Esh Build Developments commission ABi Garage Doors to install timber sectional doors in York.

Esh Build Developments Timber Sectional Garage Doors

The Brief

We were approached by Esh Build Developments to supply and install solid timber garage doors for an exclusive development of five luxury homes at Shipton Street, York. The doors needed to match specific architectural designs and would be fully automatic.

Our Solution

The architectural plans required specific designs for the garage doors to compliment the modern aesthetics of the build. Working closely with the architects and the Cedar Door Company we produced a final design of bespoke sectional cedar wood doors. The doors were custom manufactured to specific sizes and designs. Cedar is a naturally tough timber and all the Cedar Door Company’s products are traditionally constructed with morticed and tenoned joints providing a very durable product of exceptionally high quality.

Solid Timber doors tend to be a little heavier than metal doors so we recommended the Hormann SupraMatic P series 3 automatic door operators. The Supramatic P operators have a peak force of 1000N and are designed specifically for use with bigger and heavier doors. They have also proved to be extremely reliable and exceed all the safety and performance requirements of the European standard 13241-1.


We liaised with the site foreman to arrange a suitable fitting time and cover all the health and safety requirements. As there were a number of contractors working on the site we had to ensure the installation of the doors fitted in with Esh Build’s schedule. The installation was completed in 3 days.
