Here are a few images. The wood behind the track is painted black so you can see they open fully.

Cowart Door Systems
around the corner track. Pretty jazzy for the 20's (pun intended). No bottom retainer is common. The doors have been there for a long time so the system must be appropriate. The doors really are nice.

There is only one manufacturer I am aware of making this type of door today and that is Rundum Meir in Germany. Very nice, very expensive and currently not offered in the US. My earlier comments stand. You should easily get replacement hardware on line. Keep the roller bearings lubricated at least once a year using a light oil (3 in 1, LPS2, or a garage door lube from HD) and be check that the bolts are tight. While you are at it do the same for the sectional overhead doors (a local reputable door company or handyman can do it for you too). The big deal is to keep the door sections sealed up from the weather, especially at the end grain at the bottom of the doors where they will be more exposed to weather and will wick up moisture. With pretty minimal proactive maintenance you should be good for another 80 yrs:-). Dave

Houzzers: Megan and Rich HirschLocation: Bexley, OhioGarage size: 525 square feet, detachedDIY or professional project? BothMegan Hirsch loves having outdoor parties, but her yard and main dining room were too small to contain the large groups she wanted to host. The garage, which opens into the home's backyard, had plenty of room to spare. Reserving part of the street-facing portion of the garage for parking still left space for indoor-outdoor entertaining. A 14-foot viewing screen rolls down inside the rear of the garage so the family can host outdoor movie nights and Ohio State University football parties.
