NEW ZEALAND CLASSIC CAR THE ULTIMATE GARAGE FIT-OUT GARAGE DOORS
On the surface, garage doors might sound like a non-event when it comes to crafting the ultimate garage. But remember, the garage door is the line of defence that is most frequently under threat when it comes to potential burglars. So, along with being visually appealing, they must be strong enough to keep your pride and joy secure.
First opening its doors in 1962 — pun not intended — Garador are the largest garage door and opener distributor network in New Zealand. They stock rolling, tilting, and sectional garage doors, as well as the interesting new ‘flexador’, as marketing manager Matt Tegg explains: “It’s a hybrid between the roller door and the sectional door. This was an idea developed by B&D Doors in Australia, where the door rolls upwards and back along the roof, using a roller door curtain so that it takes up minimal headroom.”

But Garador product is more than just a pretty face. Their non-wooden doors are put together with robust, strong New Zealand steel, sourced from Coloursteel — ensuring that those wanting to try and break in with force will have a torrid time.
This focus on security also extends to the garage door openers, as Matt explains: “Our openers use a 128-bit encryption, a characteristic common in many secure banks around the world, so there’s no real chance of the opener’s code being copied. They’re also very reliable in terms of the service indicator they all come with as standard, which reminds people of when they need to be serviced.”
Sectional garage doors are the most popular among the motoring-inclined. This makes sense when you factor in how they’re produced specifically to overlap with the door opening, to prevent any draft coming through, and they can be insulated to reduce heattransfer through the door to the goodies within. “If you’re insulating everything else in the garage you may as well do the door, too,” says Matt.
“We have a network of 35 Garador distributors, who sell our products throughout the country in every major city,” Matt adds, “And there will always be someone local to help with installation and after-sales service.”
