Introducing the new up & over garage door
Up & over garage doors are available in an extensive range of sizes that includes singles, doubles and made-to-measure. You can choose from two types of lifting gear to operate your garage door: canopy or retractable.
Three different materials are on offer to suit your garage’s individual requirements, these are: steel, timber or grp (glass reinforced polyester). Each material comes in a variety of designs and colours to suit.

Canopy lifting gear 
An up & over garage door with canopy lifting gear requires less space for opening, as there are no tracks running back into the garage. It is available in single door sizes up to 2439 mm wide and one-third of the door protrudes from the garage whilst in the open position.

Two-point locking for security Canopy doors utilise a two-point tubular latch system of locking at the top of the door to prevent unauthorised entry. The robust door latch system makes it easy to close but very difficult to force the door open.

Zinc coated torsion spring The energy stored in the torsion spring generates torque and assists with the raising and lowering of the door, delivering a gentle and controlled door motion. A zinc coating provides a protective barrier against corrosive substances.

Durable steel cables & cast alloy drum The cable drum is connected to the torsion spring, round which the steel cables run to operate the door. The quality steel cables and cast alloy cable drum help to ensure a long service life for the door.

Guide rail & anti-drop safety mechanism A small 45 mm black wheel runs inside a guide rail at either side of the door. This ensures the door runs in a fixed linear motion and prevents it from de-railing. The anti-drop device stops the door from crashing down in the event of a spring or cable failure.

Retractable lifting gear 

An up & over garage door with retractable lifting gear opens along horizontal tracks that run back into the garage. It is available in single or double door sizes up to 5000 mm wide

Our team consists of highly qualified and motivated professionals, who are all experts in their field. With many years of experience in the industry, they have the expertise to provide comprehensive, first-rate services to our clients.

Two-point locking for security

 Retractable doors have a simple two-point locking system situated at the bottom corners of the door. The unique rotary latch locks are robust, long-lasting and securely engaged by the locking rods when the door is closed.

Pivot arms and triple spring system

 Solid steel pivot arms and tension springs help to lift and lower the door gently. If one of the springs breaks after many years of use, the triple spring system ensures that the other intact springs will continue to support the door. Black plastic covers for the pivot arms provide trap protection to reduce the risk of injuries.

Guide rails and roller assembly

 A small 45mm plastic wheel sits inside the guide rails which run back into the garage. These ensure the door runs in a consistent, linear motion and prevents the door from de-railing.

Secure parking position

 A small indent in the guide rail at the back of the door provides a secure parking position. This prevents the door from rolling forward and closing in an uncontrolled manner.

Strength, stability and a long-lasting design

 All up & over garage doors, are constructed around a galvanised steel box-section chassis, providing a boundary structure around which to build the door.

The steel, grp or timber material is then infilled to create the door design.

Twin back braces for rigid panel

Our garage doors are manufactured with two galvanised steel braces which are spot welded to the inside, reinforcing the door leaf and ensuring a rigid door panel

In addition, the door panel is structurally stronger and therefore more secure

Strong box section chassis

Manufactured from high-grade galvanised steel, the closed “box section” chassis helps to ensure a strong and stable door construction

The chassis is held together by steel “L shaped“ corner blocks using a button and lock process, meaning there is no need for welding or rivets.

A choice of three materials We only use the very best materials to manufacture our up & over garage doors. Choose from a selection of over 60 door designs in either steel, grp or timber.

Steel

We use high-grade galvanised steel to manufacture our steel up & over garage door range. A zinc coating protects the base metal, acting as a barrier to corrosive elements. A generous layer of powder-coat paint is applied to all surfaces of the door panel, using a state-of-the-art colour system, to safeguard against weathering and corrosive substances in the general environment. The material is cost effective and long-lasting.

Glass reinforced polyester (grp)

The grp garage door range is made using glass reinforced polyester, which sits in a steel box-section chassis. The polyester material is reinforced with very fine strands of glass and placed into a mould to create either a smooth gloss white surface or woodgrain surface texture. The material is lightweight, durable and easy to maintain.

Timber

Our Cedar range is made from solid red cedar, whilst the Elizabethan range is made from solid red cedar with a plywood backing. Cedar wood has natural self-protective qualities that prevent warping, cracking or rotting. Okoume marine grade plywood is used for Elizabethan range. Both materials are highly durable and if properly maintained, could last a lifetime.
