Ryterna SHD (side hinged doors) offer the benefits of a pair of garage doors and incorporate 40mm insulated steel panels and all round rubber seals.

With no tracks, rollers, cables, or mechanisms, side-hinged garage doors are simple solid leafs connected to the frame via hinges. However, the modern take on this old style of garage door maybe not as simple as they appear at first glance. Ryterna side hinged garage doors combine traditional appearance and modern design.

As the manufacturer of bespoke products, Ryterna can make modern side-hinged garage doors with a traditional appearance like from 1960-ties. Or contemporary design doors to fit a modern architectural setting.

The range can be supplied in almost any colour with a great range of standard RAL and wood effect colours plus textures.

There is an option of scratch resistant double glazing and full vision panels. The doors can also be configured to open centrally as a 50/50 split or alternatively as a 70/30 split with a pedestrian door and a larger leaf. The system comes with a robust steel box section frame and a variety of threshold options.
