Compact Sectional Door
The Bruce Clough Mazda dealership (Pakenham Mazda) has developed a state-of-the-art showroom and service department to rival competitor dealerships.
The Dealer Principal of Pakenham Mazda was looking for a specific door product which had a smart appearance, minimal overhead clutter as well as energy efficient operation and the Remax Team were asked to supply and install four Compact Sectional Doors, two full vision doors for the handover bays measuring 3000H x 3500W in 4mm safety glazed glass sectional doors, with black powder coated frames and thermal RAL panels for and the third and fourth automatic sectional doors, for the exit and entry to the showroom, measuring 3500 x 5000 and 3500 x 4400mm. Thermal and double glazed Compact Sectional Doors assist in conserving energy within the showroom and workshop servicing area as well as assist in maintaining the high quality standards and design of the showroom.
The Compact Sectional Doors were colour-matched and integrated into the showroom design where the handover bay door panels fold up, in concertina-style, into a recessed unit above the doorway which means that overhead lighting and overall design flow is not impacted by unsightly overhead beams of traditional overhead doors.
The Compact Sectional Door is well suited to Car Showrooms as it can be designed to match the building architecture, as well as the specifications required for the build itself. For this particular project, the client chose a combination of fully glazed glass sectional doors for maximum natural light and insulated sectional panels. Many variations can be manufactured including incorporating a wicket door or a mixture of both vision panels and thermal RAL panels. The Sectional Door panels offer options such as: thermal, PVC, double-glazed acrylate, polycarbonate, reinforced safety glass and more - as well as the many colour options available that can be colour matched to the building!
Not only is the Compact Sectional Door favoured by Architects due its versatility in appearance, but it is also favoured by Builders due to its versatility onsite when it comes to ease of installation and because it does not require the vast increase in overhead space which is normally specified for standard overhead doors which can create a large wasted space overhead which cannot be utilised for any other purpose. With the Compact Sectional Door, the roof space can be fully utilised without impacting the door both in open and closed state.

Pakenham Mazda chose the Compact Sectional Doors for the following benefits:
For its smart appearance and design flexibility
To protect against wind and dust
To increase energy efficiency and contribute to an ambient work environment within the workshop which is heated / air conditioned
For its super quiet operation
For its compact nature, meaning that it does not take up overhead space nor require extra space to be built into the building itself to accommodate the door panels.
Compact Sectional Doors have also been installed at Cadbury in their wash-down area, showing the true flexibility of the Compact Sectional Door. Compact Sectional Doors are made bespoke to its environment and entry, in both panel requirements (whether you require full vision panels, thermal panels or a mixture of both - thermal, PVC, double-glazed acrylate/polycarbonate/reinforced safety glass, mesh) as well as the opening size, from your average garage door opening size to a large warehouse requiring access for heavy machinery and vehicles such as aeroplanes, cranes and Fire Engines.

N.B: Compact Sectional Doors also allow for the "need for speed". Our luxury car showroom client in Melbourne requested very early in their project, for the door to operate at high speed, in order to allow a smooth flow of vehicles into the luxury showroom facility. Remax engineered their Compact doors to operate at 0.6m per second, giving them an opening time of just 7 seconds; a staggering 20 seconds improvement over a typical roller shutter door! On a busy day with 40+ vehicles entering the workshop, this represents a time saving of up to 15 minutes per day. Read More about this Project Here.
