French Patio Doors generally tend to narrow and high, the door is equipped with panels that are very large.
Features bestowed from the door of France is usually installed without the center piece between them. This project was one of my personal favorites because the barn that I had the opportunity to work on was originally built around the time of the Revolutionary War. The smaller door measures approximately 4’ wide by 7’ tall and the larger door measures 8 ?‘ by 8 ?‘. Unfortunately we made the doors in December of 2011 and could not get pictures until the spring of 2012 so the paint is dirty and a couple of wear marks can be seen, which is to be expected in a working barn environment.
If you are interested in sliding barn doors for the exterior or interior of your home, garage or barn please contact us. Hormann have one of the single largest range of high quality one piece up and over garage doors available either from their UK sized Series 2000 range. The Series 2000 up and over garage doors fall into two main categories for the type of operation - canopy or retractable. The illustrations lower down this page show both garage door types with the the optional steel fixing subframe option. Always remember that any up and over garage door requires a fixing sub frame - usually either in timber or steel - it will not fit directly to any structure without the sub frame and should not be attempted! The up and over garage door is still the most versatile when it comes to materials and designs.
Hormann produce the highest quality galvanised steel garage doors available with all the pressing and assembling from a dedicated factory in Germany. Hormann GRP (fibreglass) garage doors are produced using the tried and tested steel 'open for infill' system which then has a high quality GRP panel inserted and secured into it.
Just like the GRP doors the Hormann timber up and over garage doors use the steel box section chassis system as the basis for a very high quality door. The retractable garage door is fast becoming the most popular type of up and over garage door mechanism in the UK, its name derived from the garage door panel retracting fully into the garage when open.
The retractable mechanism can take much heavier loads with tension springs at the sides easily increased in size and strength.
Steel garage doors are powdercoat primed in white as standard from the factory and are nowadays available in several optional RAL colours.
The most recent innovation has to be the Decograin finishes which are attractive laminate foils applied to the outside face of the door panel to simulate different attractive wood finishes, these are very effective and come with a 10 year guarantee. GRP (fibreglass) doors are available in ever changing finished woodgrain colours and are all hand finished so never expect quite the same finish as a sample you may obtain! Automating a canopy type up and over garage door will always require the use of a bow arm converter if installing with a traditional boom type operator. A fully retractable up and over garage door is always preferable on larger width garage doors, if the option is available, as a bow arm is then not necessary.
The range of access controls available today are vast with wall mounted internal and external access controls and a selection of remote control devices to cover all requirements. To view the whole range of Hormann remote control accessories, view the Hormann Remote Control Operators page. Hormann produce a range of steel and timber side hinged doors to match the majority of up and over garage doors from the UK and European range as well as front entrance doors matching their unique range of European sized N80 and DF98 garage doors in timber and steel. The garage side doors are standard or purpose made sizes as required and are white powdercoated as standard from the factory with a standard steel fixing frame. When talking about up and over garage door sizes the reference is always to the internal sub frame dimensions. Sub fixing frame sizes themselves vary depending on the gear and manufacturer required – so beware of overall size dimensions! Many diverse European metric sizes are available from Hormann as well as purpose made sizes - call for details.


Hormann up and over garage doors with fixing sub frames can be installed either inbetween or behind the structural garage opening - butnot in front!

