An external installation in Bradford – Hörmann RollMatic made to measure aluminium insulated roller door

Hormann RollMatic Made to Measure Aluminium Insulated Roller Door

The Brief

This customer wanted to replace their existing roller door. The door had been in use for quite a few years and was, unfortunately, beyond economical repair. The existing door was mounted on the outside of the garage opening. Known as an ‘external roller door’ this type of installation is useful if there is very limited headroom inside the garage to install the roller door mechanism. It allows the full height of the opening to be utilised.

Our Solution

The customer wanted to maintain the full opening height available so we needed to install a new roller type door externally – in the same way that the old door was installed. Here at ABi we work with all the leading roller door manufacturers and after discussing the options with the customer we decided on the Hörmann RollMatic product. The RollMatic uses Hörmann’s own automation technology and the door can be opened and closed by hand when set to manual mode, as opposed to having to be ‘cranked’ with a handle.


After discussing the installation options with the customer we decided to install a door that was wide enough to overlap the brickwork up to the edge of the building. As this was an external roller door covering the brick provides a much neater and cleaner finish. The installation day was booked and the door was installed and commissioned in a single day.
