About Us

Laport was started in 1986 to fill a need for specialist garage door installation for the rapidly expanding market and product ranges appearing at that time. Customers were householders, self-builders, building contractors, developers and specifiers. Additionally, considerable consultation and detailed information has been provided to architects and planners since inception.

Suffice to say that there was a huge demand for the supply and installation of quality garage doors expertly fitted and therefore growth was rapid. Automation was offered from the start and has increasingly become the norm. During 2002 it was decided to offer services in the same way for automated gates.


Some two years later the current premises in Derby City was acquired and converted to suitable warehouseing, offices and showroom. It has always been an important feature of Laport to show the products in a well equipped functioning showroom.

Electrically operated gates were soon added to the portfolio.

With over 23 years of experience Laport know a thing or two about Garage Doors & Electric Gates but, we never stop learning: all our products and installations include all the latest developements and training that the industry can offer.


Providing our services for all this time we would be foolish not to listen to our customers and so Installations are constantly developed and upgraded to reflect this feedback.
