Hormann Sectional

A world leader in garage and industrial doors, Hormann offer the most complete range of insulated sectional doors for commercial and domestic use, with the highest levels of attention to safety, quality and technology.

The available sizes are Standard UK sizes, European metric sizes and purpose sizes, in nearly all the various steel and timber designs. The sectional door arguably offers the best value for money in terms of a modern and highly engineered product, with exceptional standards of sealing, insulation and security, making it a technically superior garage door in comparison to many other doors. With over 27 years of experience, we can assist you in acquiring the correct size and specification for your garage.

Hormann LPU 42 Video:

Watch the video below to see the benefits of a Hormann sectional door for yourself, specifically focusing on the LPU 42 insulated model.


LPU M panelled sectional door


Domestic sectional doors can be ordered from 2 metres wide to 6500mm wide, with heights available up to 3000mm for most panel designs, in many of the designs that are available. If your garage has a particularly wide opening, we also offer a ‘Combi door’ which is, in essence, a commercial door specification for the operating mechanism but uses domestic insulated steel panels; this door is available up to a massive 7.5 metres wide!


You are able to choose from a wide selection of variations in the classic Horizontal Ribbed, Smooth Un-ribbed, or Georgian panelled designs, each one creating a very different visual appearance. Some of the designs are only available in either the single skin LTE 40 range or the double skinned 42mm LPU 40 range.  There is also a complete range of 'designer sectional doors', which have artistic design elements incorporated into the door panels, all of which are LPU 40 insulated panels with optional glazing elements.

The high quality LTH 40 timber door range that Hormann offer again has 2 basic designs - the classic horizontal boarded design and the 'V panel' raised and fielded panel design. The clever use of computer factory routing in either Nordic pine or Hemlock timber, however, means you can create your own garage door design - a service offered by Hormann from their factory in Germany.

Some standard designs are also readily available, a good example being the superb design 405, recreating a double leaf barn door effect with optional false hinges to complete the overall aesthetic. 


Hormann steel sectional doors are finished in white polyester paint (RAL 9016) as standard - a finish which, if you desire, can be lightly rubbed down and painted. Most people do not opt to do this as Hormann offer a comprehensive factory finished RAL colour range as an optional finish to the exterior, with over 400 RAL colours to choose from!

A limited range of standard RAL colours are also available at special prices, with faster delivery times from Hormann - 15 colours to choose.
The door panels also have subtle differences in that all of the designs are either a woodgrain or silkgrain finish, woodgrain being as it describes - with a robust, woodgrain structured surface and silkgrain a smooth elegant surface with extra reinforcement in the exterior face of this option.

Sectional overhead door insideHormann offer 2 basic operating gear types - tension springs (Z track) in the side channels for doors up to 3048mm wide and overhead torsion springs (N Track) for doors over 3048mm wide.

Side tension springs, or 'Z track' sectional doors, only require 100mm of headroom as the curve in the tracking can be a tighter radius than the larger doors.

Torsion springs or 'N track' sectional doors require 210mm of headroom as the spring mechanism is directly above the top door panel and the track curve is not as tight.

All the larger sectional door systems have a low headroom option (L Track), where the torsion spring is relocated to the rear of the horizontal tracks and the headroom requirement reduced to as little as 100mm. Final drive-through heights are usually comprimised slightly with reduced headroom options as the bottom door panel section cannot be pulled fully clear of the opening - it is however always usually higher than an equivalent height up and over door.

Special requirements can be accommodated for; extra high tracking is available if the ceiling is higher than average, keeping the space in your garage clear. 

This gear is known a 'H track' gear which is available to order and priced accordingly. This will put the horizontal tracks as high as possible in your garage, optimising the space and ensuring the tracks miss an obstacle such as a gas meter, boiler, etc. 

'Combi sectional doors', with the commercial torsion spring system, require 390mm as standard as the spring is a lot bigger as it assists the weight of the larger doors (up to 7500mm wide). A considerable amount of attention has to be given to the spring support fixing points with this gear as the tension in the springs is much higher.

For many installations, internal restrictions may prevent full width or full height sectional doors being used, meaning infills and trims will be required to seal up the sides or the top or both of course. Hormann have many different products to enable this to be as professional as possible where required, rather than using timber or Upvc sections that will not match exactly.

Hormann designer sectional garage doorFeatures

Hormann sectional garage doors feature the following - as standard:

Fully sealed perimeter - with rubber seals and close fitting to steel framework. The large bottom rubber seal on a level floor will prevent leaves, dust, etc. from entering.

Vertical operation - allowing you to park your vehicle right up to the door, inside or out, while still being able to open and close it.

Excellent security - provided by 5 encapsulated rollers in steel hinges either side of a standard door and a rotary latch locking mechanism with europrofile cylinder locking as standard - of course, the double skinned doors are very strong against physical attacks.

Easy operation - due to the spring mechanisms assisting the door during most of the operation, unlike an up and over type, the doors are surprisingly easy to operate.

Paint finishes - standard on all doors, inside and out, with bright white (RAL9016) finish externally and off white (RAL 9002) internally - no need to paint. A new range of silkgrain finishes are now available including the superb 'Titan' finish.

Remote control ready - due to the retractable tracking mechanism of a sectional door they are ready to have a standard boom electric operator fitted with no further adaptions required.

Full drive through - no reduction in the drivethrough width - a 2286mm wide door gives you 2286mm when open. With the N track mechanism you get the full height and only lose approx. 50mm on the Z track mechanism when fully open.

10 year guarantee - on the entire door and mechanism.

Options -  Many optional additions are available in the sectional door range including:

» Windows for all designs in single and double glazed units

» Handle materials and colour options

»Headroom arrangements including high lift tracking for high ceilings 

»Bespoke timber designs, to your drawing design 

»Matching Front Entrance Doors and side doors

»Pedestrian access door inside main garage door 

»Extra wide doors with industrial specification operating gear 



Sectional garage doors provide a secure, well-sealed door solution for any garage opening, with the vertical opening being a major benefit for shorter driveways. The unrestricted drive through when the door is open is a must for today’s wider vehicle designs. The all-round sealing is the perfect protection against the British weather, whilst the double skinned door panels offer maximum insulation and strength for long lasting use and excellent security. The superbly engineered gear mechanism allows for very easy opening and closing when manually operated. Ultimately, there are many reasons why it is the perfect garage door, and it being engineered to such a high standard is just the icing on the cake; it is a real high quality door mechanism.

When you consider all of the benefits that a sectional door can offer it is often hard to even consider any other type of garage door. Additionally, it is also excellent value for money compared to any garage door the same size, especially when you consider all of the standard features not available on other doors.

All Hormann sectional garage doors, at any size, can be manually or electronically operated with a massive choice of control mechanisms from basic remote control to finger readers, timers, card readers and so on. You can create your own unique door with a tailor-made access control system to suit your lifestyle and family environment.
