Steel gauges refer to the Base Metal Thickness (BMT) of your garage door.
Each garage door has its own BMT, influencing the scratch and dent resistance afforded to your garage door.
We use COLORSTEEL® where possible, which provides an excellent range of colours and superior scratch and dent resistance.
Below are a list of steel gauges (BMTs) our garages come in, and how they influence your garage door.

Steel gauges in the real world
How do steel gauges translate into real life applications?
0.4-0.55 gauge is often used for steel roofing, with 0.4 being the minimum per NZ building code.
You'll find heaver gauges such as 0.6, 0.75 and onwards in hardier roofs, steel framing and structural steel applications.
Your garage door is made and tested for New Zealand's conditions.
Our garages come in a variety of steel thicknesses to suit your environment.
