A lever handle is used to operate the door and both door leafs open outwards providing clear and unrestricted space within the garage.

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. We also offer a range of matching garage side doors


Side Hinged doors are available as Centre Split or Off-Centre Split depending on size and design. The right or the left can be the leading door and doors can open in or out. On off centre split doors the large or the small door can be the leading door. As standard doors will be supplied with a brushed steel effect night latch lock and matching brushed steel hinges.

Black and brass hinges are also available but must be stated on order. Unless specified at the time of order, doors will be made with the first door opening door on the right as viewed from outside, opening out.
