Side Hung Garage Doors
Benefits of Side Hung Garage Doors
Handy if you don’t keep the car in the garage but are always nipping in and out for the freezer or the washer.
Hormann have now started producing a side hung door made out of the same material as their sectional doors. This means they are now insulated and very secure and overcome some of the shortcomings of timber and single skin steel side hung doors. The quality of the door’s hinges and locking etc has also taken a quantum leap forward.
In the past side hung doors were replaced by up and over doors because they were laborous if you wanted to put the car in the garage. ( opening one leaf at a time, pegging out, driving in and then closing the doors one by one ) However, it is now possible to add remote control to side hung doors and these work really well.
