New Zealand Classic Car - - The Ultimate Garage Fit-Out -

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.”
