Side-Hinged Garage Doors

What Is A Side-Hinged Garage Door?

Side-hinged garage doors, also referred to as side opening or swing doors, are hinged at the side and open outwards. This type of door is typically ‘double-leafed’, meaning it is split in two, allowing one or both doors to be opened as required. The simple design can be operated manually or electrically.

Automated

All side-hinged garage doors can be operated manually or electrically. A boom-style electric operator combines with a swing-arm conversion kit to automate the garage door. The operator holds the door firmly in place to ensure the garage is completely secure. Manual releases are advised when the garage door is the only means of entry and exit to the garage.
