Some customers favour a 70mm x 70mm woodstained softwood or hardwood goalpost fixing frame to anchor the door and mechanism to the brickwork opening, as a sympathetically stained frame can compliment the woodgrain finish of the door and make it look even more like real timber. A White or Brown steel fixing frame can be purchased if preferred. All steel frames come pre-fitted to the door with pre-installed counterbalance mechanism on doors up to 10ft (3048mm) wide.
- On doors over 10ft wide (3048mm) frames are supplied as a 3-piece knock down kit for easy assembly on site.
