Installation of your garage door is relatively easy for the competent
DIYer although two people may be required at some points to assist with
door positioning and support.
As with all CE marked products (which is pretty much everything these
days) it is a legal requirement that manufacturers include installation
and operating instructions with all of their products. We are
pleased to say that the instructions provided by all manufacturers are
clear and concise.
HOWEVER... if you are installing a door and motor for someone else
then this is not DIY and there are strict legal requirements that must
be adhered too! A door fitter must be trained and competant and
must issue a Declaration of Conformity to demonstrate compliance with
the HSE's Machinery Directive and issue a CE label for the new assembly.
Worse still is having a carpenter fabricate a up and over door from
scratch. The manufactured door would need full CE complicance type
and product testing before it woul dbe legal to fit it in the UK.
This does not apply to side hinged doors, only up and over and
ESPECIALLY up and over doors that are automated. If you want a
bespoke door then we can offer an empty steel door chassis that can be
populated with any material of your choice (within certain weight
limits). This is a brilliant solution because - it works - it is
tested/CE marked - it is cheaper.
If you have any questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to discuss
them with us.
We do of course provide an installation
service in the South East of England.
