Side Hinged Garage Doors – The Benefits

side hinged garage door

We know how great side hinged garage doors are.

They are the perfect choice for every homeowner that wants to get into their garage quickly and easily, without showing all of your belongings to anyone passing by.

However, many people still don’t realise the full extent of the benefits they can provide. Here are six reasons that you should consider investing in a side-hinged garage door for your home.

1. Side hinged garage doors are better for your back

Back pain is very common and affects four out of five people at some point in their lives. It’s not usually a serious problem and there are various things that you can do to ease the problem like lifting objects correctly and exercising regularly.

The great thing about these doors is that they require no heavy lifting, so they are much healthier for your back. This makes them perfect for homeowners with regular back problems!

2. They’re aesthetically-pleasing

Thanks to 21st-century materials and technology, there is a great diversity of designs to choose from.

Whether you want a side hinged door in a Golden Oak wood grain, or a Magnelis® steel powder-coated door in Ruby Red, you can get a vast range of beautiful designs in a variety of styles and colours that will complement the rest of your house’s exterior. Want a contrasting coloured frame? No problem!

Why settle for a standard white coloured garage door when you can get one in Moss Green, Rosewood Laminate or Jet Black?

3. Provide extra security

If you are frequently accessing your garage for gym equipment or workshop tools, this type of garage door can be extremely useful because you don’t have to constantly fully open the entire door.

You can choose the option of a Euro lock with steel bars for superior locking systems that give peace of mind in terms of protection, as well as ease of access.

4. Easy Pedestrian Access

The last thing any homeowner needs is to be moving the car every time they need to get to the lawnmower or the children’s bikes. A side hung garage door allows you to quickly get your toolkit or garden furniture without opening both doors.

5. Improved privacy

Many garage doors, unfortunately, put your entire garage belongings on full-frontal display when they are opened. This may not sound like a big deal but it is important when you are storing valuable assets in the garage.

6. Made to measure side hinged garage doors

Whereas with most garage doors you are limited to the size, colour and feature options, Select’s side-hinged doors enable you to create a bespoke piece that fits your exact, individual requirements. This is extremely helpful when your garage is an unusual size or you simply want the maximum opening to drive through.

What’s more, you can choose whether you want the doors to part in the middle as a centre split, or to the left or right.

So now you know how great side hinged garage doors are. Fundamentally, they are ideal for extra privacy as well as additional security for your home.
