Tilt garage doors (also known as a panel lift garage door) are made from a one piece tilting panel. The panel has pivoting arms at both sides of the garage door opening. When engaged, the door then moves out and up from a vertical position into a horizontal position.They’re easy to use and can be very convenient depending on your circumstances ( these types of doors require space in front of and above the door to open.)
If your garage has extremely limited head height at the opening (for example less than 20cm), a tilt door can be a good option.
For those with taller cars (or ones with roof racks) – especially in older low-ceiling garages, a tilt door is a very good option to maximise space and not worry about causing any damage to your car or your door.
