- Garage doors
I know there are a few threads on here, but they are a bit older and I’m wondering if materials have moved on?
I need to replace a broken up and over, what would be best from a security point of view?
I know it adds a point of weakness but I don’t want electric opening, so manual options only please. The front door is the only point of access so bolts on the inside are also out. I don’t have any real height restrictions and the garage is long enough that I don’t necessarily need to park right up to the door. I think side opening is also out as there’s a slope to the drive.
I’m not massively flush at the moment, so spending several thousand is out of the question. I was thinking around 1-1.5k max. Anything nearer to the lower end of that would be perfect.Posted 2 months agoz1ppyMember
I went for a two door system, using 3 panels, with a main door in the middle section. As I didn’t need to show the entire contents of my garage every time I pop into it or dragged a bike out. The door supplier was happy to upgrade/add locks as per your requirments.
For info, I can see your not local (and I used a fitter who was cheaper).. http://www.bgid.co.uk/index.php?id=15Posted 2 months ago
Thanks for the suggestions so far, the bikes will be hidden from view as they will be in an Asgard or similar so not too concerned about the contents being seen by passers by. It’s also on a private road with very little footfall.
Obviously the downside to that is it’s fairly secluded so if someone wanted to get in, they might have a bit of time before anyone heard etc.
Google pacri bolts
would the bolts locate into the floor or the side of the frame? If the floor couldn’t they just be prised up with a lever?Posted 2 months agocbSubscriber
I’m having an electric roller door but one of the companies that came to quote reckoned new style up and overs are so much more secure than the rubbish i have. He reckoned there were now 4 locking points and he couldn’t break into one…and he could break into anything guv…Posted 2 months ago
Think it was either 900 fitted or 1100.simon_gSubscriber
Been looking at these for mine: https://www.lathamssteeldoors.co.uk/steel-security-doors/double-steel-door/
Don’t keep a car in there so easier to just open a single door for day to day stuff, but can open both for getting big things in and out.Posted 2 months ago
