A) Oak garage doors: the Woodrite Monmouth range.

Oak is a beautiful timber but not without its problems…mainly instability over wide spans which is clearly important when considering purchasing an oak garage door. Garage door manufacturer Woodrite have spent years developing and testing their Monmouth range and have arrived at stable and attractive oak garage doors at affordable prices.

The Woodrite Monmouth door is constructed using solid European Oak for the door chassis framing and matching oak faced plywood for the panels. Plywood is used because it is stable strong and light, all the things which oak is not.

Numerous manufacturers have tried and failed to successfully make solid oak garage doors. These are a few of the tried and tested options available.

The styles shown are available from 2134 mm to 4877 mm in width, and from 1981 mm to 2438 mm in height. All come with heavy duty retractable lifting gear and any of them can become an automatic remote controlled oak garage door by purchasing one of our automation kits.

The doors come fully finished as standard in a choice of 3 authentic oak finishes.

B) Idigbo garage doors: - the Woodrite Warwick range

Idigbo is a tropical hardwood that has the same colour and similar grain to oak. Developed and tested over many years by Woodrite, the stability of idigbo and its lightness in weight are the properties which make it suitable to make hardwood garage doors which look like oak. With numerous planked or panelled designs available, this is a good alternative to solid oak doors.

Although finely crafted by experienced and qualified craftsmen, we discount these doors heavily to much more palatable prices. The idigbo doors are available as up and over doors (manual or electric) or as side hinged (manual or electric), Idigbo frames also available and fully finished in the same three colours as for the oak doors above.

C) Hormann Open for Infil (OFI) door chassis.

This is a popular option for customers who want to create their own bespoke design of garage door and keep the price down. N.B. when adding your own planks to the UK version of the OFI chassis adherence to the weight guide lines must be kept.

Infill weight on single doors up to 8’0” wide is between 6 to 10 kg per m2.

Infill weight on double doors over 8’0” wide is between 6 to 10 kg per m2.

Much more expensive than the UK version but made to a much higher specification, the Hormann DF98 doors and sectional ALR doors can be purchased, providing a rare opportunity to create an oak sectional garage door.

D) Using lifting gear mechanism and automation kit with your joiner-made Oak panels

Heavy duty up and over lifting gear to counterbalance your oak garage door panel.

Some customers have a door panel made to their own specification, sizes, species of timber, finish or design and purchase a lifting gear kit from us to make their own bespoke oak garage door panel into a fully counterbalanced up and over garage door. These can also be automated easily using one of our heavy duty automation kits.

When making the Oak door panel, please ensure it has a 10 mm gap between door and frame, and a 10 mm gap from bottom of door to floor and top of door to frame crossbar (i.e.) a 10 mm tolerance gap all round. The frame should be made from 70 mm x 70 mm or 70 mm x 90 mm timber if door is heavy or large. Please phone for advice and guidance.
