“We are demonstrating our commitment to providing our customers with high-quality, reliable and secure products”

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of garage doors, Garador have renewed their membership with Secured by Design.

Garador is at the forefront of modern garage door manufacturing and over the last 15 years have invested over £14 million in production technology and now have one of the most modern garage door manufacturing facilities in Europe located in Yeovil, Somerset.

Originally formed as part of Westland's Engineers Ltd in 1948, as part of a diversification strategy away from military products Garador Limited was setup to manufacture one piece garage doors. Soon after Westland's Engineers Limited purchased a license from Canada to manufacture one piece Up and Over garage doors and became the only manufacturer of such doors in the UK through the 1950s. A purpose-built garage door manufacturing facility was constructed in Yeovil in 1958 and the first Garador branded garage door was manufactured in Yeovil that same year.

Today, Garador is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of garage doors, with a specially developed range of Secured by Design accredited steel up & over garage doors providing an additional level of protection against a break in.

Garador Managing Director Jon Watson said: “By renewing our membership, we are demonstrating our commitment to providing our customers with high-quality, reliable and secure products that meet the highest standards of safety and security. We are proud to work with Secured by Design to help create safer and more secure garage door products for everyone”.

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: "It’s great that Garador have renewed their SBD membership again, they are one of our many long-standing members, having been members since 2011. They have two products that have the Police Preferred Specification, the Garador Guardian up & over garage door range and the Garador SBD sectional garage door. I am looking forward to working with them over the coming years."
