Break-in resistance of Hörmann garage doors has been recognised
The break in resistance of Hörmann automatic sectional garage doors has been recognised by the award of Secured by Design status. The accreditation applies to the combination of Hörmann insulated or solid timber sectional doors with the Series 3 BiSecur ProMatic or SupraMatic operators.
The double skinned, insulated EPU and LPU doors both feature solid, CFC free polyurethane insulation that adds strength and rigidity to the door. With the EPU door the insulation is 42mm thick at the section joints and 20mm thick across each panel. For the LPU door this insulation is a constant 42mm thick, leading to even better thermal values.
The LTH solid timber doors are offered in a number of styles and buyers also have the option to have their own individual design recreated by Hörmann. These doors can be ordered in either Nordic Pine or Hemlock.
The ProMatic and SupraMatic operators which are part of the Secured by Design accreditation both feature a mechanical lock. This unique automatic latching system makes it almost impossible to lever these doors open, and as it is a purely mechanical system, it remains fully functional even in the event of a power failure.
A wide range of styles and colours and even bespoke timber designs ensure there are doors to suit any home or project. Additionally matching entrance doors are available including the Hörmann ThermoPro range which also has Secured by Design accreditation.
Secured by Design is the initiative from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that aims to reduce crime through effective environmental design. The scheme also calls for the installation of security products that meet police-approved standards. Manufacturers and installers whose products have been certified by an accredited testing body to the specified standards, can apply for SBD membership and licence to utilise the scheme’s logo.
