SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite ‘Measures Up’ to an Extra Wide Garage in Yorkshire

Earlier in the year, we revealed that following substantial in-house product development, we were now able to manufacture our SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite garage door to unprecedented widths of up to six metres. This exciting new change has proven to be a welcome development by distributors, while homeowners with exceptionally large garages have been delighted to discover that they too can enjoy the benefits of our SeceuroGlide sectional garage door.

Below is a case study of one such homeowner who, amongst other feature requirements, was looking for a quality garage door that could span the width of their 4.5metre garage opening.

The Customer:

The homeowner, who is based in the attractive Selby district of North Yorkshire, contacted our distributor Local Garage Door Services to assist them with the installation of a door on their super-sized garage, which was attached to their stunning newbuild home.

The Requirements:

Upon visiting the customer, Local Garage Door Services discovered that the garage didn’t have standard dimensions, which instantly ruled out ‘off the shelf’ garage door designs. Measuring 4.5metres wide, the opening was over twice as wide as the average UK garage door, which typically measure in at approximately 7ft (2133mm). Other factors Local Garage Door Services needed to consider was the customer’s need for a door with electric operation which also provided exceptional security, ensuring the safety of the cars which were housed within the garage.

It was evident that aesthetics was also high up on the customer’s list of importance, and that any garage door should accentuate the design and appearance of the stunning stone property. The customer also stressed the need for excellent insulating benefits as the garage is attached to the main building and houses a separate door into the home.

The Solution:

The homeowner was concerned that garage door options would be limited due to the unconventional size of their opening, so Local Garage Door Services were delighted to inform them that following substantial product development, our SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite could now be manufactured to bespoke widths of up to 6m, which comfortably accommodated their 4.5m wide garage.

With an insulating value of 0.51 W/m2k, fully automatic operation and excellent security features, the customer was impressed with the specification provided with the Sectional Elite and opted for the ultra-modern, un-ribbed 40mm Polyisocyanurate (PIR) energy-efficient panels in Chartwell Green, which as well as perfectly complementing the stone structure of their property, was also an exact match to their newly installed front door.

The Installation:

Manufactured and supplied by us in November of last year, Local Garage Door Services successfully completed the installation in just one day, using a team of two installers.

The Outcome:

The homeowner praised the quality of their newly installed door and complimented Local Garage Door Services on their excellent workmanship. They were delighted with the smooth, electric operation and commented on how much they were looking forward to using it. In fact, they were so pleased with the overall look, design and quality of the door, that they later went on to purchase a SeceuroGlide roller garage door for the rear of their property!

The SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite:

Our range of SeceuroGlide sectional garage doors combine inovative safety and security features and are produced using high-quality materials and our exacting manufacturing processes. The feature-packed SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite is a side-sprung door which uses a unique track connecting system and a patented running mechanism which provides smooth operation and a strong, durable door.

In addition to an increase in manufacturing sizes, we now supply our SeceuroGlide Sectional Elite garage doors with newly developed spring covers, which as well as delivering aesthetic benefits will also provide additional protection against anything becoming caught in the spring. Where applicable, a belt-rail bracket will also be supplied as standard.
