Which size door do I need?

All our doors are listed by opening size so you don't need to do any maths to work out which one you need. Select the size of the opening the door is for and the door you receive will be larger than the opening by the amount required for fitting. E.g. the "seven foot" door available on this site is actuallly 7 feet 2 inches wide.

What is the maximum height these doors will fit?

The standard doors listed on this site fit openings up to seven feet tall. However, even though they are not yet listed on the site we can now provide doors for openings up to ten feet high. Please contact us using the contact form or call on 07850 368 501 to get an accurate quote for these or any other bespoke sizes.

Why is there a surcharge on some colours such as Golden Oak?

Some colours are in a a laminated finish which requires a slightly different manufacturing process, you can expect to see this increased price for the same colours anywhere that sells Gliderol doors. The type of finish for a colour also depends on the type of door e.g. Mahogany woodgrain is a standard finish on uninsulated doors but is a laminated finish on insulated doors.

No, insulated doors come with a complete Somfy automation unit as standard.
