Garador Supports Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance ‘Coast to Coast Charity Cycle Ride’

Garador were delighted to support the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance service in their annual ‘Coast to Coast Charity Cycle Ride’ which was held on Sunday 15th May 2016. This year, there were 539 riders taking part and Garador supported the charity event by providing three of their 18 ton lorries to help transport bicycles from West Bay in Dorset to  Watchet Harbour in North Somerset.

The challenging 54 mile cycle ride began in Watchet Harbour in North Somerset and ran all the way to East Beach car park, West Bay Harbour near Bridport in Dorset. Air ambulance officials were very impressed with the equipment for transporting used to transport the bikes and the care and attention taken by the drivers when loading and unloading.

Bill Sivewright, CEO of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance commented ‘The riders were delighted to be reunited with their ‘trusty steeds’ delivered so carefully by your goodselves [Garador]’

The weather certainly helped and brought out many of the cyclist’s family and friends who came along to offer their support and encouragement at Watchet Harbour, West Bay and various points along the way. Over £54,000 has been raised as part of the Coast to Coast Charity Cycle Ride thus far and Garador has been delighted to support such a worthy and important cause.

Please visit the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance website for further details about the organisation and other charity events.

The Garador Design Range… not just for Grand Designs

Garador 201 Design RangeHave you seen Garador’s 24 different design range door models? With a minimalist steel appearance, these up and over doors are the perfect choice for ultra-modern properties and those with more traditional architectural features.

Currently there is no affordable solution for stylish garage doors on modern buildings in the UK. So Garador developed the Design Range to fill this gap; offering a selection of doors with minimalistic and modern panel designs to fit.

The Design Range doors are built using the same high quality engineering and manufacturing processes used on our standard Garador up and over garage doors, and are available as two base designs:

  • The 100 series is made from 4 horizontal skins.
  • The 200 series has 3 vertical skins.

These doors are available in a choice of 19 colour finishes, including Garador’s exclusive Titan Metallic colour finish.

The design elements are cut out of 2mm thick, brushed stainless steel and then permanently attached to the door. Some of the styles created are identical to the designs on FrontGuard entrance doors, so you can choose a front door to perfectly match your garage door from the same supplier.
