Why choose a side hinged garage door?

A true favourite is the traditional side hinged garage door (also known as swing doors), that open in an outward manner. These doors are again becoming increasingly popular having been thoroughly modernised with a range of designs, colours and the latest safety features.  Standard and made to measure sizes are available up to 10’ wide (50:50 split).

Below are two examples showing a Fort Hartshill side hinged garage door in white and a Westhill side hinged garage door with D handles in grey.


What are the features of side hinged garage doors?

Coming in a range of designs and colours, side hinged garage doors utilise the latest safety features. Doors are fitted with an internal lock handle and top and bottom cable operated lock latches for dependable security.  

All doors feature a strong sub-chassis with bracing plates to ensure rigidity of the door panel. From the traditional ‘Hartshill’ with mock windows to the contemporary ‘Westhill’ with 1200mm D-Handles, there is a door to suit every property and budget.
