Life-like Wood Effect

Finishes to complement existing uPVC windows and entrance doors

Winchester Standard Ribbed

Our wood effect doors definitely look the part - characterful woodgraining brings these designs to life.

Please note: Golden Oak & Winchester are laminate finishes.
Night Oak & Rosewood have a painted finish.

Rich woodtones

Our wide grain wood effect finishes are grained to give a much more natural look than close grain finishes. See right a close up of a standard ribbed door panel finished in Winchester.

Colour Matching

For colour matching to other finishes such as window frames, always request a sample. Although wood effects complement existing uPVC windows, they do not match precisely.

Better scratch resistance & UV stability

Night Oak & Rosewood have a paint finished surface instead of the traditional surface bonded film. They outperform films for scratch resistance. The paint finish is also more UV stable over time, retaining colour for longer and less prone to the finish becoming “milky” in strong sunlight.

A note about colour:

Direct Sunlight
Where doors are exposed to direct sunlight, dark colours should be avoided.

How will my side hinged garage door’s colour be affected by UV exposure and are dark colours suitable for garages with a sunny aspect?
See the ‘Colours’ section of our Honesty Page!

RAL References
RAL references for colours are provided as a guide only to the nearest similar RAL colour. Colours will not match to other RAL finishes due to different coating processes, gloss levels, substrates and textures. Similarly, special RAL, BS, wood effects or other colours will not be a precise match.

Colour Accuracy
Colours shown are limited in accuracy by the viewing screen - samples should always be requested.

Wood Design
Golden Oak & Winchester are laminate finishes. Night Oak & Rosewood have a painted finish.

Mitred Frames
The mitred door leaf frame and door frame are finished in a matching smooth finish for white, Trend (including Anthracite Textured) and RAL coloured doors. For these Trend colours, a complimentary flat colour is used: Ice Crystal Grey Aluminium (RAL9007), TT9016 Bling White (RAL 9016), Golden Oak (RAL8003), Rosewood (RAL8016) and Night Oak (RAL8014), Winchester (RAL8001) wood design finishes.

Colour Matching To Other Finishes

If you are matching to other finishes such as window frames, always request a sample, particularly for wood effects such as rosewood, golden oak, night oak or Winchester.

Keeping your door looking good and properly maintained:

Cleaning On Installation
After the installation has been completed, clean and dry the door thoroughly inside and out with warm soapy water to remove any grease, dust and metal fragments from the door (these will discolour the door finish if left on the door).

The door should be washed with a car shampoo or similar, every two months, to prevent the build up of dirt, salt, grit and other corrosive substances.

If the door is in an area prone to coastal corrosion from airborne salts, the door should be cleaned monthly.

I live in a coastal area, what does that mean for my side hinged garage door?
See the ‘Coastal locations’ section of our Honesty Page!

Furthermore, cleaning operating gear with a cloth soaked in a light oil will help to protect your door from corrosion – it must be accepted that salt air is very aggressive and extra care is required.

No caustic, abrasive or corrosive chemicals and substances, flood water, water runoff, or runoff from lead, copper or galvanic metal flashing should be allowed to come into contact with the door.

Ash, cement, dust, animal waste, or foreign substances should be removed immediately. Failure to ensure the door is cleaned and maintained as described will invalidate the doors’ warranty.

How can cleaning my door prolong its life?
For a more in-depth look at cleaning your side hinged garage door, see the ‘Cleaning’ section of our Honesty Page!

Doors must be maintained as per the supplied Installation, Operating and Maintenance Manual by a Garage Door Specialist.

Failure to carry out the required maintenance at the advised interval will invalidate the warranty.
