The Dominator ValeroTM is a modern minimalist steel sectional garage door roll-formed from medium gauge steel to produce a dramatically flat entry point to your garage and home.

The Valero's Smooth flat finish complements modern monolithic cladding trends as well as the intricate horizontal lines of weatherboard and brick.

The subtle horizontal lines produced by the panel joins create a strikingly simple effect that works equally well with Brick, Weatherboard and flat monolithic claddings where the overall architectural style is modern and crisp.

This door style can also be fully insulated to help regulate the internal garage temperature and reduce sound transmission into and out of the garage.

Designed to be operated with an automatic garage door opener, we recommend Dominator Openers for Valero Sectional Garage Door installations.

The full range of window options may be fitted to a Valero sectional door, with glazing options of acrylic or toughened glass.

Manufactured by roll-forming 0.55 BMT COLORSTEEL®, the Valero provides a crisp, modern focal point to the front of your home.

Creating a Truly Flat Door

Dominator takes pride on producing quality doors and openers.

Some things are out of our control – like the direct heat of the sun and seasonal temperatures that can cause irregularities in the door panel surface (due to thermal expansion). The colour you choose can also play a part.

When we produce our doors, we make every effort to take this into account and minimize the effect of thermal expansion across the door.

For a more consistent flatter door, we recommend either a Sierra or the negative detailed Nevada, both produced from heavy-gauged steel.

Please give our friendly team a call for further advice around your requirements and expectations.

For a truly flat-panelled door, we recommend either a Sierra or negative detailed Nevada, both produced from heavy-gauged folded steel.

• Smooth Finish

Note: The process of roll forming sheet steel may cause irregularities in flat panel surfaces. Smooth finishes can highlight these irregularities under certain lighting conditions and viewpoints.

For a truly flat-panelled door, we recommend either a Sierra or negative detailed Nevada, both produced from heavy-gauged folded steel.

When a sectional door is automated with a garage door opener, no manual locking mechanism is required. The Opener is geared so that the door cannot be pushed or pulled open from the outside.

We recommend all our Sectional Doors are fitted with an Automatic Opener from the Dominator GDO range. If your door must be operated manually, an external lock is available as optional extra.


Doors are provided for standard headroom (350mm) situations, unless otherwise specified.

Rear torsion and Intermediate Low Headroom systems are available as optional extras. Please discuss Low Headroom requirements with us.

Have you thought about insulating your new garage door?!

It’s been another season of weather extremes and while we can’t do much about the climate outside we can help make the space behind your new Dominator Insulated Garage Door and Opener much more comfortable.


We know every home is different and every garage is used differently, we have created our Insulated Series to give you the choice should you wish to insulate your new Dominator Sectional Door.


We’ve taken our most popular styles of sectional doors and added a sophisticated insulator used the world over. Silver-grey in colour, this unique product is EPS infused with graphite to further absorb infrared energy and reflect heat providing around 20% better insulating performance than standard EPS. A remarkable product matched to a premium brand.

At the same time your door becomes an excellent barrier to noise pollution. The acoustic qualities of our Insulated Series provide the perfect shield against noise entering and/or exiting your garage – great for busy roads or budding musicians!

All this is fancy stuff but the bottom line is our new Insulated Series garage doors will help regulate the temperature and noise in your garage so you can use it the way you want to. Yet another reason to talk to your nearest Dominator Dealer today about a door & opener package that perfectly fits your lifestyle.


The Mulflute backing that houses our precision-cut insulation is a carbon-grey finish that adds a distinguished look to the internal face of the door. Low maintenance yet replaceable.

All this with the same quality hardware, styles and finish on the front of the door that people around New Zealand have come to know and expect from the trusted brand of Dominator.


Available in Daylight Opening Sizes (DLO) from 1825mm to 3440mm in height and from 2400mm to 6600mm in width.

Additional sizes may be available, please discuss your requirements with your local Dominator Dealer.
