Sectional garage doors are a great alternative to the more traditional up and over garage doors. They are the best engineered garage doors on the market, as they are made up of separate sections that rise vertically with no loss of driveway space. They are also highly secure, highly insulated and brimming with cutting edge technology.
Sectional garage doors are a great way to save space, they open vertically upwards and are suspended under the ceiling. This means that you can make full use of the space inside, and don’t lose valuable driveway space.
Also, they don’t require any special fitting, and can be fitted in just about any garage door opening. They provide full opening drive through width, offering up to 14cm more passage width than up and over doors – making them perfect for owners of 4x4s or other large vehicles.
Safe and Secure
The use of the kind of garage doors is much more secure than their up and over counterparts. Uninvited guests don’t stand a chance against the ones available from Hörmann’s sectional garage doors, as the anti-lift kit automatically engages when the garage door is closed – protecting against forced opening. This patented door latching is purely mechanical, so will continue to secure the door even if the power fails!
Sectional garage doors are also tested and certified in accordance with the high safety requirements of the EU, standard 13241-1. That makes them incredibly robust and durable, meaning your new sectional garage door will last for years and years.
Efficient Thermal Insulation
If your garage is connected to your house, then it is essential that your garage door is well insulated. Sectional garage doors naturally possess high insulation values, which means that both you garage and home will better retain the heat.
To further improve the already high insulation values, Hörmann have developed the ThermoFrame frame connection – a plastic profile which fits perfectly on the door frame. This creates a thermal break between the frame and brickwork – improving the thermal insulation by up to 15%!
Cutting Edge Technology
To remotely access your sectional garage door, suppliers use cutting edge, bi-directional and high-security BiSecur radio systems that work off future-oriented technology. This technology allows you to conveniently and safely operate your garage doors, without fear of malfunction.
Systems like the extremely secure BiSecur encryption protocol with an interference-free range makes sure no-one can copy your radio signal, and is considered more secure than online banking. All reputable suppliers will have these systems tested and certified by security experts.
We are not being biased, but sectional garage doors are much more aesthetically pleasing than the traditional up and over garage doors. They look better from the roadside, and from the inside of the garage too. The way in which they lift vertically also has a touch of elegance associated with it, the motion is quiet and precise meaning any late night uses won’t wake the neighbours up.
There is a reason sectional garage doors are considered the premium garage door option, as they offer so much more than the traditional up and over garage door!
