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

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?

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?

Can you block up my 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?

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.
