Wessex

Wessex LogoWessex Garage Doors top class producers of high quality GRP doors. Based in Dorset ,UK, Wessex has been trading since 1974 setting out to provide a range of maintenance free door panels in both a high gloss white finish and a faithful reproduction of real timber that would be the pinnacle in garage door design.

Wessex are the premier GRP garage door manufacturing company in Europe and has the largest range of GRP door styles and finishes available anywhere.

They also offer a range of excellent tried and tested door lifting gear systems to complement their door panels.

All Wessex door products are CEN compliant and conform to European quality standard EN 13241-1 which encompasses stringent safety and performance requirements for the construction and operation of garage door.

The corrosive effects of salt laden air can be easily seen in rusting gates, door hinges and garage doors. GRP eliminates corrosion and the benefits inland are just as convincing – minimal maintenance.

GRP is the material of choice for the sailing industry – look how many GRP yachts are out there. Wessex uses the finest softwood timber masters to create moulds with enhanced grain and detailing that no exterior grade timber can match. The hand applied antiquing completes the transformation into a door that looks just like wood but with the added benefit of minimal maintenance.

The chassis is supplied in white, brown or black dependent on the door colour and frames are available to match. Doors are available in two build types:

3 Crown range– Wessex standard build specification. Three Crown doors are available in standard and made to measure sizes and feature a corrosion protected steel chassis to provide added strength and rigidity. They are available with canopy or retractable gear and window options where applicable.

4 Crown Range – On Four Crown doors the back of the door panel is covered with a “flowcoat” of resin for increased rigidity and a neat interior finish in light reflecting white. They are available with canopy or retractable gear and window options where applicable.
