I have 10 X 10 roll up doors. They don’t seal well for retaining heat or A/C but I like the width. I didn’t want overhead doors because of limitations when using a lift. I’ll measure the true width and height and get back to you. I’ll get you the name of the door company too. They weren’t cheap!

At my day job, the roll up doors sit in a channel of a Z type of bracket that bolt to the back side, or interior of the opening. So, designed for a variance of openings. Most of the doors on my shop are 12' wide by 14' tall. Some insulation value. Electric, with either push button or remote control, manual back up. Picture attached is a shot from the opposite side of my shop.

The garage door rough opening should be 10' x 10', actual door size. The metal siding and weather trim will finish it off.

Just measured my doors. Exactly 10’ wide. Frame on sides is 123.5” but the rolled up door is a few inches lower than the top of the frame, so it’s gonna also be 10’. Which means I actually have a 10’ X 10’ opening.

I have used rollup doors direct (1877-rldoors) twice now, the last doors had a whisker style seal which was much tighter than conventional seal, easy to put up and build any size no extra charge. Only problem I had was shippers have trouble handling and with out damage, both occasions rollupdoorsdirect resolved problem and held shippers accountable,hope this helps Pat

So doing the math, at 27.5' if I use two 10'x10' doors I will have 28" in the center and 28" on either side. Take in to account the width of the walls and the area on the sides is more like 21". Guess it's a good thing I will have 28' of length.

That’s my son’s 68. I think the balls are two different sizes. Options are a good thing.
