The biggest factor determining the track set up for an overhead sectional door is the amount of headroom a project has. Headroom is the amount of clear space above the opening to the bottom of the lowest obstruction. Where some projects may struggle with not having enough headroom, there are projects that have more than enough to justify a full vertical lift set up.
What is a Full Vertical Lift Sectional Door?
Full vertical lift is a type track set up that allows the sectional door to ride up the wall vertically without the use of horizontal tracks. Full vertical lift by Arm-R-Lite requires clear headroom to be at minimum the height of the door plus 12”. For example, if a door is 8-0 high you would need 9’ of clear headroom above the opening or 17’ from floor to underside of the lowest obstruction.
Many applications will find it difficult to set aside that much headroom. However, applications such as warehouses and gyms often have designs or existing structure that is perfect for full vertical lift.
