Side Hinged Garage Doors

Side Hinged Garage Doors

Although garage door mechanisms are getting more advanced with the impact of technology, side hinged doors for traditionally styled garages are still a common choice.
The main mechanism that enables the opening and closing of side-hinged doors is a pair of panels hinged to the side in a subframe and this has not been impacted by technological advancements. Nevertheless, they are one of the most demanded and popular garage doors on the market due to the advantages they offer.

Why Choose a Side Hinged Garage Door?

Just like every other type of garage door available, the side hinged door has its own advantages. Side hinged doors offer you loads of benefits that suit your needs.

Wide range of materials to choose from
