On-Site Measuring Guide Sectional/Tilt Doors
All measurements must be taken from inside the garage/carport looking out - VILO (Viewed Inside Looking Out).
Step One: Measure the width of the opening at its widest point.
This is the distance between the left and right sides of the finished door opening.
Step Two: Measure the height of the opening at its highest point.
This is the distance between the floor and the top of the finished opening.
Step Three: Measure the width of the areas beside the opening, commonly referred to as 'sideroom'. In most instances a minimum of 120mm sideroom is required on each side of the opening for a Sectional/Tilt Door to be fitted.
Step Four: Measure the height of the area between the top of the door opening and the ceiling (or lowest obstruction), commonly referred to as 'headroom'.
The minimum amount of headroom required for an automatically operated door is 390mm. Any site where the headroom measurement is between 390- 250mm will require a Low Headroom Kit (LHIR) to accommodate this reduced space.
Step Five: Measure the distance from the opening to the rear of the garage (or closest obstruction) to determine the available ceiling space. In most instances a minimum of 3400mm is required for a Sectional/Tilt Door to be fitted.
Note: The above information is intended to be used as a guide only. It is recommended that (where possible) a re-measure and site check be performed by an L.A. Bayside Garage Doors & Gates representative.
• Confirm availability of powerpoint on ceiling for automatic door opener
• Note any obstructions (including lights, structural beams, pipework etc)
• Ensure opening frame and all wood jambs are structurally sound and in good condition.
