Oak Garage Doors

Oak is traditionally a very difficult timber species to manufacture garage doors with as it is extremely heavy and can be very unstable in the varying air moisture content that we have here in the U.K. However it is also a beautiful grained timber and required by many people to match existing doors, windows and other oak timber around the external house structure.Oak garage doors construction

The weight of oak is the larger of the two problems as single garage doors contain 3 to 4 times the volume of timber that a front entrance door generally has and to lift it above your head in a one piece up and over panel is clearly going to be a safety issue as well as a mechanical challenge without enormous springs and oversized lifting arms. Although it is possible, the sizes are generally more restricted than with sectional or round the corner garage door systems..

We can however offer Oak garage doorsOak garage doors produced using the superb DF98 or the Hormann ET500 steel chassis system to manufacture a one piece up and over garage door panel in the UK with full CE compliance as well as complete reassurance of continued reliable use. Using various types of oak in varied designs a garage door can be produced up to about 5 metres wide maximum and a maximum height of about 2.4 metres.

The designs in the oak door range can recreate very traditional styles and are offered in a clear base coat finish or limited woodstains to enhance the natural beauty of the Oak graining and the warmth of the oak colour.

The oak garage doors that are available are built using simple joinery methods combined with elements from modern up and over garage door construction offering the very latest fully retractable operating gear fully compliant with the latest CE regulations.
