UK dealers among the first to visit Hörmann’s flagship factory


(James and Luke from ABi Garage Doors set off for Germany.)

Hörmann recently invited us along on a trip to Germany, to spend some time looking round their Ichtershausen and Brandis factories.

The visit was extremely informative and it was amazing to see the scale of their operation and attention to detail that Hörmann demonstrates; not only in their product development but in their production processes.

Whilst we think our product knowledge is second to none, seeing firsthand how the products are manufactured and assembled gave us a valuable insight into the finer details of these doors.

Here is Hörmann’s official press release for the trip;

Hormann 2004 Georgian design retractable plus door installed in Bradford


The Brief

We were contacted by a customer who wanted to replace their existing manual up and over garage door. They were in the process of renovating the front of their concrete garage and wanted a new automatic door. Up and over garage doors come in two ‘flavours’ – canopy and retractable. Often older manual doors will be using canopy door gear. Canopy door gear is not as easy to automate and the mechanism required reduces the drive through height.

Hormann made to measure LPU40 Decograin timber effect sectional garage door installed in Leeds

The Brief

A customer wanted to replace their aging garage door. As with a lot of older door installations, the drive through width was quite tight. Vehicles have grown wider over the years, especially with the increasing popularity of 4×4’s and ‘sport utility’ or ‘crossover’ vehicles. The most common width for a single garage door was traditionally around 7ft but over the last few years 8ft wide doors have started to become much more common. The original door had an automatic operator fitted that was in good working order and the customer wanted to re use this. Insulation of the door was also a consideration as the garage leads straight into the property.
