Side Hinged Garage Doors | Timber & Steel

Side Hinged Garage Doors

Side hinged garage doors combine robust and reliable performance with easy personal access. These doors normally open outwards but there are also options for inward opening. A neat internal finish without the need for tracks, springs or cables means side hinged doors are popular with clients that have converted garages into offices, gyms or playrooms.

Available in a selection of sturdy materials, such as timber and steel, side hinged doors give homeowners easy access to their possessions without exposing the entire garage to would-be thieves. They are the perfect choice for when there are obstructions inside the garage and can even be automated with the use of an electric operator, including those from Hörmann and Garador, to make operation simpler. When automated, the first door leaf closes before the second, to provide even greater security. 

In terms of opening ratio, there are numerous options. As well as the conventional 1/2 & 1/2 split, where frequent access is required, the popular 2/3 & 1/3 split is also an ideal solution. The smaller of the two garage doors then becomes a practical personnel door for easy and secure everyday use.

We supply and install a wide variety of hinged doors from leading manufacturers, so you’re guaranteed to find a garage door that’s right for you.

Another fantastic benefit of side hinged garage doors is their insulative properties. This is particularly true of the steel models supplied by the likes of Ryterna, Hormann and Carteck. What this means is that, in addition to car storage, garages can also be used for something more productive, such as offices, playrooms, workshops and gyms. Our insulated side hinged garage doors offer both great comfort and reduced reliance on heating, giving you the green light to use your outside space as you wish. 

As well as offering high levels of insulation, side hinged garage doors are also easy to maintain. This applies across the board, from our double-skinned steel models to those crafted from timber. Because they swing open without the use of tracks and don’t need to be hidden away when the garage is in use, garage doors with side hinges rarely need to be replaced. They operate independently of cables, springs and gears, a valuable design feature that can save you lots of money in the long run.

Are side hinged garage doors secure?

Side hinged garage doors help to bolster home security by giving users the ability to access their garages without opening them fully. This can keep valuables hidden from sight. The security of your garage door will be elevated if it has a double skin. Garage door locks, which can be supplied with models as standard, can also safeguard your property from attack.

What are the advantages of wood garage doors?

Eyecatching in appearance and easy to repair, wooden garage doors are just as popular as their steel counterparts. Some of the biggest benefits of choosing a wooden garage door design include wood’s soundproof nature, as well as its durability and timeless charm. It is also open to customisation.
