Metal garage doors

Metal garage doors

Garages provide security for some of our most expensive items, including lawnmowers, tools and even cars. This makes it vital to have a strong, secure garage door to protect our belongings and metal doors offer that in abundance.

Steel is easily the most used metal for garage doors in the UK and with hundreds of designs and finishes you’ll be able to find something that sets your home apart from the crowd.

Garage doors can be manufactured to fit any size and there are a range of mechanisms you can choose from for how the door would open. However, be sure to use thicker metal in order to avoid stresses and creases distorting the steel panels.

Types of metal garage doors

  • Steel up and over garage doors

This type of garage door incorporates just one swift movement to open and rigidity at every angle ensures it remains strong. A locking system prevents the door from sliding back down once opened, making sure it’s safe too.

The up and over system is one of the most popular in the UK because of ease of installation and cheaper price. It’s easy to operate as well and allows maximum space in the garage.

  • Steel sectional garage door

This type of garage door operates in a similar fashion to the up and over, but the sections allow you to partially or fully open the door. Sectional doors can be manufactured to 7,500mm in width and 3,000mm in height.

These doors are growing in popularity throughout the UK and are simply installed by professional companies. Just like the up and over they allow maximum space in the garage.

  • Steel roller shutter garage door

Roller shutter doors are a novel technique which allows the steel to unravel, whilst maintaining strength and providing a pattern for the front. This is often used for extremely large doors and is rarely seen in domestic use.

Energy Performance of Houses

The below information displays the energy performance of properties in Uk. Energy ratings range from A to G, with A being the most energy efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating factors heavily when attempting to sell your home, as possible buyers will see just how much they're likely to be paying for their home heating bills. Property upgrades such as insulation help to substantially improve a home's EPC rating.
