Are all garage doors one standard size?

No, all of Anglian’s garage doors are made to your bespoke requirements so you get the right door for your garage. We don't offer standard sized doors as no one door is the same as the next. We aim to give you the best product, most suitable for your property and your needs.

How secure are Anglian garage doors?

Security is important to us because we know it’s important to you, which is why our garage doors are designed to be strong and secure. For example, our one piece garage doors have a canopy gear with 3-point locking and 5-point retention, whilst our automatic doors have a unique backdrive feature that reacts against attempts to force the door upwards.

Do Anglian garage doors come in a range of colours?

Of course! We know everyone’s tastes are different, which is why we offer our garage doors in a wide range of colours options across all of our garage door styles and designs, meaning you’ll have no trouble finding something that matches your home’s decor.

Do Anglian do garage doors with windows?

White steel sectional garage door with glazed panels

Yes, some of our garage door styles do have various forms of window. Some styles have black dummy-glazing, stippolyte or clear perspex. You can discuss with your Anglian designer which option is best for you.

Do Anglian offer garage doors with built-in access doors?

This is not something we currently offer, but we do provide side-hinged garage doors that can have varied splits, therefore potentially creating a doorway.

If there is another entrance in the garage, we can always provide you with a new door there – take a look at our full range of front and back doors here.

Do Anglian do double garage doors?

Green roller garage door

Yes we do. All of our designs of garage door are available in either single or double styles. This doesn't prevent you from having any style of garage door or colour available to you.

I have a 4x4 and want to be able to keep this in my garage; can you offer a door that will allow this?

Close up of open roller garage door

In this instance we would recommend an Anglian roller garage door. The channels that guide the door up and down are fitted to the brickwork behind the opening. This means you don’t need a frame, widening the opening by up to 150mm. Also, because the door rolls up on to a drum above the opening, you have full access to the roof space of the garage, even when the door is open.

Do you offer electric garage doors or remote controlled garage doors?

Brown roller door with remote control

Yes we do offer both electric garage doors and remote controlled garage doors which have a unique automatic self-reverse safety feature, which operates if closure is obstructed.

What happens to my existing garage door?

White GRP one piece garage door

We will remove and dispose of your existing garage door so you don’t have to. We try to recycle as much of the old product and components as possible, doing our utmost to ensure it is disposed of responsibly.

Can you block up my garage door?

White GRP one piece garage door

Yes we can do. An Anglian designer will visit your property to assess the extent of the work and draw up a quote. We can remove and dispose of your existing garage door. Then we can replace this with brickwork complementary to the existing building and incorporate windows or doors from our extensive range.

Are Anglian garage doors energy rated?

White steel sectional garage door

No, however we are able to offer flush finished insulated sectional doors which from the outside look exactly the same as the standard finish door and internally gives a better finish. However hidden between the two door panels is a 40mm thick layer of thermally efficient foam insulation, which is designed to keep the warmth in and the cold out.

How long are Anglian garage doors guaranteed for?
