GRP Up and Over Garage Doors

The moulding process used to produce GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) up and over garage doors enables the manufacturer to create a larger range of design options than possible with other materials, as well as creating a panel that is both seamless and low maintenance.

In addition, the choice of finishes, either smooth gloss white or timber effect woodgrain, together with a range of optional extras, such as woodgrain colours, handles in various finishes and windows, enable the homeowner to create a door with a touch of individuality.

Up and over doors are supplied with either a “canopy type” or “retractable type” operating mechanism and it is important that the correct lifting mechanism is chosen for your garage.

Canopy Type Gear:

Most popular an economical type of operating gear.

Door travels in vertical tracks and therefore eliminates the need for horizontal tracks protruding into the garage space.

Maximises drive-through width.

In open position door projects approximately one third of the door height forming a canopy.

Suitable for doors up to 2440mm wide.

A canopy door is not the ideal choice if the door is to be electrically operated.

Retractable Type Gear:

Horizontal overhead tracks allow door to fully retract inside garage when open.

Available for doors of all sizes, standard gear for doors over 2440mm wide.

Ideal choice if door is to be electrically operated.
