Glass Sectional Door - Double Sizes

Glass garage doors - The opportunity to have a garage door which you can see through from inside and outside with the largest possible glazed sections built into a lightweight but very strong aluminium profile sectional panels interlocking with each other. Using the very strong principal of the sectional type overhead door it is possible to have a wide range of made to measure sizes in either real glass or a super strong acrylic glazing, all with various options for the final finish, whether it is totally clear or tinted, frosted, stippled and so on….



Expect to pay between £5,000 and £7,500 inc. VAT installed for a one off installation of a single width glass sectional door with a white or trend framework colour finish and purpose made sizes right up to 5500mm wide and 3000mm high. The price indicated is for a white or trend finished frame colour and a choice of different 20mm double glazed polymer windows, with either a clear glazing right through to a 70% light transmission tinted option.

Real glass is possible as an option, but the weight can make it a little prohibitive for the door sizes and also the springing balance mechanism. The weight means larger springs have to be used to balance the door. The types of glazing possible are constantly evolving, so although the principle of this door is easy enough to grasp it is best to enquire nearer the time for purchasing and see the overall options available then.


Colours and Finishes

The majority of the door panel with these doors is glazing and the only colour is the surrounding framework. However most of the standard colours still remain as options with White and trend the no cost standard option and some other RAl colours as additional costs. You cannot have laminate foils on these types of doors. The glazing options vary and are constantly updated too as new technology and material processing comes through.


Your style, your choice

We have installed many ‘glass garage doors’ over the years and they all look quite different with different frame finishes and the integration with the glazing also different on each model.

Some people want the maximum visibility and always for different reasons - maybe to present their car collection or simply to have maximum light and vision inside the garage when occupied as a further room or workshop to the house?

Other people want the smoked or mirrored effects possible to have vision from the inside outwards, but make it so from the outside you cannot see in.


The glazing panel widths can vary to create a very different look to the final door and most glazed sectional garage doors can be made in sizes covering pretty much anybody's needs - single double or triple width garages up to 8000mm wide. Also extra high as well…up to 7500mm!!

The framework surrounding the glazing is manufactured from high quality aluminium profiles and available in many different colour finishes for the perfect final effect.


Single, double and triple glazing is available across different models and they all offer different levels of insulation and vision. Many of the doors actually use toughened acrylic glazing with anti scratch technology but real glass is also available in single and double glazed units with more limited options on sizing due to the additional weight involved.

We offer the ALRF42 Vitraplan door from Hormann which provides a flush surface mounted glazing with smoked effect for a truly stunning final effect. The glazing is finished in either a grey or brown shading externally and from outside looks very much like a seamless facade.

Many of the glass sectional door models we offer can have the optional and very useful ‘wicket’ door inset. A pedestrian access door with a DDA compliant threshold to offer a great entry and exit convenience on foot.


The clever engineering behind these doors is amazing to see as of course you can still open the entire door whenever required and the pedestrian door simply integrates back into the main garage door for the operation. The pedestrian door is also a good standard width, usually over 1000mm wide for the easiest of access.


Wicket doors are perfect for those who regualy use their garage door for entering their property and want a garage door for a larger opening but also want a pedestiran door for ease of use. Wicket doors are becoming more popular due to convenience and the amount of use they get with lots of homes now using their garage as a home office, gym or extra living space.
