Thus, Hörmann fire-rated doors are often the standard in the fire areas of industrial and public buildings, apartment compounds, hospitals, and airports.
Intelligent remote control
Hörmann is dedicated to technologies that enhance the quality of life. The BiSecur app updates the current status of customers’ doors anytime, anywhere. The door can be easily opened and closed once the app is activated. After downloading the BiSecur app on a mobile phone or tablet system, users can open the entrance door, garage door, or gate easily with a mobile phone or tablet. The app also displays the position of customer’s garage door and gate, which can be checked remotely in real time.
Users simply register their gateway and their smart phone or tablet on the BiSecur webpage for internet-powered control anywhere in the world. One-time registration is convenient and performed with the highest security of your data.
Thanks to its sections with thermal breaks and special seals for the building structure and floor, Hörmann’s ISO Speed Cold is the optimum solution for areas with high temperature differences.

The ISO Speed Cold features steel sections with rigid foam (PU) and a thermal break on the inside and outside. Additional lintel and bottom seals help to achieve excellent thermal insulation value (UP = 0.24 W/[m2·K]). The ThermoFrame separates the frame from the building structure. The thermal break, including additional seals, ensures excellent thermal insulation and provides optimal corrosion protection for the side frame.

The product gained an independent certification from the European Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) and won several awards.
