Oak Garage Doors
– The Facts
Oak is traditionally an incredibly difficult timber species to manufacture garage doors with, because it is extremely heavy and might be very unstable in the varying air moisture content that we have here in the U.K. However Oak garage doors truly are also a beautiful grained timber and required by many people to match present doors, windows along with other oak timber around the exterior house structure.
Why chose an Oak garage door
The weight of oak is the greater of the two challenges as single garage doors contain 3 to 4 times the volume of timber that a front entrance door generally has and to lift it above your head in a one piece up and over panel is clearly going to be a basic safety issue as well as a mechanical challenge without enormous springs and oversized lifting arms. Although it is possible, the sizes are often more restricted than with sectional or round the corner garage door systems.
We can offer Oak garage doors produced using the superb Hormann DF98 chassis system to manufacture a one piece up and over garage door panel in the UK with comprehensive CE compliance. Using various types of oak in varied designs a garage door can be built up to about 4 metres wide maximum and a maximum height of about 2.4 metres.
