The original traditional Up and Over Steel Garage Doors and Side Hung Timber Garage Doors, although still available, have made way for more modern Sectional and Roller Shutter Garage Doors.
Automatic Garage Doors (also known as Electric or Remote Control Garage Doors) have also become more fashionable over the years and the fitting of electric operators is rapidly becoming the norm. We also offer electric garage door repairs and garage door spare parts.
The proven up and over Garage door opens upwards with a swing-out action before parking itself under your garage ceiling
Sectional doors open vertically, requiring less space to open and close both in front of and inside of your garage. If space constraints within your garage are an issue because of your vehicle, a sectional garage door would allow you to retain the full drive through width as there are no mechanical arms required, unlike with up & over garage doors.
Side-Hinged garage doors provide a traditional alternative that is becoming rapidly more popular where a garage is used for storage or items rather than vehicles, as pedestrians can have simple access to their garage without having the difficulty of lifting the door up & out of the way. If you are considering wooden gates, this type of garage door system is popular to ensure harmonisation of materials.
Garage Roller doors are becoming our most popular garage doors, they require little space to open & close as they operate vertically & don’t require any internal tracking mechanisms, making them ideal for driveways that have a very limited amount of space-. Remote control as standard blends the convenience of power operation with smooth, vertical opening and the benefits of insulation to provide the perfect solution for any garage. Our roller garage doors are made to measure to your requirements and fully CE marked. With tightly coiling curtain design, you will achieve maximum drive-through height will accommodate high off-road vehicles and people carriers whilst the option to install the door behind the garage door opening giving you brickwork to brickwork drive through width.
