Design

Leafs

Ryterna construct side hinged garage door leaves using double skin steel sections filled with Freon-free PU foam. As a result providing excellent thermal and acoustic insulation for your home. We fit leaves with our unique extruded aluminium ’h’ section profile which also contains tubular rubber seals. Due to these features garage door have perfect all round perimeter seal to the frame. As a result you will have comfortable environment inside your garage, and keeping the weather out.

Frame

To eliminate draughts and keep the elements out our ‘P’ section side hinged door frames are rebated to fit the leaves. We construct it from 2 mm thick steel with mitred corners and welded reinforcement for strength. Furthermore we zinc coat, prime and powder coat frame steel for extra durability. Frame with mouldings could be a good choice if door is fitted flush with front wall. Moreover for custom installations we manufacture side hinged garage doors with tubular frames. As standard we use 40×60 mm rectangular tube but othe options are awailable as well.

Hinges

We connect leaves to the frames using high quality aluminium alloy hinges. Each hinge we equip with a roller bearings for a smooth opening and closing action. In addition hinges are adjustable in two directions. This feature means that your door will always keep perfect shape despite how intensively it will be exploited. Even more new design hinges significantly speed up installation process.
