Mews high security garage doors

We’re delighted to have completed another London mews property project, this time installing fully automated, mews high security garage doors.

The client and owner of the beautiful mews home in a conservation area of London was focused on retaining the aesthetics of the original stable doors of the property. 150 years ago, there wouldn’t have been any cars around and the ‘garage’ would have been home to the proprietor’s horse as they were the mode of transport at the time.

BEFORE: The mews property’s original garage doors

Since the local council planning team was insistent on the doors retaining their heritage and unique style, we go to work creating a design that would not only replicate the existing doors in exact detail, but also provide a safe, secure and even cosy home for a 21st century vehicle!

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.
