Hörmann provide garage doors to house commercial plane


At York Garage Doors, we are always interested when garage doors are used for slightly different purposes than just standards domestic garages.

We were thrilled to hear of a story in Suffolk where Hörmann garage doors have been used to protect a four-seater aeroplane in a 105 metre squared hanger next to his home.

The homeowner who has been a pilot for over 30 years used to store his plane about 20 minutes from his house, but had always had some reservations about the quality on the site.  He uses his plane to get to place like Paris in just over a few hours and occasionally flies down to the south of France for the day using a runway in his neighbour’s grass fields.

The garage is also used to house his four family cars which fit under the wing span of the Jabiru plane. Hörmann Garage doors are used throughout and have been bespoke made. The project itself also allows for expansion for extra cars and the garage doors can also take up to a six-seater plan should the homeowner wish to upgrade his model.

The garage doors provide by Hörmann are fitted with the latest electronic operating system and he joked that all he has to do now is press a button and he can get on his plane.
