Hörmann sectional garage doors the first with Secured by Design accreditation

The break in resistance of Hörmann automatic sectional garage doors has been recognised by the award of Secured by Design status.

The accreditation applies to the combination of Hörmann insulated or solid timber sectional doors with the Series 3 ProMatic or SupraMatic operators.

The double skinned, insulated EPU and LPU doors both feature solid, CFC free polyurethane insulation that adds strength and rigidity to the door. With the EPU door the insulation is 42mm thick at the section joints and 20mm thick across each panel. For the LPU door this insulation is a constant 42mm thick, leading to even better thermal values.

The LTH solid timber doors are offered in a number of styles and buyers also have the option to have their own individual design recreated by Hörmann. These doors can be ordered in either Nordic Pine or Hemlock.

The ProMatic and SupraMatic operators which are part of the Secured by Design accreditation both feature a mechanical lock. This unique automatic latching system makes it almost impossible to lever these doors open, and as it is a purely mechanical system, it remains fully functional even in the event of a power failure.

An additional security feature of the latest operators is the Hörmann BiSecur system. This two-way communication between the hand transmitter and operator uses FM radio signals that rely on the same 128 bit encryption used for online banking. Not only does this system make the transmitters more secure but also means that the signal is more reliable while extending operating distances. Another benefit of the system is that it includes a remote status query. A simple push of a button will tell you whether an out of sight door is open or closed.

A wide range of styles and colours and even bespoke timber designs ensure there are doors to suit any home or project. Additionally matching entrance doors are available including the Hörmann ThermoPro range which also has Secured by Design options.
