The Farndish up and over door deals with all those garages which are accessed frequently on foot with a built in pedestrian hinged wicket door.
The wicket door only opens outwards and can be specified on the left or right hand side. It is 800mm wide regardless of the garage door ordering size.

Pre-finished in white as standard and available in several of the most popular standard sizes in the UK. The door comes fitted with either canopy or retractable operating mechanism as required.

The standard colour is white (RAL 9016) with 11 optional colours at a small extra charge.

Available without a steel sub frame for installation to a timber sub frame or with a factory fitted steel sub frame to fit directly to your structural opening.

As with all up and over standard size doors the sizes refer to the opening size of the framework so always remember to add on your timber or steel sub frame sizes to give your overall dimensions, especially important when fitting the door and frame inbetween a structural opening. The up and over door ALWAYS has to have either a timber or steel sub frame and cannot be installed without a sub frame.

The GDO up and over garage doors are available in a range of standard and purpose made sizes and the first option to decide upon is whether to use canopy or retractable operating gear.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages and generally you have canopy gear is you only every want a manual door and retractable if you want to add an electric operator to the door.

The Canopy gear has a preassembled torsion spring above the door panel which lifts the door panel via a cable either side and once opened the door panel sticks out about a third and hence the name ‘canopy’

Retractable operating gear has arms either side lifting the door panel both assisted by tension springs. The motion of the retractable door is far more direct which means it does swing out more but ends up fully retracted inside the garage on the horizontal rails the door slides along. Fitting an electric operator to a retractable garage door is very easy indeed as long as you have the headroom and length to take the operator and its boom. 

Colour Finish
Choose from 18 standard powdercoat finished colours with the standard white at no extra charge (RAL9016)GDO Handle option Door panel is finished inside and out in the same colour chosen 

Handle Option
We offer a standard black handle with euro profile cylinder locking or the option of no handle at all and no hole drilled either when you are putting an electric operator onto the door.
(Most other up and over door brands are not able to offer the door without the handle hole drilled)

Factory Fitted Steel Sub Frame
This is an option we recommend as you receive a door with the frame already fitted and ready to fit into the garage aperture. The frame is a box section steel finished in either white or any of the other colours offered.
It is a 50mm wide frame all round the door on all the steel up and over doors so for the OVERALL dimensions simply add 100 mm to the ordering width and 50mm to the ordering height.

4 point locking
We offer the option to have 4 points of internal locking rather than the standard 2 point locking making the door considerably harder to break into by force.


All doors have a strong sub-chassis with bracing plates to ensure rigidity of the door panel.

The Up and Over doors feature a simple but effective cable operated latches that are engaged and disengaged with the locking handle.

Canopy Gear is spring assisted and provides a simple and effective solution for doors up to 8ft wide.

Retractable doors run on smooth polymer rollers in suspended tracks and are perfect for remote control operation.

The wicket door (pedestrian access door) can be on either side as viewed from outside (opening outwards).
