The rise in insulated garage doors

Insulated garage doors have continued to rise in popularity over the last 10 years, with our surveyors being asked more about insulated doors.

More readily available:

More garage door companies are making insulated garage doors readily available; with more featuring either a double skinned steel or aluminium panel design. The insulation not only provides its primary purpose but also adds strength to the door which in turn provides great stability. Consequently, this allows for larger sized garage doors to be produced without deflection. Our customer love the Hörmann sectional LPU garage door and we believe its one of the best insulated garage doors on the market.

Adaptability for garage conversions:

More and more families have considered converting their garage in recent years too which has, in turn, meant more families have looked at a way of insulating their garage door to prevent heat loss. Although some think of taking their door out, ones that still want their home to look like it features a garage often choose the very best insulated garage doors for best results.

Climate changes:

Believe it or not but the weather in Yorkshire is actually getting more extreme. The summers are getting warmer the winters are considerably cooler. To ensure the weather does not cause problems for items inside, insulated garage door provide a greater seal against rain water and weather elements, especially compared against a traditional older style up and over garage door.

Such has been the increase in demand, companies like Hörmann have been technologically advancing their insulated garage doors as well, to help provide an even greater product.

KAT UK Bifold Doors and Sliding Doors

Access Garage Doors now offer beautiful bifold and sliding doors

Despite some pretty dismal summers and utterly freezing winters, here in the UK we seem ever optimistic about the weather, determined to do everything we can to ‘bring the outside in’ — and what better way to take advantage of any rare glimpses of sunny weather than with doors that allow you to open up an entire section of your home to the outdoors.

Bi-fold doors are becoming hugely popular and are taking over from sliding doors and conventional patio doors in new build houses and residential extensions. But are bi-fold doors the right choice for you? Maybe sliding doors will suit your needs better, or could the traditional patio door be your ideal solution.


There is no denying bi-folding doors come out on top with regards to creating space. Whilst a normal residential sliding door can open, there is always a fixed section which you can do little about. You could go down the route of a more commercial or architectural sliding patio door which has the extra runners to allow the normally fixed section to slide away, allowing for the full opening to be used. But that is a much more expensive option. A bi-folding door can easily achieve a full opening, be it two metres wide or six.


However, sliding patio doors can look incredibly stylish. Say you have a five metre wide opening facing onto your garden with views that go on for miles. Do you want to have a five section bi-fold, with four uprights spoiling that view? Probably not. But with the higher end aluminium sliding doors you could fit a quite visually impressive two section door, giving you maximum glass, almost uninterrupted views and still a big opening space with it.

So if you’re looking to create a new space in your home contact the team today for information and prices on our Bifold and Sliding aluminium door range – www.accessgaragedoors.com or call 0800 716 569.
