Side hinged garage doors
Last Updated on
Side hinged garage doors have been utilised for decades and are one of the most simple, easy to operate types of garage door still in widespread use today.
Side hinged garage doors feature solid doors that are connected to the door frame with hinges. They don’t have any tracks, roller, cables or other such fixing mechanisms and they offer a whole range of different benefits and a unique combination of tried and tested traditional performance and stylish, modern design options.
Our side hinged garage doors are all made-to-order and constructed using double skins steel sections that are filled with PU foam. This provides superb heat and noise insulation and a tubular rubber seal from the leaf to the steel frame delivers a draft-free, watertight perimeter to protect everything you store inside your garage from any outdoor elements.
Every frame on our side hinged doors is manufactured using 2mm think steel for extra strength, safety and security as well as being both zinc- and powder coated to offer additional weather and operational protection. Using only the highest quality components, the door leaves are fitted to the frame with aluminium alloy hinges which feature a roller bearing to provide effortless opening and closing. Each hinge is also adjustable, a feature which ensures the door maintains its shape and form irrespective of how often it is used.
We are able to make bespoke side hinged doors to fit any garage door opening with a maximum size of 10 feet wide and 10 feet high, but we also have the ability to make much larger doors if required, just ask! Our standard doors have a 50/50 or custom split and can be made with a left- or right-hand leaf opening first to suit individual requirements. Bi-folding leaves are also available to accommodate garages located on a short or sloping driveway.
When it comes to designs, finishes and colours, as with the majority of our product ranges, you’ll be spoilt for choice. We can also manufacture replica doors to replace any existing, traditional doors, a service that is imperative if you live in a conservation area and are required to maintain original design. With 14 different section designs that can be painted in any RAL or BS colour you select, you can create a side hinged garage door to suit your own style. Surfaces can also be painted to create a metallic or gloss finish and stainless steel windows added to one door to further enhance the exterior appearance of your garage.
Easy to maintain and available with a whole host of options and accessories, side hinged doors with glazed panels are perfect, not only for garages, but as opening solutions for workshops and offices too as they let daylight in and keep the weather out! Practical, stylish, aesthetically pleasing and proven, side hinged garage doors are here to stay.
