Commercial garage doors come in all shapes and sizes. The right decision for your commercial premises (factory, building, carpark or something else) depends on a multitude of factors. Let’s take a look at some of the choices:

Firstly, you can decide if you want a roller door or a sectional garage door. Roller doors are thinner, lighter, need less space than a sectional garage door, and are a little more expensive. Sectional garage doors can be a good option if you have enough (a lot!) of space in the install zone. The sectional doors can allow in a lot of light, are quite quiet to operate, and are very secure in terms of protection from inclement weather or crime. Deciding which you need can be dependent of a number of other factors as well – it’s best to have a chat to your supplier/installer to ensure you’re choosing the type of commercial door that’s right for you and your business.


Regardless of which door you choose, please ensure you’re purchasing a quality product with a proper warranty – something that will last a long time, is easy to use, has top-of-the-line design, and is strong. We recommend the Grifco range of industrial door motors to pair with your new door!

Merlin to offer smart home garage door openers

Door Doctors preferred supplier Merlin have announced a new range of garage door openers called Merlin MyQ, designed for ‘smart homes’ – so you’re able to control the doors from any internet-enabled device (e.g. smartphone, laptop, tablet).

This represents one less item on the keyring, one less battery to replace, and increased security for the garage doors (the Merlin MyQ app platform uses strong encryption technology and offers choices based on security / convenience).  It can also be configured to open (or simply just opened and closed remotely) for tradesmen or delivery drivers, so you don’t need to be at home when they come by.

Merlin Commander MyQGrant Emanuel, the head of marketing at Chamberlain Australia (Merlin owner) has been quoted as follows: “Automating your garage door with the PowerLift MyQ not only makes getting in and out of your home much easier, it also solves those panic moments when you rush out of the house to get to work and then question whether you left the garage door open or not.”

The app will notify homeowners any time the garage door is opened or closed, which will lead to better security and increased peace of mind for those who have valuables in their garage or it connects to the rest of the house.

The PowerLift MyQ will include obstruction detection safety beams and premium reversal technology which will protect children, pets, the car, or anything else that may get in the way of the door. It can be attached to single or double sectional doors up to 16m² and, like the rest of the Merlin product range, is protected by a seven-year warranty and Merlin’s excellent after sales support service.
