Why choose a Side Hung Garage Door?

We have noticed that a lot of people visiting our website are interested in side hung garage doors so we thought we would bring you a guide to these wonderfully versatile doors.

Side hung garage doors offer solutions to so many problems and provide opportunities not possible with other types of garage door. They are simple in operation and easy to maintain over the years with minimal moving mechanical parts.

Due to the nature of side hung garage doors, people are now looking at this more and more as a solution or replacement. Side hinged doors are great for busy lifestyles where the garage is NOT being used for a vehicle and frequent access is required. Most of us are now looking to the garage as further storage or possible habitable spaces and as such are not used for the storage of cars. Garages nowadays often home freezers or laundry facilities as well as workshop, gym or are used as a general store room.

Traditional side hinged doors give you easy access to your garage without having to open a complete door panel up offering frequent easy access to your garage with minimal effort. Available in a wide variety of designs, meterials and finishes, sinde hinged garage doors offer a great way to add personality to your home.

The side hinged garage door set can be produced with either 50/50 split opening or a 1/3 and 2/3 opening in most designs. The 1/3rd and 2/3rd opening offers the best solution to frequent pedestrian access meaning only the smaller door leaf is opened every time access is required.

If there is a lack of headroom in your garage the side hinged garage door provides the perfect solution. Side hinged doors are a blessing for those whose garages are decked out internally with shelves or cupboards or garages that house intrusive gas/electric meters or pipework. The lack of tracks or panels protruding into the garage means that you have no worries about fouling door operating gear. You can utilise all of the drive through height and width (providing the doors can open to 90°). The lack of lifting gear also means that the side hinged garage door is wonderfully maintenance free apart from treatment of the timber. No springs, cones or cables to maintain or replace when they have worn out.

Times have changed in the automatic gate industry. Not so many years ago remote control automatic gates were considered nothing but a luxury item, affordable by only the wealthiest and suitable only for mansion type properties. Not so anymore!

However, having an automatic gate system installed is quite a major investment and there are many questions that should be asked before proceeding. If you are considering having an automatic gate system installed we suggest reading our guide found by clicking on the attached link.

Gates are an invaluable asset to any property, yet the impracticalities of a manual gate often prevent people from investing in one. A manual gate can hinder its continued use, as with the exertion of opening and closing every single time you want to leave or enter, you may find that the gates stay permanently open. This eradicates the whole process of the gate increasing your security.

Automated gates are a great way to secure your home whilst also bringing style and convenience to your property. Not only do they make your home more secure but they also add a level of grandeur and style to your home. Furthermore, they make entry to your property easier – you don’t have to leave your car in order to open the gates. Similarly, they can be opened remotely from inside your property to allow someone else entry.

 With the sun shining and summer well and truly in full swing now, chances are you have been out in the garden enjoying the fine weather we have been experiencing recently. If you want to provide solar shading while you enjoy your garden, our range of awnings can help to block out harmful UV rays and protect you and your family. Modern awning systems are available in a wide variety of finishes and styles and now more than ever have become an extension to a family home.

Awnings are available in manual or electric operation. Manual awning systems can be supplied with operation via detachable rod and crank. Whilst this is suitable for the majority of awnings, we would suggest that an electric powered awning would be better suited to larger awnings, allowing everyone the ability to operate them.

Electric is the most popular way of operating  awnings. Electric awnings come with handheld remote controls, allowing you to control your awning from just about anywhere in your home or garden.

Here at Chapel Doors we cover the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Regions. If you're looking to have an awning installed and would like to arrange a free site survey and comprehensive quotation for your awning installation, why not get in touch with us at Chapel Doors today.

Considerations when choosing a new Garage Door

When it comes to garage doors, the options are vast. With the increasing value motor fuelling the requirement for higher specification and more secure garage doors, their is no better time to have a new garage door installed. It is only natural that home owners have come to rely on increasingly high tech products to protect their investments at home, and garage doors are no exception, especially if you have an attached garage leading through to your main house. Garage Doors now come in a multitude of varying designs, sizes and intricate mechanisms, making them far more desirable and the perfect finish to your home.

