Benefits of Side Hinged Garage Doors
Both GRP and Steel side hinged garage doors have standard security features to keep out intruders. Handles are lockable and operate multi-point shoot-bolt locks. A strong steel chassis around the edge of the door helps to prevent forced entry.
Our GRP and galvanised steel garage doors are resistant to the elements and the damage they can cause over time. Weather seals are fitted between the frame and the doors as standard, helping stop water ingress and draughts. This means you can store your car and tools with confidence.
Strong and Durable
The materials we use for our side hinged garage doors are strong, hard to dent and treated to stand the test of time. GRP is a strong modern composite that's hardwearing and won't rot, warp or rust. The zinc in galvanised steel helps prevents rust and weathering, while the high grade of the steel makes it tough and sturdy.

Side hinged garage doors are secure, but the level of security on any garage door depends on the security features you choose. This often differs with the company you use and door material. We make our garage doors with high-grade Steel or GRP, which are harder to force than lower quality materials, due to a higher tensile strength. We also fit key locking handles and multi-point locks as standard.
GRP garage doors are not better than steel per se, but they do have advantages. During manufacture, GRP is easier to mould into shape than steel, making it more versatile. Steel needs a lot of high heat and friction to create, while GRP doesn’t. Unlike galvanized steel, GRP doesn’t need chemical treatment or finish to make it last longer. It is also easier to maintain and will not warp, rot or rust over time. Overall, metal garage doors are more widely used than GRP, and therefore have more options available, like sectional doors and aluminium roller doors. When it comes to choosing the right material for your garage doors, it is important to consider how you use your garage and what you store in it.
GRP side hinged garage doors are made of a mixture of glass fibres and polyester resin. The fine glass fibres provide strength, while the polyester resin helps to bind the fibres together. Super fine glass fibre strands get woven to create a kind of pliable fabric. This gets shaped into a mould before adding the polyester resin, which creates a strong, rigid panel. This material is durable, weather-resistant and low-maintenance. GRP is a practical, cost-effective choice of door material for your garage.