The doors are attached to the sides of the opening by a pair of buttocks, and usually hinge swings inward from the building. You will feel that your home is no delimiter or liaison between the outside with the inside. The one piece panel structure means that doors can be made from steel, fibreglass (GRP) and most types of timber. Their durable construction is a point of paramount significance and is further complemented by their low-maintenance qualities and competitive price. The component parts are shipped to Leicestershire to be assembled into complete garage doors which are fully prepared to install; the handle being the only part fitted on site after fixing the door and gear to the structural opening. This system ensures no warping can occur like on some GRP garage doors when there are large temperature changes or exposure to sun over a period of time. The preferred timber for longevity and flexibility in colour staining is Cedarwood and this is the timber used for the entire range.
The door is balanced and assisted by torsion springs positioned above the door panel on the head of the fixing frame lifting the door panel by a pair of cables attached to a roller either side of the door. It is the mechanism that will convert easily and safely into electric operation with the least equipment required. The best retractable garage doors have no cables internally for locking but locking rods made from steel with connection to a locking system using a euro profile cylinder. Two main woodgrain finishes are offered - Golden Oak and Rosewood, perfect for matching modern Upvc window and entrance door finishes. The 'base' colour of the door is in the gel pigment used to make the door in the first place and the final front finish is hand applied.
The most popular form of supply however is still base coat stained for final finishing on site in order to coordinate with other timber finishes on the property. These high quality electric operators now come as standard with Bi Secur technology and a brand new range of hand transmitters with technology to remotely give an indication of whether the door is open or closed.
The retractable garage door has no cables to worry about, side tension springs and the operator has to do very little work to open and close the door - it simply pulls from the top of the panel via a towing arm. Hormann electric garage door operators are supplied with 2 transmitters as standard when purchased.
This frame is a corner type frame as standard but can be changed to a block frame for easier installation. This is the frame for fixing the door panel itself to and is either produced in a timber or steel box section. The actual drive through width and height of any one piece up and over garage door will never be the same as the ordering size.
A garage door fitted onto the inside face of an opening can be wider and higher than a door fitted inbetween the same size opening.
A range of powdercoated finishes and sizes are available all with steel sub frame as standard. We use a simple cookie to help remember login details for our site's admin panel and also for our Blog admin panel.
Large glass panels make you more freely to enjoy the sunlight naturally with the cool air from your garden. We started this project by increasing the height of the opening to allow easier access for the horses. Hormann steel garage doors are available in a powdercoat finish or available in a textured wood foil coating for a natural appearance.


All parts on a Hormann up and over garage door are either zinc or galvanised unlike other manufacturers, ensuring long life and smooth operation. The Hormann range has a choice of factory finished woodgrain colours and smooth white gloss finishes as well as window options in some of the designs. Cedarwood is also light in weight which helps ensure a good range of sizes that are effortless to operate. The drive-through width on a retractable mechanism is reduced as the lifting arms sit in between the sub-frame when the door is opened, be careful when limited for width that you do not restrict access too much for getting a vehicle in and out.. They also have multiple springs either side to spread the risk of spring failure and give an overall smoother action when lifting. 128 bit encryption is also used for the very highest levels of security and reliability - the same as used in internet banking!
You can also add the very useful 'de-latch kit' to a retractable electric door system giving the extra security of utilising the manual locking rods and latches in conjunction with the electric motor all driven by a simple mechanical device. The door panel hangs down in the opening and reduces the height depending on the thickness of the panel itself and the width can be reduced as mentioned above when using retractable door gear. If you are not sure please call or email us - it could mean the difference between getting your vehicle into the garage or not!

This door will give you the warmth in your home with large panels on doors allow you to get more light.
Typically, a small strip of weather stripping or insulation installed between the door and the door molding.
The client wanted a genuine barn look to the doors so we made them from tongue and groove pine and put the cross bracing on the inside of the doors instead of having it exposed. We left the doors unfinished so the client could paint the entire barn after we completed some other repairs that also needed to made. A range of standard sizes are available with or without an optional box section steel sub frame for installation.
The timber garage doors are supplied as standard with a clear basecoat stain for on site finishing but can be factory finished in a choice of colours.
Many people started to use this door it was easily induced in set it up with no takes a long time.
We had to install the sliding hardware on the outside for the small door because of the lack of space on the interior.
They had another door which they needed to be split in half height-wise so the top half could be opened independently of the bottom to allow fresh air to come into the barn but also prevent the horses from getting out.
Again the steel box section fixing sub frame is available on all sizes in canopy or retractable gear options.
These doors provide benefits that are perfect for liaison between the interior with the exterior of your home. One door will naturally overlap another, strong grip and a closed lock placed on one door, so a barrel lock to penetrate the second door and form a solid bridge between the two.