For most people the first consideration in the process of buying is the cost. Due the the versatility of Garage Doors, prices vary depending on the material, type, operating mechanism and the size. Timber doors are generally higher priced compared with steel or fibreglass (GRP) garage doors. However, those who require the look of wood but maybe cannot afford a timber door can utilise aluminium or steel doors with laminate finishes recreating very realistic wood effects.

Insulation, glazing, factory finishes, special sizes and other such added extras all contribute towards increasing the price of a Garage Door so you need to consider your options carefully. Our trained team of experts can help you with your options so you get the best door for your money. As we operate to a high level, we only install the very best Garage Doors so that you can be use of safe operation as well as longevity.

Materials generally used in the construction of Garage Doors are steel, timber, aluminium, PVC and GRP. With timber garage doors their is the potential for huge variation in price with different types of timber. It’s worth considering the materials you want in your Garage Door as these will affect the overall performance of your Garage Door. A steel garage door would be deemed as the strongest option. Sectional Doors can be supplied in double skin panels up to 45mm thick with incredible strength and insulation properties. Aluminium is generally only used for roller and sectional doors. GRP is also very versatile and is used extensively now for most mechanisms as it does possess great strength.

Sometimes the material you need is dictated by your house exterior, local planning regulations or maybe even location. For instance  if you live in a coastal area it would not be a good idea generally to use a steel Garage Door that is prone to corrosion, especially when constantly exposed to saltwater. A GRP (fibreglass) garage door will be a better option.
If you prefer the look of timber but do not have the time or desire to maintain such a Garage Door then you can consider a steel up and over or Sectional Door with a laminate woodgrain finish, now available in most colours required.

Most people will choose a Garage Door by design and size. We recommend considering the type of operation in your garage design. The operating mechanism that your garage door is based upon (sectional, roller, canopy, side-hinged, etc) depends a lot on the areas inside and outside your garage. If you have a narrow garage and have limited space near the entrance, your best option would be a Roller Door as opposed to an ‘up and over’ one piece door. If your garage has a low ceiling, you might want to consider a side-hinged door rather than a sectional one, since the latter requires a bit more headroom. Side hinged garage doors have enormous benefits for regularly used garages as you only open one side to enter and exit, like a normal door.

So how secure is the garage door? This is very much dependent on how well the door is installed and the materials used in the construction of the door. Here at Chapel Doors we only use reputable manufacturers and the highest quality parts so you can be assured that your door is as safe as can be.

A common mistake is to fit a budget electric door opener to a garage door forgetting that in doing so you usually remove the manual locking system and then in basic form rely upon the electric operator towing fixture to hold the door secure. Whilst this may be reasonably OK adding certain latching devices can bring the door up to much higher levels of security. Check with the manufacturer or specialist what can be done if you need security.
Reliability & Maintenance
 
This final consideration for some people actually convinces them to buy or not to buy a garage door. Nowadays many of us are very busy and have little time or enthusiasm left to maintain major household implements, even on weekends. Well here is a revelation – most modern garage doors don’t really require huge amounts of maintenance, even timber doors properly treated before or on installation can have a protection that requires just cleaning (like most items) to maintain a long lasting beautiful panel finish. GRP garage doors and Upvc doors are virtually maintenance free, again, just keep clean. High quality steel up and over, side hinged and sectional doors are all galvanised and painted using modern techniques and paints that last a very long time.

Mechanisms may require a little attention occasionally, especially if the door is used very frequently or you live near the coast where the corrosive effects of salt water may well cause issues if not checked. Again higher quality garage door mechanisms tend to have components that are galvanised or zinc plated to maximise the life span. Regular oiling, regular cleaning and regular checks on moving parts will of course be recommended just like it is with your car. A remote control garage door is considered a ‘machine’ in legal terms so again it is obvious that some maintenance may be required. Here at Chapel Doors we provide servicing and maintenance options for you so you can rest assured your Garage Door will be in tip top health.

We have recently posted images of awnings that work on folding arm mechanisms but so thought we would share with you an installation of folding arm awnings done recently in a residential home.

Easy and simple to use these type of awnings are different from the more common folding arm for patio use. Drop arm awnings help to shade the sun from your home. These are Manual Dutch Awnings finished in Beach TexGuard Fabric with a wavy valance and we rethink you will agree they look great. Why not add a touch of class and personality to your home with an awning from Chapel Doors. You can contact us on:
