Types - Side Hinged Garage Doors

What are Side Hinged Garage Doors? 

A Side Hinged garage door set comprises 2 separate door leafs that open independently, one at a time.  They open out.  The door set can be constructed with either the right or left leaf opening first.

There are two types of construction, mirroring either non-insulated Up and Over garage doors or insulated Sectional garage doors

Each garage door is purpose made for best practical fit at no additional cost.  This type of garage door is ideal for installation either within the garage opening or behind it for increased access width and height.  

You have a choice of contemporary and traditional designs with optional glazing.  

Also available is a matching garage personnel door and a matching main front entrance door for your home, all purpose made to suit and designed with style and elegance in mind.

Available up to 3m wide or 2.5m high.   

These garage doors are typically supplied with lever handles and a euro profile lock.  The insulated doors are fitted with a fully rebated steel frame and threshold.

Finishes include white and a large range of optional colour and wood effect finishes (most at additional cost), available with matching or contrasting  surrounds.
