Hormann Door Styles

When choosing your up and over door whether it be steel, timber or glass reinforced plastic, you need to ask yourself the following questions:

Do I want a canopy or fully retractable door?

Do I want a factory primed or factory fully finished door?

Do I want two or four point locking?

Do I want a remote controlled operator?

Remote controlled electric operation

If you've ever had to leave your car on a cold, wet, windy day to fumble with your garage door keys, you can probably imagine the convenience and luxury a remote control system could bring to your life. All Hórmann garage doors are available with remote control so you can open your garage at the push of a button, from the comfort of your car. The door will open automatically, a light will come on in the garage to welcome you home and you can close the door behind you before leaving the safety of your car. Remote control adds perceived value to your home and you will be pleasantly surprised by how affordable it is.


Caring for your garage door

Your up and over garage door will give you years of service if you follow these simple routines. Ensure that all pivot points, bearings, springs and rollers are oiled. DO NOT oil tracks. Ensure that there is no debris or dirt on or around the door so that rain water can drain away easily and that normal air circulation will allow the door to dry in good weather.

AT LEAST EVERY 3 MONTHS: Check, and if necessary, oil all pivot points, bearings, springs and rollers. DO NOT oil the track. EVERY YEAR: Check the following:The fixings between the door, and the buildings are solid and secure. The door lifting gear and its fixed points to the door and frame are solid and secure. All pivot points, bearings, springs and rollers are oiled.

Steel garage doors

If your steel door is supplied in a factory primed finish, it will require painting with a good quality semi-gloss or matt exterior household paint and appropriate undercoat as soon as possible after installation. The primer coat is applied as a base coat only.

Before applying the paint ensure the surface of the door has been washed down using a solution of water and non-abrasive detergent, (such as washing up liquid).Then thoroughly wash the door with warm water a number of times removing any evidence of the detergent.
Fully factory finished doors should require no further painting.To help preserve the appearance of the door periodically wash with warm water.

GRP garage doors

Gloss white GRP one-piece doors are supplied in a fully finished condition and require no further painting or treatment. To help preserve the appearance it is recommended that the door is washed down with warm water and a non-abrasive detergent. To help preserve the appearance of Timber effect GRP one-piece doors a periodic dust down with a soft bristle brush followed by a wash down with warm water is recommended.

Please Note: remote control operators are generally fitted to fully retractable doors*
