The history of garage door dates back to 450 BC when giant gates were used to store chariots. In America, these doors came into existence in the early part of the 20th century. The first catalogue for the garage doors was published in the year 1902 by an American manufacturer, Cornell Iron Works. A garage door is a giant door on a garage that operates either manually or electrically. Garage doors are quite large to accommodate vehicles of varied shapes and sizes. Smaller garage doors are generally manufactured in a single panel that tilts across the garage ceiling. Larger doors are usually a combination of several jointed panels that either rolls up on tracks across the garage ceiling or they roll above the doorway.
The operating mechanism of these doors requires negligible human or motor effort, as they based on either spring load or counterbalance method to equalize the weight of these doors. The most common materials used for the manufacturing of these doors are wood, metal or fibreglass. Insulated garage doors are so available which prevent loss of heat.
