Carteck Insulated Side Hinged

Carteck Side-hinged Garage Doors

There are many reasons why one may install an insulated garage door, however a side-hinged door in particular would offer you the very best in convenience if you use your garage as a workshop office, gym, or other function. Side-hinged doors allow you to open and close only one door leaf, whilst when it is closed it maintains excellent insulation and security levels. The doors are sealed around the sides and the top, with the integral sub frame used.

Click for Side Hinged Door Design InspirationFor the very best in panel strength, security and insulation, look no further than the superb insulated, steel, side-hinged garage door range from market-leaders Carteck (known as Teckentrup in Germany).

Carteck do not tend to be known for hinged doors, but more for their fantastic sectional garage door range; the door panels that are used for their side hinged doors derive from the insulated, double skinned steels panels of the sectional garage doors. In Germany the Teckentrup manufacturing plant produce many different types of side hinged doors and the Carteck side hinged range has been developed specifically for the UK garage market.

Carteck make superb made to order side hinged doors, that contain high levels of security and insulation. Alongside this, you can design your own door.

Why Insulated Side Hinged?

Most people who purchase a side-hinged garage door do so because they use their garage for other purposes other than storing their vehicle. For instance, their garage may be a workshop, games room, gym, office or perhaps a simple storage areas for bikes or household items. As access to these items may be frequent, often with the garage’s direct access to the main home through an internal door, security is a very important factor to consider, as well as the benefits of high levels of insulation. 

Design Choices

The Carteck side hinged doors are available in 8 different panel designs, each design having options available for a woodgrain embossed surface, stucco or micrograin surface finish for the finer details of visual appearance.

All designs can have a 50/50 or 1/3rd and 2/3rd option to offer a smaller pedestrian door for easier access; the only one that cannot be offered is the Georgian design with the taller, vertical panels, as the design is restrictive.

Solid 40mm Thick Panels

Carteck 40mm Side Hinged Garage Door PanelThe Carteck side hinged doors are constructed from 40mm thick, interlocking foam-filled galvanised steel panels that provide excellent sound reduction and incredible strength.

The mitred door leaf and door frame are finished in a matching finish from white, Trend and RAL colours, as well as woodgrain effect laminate finishes. The door panels are always RAL 9002 off white to the inside face for maximum light enhancement and practical purposes.

The inside face of the door panels are also very easy to keep clean and have no unsightly bracing bars and locking mechanisms unlike single skin steel and timber constructed door panels.


Fixing Frame

All Carteck side hinged doors are factory fitted with a fully finished aluminium fixing sub frame to make installation easy and precise, on site only, requiring the door and frame to be positioned into place, squared and secured.

The doors are all made to order, ensuring a perfect fit and to maximise the width and height of your garage opening.

The frame is finished in the same colour as the door panel colour chose,n and in the case of the laminate woodgrain panels, a complimentary RAL colour is used for the framework.
