We have been using Hormann electric garage doors for over 30 years, due to their unrivalled quality and safety. We would normally install a Hormann ProMatic operator on a single door or a Hormann SupraMatic operator to a double width door.
These two motor units have slightly different technical specifications (see brochure)
If there is no power supply to the garage, a Hormann ProMatic Akku battery operated operator can be installed.
The Hormann ProMatic and SupraMatic both run from mains electricity, but can also have a battery back-up system installed for extra peace of mind. This simply bolts onto the back of the operator.
If power supply to the garage is an issue or too costly for the customer to install themselves, then the Hormann ProMatic Akku is an option. This is a battery operated remote control system and can even be linked up to solar panels
All Hormann products are built to European Standards and certified. The BiSecur technology allows safe operation of electric garage doors and the encryption protocol means your radio cannot be copied by anybody else. They also have a safety cut out, which means the door will stop if it hits an obstacle. Photocells can also be installed for added safety.
All Hormann operators adhere to stringent security standards. When the electric garage door is closed, the door security kit automatically engages in the guide rail stop, immediately locking and securing it against forced opening. This lock is purely mechanical and in contrast to operators from other manufacturers, effective even in the event of a power failure. Burglars don’t stand a chance!
Hormann offer an array of different controls to operate your electric garage doors, from a simple transmitter located on the inside of your garage wall, to a finger scanner or even a mobile phone app!
The most popular is the wireless hand held transmitter and they come in a range of colours. These transmitters can be programmed to control up to 4 different doors or gates. Customers can also have a hard wired push button fitted onto the wall inside the garage. Other products available to operate your garage door are finger scanners, keypads, key switch, transponder and mobile phone technology! Also, with the Hs5BS hand transmitter, you can check whether or not the garage door is open or closed at the press of your button! This comes in handy when the garage door is situated away from the house and especially handy in wet and windy weather!
Remote Control Systems for electric garage doors are based on the size and weight of the door and expected usage of the system and can also generally be retro fitted. They can usually fit most door types but are better suited to some than others. Install time varies, but generally we allow approx 2 hours to fit a motor to a garage door. The cost of running a rcs is about the same as a 100W light bulb for 4 minutes and can be battery or solar cell powered. They are generally considered ‘secure’ if fitted properly.
If you are unsure as to whether your existing garage door is suitable for automation, give us a call or pop in to see us, bringing with you some pictures and information from your door and somebody can advise you.
If fitting a rcs to a newly installed garage door, it normally adds approximately £400 to a single door and £500 to a double door.
So, once you’ve had your new door installed, there are a few maintenance tips which our engineers will discuss with you, but if you need a reminder or simply want to clarify what he said, then here are the main points to be aware of:

Mansfield Garage Doors installed a replacement motor and remote system for an old Henderson garage door. The engineers who did the work and the office staff who took the calls and made the arrangements were all extremely efficient and pleasant. Their expertise was most appreciated.

We would like to compliment Mansfield Garage Doors on their recent installation of a replacement garage door on our garage. The two engineers arrived at the time promised, removed the old double garage door etc. and had the new door installed by lunchtime. The electrical work and commissioning were carried out after lunch and all the clearing away done by late afternoon. A very neat installation and polite team of men, thank you.
Our first contact with Mansfield Garage Doors was 10 years ago. A building contractor built a double garage for us and installed a powered door. What a mess the job was. For example, the double door was the wrong size, likewise its suspension arms, which could not lift the door to the correct height. A friend came to the rescue: he told us to go to Mansfield Garage Doors (MGD). A senior member of MGD came to inspect the mess, and wrote a report on it. That was enough to send the cowboy contractor packing, rightly unpaid. We asked MGD to take over, which they did with admirable competence. They are reliable, skilled and competent. They come out to help. Recently they installed a new door for us, from the German company, Hormann. MGD understand engineering. Yours sincerely Dermot O'Sullivan
