Why Insulated Side-Hinged?

The conveniences of easy pedestrian access, privacy and space maximization inside the garage have been added to by Carteck in their insulated side hung door developed specially for the UK market. Carteck Teckentrupp Germany make twin-walled, steel, 40mm thick insulated panels which form the basis for the product.
