With energy costs escalating, attention has never been more focussed on insulation and thermal efficiency. For all loading bays, options that were previously only considered for cold stores are proving to be cost effective options with the energy savings they provide.

The new ThermoFrame from Hörmann dramatically improves the thermal efficiency of sectional loading bay doors by providing a thermal break between the door frame and the fabric of the building. While the high quality engineering that Hörmann has built its reputation on gives a precision fit in the door opening, the heavy duty plastic ThermoFrame with its additional seals leads to an even more efficient closure.

When ThermoFrame is fitted with the Hörmann SPU insulated loading bay door a dramatic 20% improvement in thermal insulation can be achieved. An even more impressive 40% improvement is possible when fitted with the new UPVC locating and lintel profiles available with the double insulated DPU sectional door.

The success of the SPU sectional door, that features 42mm thick CFC free rigid PU foam insulation, has lead to the development of a new insulated version of Hörmann’s High Speed Spiral Door. This door the HS7030PU replaces the traditional two door solution of a high speed curtain for daytime use and a sectional outer door or roller shutter for night time security. The original version of this door was selected by Asda for their Didcot distribution centre and was estimated, by independent consultants, to provide savings that would recover their cost within 2 years.

Designed from scratch, the new door leaf incorporates 42mm thick insulation which also gives strength as well as improved thermal and acoustic insulation. Connecting hinges between sections are another new Hörmann design feature that add stability leading to increased reliability and a longer service life.

These latest products are further examples of Hörmann’s commitment to new product development to meet the changing needs of their customers. With design input, technical support as part of the package and a focus on high quality engineering Hörmann continue to supply the most cost effective solutions whatever your needs.
