Garador raises £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support

Our annual Macmillan coffee morning that actually ended up being 2 days of baked goodness, raised a fantastic £200 for the charity. An incredible amount of effort went into making the event a success, from baking the goodies to helping set up the event. There were over 20 different styles of cake and savoury! Some highlights were Emma's Maltesar cake, which looked amazing, and Sarah's coffee cake, which tickled some taste buds. We'd like to say a huge thankyou to everyone involved and for supporting such a great charity.

Timber-effect Georgian, Beaumont and Cathedral doors to be discontinued

Due to reducing demand and high costs for raw materials, we have taken the decision to discontinue timber-effect Georgian, Beaumont and Cathedral up & over garage doors from the range. We still have a small number of these door styles in stock and will continue to offer them until all stocks are exhausted.

The Georgian, Beaumont and Cathedral door models will of course still be available in a choice of 19 standard RAL colours.

For those still looking for a steel up & over garage door with the natural appearance of timber, we will continue to offer timber-effect Wentwood garage doors and Sherwood garage doors, which are available in Golden Oak and Rosewood colour finishes.

New Duragrain sectional garage door finishes

Duragrain sectional garage door in Colonial Walnut We are delighted to introduce a brand-new collection of Duragrain surface finishes to the Garador sectional garage door range. Duragrain is available in a choice of 24 decorative colour finishes, each with a unique and stylish design imitating a variety of real woods, natural stones and metal. These offer a more expansive alternative to the paint and timber effect finishes in our standard range of sectional garage doors.

The decorative colour finishes are printed onto the surface of the door; delivering a UV-resistant colourfast appearance. A final scratch-resistant coating helps to protect the print from the effects of weathering. Duragrain is only available in a Premium (42mm) insulated garage door style, with our Deluxe specification available as a cost option. The Deluxe version is supplied with fittings, frames, tracks and connection rails painted in Grey White (RAL 9002), and tandem track rollers for a smooth door operation.

 The top fascia panel for these doors is supplied in Woodgrain Traffic White (RAL 9016) as standard, and is optionally available in an NCS colour complementing the surface finish of the Duragrain door. You can see the full range of NCS colours in the Duragrain price list.

Tension lifting gear now as standard on sectional garage doors up to 4000mm wide (excluding Silkgrain)

Tension lifting gear has previously only been available as standard on Garador sectional garage doors up to 3048mm wide, but is now available as standard on doors up to 4000mm wide and 2625mm high (on smaller widths up to 3250mm), providing more flexibility when fitting larger doors in garages with less headroom. This includes both Classic and Premium insulated garage doors, but excludes the Silkgrain surface finish. A sectional garage door with tension lifting gear that is 4000mm wide and is automated with a GaraMatic operator still only requires a minimum of 115mm headroom, whilst the same setup with torsion lifting gear requires a minimum of 210mm headroom.

Updated sectional garage door tension lifting gear up to 4000mm wide as standard

Please note, the existing stock of torsion lifting gear sectional doors will be supplied until current stocks are exhausted. If you require tension lifting gear sectional doors specifically, please state on your order. If you require further information, please contact the sales team here in Yeovil.

Garador Supports Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge

We continued to support the Coast to Coast Charity cycle challenge again for 2019, providing bicycle transport from the start and end of the event. Garador first supported the event back in 2014. We provided our garage door lorries to help transport participants bicycles from the end to the start of the cycle ride.

This year the route remained the same, with cyclists riding from Watchet Harbour in North Somerset all the way down to West Bay in South Somerset, a distance of 54 miles. The cycle event helps to raise lots of vital funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, a really worthwhile charity which helps to save lives everyday.
