Benefits of Up and Over Garage Doors
Durable and Low Maintenance
Easy to maintain and durable, up and over garage doors stand the test of time. The zinc in galvanised steel prevents rust and weathering to give the door a long life. GRP garage doors are weather resistant, so they only need a light clean to keep them looking good.
Standard and Optional Security Features
Handles have hard to pick security locks and multipoint locking as standard, which makes the door hard to force. The high tensile strength of GRP and steel also makes them hard to break into. Add electric operation for extra layer of security, including keypad entry so you can lock the door with your own code.
Up and over garage doors come with retractable gear, making them easier to open and close. When you open the door, the retractor helps move the mechanism up and back along the tracks inside the garage. The smoother open and close means it takes less effort to operate them, and the retractor makes them safer too.
Up and Over Features
Optional canopy gear is available to increase shelter. Around a third of the up and over garage door protrudes from the front of the garage when it's open. It makes a great shield from the sun or the rain when you're working on your car or your next DIY project.
Remote Control Access
Upgrade to electric up and over garage doors by adding remote control opening. You get two hand transmitters and a wireless internal wall control button, which lets you open and close the door without using the remote or the key. Add an external wireless keypad so you don't get locked out if you lose your keys and remote.
Enhance your up and over garage doors with clear, opaque black or stippled perspex glazing. Add decorative glass patterns like diamonds, crosses or lead effect. To view the full list of up and over garage door designs with glazing options, download a brochure today.

Your Questions Answered by Us
Up and over garage doors prices depend on the design, colour and optional extras you choose. For example, adding glazing or electric operation with remote control and keypad entry increases the cost, so this is something to consider when buying one. If you have any questions, talk to our team on Livechat to get started.
The amount of room you need for an up and over garage door depends on the size of the door. You need to allow headroom for the opening mechanism and space on either side so the door doesn't hit anything during operation. A typical up and over door needs 12 inches of headroom for the door tracks. The recommended space on either side of the door is 4-6 inches. Up and over doors need space, so if you have a low ceiling garage and no space in-front, consider more compact options like aluminium roller doors.
Up and over garage doors are a secure option for your home, but how secure depends on the hardware and extra features you choose. Reputable companies, such as Anglian, produce doors from strong, high-quality materials that are harder to break into. They tend to have locking gear like key operated handles and multipoint locks. Our up and over garage doors have these security features as standard. Add remote control or keypad entry to make yours even more secure.
The difference between sectional and one piece garage doors is the amount of space they need. A sectional garage door is in hinged sections, moving up a track and bending at the top before sliding back along the ceiling. A single panel door tilts outwards from the garage before swinging up in a curved motion. So you need more space for a one piece door, in-front and inside. Sectional doors are also often more expensive because they need electrics to operate them, while one piece can be manual or electric. Both are practical for different reasons, so when choosing a garage door you need to think about your specific needs.
A one piece tilt up garage door is another term for an up and over garage door. This is a single panel door that tilts outwards when you open it, before swinging up into the garage in a curved motion. The door has pivoting arms on each side that move it up and down on tracks which run up the height of the door and curve up and back into the ceiling of the garage. These doors are a popular choice because they're practical, secure and cost-effective.
