Pedestrian garage doors, which may also be referred to as garage doors with a wicket door, are the number one solution for garage owners who desire practical and frequent access to their garage space.
Garage doors with door openings for pedestrians tend to be manufactured with side hinges, although this isn’t the only option available with WM Garage Doors. Garage doors with doors in them that use a side hinged opening, have the most most traditional appearance. These are usually configured to open half and half or one third and two thirds.
Garage doors with man door openings can also be supplied in the popular up & over range. Here the pedestrian door is located in the centre and opens outwards. When the entire garage door needs to be opened, they lift upwards and either form a canopy or retract inside.
Convenience of not having to open the entire garage door is the main reason to choose a pedestrian garage door. In particular a man door for garage doors will save time for those who need regular access to bikes, mopeds or motorbikes.
Regular access to the garage space may also be desired when the garage holds a deep freezer or children’s toys and footballs.
Greater privacy of the contents of the garage are given through the use of a pedestrian door and when wall space for storage is critical, then there is no wall space lost like it would be if an additional pedestrian door was installed.
Garage doors with man doors for pedestrians can be insulated, making them suitable for garages that are used for their work space or used as a workshop. Automatic garage doors with a pedestrian door fitted into them also offer the easiest access should there be a power cut.
