Our passion for design and innovation is in our history

Established in 1958, the business initially designed a steam tube oven best suited to small bakeries in rural areas. However, having an interest in mechanical solutions and practical applications, the original business saw itself diversifying into garage doors for Melbourne. The post war boom in the construction industry allowed for the business to quickly establish itself as a successful access control company, which was named Evenglide Garage Doors . During the early 1960's the business quickly grew to be one of the major forces in the garage door industry, providing custom manufactured Tilt doors and then freshly invented B&D Roll-A-Door.

Becoming an official B&D Doors Melbourne dealer in 1976, Evenglide established itself as one of the major garage door retailers in Victoria. Providing for the demand of custom manufactured doors created the need for larger premises, and in 1989 Evenglide relocated to a factory in Lexton Road, Box Hill. However, these premises were again outgrown, and the business was forced to move to Metropolitan Avenue, Nunawading, in 1997.

In 2012, our current premises in Blackburn, were fully rebuilt to provide the business with the ability to showcase our products, including the premium range of Hörmann German insulated sectional garage door solutions and exclusive 4Ddoors products. Our current showroom on Whitehorse Road, Blackburn, was created in conjunction with Room 11 architects to encompass our brand and provide a building which represents our passion and appreciation for design and architecture.

Since 1958 Evenglide has been providing quality products and expert advice to all home owners, builders and architects of Melbourne. Evenglide has aspired to service the complete Melbourne door systems market, providing an extensive range of products. We can provide sectional and tilt doors right through to fully custom designed and manufactured domestic and commercial systems. Our reputation of collaborating and facilitating such options has made the Evenglide brand synonymous with a complete solutions company.

Visit our showroom and allow us to explore with you the best solution for your door or gate systems and automation needs.
