Exploring the Security Features of Hörmann Garage Doors

In this blog we’re going to take a look at the security features of Hörmann Garage Doors in an effort to help inform homeowners looking to upgrade their property with new garage doors and security doors for their homes.

Automatic sectional garage doors from Hörmann are packed with security features

Hörmann’s prestigious collection of automatic sectional doors has a number of features and benefits to offer. If we take a close look at the security features specifically, you’ll note that the entire range of automatic sectional doors comes equipped with an ‘anti-lift’ kit. This ingenious feature engages the operator boom stop when the garage door is closed, locking the door instantly. This automatic looking mechanism is entirely mechanical in design, meaning that it will still operate even in the event of a power failure. This is a feature typically found only in premium quality security doors for homes, such as safe rooms.

The next impressive security feature of Hörmann’s automatic sectional doors is the incorporated BiSecur radio system. BiSecur is an advanced system that Hörmann has developed which essentially encrypts radio signals between electronic garage doors and their supplied remote operating devices. Encryption means that no other individual can mimic or replicate your unique radio signal that’s supplied with your specific garage door. The system is protected from radio interference, making it not only incredibly secure, but also highly reliable.   

Hörmann’s up-and-over secure garage doors for UK homes

Hörmann's up-and-over garage doors have over 100 years of city heritage behind them. With countless styles, options, and finishes to choose from, there truly is a security door for every home.

However, the design and pedigree of Hörmann's up-and-over garage doors are far from the only feature that makes them so popular with homeowners looking for an affordable, secure door in the UK. Packed full of safety and security features, pound-for-pound, Hörmann’s up-and-over garage doors are very hard to beat. With a clever rotary catch lock that securely fits garage door leaf corners in place, they are incredibly difficult to open using brute force. 

Alongside the rotary catch locks, the lever arm springs used to operate the door are robust enough that the remaining springs will continue to operate in the event that one of them fails. Additionally, the gap between spring windings has been designed in such a way that fingers and hands can’t accidentally get caught in the mechanism. 


The side hinged DFT 42 Hörmann garage door

Perfect for smaller sized garages, the side hinged DFT 42 Hörmann garage door can either be opened by one, or both door leaves. 

As well as enjoying easy access to your garage, Hörmann’s side hinged garage doors have been fitted with a high quality profile cylinder lock and aluminium handle, which protects your property from intruders. When closed and opened, the door leaves can be securely fixed in place by floor bolts and door stays.
