When it comes to picking up a new garage door, there are a number of factors which one needs to take into consideration. From material to style and operation, every single detail is vital if you are looking for a long-lasting and practical solution for your house. 


The vast array of styles, colours and functionalities available might make you feel daunted at first — however, picking the right door for you will present you not only with a superb aesthetic finish, but also endless comfort and practicality. A garage door after all, is a true investment for anyone who is looking to improve their home.

What options do you have? 

First things first, you need to know what options you have when it comes to choosing a garage door. We at FGP Ltd can present you with a variety of options to suit your needs and budget.

Our most requested doors are the following:

Insulated Overhead Sectional Doors

The garage door is typically a very prominent visual feature of our homes. It therefore makes sense to choose a door for its aesthetic appeal as well as its strength and security. An overhead sectional door offers a unique combination of pleasant design, exceptional sturdiness and security. Sectional doors are made up of a series of insulated steel panels joined by a specially designed hinge system that allows it to go straight up and back into the ceiling space.

Sectional doors are easy to use and operate very smoothly. They allow better utilisation of available space, a very high level of security and excellent weather sealing properties.

Our sectional doors are manufactured to the highest safety and quality standards. They are custom made from sprayed galvanized steel and are fully insulated by a 40mm thick CFC-free polyurethane foam filling. Sturdy rubber seals all round ensure a weatherproof and a cleaner garage.

Manual operation is light, smooth, quiet and reliable. Alternatively, sectional doors can be automatically operated by means of an electric motor. Decorative windows to complement any home design can also be included. A pass door can also be incorporated.

We can supply sectional doors in white or in wood-finish as standard. We are able to supply custom colours on request.


Roller Shutters

Roller shutters are manufactured from interconnected steel slats that roll upwards by means of tempered, counterbalancing steel springs of various sizes, mounted on a steel shaft. These shutters are best suited to secure shops, business premises, homes, stores and industrial buildings. For the home-lover, these shutters can be supplied in coloured and insulated aluminium slats that blend in well with the surrounding apertures. The colours available include white and wood finish. Shutters made of this material are very silent and light to operate. Roller shutters can be manually or electrically operated. They can be fitted virtually anywhere and most importantly they do not take up any internal garage space.

Hinged Doors

Our hinged doors are manufactured from galvanized steel sheets in self-finish, in one of our various PVC coat finishes or sprayed according to customers' requirements. Hinged doors can be fitted with opening decorative windows to allow light and ventilation into the interior, as well as give the doors an elegant appearance. These doors can open inwards or outwards.

Hinged doors offer the advantages of strength and security at an affordable price
