Garage Door Guide


Because there are so many manufacturers, styles and types of Garage Doors available, we have designed this page as a guide through the different operating mechanisms, materials and finishes available with links to pages showing the most popular choices and options.

Up and Over Doors
This is by far the most common type of garage door in the UK. They are available with two kinds of operating system, SafeLift Canopy and Slideaway Retractable gear.

With SafeLift Canopy Gear, when opened, the door forms a 'canopy' with roughly one third of the door outside the garage. Suitable only for single doors   A single or double Slideaway Retractable door opens along horizontal tracks inside the garage and retracts almost completely into the garage when opened

We can supply up & over doors in many sizes and materials from most of the major manufacturers - please follow the links for more information:
