Side Hung Garage Doors

Side-hinged (or as they can be known, Side-Hung) garage doors open in the conventional way with butt hinges attached to the door frame on either side – decorative strap hinges can also be used either for function or simply for aesthetic purposes.

Often considered to match the traditional glazed look associated with 1930s properties they are experiencing a comeback in recent years with new modern and insulated doors available constructed using sectional door panels.

Requiring the least internal space of any garage door they suit those who need every inch of space. Available in steel, timber or GRP they come in a diverse range of styles and finishes to suit all tastes with or without windows. Offered in a 50:50 or 1/3:2/3 configuration, side hinged garage doors suit a range of uses.
Very secure as standard, they can be further upgraded to suit individual requirements. Please be advised that if your drive slopes up away from the door opening, then it is likely that this door type is not suitable!

Key Features

Hover over the numbers on the image below for the key features of Side Hinged Garage Doors
side hinged garage doors


With multi-point locking available, side-hinged doors, particularly insulated doors, can be amongst the most secure options

Weatherproofing & Insulation

With excellent weatherproofing as standard, this can be further enhanced with insulated doors available in a huge range of styles

Space Saving

With no projection into the garage, they can allow the maximum use of internal space

Narrow Frame

Side-hinged doors typically have a narrow frame allowing them to fit in tighter gaps than some other doors

Door Stays

Optional door stays will hold the door in position when the door is open to prevent unwanted closure such as in high winds


Side hinged doors are available in a huge range of styles from the traditional to the very modern, in different materials, with or without windows and in different finishes

Additional Information:


For the most reliable doors, single-skin steel or insulated steel doors offer the least maintenance of any door type by virtue of their very simple hinged mechanism. For a modern look, or even for the 1930s look without the maintenance of timber, coupled with excellent security and weatherproofing, these are the doors to go for.

Colours and Designs

You can specify steel side hinged garage doors in a variety of colours, finishes, vertical, solid or ribbed designs and with added windows and matching side doors.


For those in search of the perfect aesthetic twinned with strong functionality, wooden side-hinged doors are a great choice. Available either stained in a tone of your choice or fully finished in a colour of your choice, as they are made by hand by craftsman there is not limit to the styles available. Alternatively, Garador’s steel chassis coupled with wooden infill gives the best of both worlds – the beauty of timber and the strength and low maintenance of a steel frame and chassis.

We can advise on many options to enahnce security, design and type of frame or threshold.

Stephen Buckingham
From the initial quotation to the actual installation, Up&Over Doors have been a very professional company to deal with. Their communication is excellent, even phoning me the day before to check that everything was okay for the installation to go ahead. The installers were friendly and chatty and left my home in a clean and tidy condition. If you’re after a new garage door, I would definitely recommend this company.
Graham Smith
Every one I had contact with was helpful and friendly. the men who installed the door did a fantastic job very very pleased. These guys were not electricians so a power socket was supplied.
Best customer service i ever come across.
Greg Markham
Really professional, came to site provided a couple of options and walked me through each. Once agreed, the order process was simple, the team arrived as agreed and delivered to their agreed promises. Highly delighted with the install and the end result, got exactly what we needed, all for a good value cost. Would absolutely recommend for any garage door work.

This family run company excels at the simple things that means they provide great customer service. They listen to their customers and communicate well. They look to see what they can do, rather than what they cannot do. So much more positive than another garage door company I dealt with some years ago. The engineers that came from Up & Over Doors Ltd were brilliant and dedicated. They stayed well beyond their usual finishing time to complete the job and this for me proved their dedication to great customer service. A special mention for Ashley, Jakub and Scott.
