Roll-A-Door (Roller Door) – As the name suggests it is B&D’s roller door that they invented back in 1956. These are a type of door made from sheets of colourbond steel that are pressed to form corrugations so that they can be rolled up on themselves.
Panelift Door (Sectional Door) – This type of door is actually a sectional overhead garage door, Panelift is the trademark of B&D, although this name is used interchangeably in the industry for other manufacturers sectional doors. This door is made up of panels (sections) that follow a track up and overhead.
Tilt or Tilting Door – This is a single piece garage door that lifts out of the opening and up towards the ceiling. Although these are quite common still, B&D only supplies the parts and does not manufacture this type of door. We do not supply or service this type of door.
