Secured by Design accredited

Garages are often home to thousands of pounds worth of possessions, from prized motors, to bikes, gardening equipment and even white goods. So as the main point of entry, the garage door should be as secure as possible. The latest advances in garage door technology can be found in the side sliding HST sectional from Hörmann. Not only does the HST offer unique features for special fitting situations, its innovative design, including multiple security and safety aspects, makes it one of the securest doors available on the market.

For integral garages, Hörmann’s traditional vertical sliding sectional doors are the ideal choice. These insulated and solid timber versions are now available with Police approved Secured by Design status, when fitted with one of the manufacturer’s Series 3 BiSecur ProMatic or SupraMatic operators. These are the first of their kind to have passed the stringent tests required for the award and are, consequently, the garage door of choice for many homeowners. Products go through rigorous assessment to receive Secured by Design accreditation, including an attack test, where their ability to withstand common methods of burglary is put into practice. In addition to the security features already included in the door’s design, Hörmann’s Series 3 BiSecur ProMatic and SupraMatic operators benefit from a mechanical lock, making it almost impossible to lever open.

Secured by Design status can also be found among certain entrance doors, such as those in Hörmann’s steel ThermoPro range. Look for those with multi-point locking systems, and a combination of conical swing and security bolts that pull the door tightly shut to ensure maximum security. One of the key elements in the latest Secured by Design doors is the option for individually coded lock cylinders that have been designed to withstand picking, snapping, bumping or drilling. Hörmann’s ThermoPro and ThermoPro Plus ranges can even offer three further security bolts on the hinge side, making them highly break-in resistant. All of these high security features are available from Hörmann without compromising on style. A wide selection of decorative features, colours and finishes, as well as an array of security lights, can also be selected to create the perfect entrance and driveway.
