There are significant advantages fitting a Vangarde plate to a garage door (assuming of course there is an
alternative entry/exit). Many garages are attached to the home and have a doorway into the property, and whilst

garage, they are then free to work on the property’s side-door in seclusion, and possibly using tools stored within
the garage itself. Additionally, this makes it far easier to steal any vehicles kept in the garage. Therefore it makes

Fitting the Vangarde to an ‘up-and-over’ garage door in most situations is very straightforward, though each
