Composite is the ideal material for a garage door. Made from the same material as ocean-going yachts, the finish of a composite garage door requires minimal maintenance and is durable and resilient in everyday use. From the front of the door, all you see edge-to-edge is seamless composite. This door comes with a high gloss finish.
Please note that these doors are advertised as an internal frame size, the frame option will add 50mm either side and 50mm along the top.
This door is a 2 crown finish, this means that the galvanised cross bracing is visible on the back of the door.
Composite GRP is very dent resistant however the material is made up of strands of glass fiber and as such when in the garage looking at the back of the door on a sunny day will appear bright, this in no way detracts from the performance of the product or its strength.
The handle position is generally in a central position on the active door leaf.
Door Holders - These are fitted at the top of each door leaf on the inside of the garage. They are made to lock once the door is opened to a 90 degree angle, this is to prevent the door closing in the wind. Once done, simply pull the cord and close the doors.
Frames are steel and powdercoated in a white finish as standard. Colour coded frames are powdercoated to the closest standard RAL colour to match whichever colour panel you choose.

The last few years has seen changes in the garage door market in particular to the thousands of tons of plastic used to protect doors that ultimately is not recyclable and goes to landfill .
Because of the improvements in galvanised steel and the paint finish now being powder coated and oven baked the need to fully protect the doors against the elements is no longer justified .
Therefore the door you are currently looking at here will not come packaged , this will make it easier for you to check for marks and damage but will also mean that you need to take extra care in handling the product before installation.
The following manufacturers do not plastic wrap steel up and over doors.
Fort , Hormann , Garador , Novoferm , Cardale .
Some special made items or special colours will come wrapped but off the shelf sizes in white will not. Timber, Grp ,Roller doors and sectional doors are still wrapped.
Please be prepared that on arrival if you are storing the door for a time you will need to look after the front panel .
Over the next few years it is likely that packaging using plastic in general will dramatically reduce or cease so we hope you see this as a positive step.
