Making choice that little bit easier...
What is GRP?
GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) is a versatile 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. It 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.
GRP is an inherently dent resistant laminate, able to withstand knocks and blows that would easily permanently deform and damage a traditional steel door.
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.
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.
What is ABS?
ABS doors are made from a tough yet flexible material commonly used for car bumpers, so when knocked the door panel flexes then bounces back as good as new. Fully bonded steel stiffeners at the rear of all ABS doors reinforce the panel and help protect against a forced entry. The doors are maintenance free and only need the occasional wipe down with a damp cloth.
