Insulated side hinged garage doors are a traditional style of garage door that has been improved over the last decade. They swing open from a hinged frame on the side, much like a regular door. 

Unlike the more common overhead garage doors, these doors open outwards or inwards, offering a convenient and classic appearance. The addition of insulation makes our side hinged garage doors a superior choice for maintaining temperature control and energy efficiency.

Your Guide To Bespoke Side Hinged Garage Doors

Consider Your Climate

If you live in an area with extreme temperatures, opt for doors with higher insulation ratings. Look for doors with a low U-value, which indicates better insulation performance. A U-value of about 1.6W/m2K is a standard suitable for front doors.

Match Your Home’s Aesthetic

Professional Installation

To ensure optimal performance and longevity, have your side hinged garage doors installed by a professional.

Our most frequently requested non-insulated side hinged garage door is a Georgian style door leaf. This is a classic look for garage doors and can be recognised be its squares on the front. This style is also available in up and over garage doors as well as sectional garage doors.

Popular due to the space saving facility inside the garage as the doors open outwards into the driveway, not into the garage like most garage doors. Highly customisable options make these doors a sure bet if you’re wanting practicality as well as style.

Like all our other types of garage doors, these come in standard sizes, but also purpose made sizes to account for all types of garage openings and scenarios.
