How revolutionary products and exceptional customer support literally open doors …

Select Garage Doors is a specialist manufacturer of garage doors on their new site not far from ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions in Manchester (UK). The aim of this company is to produce individual garage doors, made to order, at competitive prices, with quick availability, rather than mass producing 'standard size' products.

Supporting this wish to give the customer something different - a quality garage door that fits in his garage and meets his specific needs rather than him having to just make the best of what was readily available -, is ArcelorMittal’s patented product Magnelis®, which has been designed to last longer than normal galvanised steel.

Following Mr. Geoff Gibson’s (Owner, Select Garage Doors) initial interest in sampling the Magnelis® product, Jon Williams (account manager for this company through ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions United Kingdom) invited them to participate in a Magnelis® webinar in Manchester in early 2013. After the webinar samples were provided to Geoff to trial through his processes, sent for testing by Geoff and then … the first orders were placed!

The top-notch technical support provided by Pierre Thonus (Client Technical Support, ArcelorMittal Europe - Flat Products) during his numerous customer visits was a key factor in making this change happen. 

Today Select promotes their 100% switch to Magnelis® in the manufacture of garage doors via their website on and illustrates how revolutionary products and exceptional customer support literally open doors …

At Select Garage Doors, we’re very proud to announce that our full range of steel garage door panels is now entirely produced from ArcelorMittal’s Magnelis®.

This amazing product represents the fruit of ArcelorMittal’s dedication to innovation and the development of truly excellent metallic coatings. The company offers the peak in economic, technological and environmental advantages, and Magnelis® is a true breakthrough in coatings.

Magnelis® is a metallic zinc coating with 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium. It offers up to 10 times better corrosion resistance than galvanised steel, and is self-repairing on cut edges.

The coating ensures optimal surface protection against long-term wear and tear. Comparative testing has proven it to be significantly better-performing than alternative European products.

We’ve put the metal through our own rigorous independent testing procedure, and the results have been nothing short of outstanding. The properties of Magnelis® made it a simple choice to adopt the product as our main material.

At Select, we strive to produce the highest quality bespoke garage doors. Using Magnelis® was the obvious next step to ensuring our range of garage doors offers the best you can buy for your home. We’re the first manufacturer in the UK to offer its customers the advantages of ArcelorMittal’s Magnelis® and it makes us proud to know we’re at the forefront of our industry.

Call us now to find out how you can be at the leading edge of garage door technology.
