Ardgowan Homes needed a design of garage door that reflected the quality and exclusivity of the three, four and five bedroom detached houses at the house builders prestigious Ballochmyle development in Ayrshire.
The solution, in terms of aesthetics and product quality, came in the form of Hörmann UKs LTH 40 V-panel Hemlock solid timber infill doors, supplied and fitted by Ayrshire Garage Doors. Hemlock is a grayish white to light-greyish brown softwood with a predominantly straight grain, brown mineral stripes along the grain and bark pockets, all of which add to the traditional beauty of the door.
The aesthetic quality of this timber door was further enhanced by specifying classic V-panel glazing along the top panel of the door, which also helps let natural light into the garage.
Hemlock is one of the most durable timber products on the market and is capable of withstanding the adverse weather conditions common to some parts of Scotland. To further increase protection against the elements and insect or fungal attack, all Hörmann timber doors are pre-treated and impregnated in a double immersion bath process at the factory.
James Watt of Ayrshire Garage Doors commented: The Hemlock V-panel door perfectly suites the style and class of houses on this development. It was one of the only doors that could fit the brief in terms of looks and that hard-wearing quality necessary for our Scottish weather.
A development of this quality would not be complete without remote garage door operation and operators dont get any better than Hörmanns SupraMatic operator, fitted at each property at the scheme. Housed in a stylish, brushed aluminium casing and boasting a rapid door opening time of 22cm per second, the SupraMatic is one of the fastest, quietest and smoothest operators on the market.
The SupraMatic also features Hörmanns patented toothed belt which makes this operator maintenancefree as nothing needs to be oiled, re-adjusted or adapted. New home owners at Ballochmyle also have the benefit of automatic door latching which prevents the door from being levered open and an automatic cut-out which instantly stops the door from closing if it encounters an obstruction.
