Tilt doors are a one-piece unit perfect for older homes in Melbourne that don’t have enough space at the sides for a roller door or a sectional door.

Tilt Garage Doors Melbourne Frequently Asked Questions 

Tilt doors’ movement involves swinging outwards and upwards with the use of a hinged cradle that involves pivoting arms, which are typically counterbalanced by springs.

Because tilt doors generally have fewer parts, their maintenance and repair can be less frequently required. They do require monitoring for factors such as corrosion and physical damage, as do most garage doors. The springs should be tended to reduce the risk of injury in the case of deformities. We recommend that your tilt door be serviced and inspected every 12-18 months to maintain optimum performance, product longevity and safe operation.

As tilt doors do not roll up or separate and consist of a rigid panel, they must swing forward as they move upward. This means there does need to be a certain amount of room in front of the entry point.
