Hormann have a superb solution for a garage door that completely blends into its surroundings, the facade sectional garage door. This garage door is based on their tried and tested commercial specification ALR40 commercial sectional door with increased strength and springing mechanisms to take the weight of many different applied materials to the face.
The door can be infilled with a wide variety of materials in order to match, contrast or simply blend into the building design it is installed to.
The sectional door can be manual or remote control operated and is made to order in sizes up to 6000mm wide and 3000mm high. Many access control systems can be used to suit your daily routines and also provide the very highest security. Access control items such as finger scanners, digital keypads, timers and even GSM connected electronics to allow control of your garage door from your mobile phone even when you are not at home.
Homelink and IO compatibilty is now common place and the latest generation of Bi Secur electric operators ensure the very latest technology for security and door status indication. Take complete control of your home and contents with our vast range of access controls and electronic gadgets.
Using timber, aluminium and other materials that have been used on the fabric of the building stunning effects can be created and you still have a fully operational door system to open up the whole entrance with minimal intrusion to the sides and headroom.
Hormann also have a vast range of traditional up and over garage doors from their N80 and DF98 European range that give the capability of applying different materials to achieve the same effect of blending the garage door to the surroundings. Again these can be made to order and include everything you need, except the cladding material itself.

Domina Overlap Garage Doors
One of the very latest garage doors in our range of bepoke designer doors is the 'Domina Overlap'. This garage door is totally unique in its operation with a counterbalance weight system lifting the door vertically and the entir door panel divided into 2 sections enabling one to slide up under the other. The door is completely trackless appealing to all those who do not want tracking coming into their garage and like clean lines externally and internally. The door is also highly insulated and very secure.
Special Design Timber Doors
Almost any design can be routed into the front face of a timber sectional garage door. Using the latest state of the art routing machinery and the highest quality composite timber panels you can specify your design, the factory will confirm the design with a CAD drawing and then produce the design in the door panels. These doors are generally available up to 5000mm wide and 2375mm high in standard or purpose made sizes and in several timber species from Nordic Pine, Hemlock, Larch and European Oak to name a few.
The ET500 is also a very special up and over door system capable of taking very heavy infill timber whilst providing one of the smoothest and quietest garage door systems available in the UK. See our ET500 feature for more details on this unique and special garage door.
Many manufacturers now extensively use stainless steel in combination with various glazing sections in twin walled polycarbonate or toughened glass for garage doors in most cases and double or triple glazed toughened glass with a massive choice of finishes for the entrance and side door options available.
The actual finish of the front face of the door panels are also a big focus with the woodgrain embossed finishes ever as popular but the smooth silkgrain or even ridged 'micrograin' finishes becoming very popular on many types of property.
The colour choices have been vast for many years but only recently did the extensive use of very tough laminate surface finishes occur with woodgrain effects first and then very recently finishes such as 'Titan Metallic' - a very slightly glittery metal effect finish which is very popular and will compliment many types of property, old and new.
It seems one of the driving forces in home design is 'simple and plain' and our sales of non patterned, totally smooth sectional garage doors has risen dramatically recently. The focus is all on getting the colour and surface finish correct as well as the subtle differences in linear spacing and door furniture finishes, and there are plenty of options believe it or not with very subtle differences.
Simple and clean lines are best!!
