The answer to your selected question is shown below.


Fitted correctly in the opening these insulated side hinged garage doors are very good for heat, cold and sound insulation with weathersealing combined.
The insulated side hinged garage doors we sell on our website are manufactured by Carteck, HormannGDO and Ryterna and are the best side hinged doors for general insulation and also great for security too. Most doors are made to order as standard and come completely built into the aluminium sub fixing frame from the factory. You can choose from traditional designs but also many very modern designs incorporating various windows, small, large and long.

The door panels are manufactured using the 40mm thick double skinned steel panels from insulated sectional doors, so are already proven beyond any doubt for their quality and durability.
The insulation is going to be very good, but be aware there is no stated U value as such because of the hollow outer frame section. It is possible to infill this outer frame if you want to make the best insulation possible, but if a U value is required for any reason then it is best to speak to us and discuss the various options. We can supply doors with tested U values and performance declarations but currently they are too beposke for our online shop process.

The door panel and frame are always fully finished in chosen paint colour or laminate woodgrain finish.

Ordering Sizes
The Carteck side hinged doors are ordered in our site as width first then the height and the sizes are to include the fixing sub frame so also relate to the structural opening size less a fitting tolerance.

The aluminium fixing frame has built in weather seals as well as the rebated edges including the overlapping centre strip to close one leaf against the other with maximum weather protection.

The handle set is stainless steel and has a double throw deadlock with the option to upgrade to a very high 3 point locking system if required.
