GDO Insulated Steel Side Hinged Garage Doors
Solid 40mm thick panels
GDO side hinged garage doors are not only good looking. Although light in use, GDO side hinged garage doors close with a reassuringly solid “clunk”. The double walled 40mm thick steel panel sections filled with a rigid polymer foam combine with aluminium hollow-section profiles to create a strong and rigid garage door panel. Panels are carefully designed to provide excellent strength, rigidity, and resistance to corrosion for long lasting quality all round.
High quality 3D adjustable hinges
The hinges on a GDO side hinged garage door are very neat and discretely colour matched to the door and frame. Over time, side hinged garage door leaves may drop. With traditional garage doors, hinges are fixed with no ability for adjustment resulting in a poor fit over the life of the door. GDO side hinged garage doors’ hinges are adjustable in three dimensions ensuring a perfect fit when new and easy realignment over time, should it be required.
Aluminium strip threshold
The aluminium profile on a GDO side hinged garage doors provides a simple low-profile threshold. The bottom of each door leaf has a simple finned seal that sits on the strip threshold when closed. It’s important to note that GDO side hinged garage doors are not completely hermetically sealed. There will be some points on the garage door where light, drafts, strong directional rain, or water that is allowed to pool at the bottom of the door may find a way in.
Double weather strips and mitred corners
The door frame on GDO side hinged garage doors has a bulb seal to the top and sides and each door leaf also has a seal to the top and sides. These seals create a double seal at the top and side of the door, maximising the ability to reduce draft, water and light ingress.
Each GDO side hinged garage door includes two security keys. These keys add extra layer of security by preventing unauthorised copying. They cannot be cut by anyone other than the issuer of the key - GDO. Whilst the door has no official security rating it’s inherent strength and additional layers of security make it an easy choice over other conventional side hinged doors with poor consideration of these important features.
Friction door stays
No dangling cords are required to pull to release the friction stays on a GDO side hinged garage door. GDO Side Hinged Garage Doors’ stays are very neat and effortless to use. Don’t forget, stays should never be used on windy days or doors left unattended with the stays engaged. The door leaf can act as a sail in even modest winds, resulting in damage to the door and the stay.
Adjustable flush bolt security
The inactive leaf on GDO side hinged garage doors is secured with flush bolts to the top and bottom of the leaf. Each flush bolt has an adjustable plate for greater versatility on the position of the leading edge on the inactive leaf as the seals compress over time keeping the garage door rattle-free!
High-grade stainless-steel handles and lock covers
GDO side hinged garage doors are built to an exacting standard right down to the hardware. Put a GDO garage door beside others and the difference is easily apparent. Top quality lever handle, lock cylinder and rose complete the doors’ stunning good looks and can be kept looking good with simple care.
Convenient internal thumb turn
No poor-quality plastic hardware is used anywhere on a GDO side hinged garage door, right down to the doors internal thumb turn. The internal thumb turn provides a quick and easy way to exit your garage door on foot.
Adjustable latching with security locking
Precise latching and a steel lock keep box is important. To provide added attack resistance, the inactive leaf of a GDO side hinged garage door incorporates a stainless-steel strike plate and an adjustable latch plate. Easy to adjust, your garage door can be kept securely locked and rattle free for its lifetime.
GDO side hinged garage doors are open-out by design and are not available open-in.
Wind-out lug frame setting
