A recent installation of a Teckentrup sectional garage door for a customer in Heswall, Wirral. Sectional garage doors are amongst the finest garage doors available. This garage door was chosen in a white silk grain finish, which will stay looking nice for many years.
Our first task was the removal of the old door and timber frame. We could then clean up the brickwork of old sealants and start to plan where exactly to fit the new door within the opening. We then fixed two sturdy timbers to the brickwork for the door to be installed to. These timbers were sat off the ground by about 30mm to avoid any damp being soaked up.
We could then start to install the main framework of the door and interior track and spring systems. The tracks are supported by a number of well placed sturdy fixing points into ceiling joists and the rear of the tracks are fixed to the walls. When everything is in place, the weight and load of the door is nicely spread evenly over these fixing points.
The automation system is installed, then the panels are carefully lifted into place and the rollers and hinges are all connected. The door can then be attached to the spring system and the motor, which goes through a sequence of balancing and weighing the door to provide optimum motor operation.
While this is being done, we are also finishing off the outside of the door. The door sits behind the timber frame, we clad this frame in white (uv stable) uPVC. This gives a nice feature to the installation and helps to avoid the whole thing looking too flat. The job is then sealed up in a suitable colour, on this brickwork, we chose a buff colour (see closeup pic). We know how much people love their homes and we take pride in our work.
This door will provide many benefits over the old door. Teckentrup sectional doors are of the highest standards in door technology. The panels are fully insulated and the door seals neatly to the floor with no gaps, unlike most up and over doors require. Customers who’s garage lead into their house tell us that it makes a big difference after having an insulated garage door. The door is simple to use, with just the press of a button, the door will open/close and a temporary light on the operator with illuminate the area for a couple of minutes.
