Side hung doors have seen a rise in popularity recently due to their sleek design, available in Steel, Timber and GRP. Side Hinged garage doors are available in 50/50 split, or with a 1/3 to 2/3 opening ratio. The latter option is a fantastic solution for garages that require frequent pedestrian access; perfect for cyclists or accessing storage.

Installation

Side Hinged doors also provide a fantastic solution to garages with limited headroom dimensions, as the doors open horizontally. These doors are also suited to garages that are fitted with interal shelving, or feature obstructions like pipework and gas meters. Since the doors do not require tracks or panels that protrude into the garage, the required maintainence for these doors is low. The lack of lifting gears means there is significantly less moving parts than other garage door types. No springs, cables or gears to maintain and replace at all.

Electric operation

Contrary to popular belief, Side Hinged doors can be easily automated! Our installations allow the first door leaf to reach the home (closed) position just before the second leaf, as this closes the doors with an added degree of security.

Hydraulic or mechanical gate operator technology is also an option for automation with Side Hinged doors and these units are highly reliable, suited to frequent usage, whilst operating quietly and smoothly for years to come.
