Bristol Garage Doors Ltd

Personnel Doors

Garage side doors or personnel doors are very convenient if you want to quickly fetch something without opening the garage door itself. Or if, in a short driveway, your second car is parked directly in front of the garage door, blocking any access.

Personnel doors can be hinged on either side and can open in or out. There are matching side doors for almost every garage door style from a selection of manufacturers. Contact us for more information.


At Hörmann, side doors are given just as much consideration, as the overall appearance is only perfect if the side door matches the roller garage door. The side door NT 60 is thus available in all surface finishes and colours. The high-quality 60 mm aluminium frame construction is the ideal frame for the door infill, which is fastened with glazing beads as standard.


Personnel doors can be used for a range of applications, whether you want a matching side door for your garage, or need some added security for a shed or annex. All door designs are available in Personnel versions.

Personnel doors can be hinged on either side and can open in or out. Unless specified at the time of order doors will be made with the hinges on the left as viewed from outside opening out with brushed steel night latch and matching
