Hardwearing and durable GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) or fiberglass garage doors are renowned for their stability, strength and resilience. They are lightweight and durable enough to withstand rust, splitting or rot and can endure harsh weather conditions, as well as minor bumps and knocks without compromising the security or appearance of your garage door. They’re perfect for recreating stunning designs that are typically made from wood but are more affordable and without any of the maintenance concerns.
Design Choices for GRP Doors
While you may want a simpler garage door design, there are ways to customise your door to create a more bespoke look. In addition to the mechanism of the door, such as automating your door for added convenience and speed, you can also choose a door with windows that let in plenty of light to your garage and are aesthetically pleasing for added kerb appeal.
There are plenty of colours to choose from too, to suit your personal taste or to match the style of your property. You may also want to upgrade the locking system on your door for higher security or replace your timber sub-frame with a steel version for added durability and strength. Talk to a member of our team to discuss the options available to you.
Naturally impact-resistant – GRP can withstand knocks and dents with ease, so it’s not going to be damaged easily. GRP is incredibly stable and has been tested thoroughly, so it’s ideal for providing durability and maintaining its aesthetic appeal for years to come.
Resistant to shrinking and warping – Unlike wooden doors, which can be prone to warping or shrinking if they’re not properly maintained, GRP is low maintenance and won’t change size or shape when exposed to the elements.
Attractive appearance – GRP doors come in a range of styles to suit your property, from high gloss finishes to wood replica doors that mimic the look of woodgrain, to gel-coat layers which create a moulded design.
Environmentally friendly – Since GRP is made from gentle compounds that are largely naturally occurring, and is also often made from grinding and re-using fillers with no long-term negative effects to the planet, GRP can be seen as an environmentally kinder material.
Greater security – GRP offers an excellent strength to weight ratio, meaning it provides fantastic levels of security for your garage and home.

Garador doors are fitted into a rigid box section chassis and deliver a stable garage door that guarantees no twisting or warping can occur. From brass effect or brushed steel handles to modern white handles, and a range of glazing options for windows, these doors are long-lasting and come in a host of different styles.
Fiberglass Garage Doors
GRP, or fiberglass, garage doors are the perfect lightweight, maintenance-free material for the construction of high quality, long lasting garage doors. They come in a variety of styles including up and over garage doors, roller garage doors, sectional garage doors and automated garage doors. Once you’ve chosen your colour and finish, they need no staining or protective finishes to preserve their stability and appearance.
Up and over garage doors are a safe and reliable solution and represent excellent value for money. They’re an extremely popular choice for homes everywhere. Our GRP up and over garage doors are available as ribbed and panelled designs, either as canopy or retractable doors. They look great in a choice of colours and long-lasting finishes that suit both modern and traditional properties.
Sectional garage doors are made up of separate sections rather than a single panel, so they open with virtually no loss of driveway space and with full opening drive-through width, perfect for wider vehicles. Sectional fibreglass garage doors offer excellent single skin or double skin thermal insulation, and rubber weather seals on all sides. Available in high gloss or fine wood effect finishes.
Roller garage doors have a space saving design that is perfect for short driveways and easy access. Open, the rolled-up door stores safely in its own compartment at the inside top of the garage. Closed, the absence of visible locks and handles offers unrivalled security. Our GRP doors are fully powder coated in a variety of finishes, and can easily be automated for complete peace of mind.
Automated garage doors offer the best in user convenience and enhanced home security, with a remote-controlled system that helps you future proof your home. We can install a brand new electric GRP garage door or retrofit automation to your existing door, ensuring many years of fuss-free, low-maintenance operation.
