This garage door installation in Milton Keynes, Bucks comprises of two Cardale Bedford design up and over garage doors.
The customer contacted us after viewing similar designs by other manufacturers they knew they specifically wanted the Cardale ‘Bedford’ design.
Cardale has more than 50 years experience in the industry, they introduced the concept of the ‘panel door’ from which the majority of today’s garage door designs are derived and they were the original manufacturer to design the Bedford up and over door, the first to mimic the appearance of traditional side hinged doors.
For this garage door installation in Milton Keynes our customer chose to have one door on a canopy lifting gear and the other on retractable lifting gear. Canopy doors are the most popular style of lifting gear in the UK where as retractable provides an alternative lifting mechanism where horizontal tracks are attached to the top of the door frame to guide the door open, providing an exceptionally smooth opening and closing action.
Retractable doors are ideal for automation and so we installed a Novomatic 553 Motor to the retractable garage door, providing the customer with the luxury of operating the garage door via remote control.
The Novomatic 553 provides an ultra-reliable, near silent belt drive operator with additional courtesy light and internal quick release. The opener can be enhanced with extra handsets, mini wall mounted push button controllers, key switches and coded keypads.
The next step was for the customer to chose from Cardale’s glazing options. Bedford design garage doors come with black windows as standard. Other options include square lattice, stippled, diamond lattice, transparent and Queen Anne. Our customer chose stippled.
And the finishing touch to this garage door installation is the Aluminium Silberfarbig Eloxiert handle. Cardale up and over doors come with a black handle as standard, but if you are looking for the extra ‘wow’ factor these handles are the ones to choose.
