The side hinged garage door range is increasingly popular with customers who prefer pedestrian access to their garage without having to open the whole door. However, side hinged doors can be expensive with manufacturer retail prices ranging from over £1000 to as much as £5000 for the insulated side hinged range.
To keep to this price you need to order a ‘standard size door’ which is 2134mm wide x 1981 or 2134mm high (plus frame) or, in old money, 7’0 wide x 6’6 or 7’0 high. When you start getting into made to measure sizes, or change material from say steel to timber or GRP then the price starts to climb.
Whilst we call this size ‘standard’ it is surprising how many garages aren’t ‘standard’ size which is what we have here, an opening which is wider than the standard 2134mm door.
So to keep the door a standard size (and the cost down) we packed the opening with timber and cladded either side. The cost of the additional timber and cladding comes to less than a made to measure size door. And to look at the opening, you would have no idea.
If you would like to know more about our side hinged range, or to receive a free quotation, simply give us a call to arrange an on-site survey. If we can save you money on your new door, then we will.
