Easy to use
A traditional pair of side hung garage doors gives very easy pedestrian access without having to expose the entire garage and can be much easier for some of us in terms of opening especially where a door is needed to be raised up in its entirety.
These side hung doors are becoming increasingly popular where the garage is not necessarily being used for vehicle storage and frequent access is required (such as workshop or perhaps a games room).
Side hung garage doors provide a good solution if your garage is short on head room, and of course if the garage is well equipped internally with cupboards or shelving, then there may be no room for a door mechanism to operate inside the garage. In these circumstances the side hung door nay provide an ideal solution, and because there are no mechanism, coils and springs etc, the entire system is almost maintenance free.
