Side sectional garage doors

Side sectional garage doors are among the newest garage door systems. These doors are called side-sectional because they open and close with individual sectional panels that move horizontally to the left or right. Due to this operating method, they are extremely suitable for installation in garages where there is no space on the ceiling or lintel to mount an overhead system.

With side-sectional garage doors, you can fully utilize the space in front of and behind the garage opening because they open to the side, either to the left or right, and then slide alongside the wall. This operating method is ideal for short driveways, garages located near pedestrian paths, and for solving issues that can arise inside the garage due to tall SUVs or other high vehicles.

Insulated side sectional doors are characterized by satisfactory, but not excellent, sealing capabilities. The high security of double-coated insulated side sectional doors makes them ideal for garages that are not intended for constant heating and temperature maintenance inside the garage.

In addition, insulated side sectional doors offer a wide range of dimensions, a variety of colors, and finishing options, as well as very modern "designer" doors.

Why insulation?
There are three simple reasons to choose insulated side sectional garage doors:

  •     Increased panel strength for improved security.
  •     Satisfactory, though not excellent, thermal insulation properties.
  •     To break the thermal bridge, consequently preventing condensation on the inner side of the garage doors.

None of the insulated side sectional garage doors supplied by KIP KOP d.o.o. contain CFC; they are filled with polyurethane foam, and the structural plate is made of galvanized steel with double coating.
The construction of 40 mm thick panels provides exceptional strength and reduces damage from impacts and collisions.
Properly installed insulated side sectional doors offer satisfactory sealing, reducing heating costs in adjacent rooms, such as storage areas, throughout the year while maintaining a consistent temperature in the garage. This is ideal for storing valuable collector's vehicles or other valuable items that could be damaged in humid conditions. Additional accessories are available for further improving insulation properties (additional top seals, brush seals, bottom seals, etc.) upon request.

The KIPLIFT side sectional garage doors are made from panel boards that are composed of double-layered galvanized steel with a final finish of powder coating. The supplier of the panels for manufacturing KIPLIFT side sectional garage doors is the renowned Swiss company TECSEDO. The construction of the steel panels of KIPLIFT side sectional garage doors typically includes double cladding with an insulating core. The thickness of the door panels with double cladding is 40 mm.

The steel door panels of the side sectional doors are covered with a pattern resembling natural wood on the outer side, giving them a practical and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Smoothly finished steel panels have a simple, modern look that complements contemporary architecture. These side sectional doors are known as "FLAT" doors. There are also doors covered with laminate foil in the appearance of golden or dark oak, mahogany, or walnut. Additionally, our offer includes patterns with a cassette motif or "CUBES."

The basic price typically includes door leaves with a woodgrain texture, except for RAL 9007 color, where a smooth motif with a single line is included as standard. Upon customer request, we can supply doors with the following motifs:
-LINEAR MOTIF woodgrain
-SMOOTH MOTIF with a single line

The design of the mechanics for all side sectional garage doors is quite different from overhead or swinging garage doors. All side sectional garage doors can be operated manually or remotely, and in either case, the operation is very smooth and quiet due to the excellent construction and design elements. According to the law, the panels of all sectional doors must have a design that prevents pinching and potential injuries.

When the side sectional garage doors are open, they offer the entire usable width, as they do not have side lifting arms. The usable height is also fully available.

The doors are equipped with ball-bearing guide wheels covered in silicone rubber, which ensures a silent and easy movement of the doors along the guides.

Sectional side garage doors are one of the few types of garage doors where manual or electric operation offers the same level of security, mainly thanks to the design of the door mechanism itself.

Remote electric control is usually highly recommended for garage doors primarily used for vehicle storage or frequent use. Of course, you should not forget that especially in the dark and rainy conditions, opening garage doors with a simple push of a button cannot be compared to unlocking the handle and manually lifting the door! The latest versions of electronic controllers are very intelligent and offer high-quality control.

All sectional side garage doors can be easily automated, as they are well-equipped with safety features at all dimensions.
It is extremely important that automatic doors are properly adjusted, especially the force sensitivity! In our company, we do this with professional KMG lite measuring instruments.

You can choose from various brands for door automation with us. In our offer, you will find top brands such as LIFTMASTER, BENINCA, STAGNOLI, JOYTECH.
The drive power (500N - 1200N) is adjusted to the door's size.
Regardless of the type of drive you choose, you will always receive 2 remote controls, and additional ones can be purchased separately.
All drives are also equipped with a safety system, and if the door encounters an obstacle, it will automatically stop and reverse. Additional safety can be provided on the customer's request (for an additional charge) by installing additional photo or optical sensors.

Reference dimensions when ordering always refer to the actual wall opening and cannot be installed differently. Pinching fingers is not possible due to the special design of the door panels! Simple manual operation ensures smooth and quiet movement. Thanks to the side offset design, you do not need to step aside.

Sectional side garage doors are one of the safer available types of doors, especially due to their excellent panel construction and the fact that the doors are held in steel guides on each side by at least 5 rollers, providing excellent resistance to attempts at forced entry. When combined with a high-quality electric operator, breaking into the door without special tools (and a lot of noise) is nearly impossible.

Standard handles are black with a cylindrical lock.

Safety is a top priority, which is why every sectional side garage door from our production is equipped with:

  •     "finger security" protection to prevent finger trapping,
  •     a safety switch and an additional hydraulic closer (only for doors with an integrated personal passage),
  •     safety warnings and instructions,
  •     a safety lock and pull handle,
  •     a release mechanism that allows manual opening of the door in case of a power outage.

KIPLIFT sectional side garage doors have sealing brushes integrated into the bottom panel of the door, and rubber seals on the sides of the frame. When properly installed on level ground, these sectional side garage doors can provide good sealing against wind, rain, and insects.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: The level of the building's floor must be in perfect measure to ensure good or at least satisfactory sealing with side garage doors.

Light openings can be installed in the doors, or we can create a complete light panel. These light openings can be supplied in the color of the door or in various other colors. Additionally, upon the customer's request, we can powder-coat the light panel.

The customer can choose between factory powder-coated or imitation color options, which include:


  •     WHITE RAL 9010 / woodgrain structure / linear design
  •     SILVER RAL 9006 / woodgrain structure / linear design
  •     BROWN RAL 8014 / woodgrain structure / linear design


  •     ANTHRACITE RAL 7016 / woodgrain structure / linear design
  •     ANTHRACITE RAL 7016 / smooth panel / 1 line or without lines – sandgrain finish
  •     WHITE RAL 9016 / smooth panel / 1 line or without lines - polygrain finish
  •     GREY RAL 9007 / woodgrain structure / linear design
  •     GREY RAL 9007 / smooth panel with one line
  •     GOLDEN OAK / woodgrain structure / linear design

Custom colors are also available upon request. From our production, we can offer door delivery according to the RAL color chart. At this point, the customer can choose from various designs and appearances.

The sectional side garage doors from our production have a long lifespan thanks to top-quality materials. With the annual service requirement in mind, they also come with a long warranty period, which is:

  •     12 years for the panels (against panel rust, meaning a hole through the panel),
  •     2 years for electronics and other moving components!
