This Demonstration models two up-and-over garage door mechanisms. The retractable door type (red) opens with minimal lost space inside the garage, but protrudes about one-third outside the door frame. The canopy door (blue) takes more space inside when opening but opens flush with the outside wall.[more]
Move the counterweight on the right up and down to compare the two different mechanisms.[less]
