Timber Up and Over

Timber up and over garage doors by The Garage Door Centre

There are many standard styles and sizes available from most mainstream manufacturers of timber up and over garage doors and many will also produce purpose made sizes generally up to a maximum of 16 feet wide (4877mm) and 8 feet high (2438mm).

Traditional Timber Up & Over Garage Door

Timber garage doors are available with canopy or retractable operating mechanisms. Most timber up and over doors however will be best supplied with retractable operating gear due to the weight and general requirement for remote control electric automation.

We have seen an enormous increase in the requirement for more bespoke designs over the years driven in the main by a desire to reproduce the garage door in as near to the period detail as possible. This may only be for example a wider timber board size, a specific timber species or a particular glazing detail but all can be achieved for the perfect finish to your home.

We can achieve almost any design that is physically possible with timber including working to CAD drawings and exact requirements for the species and source if available. 
You can of course design and get your own garage door buit in timber using your local joiner but be aware of the necessity for a balanced mechanism and minimum safety requirements, particularly if the door is to be electrically operated.

We can help here too with a range of chassis panels designed specifically to take timber boarding sections in standard or bespoke sizes with fully tested and legally compliant operating gear, locking and fixing sub frame - see the DF98 and N80 open for infill or the superb ET500 door systems.

Would you rather design your own timber door?

If you can't pick out your favourite design or you simply want something unique to your home that no one else will have, you can create your own design. Our experienced sales team are available to help you make the perfect design suitable for your home improvements.

Construction

Timber Garage Door with Pedestrian Access Door

Timber up and over garage doors are generally constructed in 2 different ways - one method uses a steel box section or 'c' channel steel sub frame chassis to which the timber is then fixed and the second method is using only timber and constructing the entire door panel using traditional joinery methods. i.e. mortice and tenon joints, dowels, etc.

The steel sub chassis method offers greater flexibility in sizes and enables the use of heavier hardwoods as the timber 'cladding' does not need to be of a structural size as the overall strength for the door comes from the steel chassis itself and also enables the use of a box section fixing sub frame which offers tighter tolerances and more security when closed.

Sizes

Up and over one piece garage doors are always going to be limited by their weight as they get to the larger sizes. Generally the maximum width for a timber up and over door is 16 feet wide (4877mm) and over that width you need to look at either a timber sectional or timber round the corner door system. The maximum sensible height is about 8 feet (2438mm)

Finishes

Most up and over timber doors are available with a high quality factory applied woodstain finish in a wide range of traditional and modern colours. Doors treated correctly can give many years before you even have to think about a refresh of the stain making a timber door just as easy to maintain as steel or GRP in most cases.

Hormann Timber Up & Over Garage Doors

Whatever the style of your property, traditional or modern architecture, the Hormann Series 2000 styles of timber doors in either panelled or tongued and grooved design, offer you the choice to find a style that will add warmth and character to your home, with or without glazing options.

The main material used for Hormann up and over doors is carefully selected cedarwood, with its finely figured grain and variation in colour. Cedarwood is the ideal timber for resistance to the very varied UK climate.

The Hormann timber door gets its overall strength from the steel box section chassis that the door panel is based upon - the 'open for infill' chassis is the basis of the entire Hormann range of up and over doors.
