Hormann unveils wicket door with trip-free threshold

DUBAI, May 16, 2019

Hormann, a market leader in residential, industrial and commercial doors, has announced the launch of a special wicket door with trip-free threshold and thermal break in the Middle East region.

Only Hormann offers the wicket door with a stainless steel trip-free threshold that is only 10 mm in the centre and 5 mm high at the sides at the moment, said the German company in a statement.

The wicket door in the garage door lets you easily access whatever you have in your garage, such as gardening tools, bikes or wheelbarrows. It reduces the risk of tripping up and makes it easier to wheel things through, it added.

A Germany-based group, Hormann set up its own subsidiary in 2009 at Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai  to serve the entire Middle East and Africa regions.

Darius Khanloo, the managing director, Hormann Middle East and Africa, said: "Our new wicket door design helps to maintain the thermal integrity of the door leaf. One of the major benefits of our design is the unique, trip-free threshold."

"Wicket doors with trip-free threshold are only available for sectional door LPU 42," stated Khanloo.

"As this wicket door has a door width of up to 5 m, it can also be used as an emergency exit," he added.

A globally-oriented fast growing company in the construction supplier industry, Hormann said the aluminium door frame is anodised as standard in a natural finish and is also available in all colours.

The top garage door section, also in the wicket door area, comes with a continuous lintel seal. Doors with wicket doors are available with a door width of up to 5 m, it stated.

The wicket door is locked over the entire door height with one bolt and hook bolt per section. This provides the advantage of better stability and improved break-in-resistance.

For fixed bolt, the fixed leaf on double-leaf side doors can be individually locked. To create a matching appearance, deco grain side doors come with identical surface finishing for the frame, subframe and door to create a matching appearance, said the statement.

However large the home’s side entrance might be and however high the demands are on thermal insulation, Hormann strives to produce the right side-door for all types of garage, it stated.

Hormann provides single-leaf doors for small and double-leaf doors for large entrances, each in versions NT60 and NT80.

With aluminium profiles with thermal break, frame and threshold rail, the NT80 is the best choice for air-conditioned garages or garages with access to the house, said the company in its statement.

On request, Hormann can also supply side-doors in the same ribbing or panel division as the home owner’s sectional door so that they can design a side entrance to match the garage door, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
