Step 1: find the garage door visualiser tool

Step 2: select your own photo or select a sample project – start designing
1) When you log on to the Steel-Line Garage Door Visualiser, you will notice the two options you have for getting started.
2) The first option is “Use My Own Photo”. You can upload a photo of your home and find a garage door that suits your style. The photo shouldn’t be larger than 10MB in file size. By clicking on the “choose a file” button, you can upload a photo from your photo library. If you are using a tablet or a smartphone, you can take a photo with your camera.
3) If you don’t have a photo of your home or just want to browse what kind of garage doors are available, you can click on the second option “Use a Sample Projects” and select a sample project image.
Step 3: draw your doors
1) Click on the “draw your doors” button after uploading a photo of your house.
2) Click on the “add a door” button on your left-hand side.
3) select either “single door” or “double door” for your house. Now you can see a blue mask above the photo.
3) Drag the blue mask to the right position and then adjust the shape by dragging the blue corner points to match the garage opening.
4) If you have two or more garages, you can simply repeat this process by clicking on the “add a door” button and drag another blue mask to the second garage opening.
Step 4: select a product and profile
1) By clicking on the “start designing” button on the top, you will see the four garage door products on your left-hand side.

The four panels layout is suitable for a 1.8 to 2.4 meter high opening, and the five panels layout is suitable for a 2.4 to 3 meter high opening.

Click on the “Ranch – 4 panels” button, you will see the door profile changing on your right-hand side. If you are happy with this garage door profile, you can click on the “DONE” button at the top left corner.

4) For sectional garage doors, there are a few extra options, such as handle, windows and ventilation. The default option is none for handle, windows and ventilation. Let’s take garage door window as an example. If you want to add windows to your garage door, you can click on the “Select Window Style” button and then click on “DONE”. You will see a number of options for your garage door windows on your left-hand side. Click on the “Select Acrylic Colour” button, you will see two colour options for your acrylic window inserts.
