Hörmann acquires the world’s leading supplier of perimeter protection systems, Pilomat

The UK’s leading door manufacturer, Hörmann has announced that it has acquired the majority of shares of the world’s leading suppliers of bollards, road blockers, lift carriers and tyre killers, Pilomat. 

The recent acquisition means that Hörmann now owns 70 percent of the Italian manufacturer, and will now be available to purchase under the Hörmann brand.

The new product range from Hörmann will consist of reinforced bollards, road blockers for passages of up to six metres wide, lift carriers for passages of up to ten metres wide and tyre killers. The bollards are designed for perimeter control of private and public areas, such as pedestrian precincts, parking zones and company premises, as well as in high security places such as ministerial buildings, airports, and exhibition grounds.

Bollards available in this range include automatic, semi-automatic, fixed and removable, and all come with a matching appearance. An optional Emergency Fast Operation control (EFO) which lifts the products within 1.5 seconds is available for emergency situations.

With many contractors looking for manufacturers and suppliers that can provide them with a complete solution, Hörmann UK’s marketing manager, David O’Mara, believes the new product range will complement and enhance its existing offering and ensure that it is able to meet the demands of its customers, as he confirms:

“Renowned for the quality of our products, our recent acquisition of Pilomat not only enhances our product offering, but it means that our customers can now buy everything they need from a single source and receive on-site support from experienced Hörmann personnel.”
