Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional doors are by far the best (made up of several separate horizontally hinged panels) and fit to the rear surface of the front brickwork of your garage, and as such need a small amount of clear brickwork to the sides and top of your opening.
The entire door rises vertically upwards and then backwards into the ceiling space. No door frame is required which increases the available drive-through width.
Good security and good protection against the weather with a seal all around the door, doors with or without insulation are available. Sectional doors are generally manufactured in steel although some specialist timber and GRP versions are available.
Easy to automate as any motor is suitable - a soft start/soft stop opener gives a real touch of class.

An economical solution, Steel garage doors are galvanised for protection against the elements and come in a range of finishes:
- Primed Doors
Are supplied in primer for you to finish in your choice of colour. A £40/50 saving can be made when purchasing a primed door but remember that you will have to purchase paint and will probably have to re-coat every few years. Only worth considering if you are on a tight budget or want your garage door in a special colour shade.
- Plastisol Coating
A maintenance-free vinyl (Plastisol HP200) protective coating for the outside of the door (usually primer finish on the inside of the door). Available in a range of colours and smooth/textured finished depending on the manufacturer. Plastisol coatings generally have a 10-year guarantee.
- Powder Coating
A polyester powder coating of dry paint particles is applied and then baked in an oven. This causes the powder to melt and harden into a tough, colourful smooth finish. This covers both the outside and inside faces of the door. Available in a range of colours. These doors can be re-painted should the need arise in future.
The traditional beauty of natural wood gives a real touch of class to your garage door. 'Up and over' type doors are usually mounted on a steel chassis for strength, whereas side hinge doors are normally solid timber throughout. Woods used by the manufacturers are solid Cedar and Marine Ply which are usually environmentally sourced. You will of course need to maintain your timber door through the years as per manufacturer’s instructions.
