Security is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing your new garage door and rightly so.
The Garage Door products that we supply offer some of the best security features on the market. The Hormann and Garador up and over range of garage doors have a unique lock system which fixes the corners of the door leaf firmly behind the frame at 2 points. It is also possible to upgrade to a 4 point locking system which greater increase your security.
The Garador and Hormann garage door operators that we provide for up & over and sectional doors have an automatically engaging antilock kit which secures the door against forced opening.
We offer a range of products with increased security features and the police certified “Secured By Design” logo. These are available on a number of products by Garador, Hormann and Seceuroglide rollers.
Secured by Design is an association focusing on the design of more secured homes and commercial properties.
Secured by Design is owned by the ACPO (Association of Chief Police Offices) and awards the Secured by Design status to products that pass their extensive procedures.
