GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) garage doors

GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) garage doors are quite simply the best doors that you can buy. GRP has a better strength to weight ratio than steel, is a natural insulating material, it won’t warp, shrink or rust and is virtually maintenance free.

A modern composite laminate, GRP is a versatile and well proven construction material that has been in use for over 50 years in a huge variety of applications, from boatbuilding, to motor vehicles, to building materials.

GRP is an inherently dent resistant laminate, able to withstand knocks and blows that would easily permanently deform and damage a traditional steel door.

Wessex GRP doors are tested to, and exceed, the same stringent impact resistance requirements as those stipulated under BS6206:1981 as it applies to Safety Glass and Safety Plastics for use in critical locations in buildings, thereby confirming and guaranteeing the toughness of the product.

GRP is probably the ultimate material from which to manufacture a garage door. Unlike steel, GRP door panels will not rust or corrode, and are particularly suitable for areas close to the coast where steel doors are severely tested and often have a disappointingly brief life.

Unlike timber, GRP door panels will not shrink, swell, warp or twist and do not require the regular attention needed to ensure a timber door retains its good looks.

GRP can be moulded in smooth gloss finishes or with a stunningly life like Woodgrain finish, using moulds taken from real high quality solid timber door designs to give an authentic and faithful finish to your garage door that will even deceive the experts.

GRP doors are manufactured by skilled laminators and finishers in our Verwood factory where each door is built to order. Unlike mass produced ‘synthetic’ machine applied finishes, Wessex timber effect doors replicate nature in that, when completed, no two doors are ever identical, each having been built and finished by hand.

When cured, each GRP door is a single homogenous composite panel that includes galvanised steel stiffening for strength and solidity as an integral part of its structure.

One further significant feature of GRP is its’ ease of repair. Should a door panel become scratched or damaged, GRP, more than any other material used in garage door construction, is easily and effectively restored leaving a repair that would pass the closest inspection.

ABS Up-and-Over

ABS garage doors closely match and complement the finish of today’s widely available white PVCu window products and share their durability and low maintenance nature.

The Wessex ABS Range encompasses 10 popular door designs. These doors are characterised by crisp, clean, deep profiles and have a low-gloss white finish.

Timber Up-And-Over

The warm traditional appearance of Wessex Timber garage doors is due to the beauty of the solid cedar panel or external grade ply panel with cedar facings used in construction. 

Our doors are made from timber produced from renewable sources and the raw materials must meet our rigid standards before being hand crafted into a quality Wessex Timber garage door
