A: All the remote control electric doors we sell are fully compliant with all the latest regulations and are CE marked. Many roller garage doors are sold on the internet which are not compliant with regulations and cannot meet the machinery directive or CE standard as they only use an infra red beam for safety and not a leading edge safety detection sensor.Please make sure you know exactly what you are buying when it comes to an electric garage door as they can be very dangerous if not specified and installed correctly and are viewed as a 'machine' in general terms. A machine that can be operated by remote control is obviously even more dangerous if the correct safety systems are in place and working correctly.

Too many doors are sold still without the basic safety mechanisms included to comply with UK regulations.

Yes, we have many trade account customers and if you buy doors in quantity we can potentially offer further savings on most of the products. Simply fill in our 'Trade Application form' and tell us a bit about what you want to purchase and the quantities and we will get back to you with an offer.

Deliveries are always affected around bank holidays and Christmas/New Year as many products come from German factories if they are made to order particularly.

A: We take a simple view on damaged doors - if it is bad enough for us to completely reject we will destroy the door - so if they are damaged it is never that bad. A good clean or restain on timber doors and they will usually look as good as new, small scratches on steel doors can be T cut using a car paintwork system. GRP doors with scratches can be touched up with shoe polish appropriate to the shade of door colour. A lot of the doors have simply been in stock for a longer period of time than usual because they are odd sizes or colours but will always clean up perfectly ok.

Of course many of the clearance doors are brand new and will be identified as such in the description.

If you are nervous or unsure about any of the doors then call us and we can get more images if the website does not have sufficient images showing.

Most of the up and over and side hinged garage doors available are very easy to install as they are delivered with nearly all the operating mechanisms already factory fitted along with the optional steel fixing sub frame when ordered. The door and frame literally has to be offered into the opening and secured with several fixings and maybe the lock cylinder inserting and securing. Even the spring tensions on the up and over doors are factory adjusted when delivered. The roller shutter and sectional doors we sell online do generally take longer as there are many more moving parts but we do make sure we only sell doors that generally have pre-drilled components for easy assembly. Help is always at hand with ourselves and technical assistance from experienced staff.
The doors sold on the site are amongst the best you can buy in the UK and we make sure the doors are always delivered with all the necessary equipment apart from actual fixings which you need to specify and source yourself depending on the garage structure you are installing to.
