Produced in Dorset UK, Wessex Doors is Europe’s largest producer of low-maintenance Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) garage doors and a leading innovator in garage door design.
Not only is GRP tough, but it is also excellent for resisting the ravages of the weather, even in coastal areas.
The corrosive effects of salt-laden air can be easily seen in rusting doors, door hinges and garage doors. GRP prevents corrosion, and the advantages at home are just as compelling, particularly that of being pretty much maintenance-free.
Glass-reinforced polyester (GRP) is the material of choice for the sailing industry – see how many GRP yachts are out there. Wessex uses the finest softwood masters to produce moulds with improved grain and details that no exterior grade wood can equal. The hand-applied antique finishes the transformation into a door that looks just like wood, but with the added bonus of minimal maintenance.
Wessex Up and Over Garage Doors
Up and over doors are one of the most commonly fitted types of garage door in the United Kingdom, and the Wessex range is both diverse and appealing. Wessex Up and Over doors are built on a sturdy, corrosion protected steel chassis that provides a protective “picture frame” edge around the door panel. The doors chassis is supplied in white, brown or black depending on the colour of the door and the frames are available to fit.
Doors are available in two forms of construction:
3 Crown Range
The basic build specification of Wessex. Three Crown doors are available in standard sizes and have a corrosion-resistant steel chassis to provide additional strength and durability. They are available with a canopy or a retractable gear and, where necessary, window options.
4 Crown Range
The back of the door panel on Four Crown doors is coated with a “flow coat” of resin for improved rigidity and a sleek interior finish in white reflective light. They’re available with a canopy or a retractable gear and, where necessary, window options.
Wessex Side Hinged Garage Doors
The Wessex GRP Platinum Collection of Side Hinged Garage Doors looks just like wood, but with the added bonus of minimal maintenance.
Each door is built on a steel chassis that provides the door panels with a tidy edge and gives strength and rigidity to the door. The chassis is available in white, brown or black (frames matching the garage door are also available).
The doors have a black lever handle, which operates a locking latch on the active leaf, while the inactive leaf is protected by a locking bolt.
The back of the Platinum side hinged doors is white as standard or brown as an optional extra, with a white, brown or black chassis.
Chassis Colours * White doors on white chassis, ebony woodgrain doors on black chassis and all other wood grain colours on brown chassis. Orange, Green and Blue Colours and Marine Colours on a white or black chassis.
