The Hormann SPU F42 sectional overhead door is a door capable of fulfilling nearly every requirement for any commercial or industrial application. Strong, reliable, insulated, made to order, engineered to perfection and best of all, very economical compared to nearly every other industrial door option, it is one of the best types of doors to consider for your building. This is a door offering far higher levels of performance than any roller shutter door can unless specified to very high levels by which time the price is far greater than the sectional door anyway.

The SPU F42 is a 42mm thick double skinned insulated steel sectional door available in a stucco textured surface or micrograin surface finish. It has excellent thermal insulation with a HCFC free polyurethane rigid foam core providing installed U values as low as 1.0 W/m2K.

The door is available in 14 standard paint finish colours and any size up to 8000mm wide and 7000mm high with endless spring lifting arrangements to suit the internal shape of the building. It can be produced in almost any RAL colour and some popular UK cladding colours for a small additional charge.
In our online shop we offer this door up to 6000mm wide and 5000mm high for faster delivery and easier specification with the standard N track mechanism only. The door can be ordered in larger sizes and with a massive choice of different track options and spring positions to suit the building and maximise space and efficiency.
Single and three phase electric operators are available with almost any type of access control method to suit the environement and users of the door.

A huge range of 26mm thick double sealed window units are possible in the SPU42, offering light and vision where required.

The optional wicket door is a masterpiece of engineering with only a 10mm threshold to reduce the possibility of tripping to an absolute minimum. This door can also be specified with panic hardware to use as a fire escape door. The standard wicket door is also much sider than the average competitors door for ease of access and can be positioned in seeveral places depending on the width of the door overall.

Secured By Design Accreditation

The SPU F42 and the SPU67 Thermo sectional doors have been awarded the Secured By Design (SBD) accreditation recently to further enhance this industry leading sectional overhead door.
In order to achieve SBD status, the SPU F42 and the SPU67 Thermo were tested against a set of key security standards to ensure optimum safety requirements were met, this includes issues surrounding current trends in crime in the UK. Following these tests, the SBD label established both the SPU F42 and the SPU 67 Thermo industrial doors as highly secure options for industrial and commercial buildings.
In order to achieve this accreditation a manually operated door must have an additional shoot or rotary bolt. The electric operated version must be fitted with an extra anti-lift kit, both beinbg very small additonal uplift in cost.
