Door Construction

One piece garage doors

Up and over doors are the most widely fitted doors in the UK and are at their finest here in the Wessex range. The range of styles is the most diverse and attractive available anywhere!

Wessex up and over doors are built onto a strong, corrosion protected steel chassis that provides a protective “picture frame” edge all around the door panel. The chassis is supplied in white, brown or black dependent on door colour and frames are available to match). Doors are available in two build types:

Chassis Colour

White doors will come on a white chassis, ebony woodgrain doors on black chassis and all other woodgrain colours on brown chassis. Red, Green and Blue colours and Coastal colours on a white or black chassis.

Inside face of the door (retractable gear shown)

Single door canopy gear combines compactness with simplicity. Retractable gear offers smoother operation with lower maintenance and is ideal for electric operators.

Doors over 8'0" (2438mm) wide and over 7'0" (2134mm) high are only supplied on retractable gear.

Chassis corner details in each of the colour options.

Up and over doors are available in a choice of canopy or retractable lifting gear. Canopy lifting gear is available for single doors, whilst retractable gear is suitable for all single and double doors.

The further option of a frame for ease of fitting provides a complete ‘low maintenance’ solution.
