Cotswold Garage Doors are a unique range of GRP up and over doors manufactured using the Hormann 2011 open for infill steel box section chassis as a basis for the entire door panel. The GRP (fibreglass) panel is manufactured in the chosen colour and inserted into the Hormann chassis and secured to offer a GRP up and over door with excellent stability and security as the locking steel rods are used to their maximum effect secured to the steel chassis and firmly secured into a steel section attached to the optional steel sub frame.
The up and over door panel is offered with either canopy or fully retractable operating gear on sizes up to 8 feet (2438mm) wide and only retractable gear on doors at 14 feet wide (4267mm). The operating gear is manufactured by Hormann and gives a smooth, reliable operation, backed by a comprehensive 10 year guarantee. The components are mainly galvanized or zinc plated steel and alloy to ensure maximum resistance to the elements, this included the spring system which on many up and over garage doors are only mild untreated steel meaning they are prone to rusting and breaking fairly quickly in a damp environment.
The GRP panels are available in 9 standard designs in a smooth white or a woodgrain effect finish with a choice of wood effect colours.
Once you have chosen and ordered your new Cotswold GRP door you do not have to concern yourself with any form of finishing as the door is delivered with the woodgrain or white finish fully factory finished and all that is needed to keep the panel clean is an occasional wash or gentle hose down. The GRP panel will not ever rot and the colour is impregnated into the GRP material with a final hand finished effect applied by hand, all this completely resistant to most everyday weather, a small amount of fading may occur in many years of strong South facing sunlight but as we have seen over the years so will all other south facing building products exposed to strong sunlight. The white gloss doors obviously do not fade or suffer from the well documented problems over the years that Upvc windows and doors can sufer in a 'yellowing' of the white face.
