With an extensive sports car collection to house, the creation of a luxury garage has been made all the more eye-catching with the installation of fully glazed garage doors supplied by Hörmann UK. The construction of the garage was carried out by APM Design and Build, working alongside Nailormade Interior Design who chose the Hörmann ALR F42 doors for their modern design aesthetic, lightweight construction, and German build quality.
The garage, part of a beautiful residential property in rural Ashridge Hertfordshire, has been transformed from an existing building and can house up to six cars. Nailormade specified the ALR F42 Hörmann doors for their quality and performance alongside their ability to provide a creative solution. The doors are constructed from a lightweight, yet strong, alumiumum framework with large glazing panels and are typically used in commercial car showrooms due to their continuous window sections offering an unimpeded view. This made them ideal for the project where displaying the cars was of prime importance to the client.
The three, fully automated 3000 x 2165mm doors have been fitted with scratch resistant DURATEC synthetic glazing which supplies a permanently clear view. A special surface coating, DURATEC protects the pane from scratches and damage caused by cleaning over the long-term. The Anthracite grey glazing panels co-ordinate and compliment the other materials used in the renovation and help complete an impressive building, ideal for the homeowner’s car collection.
Colin Naylor, of Nailormade Interior Design comments, “I specified the Hörmann ALR F42 garage doors because of the company’s well-known reputation for high-quality, high-performance doors. This, together with the overall aesthetic of the product made them perfect for such a prestigious project and provided the ideal visual solution for the client.”
