Benefits of Facade Garage Doors, tilt & folding
The decorative cladding industry has introduced many new, innovative finishes for buildings. People love the latest timbers or composite timbers on their homes, including their garage doors, either as boards, battens or slats. For a natural look, there is imitation stone cladding. Other options include fibre cement, aluminium, metal, imitation brick and ceramic, to name just a few.
Smartech’s new Facade Garage Door frame can carry cladding weights up to an unprecedented 400 kg on top of the door’s weight. As a result, there is now a garage door that can carry the heaviest cladding weight in the market that will satisfy your unique requirements.
Capable of taking weights up to an unprecedented 400kg so that you can even use hardwood as a cladding material!
Note: Smartech does not supply or install the façade garage door cladding. The builder or project manager must take responsibility for the supply and installation of the cladding on site.
COLOUR OF YOUR CHOICE
The Smartech Facade Garage Door is supplied in a quality assured polyester powder coat finish. The frame comes in Mannex Black powder coat finish as standard, designed to hide surface defects cleverly and to provide an attractive, tactile surface. Other colours or mill finish are available upon request. However, for non-standard powder coat colours, additional charges will apply.
MOTORISED OR MANUAL
The motor is positioned at the top of the tracks to keep the garage looking clean, while brush seals completely hide the durable chain drive system.
MADE TO ORDER
Smartech’s Facade Garage Doors will be designed and fabricated to suit your order. To order your Facade Garage Door today, please tell us what the opening height and width is, which Dulux powder coat colour you prefer, which of our nominated type of cladding (including cladding weight per square meter) to use, and whether you want the door to tilt up or fold up.
Customized Garage Doors
Note: Smartech does not supply or install the cladding. The builder or project manager must take responsibility for the supply and installation of the cladding on site.
Smartech Facade Garage Door requires side room and headroom internally to accommodate the counterweight system, pulley head, and motor if included. Refer to the product technical details on the opposite page.
Our counterweight covers are either made from aluminium or Colorbond. They have been designed to hide all the moving parts, cover up the counterweights and, most importantly, protect the end-user from harm. The covers wrap around the tracks, weights and all moving parts to finish flush with the interior wall, providing the architectural finish.
Covers are designed to enclose the façade garage door’s counterweights out of harm’s way and provide a tidy aesthetic finish. Covers will wrap around, extending from the track and returning to the wall.
PROPRIETARY ALUMINIUM EXTRUSIONS
The exclusive range of Smartech aluminium extrusions, extruded from structural grade aluminium, is used in framing and sealing, providing strength and durability to the façade garage door.
As an optional extra, the garage door can feature strip lighting built into its frame transoms. Illuminating when the garage door is open, strip lighting provides a bright and inviting entrance for the vehicle and its passengers.
As you can see in the photos, a “Flush Finish” design means the surface of your garage door and the building’s external wall are flush or level. We have designed the door to finish flush using our proprietary flush finish door jambs, which are L shaped and extruded from structural grade alloy. Therefore, the Facade Garage Door has been uniquely designed from concept to the finished product to be easily incorporated into your project’s facade (or fascia) for that beautiful seamless look.

However, the highlight of this garage door is that it can be used with one unbroken panel of façade and is possible due to the exclusive Smartech flush finish jambs virtually hidden within the external wall or façade.
This makes it ideal for larger openings where decorative claddings, beautiful timbers or the latest aesthetically pleasing finishes are specified. Learn More…
