Garage Doors Paddock Wood Kent. These Garador, Sutton, steel garage doors were chosen by the client to replace a pair of drab garage doors that were nearly 40years old . Their peeling paint and poor operation were letting the look of the whole property down. These new garage doors were fully finished in Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) and were a perfect match with the customers newly installed front door and windows. This was an affordable garage door to give the property a more contemporary look and a whole facelift.

Hormann Garage Door Repairs

Hormann Garage Door Repairs

Hormann Garage Door Repairs

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.

Hormann Sectional Garage Door Georgian Panelled

Hormann Sectional Garage Door

Hormann Sectional Garage Door

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.

Thermaglide Roller Shutter Repair

Thermaglide Roller Shutter

Thermaglide Roller Shutter

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.

Roller Shutter Garage Door Motors

Roller Shutter Garage Door Motors

SWS securoglide roller shutters are amongst the most popular roller shutters in the country. They are fitted with Somfy motors which are renowned for their reliability, but like all electrical appliances they do not last forever. We were instructed to replace a roller shutter garage door motor in Maidstone, Kent. The existing garage door motor had been in place for around 10 years, but had now began to struggle when lifting the roller shutter. Once on site the door was dismantled and a new electric garage door motor was fitted. The door was re-programmed and left in good working order.

Garage Doors East Sussex

This Hormann garage door was fitted to a property in Heathfield East Sussex. The garage door is constructed of steel but has a Decograin finish that gives a finish similar to that used by double glazing companies. In this particular case, the property had windows in a rosewood/mahogany finish and this garage door was a very good match. The garage door was also supplied with a similar coloured steel frame and a rosewood UPVC trim. This type of garage door can be manually operated or automated. The security on the manual version can be boosted by the addition of 4 point locking.
