Up and over doors are our most popular doors, and for good reason. Easy to use and great value for money, they need very little maintenance and provide both clean looks and excellent practicality.

However, their simplicity and value doesn’t mean you’ll be compromising on quality. They’re designed to be durable and easy-to-maintain, and are crafted from quality materials including timber, steel and composite. They also come in a vast range of colours and finishes.

All our doors meet the approved UK industry safety and quality standards.


Up and over doors are known as being ‘no-nonsense’, in that they have a simple operating mechanism and are easy to look after. They have a spring-loaded mechanism that helps support the weight of the door as you push it up. Canopy versions provide the optimal drive-through width, however, if you have a larger space you might want to choose a retractable design that’s electronically operated.

Patterns and Surfaces

One of the great things about up and over doors is their sheer versatility. With a wide range of materials, patterns and finishes to choose from, you can easily match your garage door to your home exterior. Pick from durable and elegant timber frames for a traditional finish, or opt for low maintenance and contemporary ABS*, GRP** or steel.

*Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a durable thermoplastic similar to uPVC.
** Glass Reinforced Polyester is a resin strengthened with glass fibre.
