The Warwick is an up & over door in a panelled design, with curved windows to add to the classical appearance. This is perfect if your driveway won't allow for side hinged doors (i.e if it is short, or sloping), but you would like a barn door look. This traditional design mimics many real timber doors - the composite material is indistinguishable from the real thing, but without the hassle of the upkeep and the huge price tag! 

GRP Composite is a fibreglass type material, that is used to build ocean-going yachts amongt other things. It will withstand high salt levels and damp environments (i.e seaside locations) that timber will not, and doesnt warp or crack with changes in the weather. This makes it the perfect material whether you live by the sea, or simply wish to buy a door that will last a lifetime, and can simply be wiped clean to remove any dirt if needed. 

The GDO composite doors are available without a frame, for fitting to your own structure, or with the option of a factory fitted steel frame for a simple installation. The frames come in a choice of three powder coated finishes to compliment your chosen door colour (White, Black or Brown). 

The canopy gear is ideal for manual use, and does not require intrusive tracks inside your garage taking up space. If you wish to add an electric operator to your door for easy access, we have a range of operators suitable for use with canopy style doors, please contact our sales team on 01926 463 888 for more information on this. 

 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
Single doors are available with the option of a pre-fitted steel frame that provides simple installation and a stable platform for door operation. Frames have an exterior powder coating available in white, brown or black. Please specify the colour when ordering.

4 point locking - FOR MANUAL DOORS ONLY
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.

GDO Pull Handles S/S Care and Maintenance
GDO garage doors come with pull handles to the front panel as standard.
The pull handles are made using grade 304 Stainless steel for use externally and internally in heavily sanitised areas such as kitchens and washrooms. 
Like all steel, failure to keep the item clean can cause surface blemishes and what looks like a major product failure and rusting.
You will often find marks appearing in the winter when the roads have been gritted, salt on the surface are all steel products arch enemy.
If your pull bars develop small blemished areas during December, January and February in particular then you should wash them off using cold water and washing up liquid, you can use a cream cleaner like CIF rubbed lightly to remove the blemishes.
If you have them appear it means you have salt on the surface and need to increase the frequency of the door washdown.
Please remember all stainless steel can blemish even knives and forks in a dishwasher because salt is used as a scrubbing agent, wiping blemishes off with a cloth is standard practice and you should treat the door bars the same, clean and wipe regularly. 
If you live close to the sea or estuary you should apply a light oil after washing once a month to keep the item clean and fresh.
