You can even design your own door with the open for infill frame!
Take a good look at the exterior of your home, consider what is important to you in a garage door and come in for a chat, no one knows more about garage doors than we do!
We have both options on display in our showroom, to demonstrate to our customers.
Up and over garage doors come in a variety of materials, including steel, timber, GRP or upvc plastic. Steel doors are the cheapest option and would be maintenance free for at least 10 years. They are powder coated and don’t need re-painting and come in a number of RAL colours to suit. They are also available in a range of decograin colours, which are made to appear wood-like to the eye. Timber doors can be made in a variety of different types of wood and have to be well maintained to preserve the natural beauty of the wood. GRP or glass reinforced polyester offer a more durable garage door and are approximately twice the cost of a steel door.
Garage doors can have added security for customers’ peace of mind. 4 point locking system, rather than the standard 2 point locking (see picture), extra security bolts can be added, Hormann automated door with auto de-latch which means it is locked by the operator with a steel hook and also utilises the existing locking on the door, after market status indicators which tells you status of door from inside your property, Hormann operator has optional extra to have a status controlled handset. Pop in to our showroom and have a chat with one of our team if extra security is of concern. We have various options which comply with the ‘Secured by Design’, which is insurance and police compliant.
Both canopy and retractable options can either be fitted between your brickwork, or behind, giving extra drive through width. We have garage doors fitted both ways in our showroom to demonstrate this. The retractable option allows less drive through width due to the lifting arm mechanism, however, Hormann offer ‘Plus gear,’ which moves the pivot point up, allowing more drive through width (see picture). We also have this option set up in our showroom for demonstration purposes.
Up and over garage doors are available in any of the standard sizes, ranging from 6’6” wide to 14’ and 6’4” high to 8’. You can, of course, have a made to measure up and over garage door in order to fit an obscure opening size. Standard garage door sizes come in metric or imperial sizes, especially suited to the UK market, with either a 60mm or 75mm frame. Both canopy and retractable up and over garage doors can be fitted between your brickwork or behind. We have both these options available in our showroom to demonstrate this.
RCS can be fitted to both canopy and retractable garage doors, however, retractable doors are easier to automate. A bow arm conversion kit would need to be fitted to a canopy door in order to automate. We have up and over garage doors in our showroom, set up on a manual basis and also with operators.
So, once you’ve had your new door installed, there are a few maintenance tips which our engineers will discuss with you, but if you need a reminder or simply want to clarify what he said, then here are the main points to be aware of:
Guarantees – all manufacturers have their own guarantees for different aspects, eg door, motor, but most doors are guaranteed for at least 5 years. See the individual manufacturers websites for further information regarding their own guarantees.
