The Series 2000 Range
This range has been created exclusively for the UK market and is produced in imperial dimensions and three gear options, with superb designs for every style of property.
Canopy doors are the traditional garage doors that allow extra drive-through width, not achieved with the retractable door. This is because the lifting mechanism is contained above the door. The maximum size limit is 8ft x 7ft. Canopy doors are available in an electric garage door design, but require a “bow arm” which can make the door a little jumpy and reduce drive through height. If an electric up and over door is required, we recommend the retractable design. So at the quoting stage if we ask if you plan to make your door automatic in the future its not to up sell (we don’t do that) its to make sure you get the right door for the future too.
All canopy doors are available in a choice of steel, timber, GRP (glass reinforced polyester) and ABS (the same stuff car bumpers are made of!) with a variety of finishes, glazing and handles. You can even design your own door with the open for infill. There are also matching side doors available. If your after extra security there is also the optional 4 point locking fitted at factory or retrospectively to suitable Hormann up and over doors.

Retractable Garage Door
Retractable doors are similar to canopy doors in style and finish but have a different lifting mechanism contained at both sides of the door. Ideally suited for electric operators, which can also be fitted retrospectively to suitable doors. Sizes from 6ft 6 x 6ft 6 to 14ft x 7ft. The retractable garage door also offers the option of having “retractable plus” gearing which means there is a bend in the metal next to where the springs are to allow for wing mirror room. The optional 4 point locking is also available for this door should you need something more secure than the 2 point locking.
