What is a High-Lift Garage Door?

Do you have a standard garage door but high ceilings in your garage? If so, you’re not taking advantage of valuable vertical space in your garage! High-lift garage door installation is a great way to put this extra space to good use.

With a high-lift garage door conversion, the track is moved nearer to the ceiling, allowing for more clearance as your garage door operates. At a minimum, you can have 12”-15” inches of additional space, allowing you to install custom lifts, store large vehicles, and more.

Can I Install a High-Lift Garage Door in My Home?

The primary requirement for installing a high-lift garage door is having twelve inches of clearance from the top of the door to the ceiling. We need this additional space to install the spring bar, springs, drums, and end plate bearings without the garage door parts getting too close to the ceiling. For example, if the ceiling in your garage is ten feet tall, you can have high-lift tracks up to nine feet. If you have a seven-foot door, this could give you two more feet of clearance in your garage.

FAQs About High-Lift Garage Doors

Because your garage door will sit close to the ceiling—meaning you can’t have a standard overhead opener—you need a jackshaft or wall-mount garage door opener. These are installed on the wall beside your garage door, connecting directly to the springs for maximum lifting power. 

Yes, a professional garage door technician must exchange much of your garage door hardware when changing from a standard lift to a high-lift garage door. A high-lift garage door installation requires new tracks, drums, cables, and springs.

High-lift garage doors have an extended, straight portion of track and then curve to run along the corner between the wall and ceiling. Vertical lift garage doors do not have any curved portions of the track, but they instead open straight up and at a slight angle backward.
