Advantages of any Sectional Garage Door

Sectional garage doors fit almost anywhere and save precious space. A Hormann sectional door always fits perfectly and leaves you with a lot of free space in front and immediately behind the door panels.

There are many distinct details which distinguish sectional garage doors from other garage door types. You will appreciate the practical advantages and high levels of security every day, the reassuring click when the lock engages and the whole door feels totally solid in the aperture.
You can conveniently drive into your garage and have more space inside and in front of the garage with the vertical opening.
Treat yourself to this comfort and convenience whilst getting better weathersealing and security.

sectional doors give better drive through widthWider passage The additional passage width makes driving in and out of the garage a simplistic task. There is often a matter of millimetres with older up-and-over doors, however a Hormann sectional door can offer up to 140mm of extra drive through space making it easier to park and a whole lot more if you move an exisitig door from inbetween and fit the new sectional door on the inside face. This is a decisive advantage for larger cars, vans and off-road vehicles.

Space-saving Sectional garage doors open vertically and are suspended under the ceiling to sustain additional space. This constructional principle means you can take full advantage of the space inside and in front of the garage for parking and manouvering. The internal tracks also run higher than up and over doors, so are out of the way in most garages and not obtrusive.

Sealed all-round Flexible and weather-resistant seals on all four sides of Hormann's sectional doors protect it against both the wind and rain. The bottom seal can easily accommodate slight irregularities in the floor thanks to its large-sized profile lip.

Variable fitting The shape of the garage opening is not of significant importance. Whether the shape is square or angled with segmental or full centred arch, a Hormann sectional garage door can always give a perfect fit as it does not have to travel through the garage aperture at any point when fitted behind the opening.
