Spotlight on Sectional doors

Sectional doors are proving to be a popular choice for many of our customer, not surprising if you consider the improved security, draft proofing and optional insulation.  A full list of pros and cons can be found on our door types page.

We thought we would put together a page with some example pricing, pictures taken during installation and other information.

There are a couple of manufacturers who sell good quality sectional doors, so we look at Hormann and Henderson in turn. 

We have more details on the Hormann doors because there is little other information online.

EcoClassic
A single skin steel door.  Only available in white.  Available in widths: 7' to 10', in 6" increments. 

EcoTherm
A double skin steel door with 20mm & 42mm insulation.  Available in 12 colours.  Available in widths: 7' to 10', in 6" increments and 12', 13', 14', 14'6" & 16'.

Series 40, LTH40
Timber sectional doors for the ultimate, natural look without compromise - available in Nordic Pine or Hemlock.  A whole range of designs are available including granite inserts which looks fantastic, you can even have your own design of profiling set into the door.  Not cheap, but if an exclusive look is you thing - grab a brochure.

Glazing:
Windows (four designs) are available as an option in the top section only.  

As an example a 7' wide EcoClassic will have four windows at 62 each = 248

A 14' wide LPU40 will have five windows at 76 each = 380

Handles:
Handles are supplied in black plastic as standard - cast Aluminium handles in a range of finishes are also available for 58.
White, rustic, silver, bronze or brass colours.


Delivery:
Delivery varies slightly depending on the size of door and options chosen, 2 to 3 weeks is common.  All doors are supplied as a flat pack and are built up on site in 5/6 hours.

Choosing the correct size:
Sectional doors fit inside the garage on the rear face of the brickwork and require 90mm of clearance on either side plus headroom clearance (the distance between the underside of the lintel and the ceiling) as detailed below:

- 100mm for EcoClassic and EcoTherm up to 10ft wide, 210mm for EcoTherm over 10ft wide, a low headroom kit is available for the EcoTherm over 10ft wide requiring 100mm clearance.
- 220mm for LTE and LPU, a low headroom kit is available requiring 125mm clearance.
- An additional 50mm should be added if you are considering automating the door.

What if your opening does not match a standard size of door?  Don't forget you can remove existing wooden frames to improve the drive through.  You have a couple of options... here is an example.

Mr Blogg's garage opening size is 7'9" wide x 7' high and he wishes to fit an EcoClassic:

Option 1 - install an 8' wide x 7' high door.  As the door fits behind the brickwork some of the door simply does not show, however, the internal garage width will need to be at least 2438mm (8') plus 2 x 90mm clearance, i.e. 2618mm.  One side must have at least 90mm clearance.  In height the clearance will need to be 2125mm (7') + 100mm clearance, i.e. 2225mm.

Option 2 - install a 7'6" wide x 7' high door.  All doors have a 90mm wide fully finished white (or brown if you order a brown door) frame which mounts to the brickwork.  The drive through width will be reduced and 1" of white frame will be visible on either side.   The internal garage width will need to be at least 2286mm (7'6") plus 2 x 90mm clearance, i.e. 2466mm.

Additional info:
Doors are made up of four sections stacked on top of each other.
A double skin of steel adds stiffness to each section and therefore makes for a more secure door. 
If a section gets damaged, then it can simply be replaced with a couple of hours work.
