Leicestershire garage and industrial door manufacturer Hörmann has seen its number of installations for car dealerships double since 2012.
Over the past few years, more and more companies in the auto sector such as BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Kia, Peugeot, Porsche and Mercedes have been approaching Hörmann with requests for its doors for their new UK showrooms and service centres.
This increase in demand for new or improved showrooms may be due to the fact that the number of UK new car sales has returned to its pre-economic downturn level. In total, 2.63 million new vehicles were registered last year, the best annual performance to date following four years of consecutive growth.
With health and safety planning and thermal efficiency now at the forefront of design, building professionals are under increasing pressure to select doors that achieve the best possible insulation values without compromising on style, security or ease of use.
Taking all of this into account, Hörmann’s sectional doors are proving to be a popular choice. These doors not only aesthetically match the high-end specification of car showrooms, but also provide excellent insulation values. In addition, they are among the safest doors on the market even with an opening speed of up to 2.5m/s.
One project that was completed last year was the brand new, state of the art showroom for Jaguar and Land Rover in Stockport, where 14 of Hörmann’s HS 7030 PU high-speed doors have been installed. The door’s energy saving insulated panels glide smoothly and quickly into a spiral bracket, without contact, thanks to their chain mechanisms with spring compensation. Another benefit of the design means that the door requires less fitting space than traditional combi-doors.
Tom Langley, projects director at Hörmann, comments:
“It’s great to see that we’re now recognised as a leading manufacturer and supplier for this industry and have so many new customers coming aboard. We’re confident that this growth is down to our class-leading sectional door range and are looking forward to the upcoming projects this year.”
