A basic steel one piece up and over garage door in a traditional vertical ribbed design. Pre-finished in white as standard and available in all of the most popular standard sizes used in the UK. White (RAL 9016) is the standard colour with 17 optional colours available.

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

The Ordering Sizes given are INTERNAL SUB FRAME sizes.
Steel up and over doors ordered with pre-fitted steel sub frames have an overall size, including the frame, 100mm wider than the ordering size (i.e. internal frame size) and 50mm higher than the ordering height (i.e. internal frame size). Frame has 50mm wide legs and 50mm deep crossbar. Please add your own tolerance for installation although this is normallly recommended to be at least 20mm on the width and 10mm on the height depending if your structural opening is brickwork, blockwork or stone along with other materials.

More standard sizes and made-to-measure sizes are available. Please email or call for details.


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 optionDoor 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 GDO up andover garage 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.
