DOOR MATERIALS

Galvanised steel doors are a robust and long-lasting choice. Pick from laminated wood effect or fully-finished painted options.

For a durable and weatherproof choice, lightweight GRP doors come in pristine high-gloss white or lifelike timber-grain effect.

White ABS provides a virtually maintenance-free finish, and is a great match for uPVC doors and windows.

Our stunning and sustainably sourced timber doors come base-coat stained and can be finished to a colour of your choice.

For a fully insulated solution perfect for workspaces, opt for a Thermaglide Roller door in lightweight aluminium. These super-strong doors come in a wide range of finishes and sizes.

 

COLOURS

There’s more to garage doors than functionality. They make up a big part of your home’s appearance, so choosing the right colour is important too.

Depending on the type of doors you choose, you can have them pre-coloured, or left prepared for you to paint yourself.

White is a traditionally clean and bright option, and pairs perfectly with modern homes that have uPVC windows and doors.

You can inject a little more personality in your home exterior by picking a bolder colour. Black is a popular choice and creates an elegant finish, while red and green doors have a traditional feel.

Classic wooden tones are ideal for brick-built homes.

gear operation

Cardale offer ranges of doors operating in several different ways. Depending on your preference and the physical characteristics of your garage, some types of operation may be more suitable for you than others:

Canopy
Up and over canopy doors are the most popular style of lifting gear in the UK with a vast range of door styles to suit. Ideally matched to where there is limited headroom for tracks.

Retractable
An alternative lifting gear for use with up and over doors. Horizontal Tracks are attached to the top of the door frame to guide the door open, providing an exceptionally smooth opening and closing action, which is ideal for electric operation.

Steel Line
Vertical opening allows ‘park-right-up’ convenience, whilst the extension or torsion spring operation gives a super smooth mechanism. Enclosed moving parts and push away joints to the panels make for finger safe operation.

Thermaglide 77
Roller doors travel vertically, forming a compact coil above the opening, meaning minimum space requirements both inside and out. Slimmed down versions requiring even less headroom are available for both the Thermaglide and Steel-line range.

Thermaglide 55
Roller doors travel vertically, forming a compact coil above the opening, meaning minimum space requirements both inside and out. Slimmed down versions requiring even less headroom are available for both the Thermaglide and Steel-line range.

Side Hinged
Popular ‘traditional’ operation and ideal if there are obstructions within the garage. Excellent security and very durable construction ensure a long trouble-free service and automation is available as an option.
