Residential Timber Sectional panels are made of standard grade
Western Red Cedar (Note: the DR-6 timber sectional is made
of solid Western Red Cedar frame with ply infill). Other types
of timber and grades of timber may be available, depending
on size and availablity, consult your Airport Doors representative
for further information.
Panel thickness may vary from
13mm to 40mm thick depending on panel design. Panels consist
of tongue and groove joints with the bottom panel fitted with
a PVC insert bottom seal .
Timber Sectional Doors shall be sealed with Fully Sealed Sikkens
(Dark Oak) as standard. When specified doors can be finished
using Part Sealed Sikkens (Dark Oak), CD50 oil (in Clear or
Cedartone), or timber can be left raw (to enable customer
to apply their own finish). Consult your Airport Doors representative
for further information. Timbers used are of a high quality
however we cannot guarantee the consistency of colours and
patterns due to the natural colour variations in Cedar timber.
To ensure long
lasting timber protection, re-coat your door at least every
1-4 years depending on the type of finish and weather or environmental
conditions. Inspect your door regularly and re-apply finish
at the first signs of timber ageing.
Acrylic, glass or leadlight window designs can be very appealing
and are also practical, allowing natural light to filter into
the garage or carport. Consult
your Airport Doors representative for further information.
Manually operated doors shall be fitted with spring loaded
shootbolts on the inside, unless otherwise specified.
Sectional Overhead Doors operate by torsion springs and cables
allowing the hinged panels to travel smoothly within the guides.
The door travels behind the opening and rests horizontally
overhead in the open position as standard. Various installations
are available depending on application (limitations may apply).
