Residential Sectional Overhead Door
“Efficient Garage Doors – with a Personal Signature”
A garage door has to meet many needs. It must protect your possessions, be safe and easy to operate, function reliably and require minimal maintenance.
It must also be attractive, to enhance your home so that it adds value. This requires an intelligent approach to design that provides the options that you need and choice in quality finishes that enables you to select the door that expresses your personality.
To meet these needs, every garage door that we make is built to order.
We combine practicality with aesthetics. All our doors meet the most stringent European guidelines for safety and durability. They operate dependably in all weathers, including wind, rain and extremes of temperature.
Multiple panel styles, colours, surface textures or designs are available. It’s your choice, whether you want something bold and modern or more traditional we can engineer the door that will suit your taste and property.
If you have an old tilting garage door you know the problems. Runners stick, a huge effort is needed to start the door moving and the whole operation is cumbersome, noisy and unpredictable. The R60 and E80 guide rail systems solve these problems. The system requires no structural change and only needs 60mm of top clearance. The long life guide rail system combines corrosion resistant galvanised steel vertical and horizontal rails with a curved aluminium transition piece. This is Smart Connection: a patented technology that provides smooth, almost silent, door movement on rails that are resistant to wear. Select R60 for manually operation or electrically operated lift with the E60 option.
Galvanised steel torsion springs are used to offset the weight of the door, reducing the effort required. We use a minimum of two springs per door, but may install up to four on larger doors.
Garages are common targets for criminals. To secure your door we install SGK locks that are tested and certified by the foundation for facade element quality. Electrically operated doors also provide a further safeguard with an anti-lift device to prevent the door being manually lifted.
Door panels are foam insulated to reduce heat loss, condensation and sound transmission. In addition, 30mm EPDM rubber seals ensure effective closure preventing air, rain and blown-snow ingress around the door perimeter to create a more stable environment inside the garage.
All doors include edge protection so that fingers cannot be trapped or pinched between panels. In addition all doors include a device to stop sudden closure in the event of mechanical failure, such as the failure of a door spring. All electrically operated doors also have a force limiter. This will detect if there is any obstruction and reverse movement to avoid damage or injury. The steel door, with fire retardant and CFC free foam insulation, is inherently fire resistant.
Door panels are fabricated from strong horizontal 40mm steel sandwich panels with an extra thick steel skin. These are galvanised for long-life corrosion protection that will be effective even if the outer decorative finish is scratched or damaged.
High Line and Wood Line
“A Choice of Finishes to Suit Any Home”
Your garage door needs to be in harmony with your home so we have multiple options for door finishes.
High Line panels offer an almost infinite choice of long life colour finishes that will maintain their vibrancy for years. With four panels and three surface textures, the options are even greater.
To add character and personality we have a range of realistic wood finishes and textured surfaces. Choose the wood effect that suits you property – perhaps fully finished to look like craftsman built door, or a weathered finish to give a more characterful appearance.
Whatever finish you choose you have the assurance that your door has the strength of steel and will give many years of service.
Design Line creates an opportunity to make a bold architectural statement.
Design-Line Umbra has a pronounced pattern of lines and embossment – micro-profiling – to create a door of striking appearance. Four colour finishes are available, pure white (RAL9010), silver (RAL9006), aluminium grey (RAL9007) and anthracite grey (RAL7016).
Design-Line Antara has a modern appearance in keeping with the latest architectural trends. This is a textured finish in an attractive anthracite colour.
Design-Line Nature is created to give a tranquil natural appearance. Finished in silver with an irregular pattern and texture the design harmonises with the environment.
Top Line – ultimate creative freedom
The aluminium top line series offers doors that are light, strong and corrosion resistant. A full-framed door within which solid or glazed panels can be installed, the door offers almost unlimited creative possibilities so that users can personalise their design.
With an outstanding palette of colours available you can create any mood you want. You can go for a door in one colour or mix and match panels of different colours to create designs that make subtle or sensational statement.
Options and Accessories
Save time and effort with fully motorised operation. This provides effortless opening without leaving the car and permits other automation possibilities such as interlinking to floodlights, courtesy lights, alarms and other systems.
All panels are finished in a durable white top coat, but other colours can be applied from an almost unlimited palette to give a flat mirror polished surface.
As an alternative to flat colour we can also offer a choice of 20 attractive stucco finishes with horizontal lining.
Every door is built to order and subject to close quality control at each stage of manufacture. Only quality materials are used that are carefully inspected before manufacturing starts.
Many of the production processes are automated using precision equipment that ensure components are consistently produced to accurate dimensions. This results in doors that fit, function efficiently and will continue to provide high performance for many years.
