Welcome to the second instalment in our exciting new series of blogs designed to make the decision process for your garage door that much easier.

The second door type that we are going to explore is the Roller Shutter. As the name would suggest these doors roll up into a box above or below the lintel. The doors are made up of narrow panels called lath that interlock with one another to enable a strong structure.
The Hormann Rollmatic comes as a complete product with the door curtain, guides rails, fascia panel and shaft cover all colour matched finished. This means your entire product is an attractive and harmonious unit.

The Hormann Rollmatic is available in eleven different colours including White, Anthracite Grey, Steel Blue and Jet Black to name a few. All standard colours are the same price. For an additional cost you can upgrade to a Decopaint or Decograin wood effect finish.
All Hormann Rollmatics are made to measure. This makes it the most ideal garage door for awkward and non-standard sized openings. Is your garage on a hill? With a Hormann Rollmatic you can have chamfered bottom profile enabling the door to sit flush with the floor and still stay secure. Rollmatics are also brilliant if you are lacking space, this is because there is no extra framework intruding into the garage as it all rolls into a box. The door can also be fitted externally, meaning the box in which the door rolls up into is on the outside of the garage, making it an ideal option for when space is extremely limited.

Roller shutter doors work on both a manual and electric setting; with electric being the most popular option. Hormann come as standard with a left-hand side motor.

The Rollmatic locks through the motor. This means when the motor is not in use you are unable to open or close the door. In order to release it into manual all you need is a manual release cord which you pull into place subsequently putting the door into manual and continue to use the door as normal. This function is essential for when you have a power cut and still need access to your garage. As standard this is placed inside your garage, but in cases where you do not have another entrance this can be fitted on the outside of you’re the garage. When you wish to lock the door, or put it back into manual you just pull the cord back into place.

Much like the Sectional Garage doors, the rollmatic comes with many safety features. The most notable being the automatic safety cut-out feature. This means should the door encounter an obstruction it will automatically cut out to prevent harm and damage.

The possibilities are quite endless when it comes to additional extras. The most notable being the option to get a matching side door. Side doors are made to look the same as the garage door to create a united look. This is a great option if your garage has an external side entrance.

Just the same as all Hormann motorised products you can easily upgrade and change your transmitter options. From extra buttons to bright colours and funky patterns for your transmitter remote. You can also go high tech with a finger print scanner that can facilitate up to 12 finger prints. If you want to go hands free you can get a transmitter remote that works via the cigarette lighter in your car.

If this sounds like the door for you give us a call on 01452 739191, email us at info@pro-door.co.uk or pop in and have a look at our show room.

Welcome to the first part of our exciting new series of blogs designed to make the decision process for your garage door that much easier.

The first door type that we are going to explore are sectional overhead doors. Known as sectional doors due to their construction, being made up of different sections which open vertically. They then run along tracks parallel to the ceiling.

Most of our domestic sectional doors are supplied by Hormann and are made up of 42mm thick foam filled insulated steel panels. Sectional doors are built to maintain a constant temperature within the garage, they are fully sealed and have an extra deep rubber seal that travels along the bottom panel. The majority of sectional doors are made from galvanised steel, making them incredibly strong and durable.

Sectional doors are also brilliant when it comes to space saving. This is because they open and close vertically meaning you can utilise all the space around the opening. They are also a brilliant solution for those with short drives as you can park your car right up against the garage door and still open it with no problem. A sectional door can also offer you full drive-through width by fitting the guides fully behind any brickwork opening due to the vertical opening.

Sectional doors can be both manual and electric although electrical is most popular. The doors work on a spring system. This provides a smooth operation which is particularly useful for larger doors. Sectional doors come with many safety features. Features include anti entrapment design between panels to prevent finger trapping. Hormann electric sectional doors also come with an automatic safety cut-out system. This system ensures that should your door encounter an obstacle the motor will cut out ensuring your safety and preventing any damage.

Hormann Sectional Doors are one of Europe’s leaders. The Hormann Sectionals come in Traffic White with a woodgrain finish as standard but you can upgrade to a further 15 colours for an extra charge. You can also have a further upgrade where by you can have a silkgrain finish or a Decograin finish. Decograin is a natural looking timber effect design with various colours and designs such as Golden Oak and Rosewood. There is also an anthracite grey metallic effect design (Titan Metallic) which is very popular at the moment.

Sectional doors come in a variety of different panel designs such as S-panelled, D-ribbed and T-ribbed. For more information on these and many more please see the Hormann website or the Hormann Sectional doors brochure.

Hormann offer timber Sectional doors, these are made from a choice of two timbers; Nordic Pine and Hemlock. The timber is impregnated at the factory in order to protect the wood. You can also choose from eight wood preservatives in different colours and finishes. Like steel sectional doors, timber doors also come in a variety of different designs.

Hormann also have a great range of additional extras, the sky really is simply the limit. From inset windows to decorative strips you can create a door that is truly unique. You can even colour match to any RAL colour matching existing windows and doors. Hormann also have a brilliant range of mobile accessories to open and close your garage door. These include in-car push buttons, key fobs and finger scanners. You can even get hand transmitters in a range of different colours and designs. So why not get his and hers remotes?

Welcome to Pro-Door. We are a family run business and have been operating for 18 years. Owned by Linda and Paul Jenkins with daughter Liz running the domestic garage door department. We have a team of nine fitters and an office team of five. Like all businesses, we do have different tiers of management, yet despite this we work together and treat one another as equals.

Based at Innsworth Technology park on the outskirts of Gloucester we serve a radius of approximately 50 miles, serving a wide area of the South West of England including Wiltshire, Herefordshire, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire, and parts of South Wales.

The majority of our team travel up from the Forest of Dean and we start at 7:30 in the morning, this means we can also attend to you nice and early.

When we started this company, our main focus was industrial doors. We supply, install, service and repair all types of doors and loading bay equipment, and pride ourselves on the service we provide. We also offer a 24-hour emergency call out service whereby we aim to fix or secure your door and make arrangements for any follow up repairs as soon as possible. No job is too big as proven by some of the blue-chip companies we have on our books.

We soon noticed a gap in the domestic garage door market and this side of the business is growing more and more. So much so we are currently redesigning our show room in order to show prospectus customers the best of what we can do. No appointment is necessary to come and view our show room and if you like what you see we can arrange for a free survey to be done where we can provide you with a quotation at the best price possible. You can also arrange to have a free survey by emailing us or calling us on 01452 739191.

As the years have gone by, we have been awarded with several industry accreditations. Such accreditations include Which Trusted Trader, Constructionline and the Safe Contractors Award. We are also members of the DHF, FSB and Citation. This means we have to comply by strict rules and regulations that ensure we work to the highest standard of health and safety and fit all our doors to the best of our ability.

This blog is completely new to the company and we are hoping it will be a great tool to provide you with updates on the company itself and show you what we have been up to. We will also be posting articles on the individual doors we supply and great team events we will be taking part in.
