Rundum Garage doors meet functional requirements without compromising style 

Garage doors often have to meet specific design requirements that come about as a result of the location or period of an existing building. Usually conservation areas or listed properties demand particular door designs. Occasionally doors are designed to remain true to a building such as a coach house or a mews property. Some schemes express the desire to reconcile old with new, such as mews houses that are contemporary in their conception and treatment, while echoing original mews planning where vertical timber sliding doors are preferred.

Most garage door manufacturers have a large range of garage door systems, each of which has different structural opening requirements. Often the garage door is overlooked at the early stages of a project, which then can result in design compromises. Considering how large a garage door is in relation to the overall elevation of a building, it pays to consider the design of a garage door from the outset.

The wide ranges of materials Rundum Meir use in the construction of their garage doors include aluminum, insulated steel and a variety of timbres, including oak. All of these materials are ideal for architect led projects, refurbishment and conservation of listed and traditional buildings. Their sliding garage doors can be made to fit almost any opening including curved or unusual shapes and their custom made garage doors operate very quietly and have many additional advantages and features such as electric remote automation and insulation. Both their bespoke wooden and metal doors have numerous options for personalization and adaption into a wide variety of installations. Rundum Meir also makes overhead doors, oversized doors and curved doors that can match the curvature of the envelope of a building.
