Vertical members of a door section which provide structural rigidity
We get the question all the time if the garage door center stile can be replaced. Yes it can! However, in order for that to happen, we will need to know who the manufacturer of the garage door is. Each manufacturer makes there center stile a little different. In other words, the garage door center stiles are not generic, one size fits all.
Our technicians will usually keep the one that pulled out of the garage door. Then they will put an ORB – operating Reinforcement Bracket over the top of the center stile to help give the top panel added strength. As a result, this will help in the aid of opening and closing of the garage door with the attached garage door opener.
