What lifting gear do I require and what Material do I want the door to be made from?
When choosing a garage door, as with any home improvement product, there will be aspects of its looks and maintenance which will sway your decision. While all one-piece doors are manufactured using high strength reinforcing steel bracing to ensure rigidity and longevity, the material used on the surface face of your door needs to be carefully chosen to suite your requirements.
Steel garage doors offer a great combination of robust construction and excellent value for money. They are available in a wide range of attractive styles to suit modern or traditional homes. Our steel doors can be supplied in a range of colours and finishes as standard.
Timber garage doors combine the warmth and beauty of real wood and the very best of garage door engineering. Supplied treated with a microporous neutralising base stain, timber doors are designed to be stained to suit your requirements, and require regular care and attention to retain their good looks.
GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) garage doors offer the user a low maintenance finish combined with unrivalled aesthetics. With the choice of gloss white or authentic woodgrain finish in eight colour options, the range of popular designs with crisp, clean detailing will complement any house style. GRP garage doors need only the occasional wipe down to retain their quality finish.
What size do I need?
Garage doors are available to fit most garage openings. All styles of door can be ordered in one-car size (typically between 2134mm (70'') and 2439 (80'') wide, and 1984 (66'') and 2136mm (70'') high, and the majority also come in double size 4269mm (140'') wide.
What operating system do I want?
We offer both manual operation and the optional luxury of radio remote-controlled opening. The Canopy Door
which operates in vertical tracks on the doors side-frame, and when fully opened, forms a canopy of about one-third of the doors height above the opening. The Retractable Door
which is guided by horizontal tracks inside the garage, and recedes completely when fully opening. Double Garage Doors
are also guided by horizontal tracks inside the garage, and are designed to ensure that operation is as effortless and smooth as a single door. The Sectional Door.
Opened by a vertical lift action, guided by fixed vertical and horizontal tracks, the sectional door has the advantage of having no out-swing when opening or closing, allowing for close parking either side of the door. Ideal for use with larger vehicles, such as 4x4s and people carriers, sectional doors are also climate-sealed when installed.
Radio remote-controlled electric operation. All new up & over and sectional doors are capable of being electrically operated using our range of automatic operators. They are also suitable for retro-fitting to most existing garage door installations. See the separate section for details.
