buildings are also finding themselves in the same predicament as they are being built on smaller land areas and are left with limited space for garage security.

Yes, as the motors and bi-fold mechanisms are on the back of the gate itself and folding back to the sides, it doesn’t need any overhead room. Being trackless, it is very quiet and smooth.
Am I limited with design choice?
All gates are custom made to your design choice and colour. There are no limits, as the motors and hardware on the back/inside of the gate.
