The Most Popular Garage Door of 2021

2021 has been a busy year of installations, and (by far!) the most popular door among our clients has been the B&D Garage Doors Panelift. This sectional door model has always been a popular choice, so we’re not surprised. We installed Panelift and Panelift Icons (a premium model of this popular door) all around the Northern Rivers; from Ballina to Kingscliff, Lismore and Grafton and everywhere in between. This model’s classic design is timeless and comes with so many colours and profile designs to choose from which is why it’s such a favourite.

The B&D Panelift

B&D Garage Door’s Panelift model sets the standard for strong, safe and reliable operation year after year. It’s a top choice for many of our clients because it suits traditional and modern homes beautifully, and with an extensive range of colours and profile design options the door is completely customisable. We’ve transformed many homes and boosted curb-side appeal with the Panelift model.

The B&D Panelift Icon

The Panelift Icon is the standard Panelift model plus all the exciting enhancements. This includes Auto-Lock wireless technology, longer standard warranty, quieter operation and a wider range of colours and profiles to choose from. The Auto-Lock wireless technology is a big draw card for many of our clients because it automatically locks your garage door with a heavy-duty locking bolt, giving you peace-of-mind round the clock.

Whatever model of the Panelift you decide for your home, you can trust it’s one of Australia’s most reliable garage doors and it’s fully customisable so you can design it to suit your home perfectly. 

The Colour Range

The B&D Panelift garage door is made of a series of panels (hence the name). Each panel is made from Colourbond steel, and comes in a wide range of colours to choose from. The most popular colours with our clients are:

  • Dover White
  • Surfmist
  • Shale grey
  • Classic cream
  • Paperbark
  • Dune
  • Woodland grey
  • Deep ocean
  • Ironstone
  • Monument

If you’re after a more natural finish, the timber coat range is something to take a look at. With six hard-wearing finishes that have been specially developed to provide the natural look of timber on high quality steel, the Timber Coat range makes a great choice.

Profile Design

Once you’ve set your sights on a colour, next thing to think about is profile design. You may not realise how much this customisable feature can make a difference to your door. The Panelift model has three umbrella profile designs, and within each are several variations to explore. One of the most popular profile designs is the Modern Straight Line Seville and you can see why it’s favourite in the image below. It creates an illusion of slats and works great with timber coat colour range.
