    Hi Guys

    Anyone have any recommendations on a good garage door? I am currently inclined towards the Hormann sectional garage door, but I don't really have much experience in this field, so could use some advice.

    My primary requirement is that it must be well insulated and has good acoustic properties, since I will be using the building as a workshop. I also don't want a handle on the outside, since it's facing out into a back alley, anyone can come along and try to yank the darn thing.

    I've just bought the same door, I can really recommend it & the installer was telling me that in the 12 years he has been installing them he has come across several attempted break ins but none that were successful.I'm fairly sure not having an external handle was an option. They are really strong & well secured when fitted correctly.
    However if you are not worried about the aesthetics of the door then the heavy duty roller doors are probably the most secure.
