A Greener Future

Many of Hörmann’s products have a great focus not only on function, but impact on the environment too. For instance, many of their entrance doors and garage doors are incredibly insulated, improving your home’s energy efficiency. The insulation is made using environmentally-friendly procedures for foaming. Hörmann’s commitment to a greener future can be seen in all aspects of their production, such as using renewable energies to power factories, CO2 neutral printing and post and recycling of its packaging used to transport products.
