The side hinged doors are produced from sheet steel that is pressed into shape and are usually made up of steel sections spot welded or riveted together.
  • Timber doors are available in an excellent selection of designs and can be supplied base coated for your choice of finish, or fully finished in a selection of wood-stain colours. Timber doors are usually made from cedar wood, which is a very stable and workable timber, highly resilient to wet and dry rot. Nowadays, we can also offer timber doors made from the increasingly popular Accoya wood which offers fantastic stability and is almost maintenance free, along with Idigbo hardwood which is a beautiful african hardwood and is similar in appearance to Oak.
