garage door frame sections
Please let us know which door you want to be the main opening door when viewed from the outside & whether the doors are to open in or out?
You can customise your doors by having stable style doors (top opens seperately from the bottom section), unenqually split doors (one door bigger than another)
What are unequally split garage doors
This is where one door of the pair is larger than the other, useful for if you want mainly pedestrian access through the doors.
Usually the smaller door will be around 915mm/3ft wide and would also be the door that opens first - this will be confirmed once an order is receiverd?
What are stable style garage doors
This allows the top section of the doors to open independently of the bottom section. Height of split on the Alyn can be whatever you require. Additional hinges & ironmongery will be required for the stable door option.
Enter the height of the split required if you wish to have stable style garage doors
what is a protruding cill
Cill is in supplied in same timber as the doors & frame, with exception being, a Meranti cill (Hardwood) is supplied for use with a Scandinavian Redwood set of doors & frame.
'Stick on' draught excluder (supplied loose) for meeting stiles of doors and when ordered, the door frame.

Description

Alyn Framed ledged and braced garage doors

The Alyn is a true framed ledged and braced door, if you look at the front and rear pics above you’ll notice that the boarding ends where it comes into contact with the bottom rail, and the bottom rail is at the very bottom of the door.

These days you’ll find a lot of people trying to pass off ‘framed, ledged and braced doors’ that do not have a full thickness bottom rail (they have a hidden or barefaced bottom rail which can only be seen from the rear of the door) as can be seen on the centre rail in the Alyn doors above – these are not true framed ledged and braced doors (FLB). If you’re looking for a door without a solid bottom rail then check out our Clwyd garage doors still based on a through, wedged morticed and tenon jointed frame!

If you do choose a true framed, ledged and braced door then the other thing to check is the proportions of the bottom rail in comparison to the top rail or head – the bottom rail is always bigger! As with the Alyn above, the bottom rail is 5 3/4″ / 145mm while the top rail is 3 3/4″ / 95mm. The Reason for this is tried and tested over the years, the door would not look right with a 3 3/4″ high bottom rail and if you decided to match the top rail with the dimensions of the bottom rails (145mm) then again the doors look out of proportion!

So why a solid bottom rail?

The solid bottom rail gives the doors additional strength that is especially needed on wider doors. It also provides the added benefit of protecting the more vulnerable end grain of the tongue and groove boards (end grain can be difficult to protect adequately with paints or stains as it gets absorbed rather quickly and doesn’t last as long!), with a solid bottom rail the boarding of the doors is approx 5 3/4 inches (145mm) high up from the ground meaning that the boards cannot soak up any lying water.

Customise our Alyn garage doors
As with all our garage doors, the Alyn is made to measure and can be customised further. You may want an unequally split pair of doors for example or stable style garage doors, for anything not listed then please contact us.
