Up and Over Doors Dorchester

Up and over garage doors Dorchester fall into two main categories for the types of operating mechanism - canopy or retractable. This is how the garage door panel opens and closes and both mechanisms have their uses in different applications.

Always remember that an up and over garage door Dorchester requires a fixing sub frame - either in timber or steel - it will not fit directly to any garage structure without the sub frame! This needs to be fitted inbetween or behind the structural opening.

Insulated Roller

Insulated roller doors feature sound and thermal insulation with Interlocking twin walled aluminium sections containing a CFC-free insulating foam meaning your garage can be used as an extra room.

Aluminium laths are the ideal solution - corrosion resistant, light yet strong. The range of solid, metallic and woodgrain finishes allow a choice sympathetic to your home - Guaranteed exterior finish for 10 years. Vision slats - Polycarbonate clear glazing is available for insulated alarmed doors, on a proportion of the door curtain, to allow natural light into the garage. It out-performs the ordinary garage door for ease of use, insulation, finishes, safety and security and all doors are manufactured under ISO 9001 quality guidelines. All insulated doors come complete with remote control operation for extra convenience, security and safety. Foam filled aluminium laths help insulate against heat loss and noise, ideal if your garage is under a bedroom or you use your garage space as a workroom.

Fits garage openings of all shapes and sizes on single and double garages. Security as standard with positive locking, no external lock to pick or force . The compact coiling of the door as it opens requires minimal space inside the garage, making the most of overhead storage areas. Vertical travel allows "park right up" convenience inside and out and provides maximum drive through width and height for MPV's and 4x4's.

The doors come in 2 sizes. The standard door requires a space of 300mm x 300mm and the compact version of the insulated roller door requires 205mm x 205mm of headroom.

The insulated roller also comes in a manual operation version.

Single Skin Roller

The roller shutter garage door is one of the neatest garage door solutions available with vertical opening and closing and no internal tracking mechanism required inside the garage at all. This provides you with more room on your driveway for parking and the option for additional storage space above where a standard up & over door would open. You can also park right up to the roller door, outside or inside and still operate it.

The whole door will usually roll into an average size of about 450mm in a position behind the garage lintel. With an almost limitless selection of colours and wood grain finishes, as well as most doors being made to order, the roller door is a garage door worth looking at. The roller garage door is the most diverse type of door in terms of installation positioning and can be installed on practically any shape or size of garage.

Roller shutter garage doors are available as insulated double skinned aluminium and non-insulated single skin steel with the option of manual or remote control electric operation.

Sectional Garage Doors Dorchester

Sectional garage doors Dorchester are fast becoming one of the most popular and practical choices for a safe, very secure and easy to use versatile garage door system. They are called sectional garage doors because they open and close in separated individual panel sections, operating vertically without any swing out from the structural opening and tracking mechanism at all. Because of this operation almost any shape of garage opening can be installed to, i.e. arched, angled corners, etc.

Sectional doors come in a selection of insulation thicknesses from single skin to 42mm.

Side Hinged

Secure, corrosion resistant Side Hinge garage doors manufactured from premium grade galvanised steel available in a wide choice of colours and finishes. All side hinged doors supplied pre framed as standard with a night latch and deadlock, two monkey tail shoot bolts and four anti-drop anchored dog bolt hinges per door leaf.
