This is an in-depth look at Centurion Garage Doors, one of Eden Roc’s garage door manufacturers.
Centurion Garage Doors
Centurion has been around for over 40 years and their doors are littered throughout the state. The vast majority of garage doors in Western Australia are centurion-manufactured. If you have a garage door, it’s probably a centurion manufactured door.
Their Perth offices are based in Wangara – barely 1km from our Eden Roc Offices – which makes life easy when it comes to liaising with Centurion to help our customers out.
Centurion Garage Door Range
The Georgian style of Centurion sectional garage door is a textured style with wide rectangles running along the panels (see the images below). This is a style that allows you to have optional windows along the top panel if you so desire (these windows are not available for those styles that are not textured).
The Georgian is a solid choice for most residential homes.
The Cosmopolitan style of Centurion sectional garage door is untextured – this means that the panels are flat without any rectangles or lines. This is the arguably the most ‘modern’ style of Centurion Sectional Garage Door (bar their custom SunShine series) and would be a good choice for an ‘Up market’ residential home or a modern ‘display’ style home.
The Regency, similar to The Georgian, is a textured style of Centurion Garage Door with rectangles running along the panels. Unlike the Georgian, the rectangled texture of The Regency is much narrower. This gives it a bit more of a ‘busy’ appearance as there are visibly more rectangles on the garage door exterior surface. This is a style that allows you to have optional windows along the top panel if you so desire (these windows are not available for those styles that are not textured).
The Regency is a good choice for homes whose exterior lacks a texture, ie, flat walls.
The Settler style of Centurion Sectional garage door is a textured style with Horizontal lines running along the panels (see the images below). This gives the door the appearance as if there were in fact many more smaller panels that composed the door. The Settler is a very sleek style and a good choice for modern homes.
The Mediterranean style of Centurion Sectional garage door is similar to The Settler in that it has a textured pattern of horizontal lines running along the panels. The Mediterranean style has even more of these horizontal lines than The Settler which gives the appearance of even more smaller panel sub-sections.
This style will pair well with homes whose exterior is in contrast to this door’s horizontal lines. This includes: un-textured (flat walls), or when the texture does not match the long horizontal lines but the horizontal lines – think bricks, or stone.
Centurion Sectional Garage Door Colours
Centurion Garage Doors are made from Colorbond BlueScope Steel. The steel comes in a variety of colours for you to choose from including:
Centurion Roller Doors
Centurion also manufactures Roller Doors.
There is only one model of Roller Door. It’s likely exactly as you imagine it, a pleated sheet of steel that unfurls from a cylinder to lower the door. It has a textured design (as it is pleated) with horizontal lines running across the door’s exterior (again, due to the pleats) – see the image below:
Centurion Roller Door Colours
Centurion Roller Doors are also made from Colorbond Steel, which means the same colour options are available for Roller Garage Doors, as with Sectional Garage Doors.
For the full range of Centurion Roller Door Colours see below:
Centurion Timba-Look Doors
Centurion Sectional Doors can be painted as to give the appearance as though the door is made of wood. This can be done to match the aesthetic of the home, or to give it a new feel to the traditional stock Blue Scope Steel Colours.
These timba-Look colours are not available for the rectangle-textured door styles (The Georgian, and the Regency), but are available for The Cosmopolitan, The Settler, and the Mediterranean.
See the timba-look colour slides below:
Centurion Sunshine Series
The Sunshine Series is Centurion’s ‘modern’ range of translucent doors which allow light to pass through.
These Doors have a Lattice Frame, into which translucent panel inserts sit.
When designing these doors, you get a number of choices:
Lattice Design – how many inserts per panel?
Lattice Frame Colour – which colour will work best for my door?
Unlike previous Centurion Garage Doors – The Sunshine series frames are powder-coated (ie, they are painted with a ‘powder-like’ paint). This gives you a greater choice of colour.
To explore the colour options, we recommend you check out the Eden Roc Visualiser, and explore the colour options once you have selected a ‘custom door’.
Insert type – Perspex or Polycarbonate?
Perspec and Polycarbonate are two different types of plastic, and it’s up to you to decide which option is the best for your Centurion Sunshine Series Inserts:
Perspex is shiner and cheaper than Polycarbonate, but is weaker and more likely to crack (don’t hit it with a stray cricket ball). Polycarbonate is stronger but more expensive.
Available Perspex colours include:
Available Polycarbonate colours include:
The Architectural Series
This Series of Centurion Sectional Doors is the most ‘modern’ in appearance. The doors are composed of panels, which themselves are composed of a number of adjacent aluminium panels (see image below).
Similar to the process when selecting a SunSeries door, you get to choose:
The number of panels that run along the length of the door
You can select up to 4 panels to run along the length of each horizontal panel.
The Frame Colour
The Architectural Series frames are powder-coated (ie, they are painted with a ‘powder-like’ paint). This gives you over 60 colours to choose from
To view the colour options available to your for the garage door frame, we recommend you check out the Eden Roc Visualiser, and play around with the colour options once you have selected one of the ‘custom door’s
The Individual Aluminium Panel Colour
You can then choose the Panel Colour (these can be mixed and matched within the one door, though we generally recommend a maximum of 2 complementary panel colours, else the styling gets a bit messy).
As with the frame colour, the best way to explore the colour options available to you is to check them out on Eden Roc’s Visualiser – first select a custom door, an ‘ali-panel’ door, then play around with the colours.
