Materials for side hinged garage doors
Side hinged doors can be made from various materials, including steel, timber and GRP.
Timber – Timber doors can be designed to match existing designs on your property and there are many types of wood to choose from, depending on whether you want a more modern or classic feel.
Steel – Contemporary and reliable, steel doors come in a range of stylish designs and colours. Double-skinned doors are the ultimate choice if you’re looking for security and durability, and they can be fitted with additional security upgrades too.

Can side hinged garage doors be automated?
Side hinged garage doors can be manual or electric, depending on the size of the door, though they tend to be manually operated.
Can I insulate a side hinged garage door?
Yes, side hinged doors can be insulated effectively to provide you with increased energy efficiency and comfort. This is particularly important if you intend to use the garage for another purpose, such as a home gym, an office or a kid’s playroom.
Are sub frames different for side hinged doors?
For most side hinged doors, the steel sub frames have a rebated edge to act as a stopper when the door is closed which provides a better weather-seal between the panel and the frame. Without this edge, there would be a significant gap around the door panels which would make the door noisy and cold.
What sizes are available?
Side hinged doors can be made to bespoke dimensions, but they are most commonly used for single garages with a maximum width of 3m. Garage openings larger than this will require additional heavy-duty hinges to fix the panels to the sub frame.
