Hormann Garage Door Repairs. Hormann garage doors are among the most popular and reliable garage doors sold in the UK. Their robust construction and wide range of popular designs make them a favorite with architects and developers. However even the best garage doors require regular maintenance. Without such maintenance problems can occur with the garage door cables, spring or steel cable drums. Often the first sign of a problem is that the door will not close due to the anti-drop mechanism engaging. This is a safety mechanism designed to prevent the garage door falling down when either the cables or spring fails.

Hormann Garage Door Repairs. Hormann garage doors have over the years become one of the UK’s leading garage door manufacturers. The garage door panels that they use are robust, well finished and should last for years. The lifting mechanism used by Hormann is also very well made and when properly maintained should give many years of trouble free service. However, as with all working mechanisms, if they are not regularly maintained they could fail. Normally it takes little more than regular lubrication and the occasional re-tensioning of the spring to keep them in good working order. If the spring is allowed to lose tension, the garage door will not open as easily and the garage door cables can become tangled when the door is lifted quicker than the spring can pick up the cables. This can ofton result in the anti-drop mechanism kicking -in and the garage door becoming stuck in the open position.
This Hormann sectional garage door has Georgian square panels that can complement a variety of houses and buildings. This garage door is made up of 4 panels that are hinged together and sit in a continuous track/runner that runs vertically up the sides of the garage door and then bends to run horizontally back into the garage. The Hormann sectional garage door has 42mm thick insulated panels and forms a good seal with the floor thanks to the thick rubber buffer on the bottom panel. There are also rubber seals around the sides and top of the garage door. Because the garage door is vertically opening and does not swing out, it is possible to park the car tight to the garage door which is a major benefit if your drive is short. The Hormann sectional garage door is very secure and qualifies for as a secure by design product when coupled with a Hormann electric garage door opener.
The Thermaglide roller shutter was a roller shutter garage door marketed by Cardale garage doors. The main problems that occur with roller shutters can normally be attributed to the control box, the safety system or the built-in electric tubular motor. Roller shutters can also suffer with the hanging straps breaking or coming detached from the main shaft. Generally the components of most roller shutters are made to a standard so many of the parts are inter-changeable with spares from another roller shutter manufacturer or with generic parts specially manufactured for the purpose. It is therfore possible to repair most makes of roller shutters even if the manufacturers or suppliers are no longer in business.
