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.
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.
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.
Garage door repairs Tunbridge Wells Kent. This garage door repair involved a Westland Garador F3C. This is a very old garage door that has a garage door spring that runs within the leg of a metal garage door frame. Unlike the Garador MK4, the spring within the steel frame is connected to a cable that lifts the garage door. Not only is the spring liable to break but more often the problem lies with the garage door cable breaking. It is a very complicated procedure to replace the cable but it is possible and the replacement cables are still available.

Garage Doors Crowborough:The requirements of this customer were to have an insulated garage door. They also wanted a garage door in the very fashionable colour, anthracite grey (RAL 7016). This colour garage door is a very contemporary look and matches window frames supplied by many of the leading manufacturers. The garage was used for storage and as a workshop. It was therefore important that it was dry and could be kept warm.

Garage Door Repair New Romney Kent. Many of the older double sized Cardale garage doors were counterbalanced with a pair of large black springs. Over time these springs can break, normally due to metal fatigue at the point of the loop. In this instance one of the Cardale garage door springs had broken and left the garage door too heavy to lift manually. The garage door springs on both sides were replaced because if the springs are the same age, there is a likelihood that the other spring could break in the near future, resulting in another repair cost.
Cardale garage doors are often the favoured garage door of the developer. Many new developments in the Eastbourne area are fitted with Cardale garage doors. The canopy garage door relies on cables to lift the garage door. Exposure to the elements and salt air of the coastal regions can cause corrosion of the garage door lifting cables. When these cables eventually break they can leave the garage door in an open position as the anti-drop mechanism prevent the garage door from closing. If the cables are rusted or frayed it is often a good policy to replace them before they break.
