Sentry 200.47 industrial door

This metal clad door is incredibly versatile, and can come in a range of widths and styles, including double doors and inward swinging doors. As well as being appropriate for all garages, sheds, warehouses, and factories, they are suitable as secure entry points for storage facilities.

Sentry 801.47 stable door

If you're in the agricultural industry, you'll know how important it is to have a working stable door. Our stable doors can be used as an exit/entry door to allow livestock to pass through. With just the top half open, the door allows animals plenty of space to breathe and view the world around them.

Venttec industrial wall vents and hatches

Industrial wall vents and wall hatches allow air to flow more easily through a structure, while ensuring that the building remains secure. Wall hatches provide great access points for canteen service, container serving, or in shearing sheds, without compromising the integrity of the rest of the structure.


The next thing to consider is all the inclusions that come with personal access doors for sheds and garages. Ask yourself these questions before you make your final selection:

Do I need a single skin, or fully wrapped door? Single skin doors are typically cheaper, but less durable, than their fully wrapped cousins.

What size door do I need? We can make a standard size door, or bespoke options to suit your needs. For example, if you require access for people with disabilities, you will need a wider model.

Will the orientation of the door be outward opening or inward opening? Our standard height outward swinging doors have universal handing (reversible). However, when ordering inswinging doors, you will need to think about which way it swings, making sure you are looking from the inside.

What door accessories do you need? There is a range of accessories available to suit different working conditions. These can drastically change and improve the function of any of our products, and will add value to the safety and security of your business.

  • Door closers: These hydraulic arms ensure that doors fully close when left open — a great security and safety measure for home and business owners.
  • Viewing panel: These panels allow people to see what is on the other side of the door to accept entry and prevent nasty collisions.
  • Spring chain retainers: These prevent damage to doors and door closers from abrupt slams. They are a must-have for businesses with require wind rated doors.
  • J-mould flashings: These are finishes for metal clad roofs, doors, and walls that go well beyond just aesthetics. They prevent water and wind from passing between joins in a building.
  • Air relief grills: These sight-proof fittings allow a free flow of air from room-to-room and outside without compromising security.

As you can see, there is a little more to ordering a door than you may think. When it comes down to it, you also need to decide whether you need a budget option or if you want to go for a more durable, longer-lasting industrial door. This decision will have consequences for your business in the long term.
