Warranty that really means something...

What’s in a warranty? At Woodrite the warranty that covers our fully finished doors is built upon the quality of materials added to the treatment and protection given to the timbers by our team of craftspeople.

Woodrite individually dips each board that makes up a door. Others may only dip a door once it is built... We seal exposed end grain, seal ledges and even apply topcoats to our doors upside down to ensure every vulnerable area is protected.

Consequently, we're very confident when we give our Cedar, Oak and Idigbo doors a five-year warranty on finish and an exceptional ten-year warranty on Accoya®. What’s more, our Oak, Idigbo and Accoya doors are fully finished as standard and Cedar is available fully finished as a low-cost option

Peace of mind

“We like to give our customers peace of mind – we give our doors a warranty we believe in and stand by, because our doors will stand the test of time. We encourage everyone to compare our doors to any in the industry because we know we’re the best on quality, long-term performance and value as a result!”



SWS UK are Developing SeceuroDoor 7502 – an Industrial Door with a Level 2 Security Rating

We are delighted to announce the development of SeceuroDoor 7502 within our range of industrial products. 

The robust 7502 will be manufactured with an 18 gauge steel, as opposed to the 20 or 22 used on our standard commercial products and is fitted with windlocks, wind guides and internal bullet locks as standard, resulting in a shutter that benefits from advanced security but with the style and ease of operation as our existing industrial shutters

We are working with The Loss Prevention Certification Board to put the 7502 through rigorous tests which include a series of extended timed attacks with tools of a higher mechanical advantage than those used in the level 1 tests. The LPS 1175 test stipulates the allowable toolset and minimum time at each security rating to prevent forcible entry into the building.

No one regrets buying quality...

Simple truths about Woodrite Doors
Garage door fitters
For the last 6 years woodrite has been consistent in its approach to making wooden garage doors. We don't compromise on quality and we know your customers will love our doors.

We began with Cedar before adding Oak, Idigbo and most recently Accoya to our range of timbers.

We are certain we make the best timber garage doors on the market. Why? Here's 10 for starters!

  • We select the timbers for colour on each and every door from the top grades, we don't just "pick from the pile"
  • We dip treat each board individually not just the complete door.
  • Anywhere rain water might sit is sealed and protected.
  • Our stain partners Teknos give us up to a 5 year warranty on Cedar, Oak and Idigbo and 10 years on Accoya.
  • We can match stains to other finishes, Farrow and Ball colours and we'll send out a sample to approve.

  • Custom designs are simply no problem - we specialise in saying yes!
  • We use traditional wood working techniques combined with technology to produce consistent quality.
  • We actually care - we stand back and look at every door with the same critical eye, every time.
  • We understand that lead times and communication matter - we always keep you in the loop and up to date, good news or bad.
  • We've plenty more to come - anyone for sectional doors and matching gates? Watch this space!

DHF intensifies campaign against non compliant garage door installations

The Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) is working closely with trading standards officers in a bid to reduce the number of unsafe and non compliant domestic garage doors being installed.

Of the thousands of garage doors installed each year, the DHF Garage Door Group estimates that 15% are either unsafe or have not undergone the legally required testing procedures. The DHF Garage Door Group, which represents the UK’s leading suppliers and installers of domestic garage doors, made this estimate following a number of site inspections carried out over the last 12 months.

Said Michael Skelding, DHF general manager and secretary: “The extent of non compliance is shocking, particularly regarding roller shutter doors. In one case, our inspectors identified a non-DHF company which has supplied hundreds of non compliant domestic garage doors. A garage door can be the largest and heaviest moving part in the home. If it’s unsafe then it’s quite capable of causing serious injury, or worse.

“Householders wanting a new garage door, or are having their existing door motorised, need the confidence that their supplier will fit a product that is legal and safe for their family to use.”

DHF investigations into non compliant garage door installations revealed an alarming list of faults including:

  • Unprotected roller mechanisms that could trap hands
  • Deficient fixings that could collapse without warning
  • Lack of protection against the door closing violently in the event of parts failure
  • Lack of touch sensitive protection to prevent crushing injury
  • Faulty electrics.


Homeowners should ensure their garage door has been CE marked and should ask the garage door company to provide Declarations of Performance and Conformity to demonstrate it has undergone the required testing and complies with the Construction Products Regulation and the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations.
