Garage doors are often overlooked when it comes to home improvements, yet they represent a tremendous opportunity to upgrade security and add value to any property. If you are looking to purchase roller garage doors or ‘front-door’ style hinged garage doors, then Birmingham-based Mainstream Windows can help you with the right product to suit your particular requirements.
Roller garage doors offer a number of stylish, space-saving and secure solutions for your garage. Available in a wide range of colours, metallic and timber-effect finishes, including attractive woodgrain options, they combine contemporary design with classic aesthetics to complement your home.
A key advantage of this garage door style is that, compared to conventional doors, they save space by retracting into a neat roll. Roller doors maximise the drive-through height of your garage and ensure there is no intrusion into overhead storage space. All are fitted with complete aluminium safety housings as standard. A compact version, which can span an opening up to 3.2 metres wide, is available for garages with severely restricted space above the opening. You can make the most of available parking space too, as vehicles can be parked on the driveway right up to the door.
Operated by remote control, roller garage doors offer the ultimate in convenient ‘drive-up’ access. Powered by reliable motor technology with a built-in safety sensor in the event of any obstruction, they can be operated from up to 50 metres and are fitted with an internal manual override in the event of power failure. No more struggling with heavy doors! As they automatically lock on closing and with no handles or leverage points for would-be intruders, they offer enhanced security too.
Thermal efficiency is another important consideration, particularly for integral garages, as a well-insulated garage door can help to cut energy bills. All roller profiles incorporate polyurethane foam for effective heat and sound insulation, along with integral brush seals and a rubber seal to the bottom rail to prevent dust, leaves or small animals entering the garage.
Side-hung or hinged ‘French Door-style’ upvc doors are another popular choice for garages. This low-threshold style allows for attractive tongue and groove panelling designs, enabling garage doors to be matched with existing windows and doors. Glazed and leaded top lights can be included as a practical design option to let in more natural light.
Whatever your preference and budget, all garage doors from Mainstream Windows are made-to-measure and tailored to client requirements. Every door is made in accordance with BS EN 12453:2001 and comes with full guarantees on manufactured parts and external finish for added peace of mind.
