Wessex Garage Doors are top-class producers of high quality GRP doors. Based in Dorset, UK, Wessex have 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.

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 doors.

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.

Wessex Side Hinged

The Wessex side hinged door is a traditional style door bought right up to date with modern materials and hardware. No tired, sagging door leaves and hinges. Just reliable, day in, day out operation. All doors are available in Classic or Premier Build qualities. Both provide excellent strength and dependable security.
