Good thermal insulation is produced thanks to 42mm thick Hörmann sectional door sections derived straight from the hugely successful LPU40 sectional garage door ranges including, rubber weather seals in-between each section to give an excellent U value to the panels. Although the bottom section of the door cannot be described as sealed it will provide the necessary ventilation whilst the insulated panels help maintain a balanced temperature in the garage. The venting is essential if you use your garage for a car, especially in the winter months when you might be parking your vehicle in the garage while wet from the rain.
These doors are manufactured from the same double skinned panels as the LPU40 insulated sectional doors so have all the benefits of a tried and tested system sold over many years.
Safe operation is guaranteed with Hörmann finger trap protection to ensure nothing will be stuck between the slats as standard as well as, auto reversing when any obstruction is met during the opening or closing cycle. For extra safety, an infra-red beam can be added, giving added security if the door is near to a public path or highway even if you have a very young family and actively use your garage. The beams are designed to ensure the door will not touch anything before stopping and when reversing. While this has been produced for safety the amount of pressure required to stop this door is minimal in the event of an obstruction.
With 7 different handle options and 15 preferred colour options for the front face of the door panels, you will be able to finish your door with and personalise it to suit the home. Not only has this, the superb and durable, decograin woodgrain options offers woodgrain effects to a laminate foil finish. With a choice of Golden Oak and Dark Oak with a new Titan Metallic CH703 finish available as from autumn 2014.
There is also a wicket door positioning for entering the garage without fully opening the door. Simply set one of the hand transmitter buttons to open the door the width of a normal pedestrian door rather than fully opening. The next push of the button will close the door again. This is particularly useful for the ever increasing amount of people not using their garage for a vehicle but if you do and have an extra wide garage you only ever need to partially open the door to enter or exit on foot.
3 Door Style Variants:
M-ribbed, L-ribbed and S-panelled panel designs are offered in the HST range as shown below in single sizes.
4 Surface Finishes

Woodgrain finish offers a textured surface to the outside with the effect of wood graining actually pressed into the steel panel.
Sandgrain is a smooth finish surface and uses coil coated steel offering 4 standard colours at a very small extra cost over woodgrain.
Silkgrain is actually a thicker steel and offers the smoothest surface finish with almost any RAL colour ultimately available.
Decograin is a laminated foil coating providing a tough exterior finish in realistic and very durable wood effect.
Optimally Matched Electric Operators
The Hormann SupraMatic or ProMatic electric operators are available, with BiSecur 2, it offers the easiest door operation utilising a 24V motor driving a carriage and boom system down one wall of the garage providing the locking when closed.

All the HST side sectional doors are made to order and there are no standard sizes. Each door is simply priced and ordered from a matrix price list offering sizes to the millimetre. The various track applications available mean you can take the door down one wall only or use a bi parting system and utilise both internal walls with the electric motor head either at the back or the front depending on your internal dimensions available. The minimum headroom you require is 95mm when the electric operator is fitted to the back of the garage.
Why Have A Side Sectional Door?
There are great benefits in installing a side sectional sliding type door. For a start the door has no kick out when opening or closing which means you can park right up to the door face inside or outside. A side sectional door as stated before you can partially open the door and enter or exit the garage and they are ideal for mews style properties where the access may actually be inside the garage itself.
A side sectional door does not require much headroom and although the side room may be around 500mm ideally we find round the corner doors are generally used in larger garages. The benefits of a door sliding down one or both walls, does mean you have a door system never in your way above your head. In many cases the wall which has the door passing down it can be fitted with a false wall and then shelving if required so the door system actually disappears behind a stud wall when open and still allows you to use your wall for storage. A lot of people relish the fact the door means you actually have to keep one wall clear so keep the whole garage tidier in the process!
