Hormann Sectional Garage Doors


Hormann sectional garage doors are available from 2000mm wide up to 6500 mm wide in most of the different panel designs, more size restrictions apply to the LTE42 single skin doors as they do not have the ultimate panel strength of the double skinned LPU42 doors. Heights are available up to 3000mm. If you have a very wide garage Hormann can also offer a 'Combi door' which in essence is a commercial door specification for the mechanical operating mechanism but uses domestic design insulated steel panels, this sectional garage door is available up to a massive 7.5 metres wide!!

The Hormann sectional garage doors sold through our current online system are the domestic UK sized doors only, if you require larger doors, European sizes or different panel designs then please call or e-mail us with your requirements as there are so many variations.

hormann sectional garage doors

Hormann sectional garage doors are all ordered using the internal frame opening size but the imperial order references for UK sized doors are to the nearest feet and inches size to the exact metric size. Eg. A 7'0" x 7'0" order size Hormann sectional in metric is actually a 2134mm wide x 2125mm high inbetween the steel fixing frame. The overall width and height with the fixing frame is always bigger than the order size, and every Hormann sectional door will be supplied with a steel fascia 90mm in depth matching the door colour or finish chosen to help finish installations where the height is a little higher than the ordering size.

Go to our DIY guide section for more information on sizing. Remember - sectional garage doors do not go through the opening during opening and closing and can be installed on smaller or larger garage openings than the actual order size, you may not need a made to measure size!

Hormann Door Panel Designs

The designs available may at first seem limited as it appears to be either a Horizontal ribbed design or a 'Georgian' panelled design. It is true that sectional door designs in steel are restricted due to the operating mechanism of the door i.e. split panels rising vertically - however look closer and you will see variations in each design creating a very different classic visual appearance. There is also a complete range of 'designer doors' in the LPU42 range with artistic design stainless steel and glazing elements incorporated into the door panels. These doors have a range of matching front entrance doors as well to create a perfect co-ordinated appearance.

The LTH42 timber sectional door range offered by Hormann again has 2 basic designs - the classic horizontal boarded design and the 'V panel' raised and fielded panel design - however the clever use of computer factory routing in either Nordic pine or Hemlock timber means you can create your own sectional 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 design 405, recreating a double leaf barn door effect with optional false hinges to finish the overall effect.

Operating Mechanisms

Hormann offer two basic operating mechanism types - tension springs (Z track) in the side channels for doors up to 3048mm wide and overhead tension springs (N track) for doors over 3048mm wide.

Typical N track sectional door with operatorSide sprung or 'Z track' sectional doors only require 100mm of headroom clearance as the curve in the tracking is tighter than the double doors and the springs are situated in the side channels.

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

Combi doors with the commercial torsion spring system will require 390mm (more on higher doors) as standard as the torsion spring is a lot bigger to assist the weight of the larger doors.

All the sectional garage door systems wider than 3048mm can have an optional low headroom (L Track) mechanism supplied where the torsion spring is relocated from the front to the rear of the horizontal guide tracks and the headroom requirement reduced to as little as 115mm. Final drivethrough heights are usually comprimised slightly with reduced headroom options as the bottom door panel cannot be pulled fully clear of the opening - it is however always higher than an equivalent height up and over door type.

Hormann sectional garage doors will give you the following - as standard:

Full drive through width with a sectional doorWhen you consider all the benefits a Hormann sectional garage door can offer it is hard to even consider any other type of garage door. The sectional door is also excellent value for money compared to any garage door the same size especially when you consider all the standard features not available on other doors.

Fully sealed perimeter - with rubber seals and close fitting to steel framework. The large bottom rubber seal on a level floor will prevent leaves and dust, etc.
Vertical operation - meaning you can park your vehicle right up to the door inside or out and still open and close it.
Excellent security - provided by five 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.
Anti-finger-trap protection - patented Hormann design in the door panel sections preventing entrapment of fingers during operation, inside and out.
Powdercoat finishes - standard on all doors inside and out with the bright white (RAL9016) finish externally and off white (RAL 9002) internally - no need to paint.
Quality components - all hinges, rollers, tracks, springs, etc. are all zinc or galvanised plated as standard to ensure longevity.
Remote control ready - due to the retractable tracking mechanism of a sectional door they are ready to have any standard boom operator fitted with no further adaptions.
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 garage door from an established, worldwide renowned company.
