Menai Timber Garage Doors
Do timber side hinged garage doors come much stronger and well built as these?
Three solid, full thickness rails, wedged morticed and tenon jointed framework – give them a go if you dare!
Uniquely structured with an offset central timber rail (this can be lifted up or dropped to suit whatever you need – please contact us!) for strength and rigidity. We also happen to think it looks rather nice!
The simple elegance of these doors, matched with our joinery expertise and combined with beautiful timbers is the answer to your garage door prayers!
The Menai garage doors are supplied fully finished sanded ready for final decoration, whether you choose the hardwood or softwood versions each can be painted or stained – we don’t use ‘joinery grade softwood’ so you have no problem in staining the softwood – it looks just as good!
Low centre or high centre versions of the Beaumaris?
The high centre versions of the Beaumaris tends to be most popular but if you do need the low centre then please let us know!
Both versions are made exactly the same and in fact it’s just the configuration of the diagonal braces on the rear of the gates that differ – just let us know which version you require as you place an order!
Three solid, full thickness rails?
As mentioned above the Menai doors have three solid full thickness rails, another words if you look at both the front and back of the doors then the three rails are visible from both sides of the doors.
Because of these three solid rails, the Menai timber garage doors are ideal for larger openings where strength is required and also a perfect choice if your looking to automate a pair of side hinged garage doors.
