Cedar Garage Doors has a collection entirely made of Cedar. Light in weight and colour, cedarwood is a durable, warm wood species that is commonly used for outer cladding.
Why Cedar Wood?
The majority of Cedar garage doors are designed using Western Red Cedar, offering elegant period designs for different types of property. This wood is known for its exceptional elegance, richly textured wood grain look combined with a palette of dark, soft colours, ranging from light amber to deep honey brown.
It’s safe to say that despite advancement within the garage door industry, to mimic the appearance of a wooden garage door, no man-made material can fully reproduce the depths of cedar wood’s natural lustre. Its subtle scent persists for the remainder of its long life cycle, and this characteristic fragrance adds a further dimension to its universal appeal.
Cedarwood, particularly Western Red Cedar, contains natural oils that act as preservatives to help the wood resist insect attacks and deterioration. The dimensions of this wood stay stable and in a consistent form, smooth and straight. The doors are hand-prepared and finished to the highest quality and provide full weather security when fully furnished. When properly finished and preserved, Western Red Cedar ages gracefully and has been heavily used for many years due to its longevity and stability.
Beauty aside, the strictly functional benefit of cedar doors against other wood provides further advantages: the cedar wood cellular structure produces interior air spaces that give it a safe degree of insulation-much higher than that of other woods and much higher than brick or concrete.
Side Hinged Cedar Garage Doors
The Side-Hinged door range is an alternative to the Up & Over door system, offering a more traditional opening style to the garage door. Traditionally, they are made of solid cedar stilts and rails, with either plywood or solid cedar frames. Both joints are morticed and tenoned, glued, and wedged – that’s why it’s the best joint system in door construction.
Doors are available with a range of hardware variations to suit your style.
The Cedar Doors Side-Hinged garage door set consists of different Up & Over models which are converted to use Side-Hinged gears.
Sectional Cedar Doors
Vertical lifting doors are a modern design for the operation of cedar domestic garage doors.
The Cedar Doors range of sectional overhead doors provide the same advantages as Up & Over doors. They are made to the same high standards and specifications as the conventional range of doors is. They do, however, have a completely different method of operation. The tracking system takes vertically up and down parts of the cedar panel with curved tracks.
They take the individual door panels to the garage on horizontal rails, sitting neatly above the opening height. Sectional doors offer greater practicality, better sealing properties and greater overall protection.
The Cedar Door Sectional garage door range consists of various Up & Over models built to be fitted with sectional garage door gears. View our product catalogue to view the full range of Cedar Doors Sectional Garage Doors.
