A high-lift garage door optimizes your space by extending the door's track. This design allows the door to move along the wall and ascend higher before following the horizontal curve. Consequently, it maximizes the vertical space in your garage, providing a significant boost of 12 to 15 inches in headroom. This is achieved by positioning the garage door track closer to the ceiling.
The introduction of a high-lift garage door transforms the trajectory of the door's movement along the track. It essentially leads to the door ascending further before retracing its path. This shift in movement pattern places unique stress on the various components. As a result, specific parts must be adapted to accommodate this modified mechanism.
