When you’re building a luxury home, every part of the design is important to bringing the overall vision to life. We often consider garages to be utilitarian part of the home, where practicality should be considered over visual appeal. With Rundum Meir horizontal sliding garage doors, you don’t have to choose. Our doors offer many advantages over other options, both in visual appeal and functionality.
Technical Advantages of Horizontal Sliding Garage Doors
There are many technical advantages of horizontal sliding garage doors over the standard overhead doors. Here are just a few:
- More overhead space: The garage is the logical place to store many of our favorite outdoor accessories, such as canoes, fishing poles, surfboards, bikes, etc. With an overhead garage door, you lose the ability to utilize a great deal of your garage’s ceiling space for storage and organization. Rundum Meir’s unique horizontal sliding garage door design allows you to maximize your usage of the garage ceiling.
- Easy pedestrian entrance: If you’ve ever had the experience of trying to go in and out of a garage with an overhead door, you’ll truly appreciate the experience of Rundum Meir’s side sliding doors. The doors are easily opened and closed to partial widths to allow for a pedestrian entrance.
- Unusual elevations: Our sliding garage doors can be made to fit almost any opening including curved or unusual shapes and can be used with sloped garage ceilings, as well. The doors can also be installed to slide around obstacles on the garage interior, such as pipes or columns.
- Low maintenance: Every Rundum Meir garage door is hand-made from from premium materials and built to last with little maintenance. Our innovative design does not include the chains, pulleys and tension springs that overhead garage doors use, which are prone to break, creating a safety hazard and leaving the homeowner with an unexpected repair bill.
