This elegant looking Teckentrup sectional door was recently fitted for a customer in the lovely area of Padfield, just near Glossop. It is a large, automatic double door in a rosewood finish.
The project was quite a transformation to the garage, which was previously a double garage with two separate doors and a stone pillar in the middle of the opening. Working alongside the builder we use, the brick pillar was taken down and relevant lintels installed so that the opening was suitable for one large automatic door.
We first had to remove all the shuttering that was boarding the opening up, after that we proceeded to install a sturdy timber frame, being careful to keep the legs off the ground, so it won't soak up water and rot at the bottom. This frame was eventually covered neatly in rosewood uPCV and sealed off from the weather.
The Teckentrup sectional door was chosen due to it being able to handle such large garage door opening. These garage doors are of the highest quality and have many handy features, such as being well insulated and closing to the floor, so there is no gap under the door like with an up and over door. They are highly secure and feature an internal light when in use and stays on for a couple of minutes. The system is built to last, and with some simple maintenance will last many years.
As you can see from the pictures, Teckentrup sectional door are usually divided into four panels which are hinged and open into a track system in the garage, the spring system is divided into a number of separate springs to avoid too much tension on them.
We find that customers love these doors once installed. They are a good choice for anyone wanting extra security or looking to keep the house warmer if the garage leads into it, or if there are rooms above. Feedback tells us that these doors do indeed make a difference.
