Sectional garage doors

Sectional garage door principle

Sectional garage door?

Sectional garage doors are utterly convenient, offer maximum security and allow best possible use of the space. They are comprised of individual elements, so-called sections, connected by hinges, which make it possible to roll the door up or down vertically and to slide it conveniently underneath the ceiling without it swinging outwards in front of the garage and thus taking up space.

So you gain additional space in front of the garage, where you might want to park a second car, for example. And garages located near roads or pavements do not put pedestrians at risk and the traffic keeps flowing. Garage doors with electrical operators always leave the full passage height clear – which is ideal for tall vehicles, such as SUVs or vans.

Appearance-wise, sectional garage doors leave nothing to be desired, either: high-quality materials, top-quality processing and a wide variety of additional fittings give each garage an individual look – in keeping with the architecture of the house and your personal taste.

Why opt for sectional garage doors made by Novoferm?
Quality and durability of our surfaces

All sectional garage doors and sectional garage side doors with coated (Super Color or RAL of your choice), film-covered (Golden Oak, Dark Oak, Mahogany, Winchester and Night Oak) and textured surface finishes (satin white, satin grey, satin dark grey and satin brown) are top coated at Novoferm.

As well as giving your garage an elegant look, our quality surface finishes are more resistant to environmental factors, so you can enjoy your garage door for longer.

Premium quality backed up by our warranty

All Novoferm sectional garage doors bear the Novoferm seal of quality. The garage doors and operators are manufactured in accordance with the ISO 9001 quality management system and comply with the stringent safety requirements of European garage door standard EN 13241-1. In addition we give a ten-year warranty on all steel sectional garage doors with our seal of quality. Film-covered garage doors (Golden Oak, Dark Oak, Mahogany, Winchester and Night Oak), our garage doors with textured surface finishes (satin white, satin grey, satin dark grey and satin brown) and the mechanical, motor and motor control components of our garage door operators are protected by a five-year warranty.

Insulation and energy efficiency

Our sectional garage doors have a 20 or 45 mm core of rigid PUR foam, ensuring good to maximum heat insulation. All of our garage door operators and additional hardware (e.g. light strips) are fitted with modern, energy-saving LED lamps for added brightness, along with cost and energy efficiency. A further benefit in terms of energy savings is that many of our operators only consume 0.5 W in standby. And our Thermo frame set improves heat insulation by up to 15%*.
* This performance is dependent on the door pattern and size

Innovative and powerful

Advanced technology belongs in a modern casing. Our new generation of operators are trendy and stylish with increased push/pull force. The new Novoferm garage door operators combine cutting-edge technology with the highest level of energy efficiency. Their impressive features include an optimized design, state-of-the-art LED technology, stability and enhanced performance.

NEW: In conjunction with a sectional garage door, most of our new garage door operators can be operated using Novoferm's "smartGarage" mobility app, which you can download free of charge from the App Store or Google Play.

Tested security

Novoferm's sectional garage doors guarantee the highest levels of safety and security. In addition to offering personal safety and functional reliability for friends and family, thanks to anti-pinch protection (inside and outside) and a torsion spring with spring break safety feature on both sides (iso 45), they are also resistant to break-ins, thanks to their sophisticated construction.

This includes features and functions such as TÜV-tested burglar resistance*, electronic push-up safeguard and a self-locking gear. There is an optional installation kit for Novoferm sectional garage doors that provides additional burglar resistance and has been tested to Dutch standard NEN 5096 at SKG. The burglar resistance has been certified under the standard's class 2. Tamper-proof remote controls protected by multi-part rolling codes are also available.
