A recent installation by our team of a Hörmann sectional, automatic garage door for a customer in Diggle, Oldham. The door was chosen in white silk grain finish, with a black frame to compliment the front door colours. We had some nice weather and lovely views on this job too 🙂
We started by removing the old door which had an old garage door operator and was in need of replacing. Unlike the old door, this new Hörmann sectional door is fully insulated. It opens vertically which means a car can be parked close to the door due to it having no kick-out. The door has a heavy duty bottom rubber seal that provides a barrier to the floor to stop any weather and leaves gathering in the garage (a common problem with up and over doors).
After removing the old door and frame, we cleaned up the stonework opening and could then start to build up the framework and tracks of the new sectional door. Great care is taken so that the frame and tracks are all level, plumb and fixed securely. When the track system is fitted, we can then install the actual garage door panels and link them to the spring system and operating system.
A Hörman Supramatic automation system was used to power this door, they are highly reliable and very simple to use. All you have to do is push a button on your remote control fob. Other features of this door include a safety system that will stop and reverse if the door comes into contact with anything. This is to avoid any accidents with automated doors. As mentioned, they are insulated and this customer will notice that the room above the door will benefit from this too, for example.
We provide a service plan for any door we fit which will keep your new door and its safety featured maintained on an annual or bi-annual basis, including a full check of all door features, fixings, lubrication and door cleaning. All garage door require a certain amount of attention to keep them running smooth and avoiding stress on parts etc.
