A sectional door is a door with individually separated panels that can be opened or closed in section. Usually, this type of door opens and closes vertically.

They work like sectional doors but are different in the sense that sectional doors occupy a wider flat area above while rolling doors only use much smaller space on one side of the door only. Although it is not as thick as a sectional door, a rolling door is also strong and durable. This type of door is best for garage with narrow space.
