A unique garage door fit for one of Scotland’s ‘homes of the year’

December 2021

Contemporary architecture is continuously pushing the boundaries and redefining the purpose of familiar building elements, including the garage door as the unique TrägerHAUS dwelling near Glasgow demonstrates.

The award-winning property by architects HAUS Collective features an elegant, completely bespoke side sliding sectional garage door designed, manufactured and installed by Rundum Meir. This distinctive feature on the house’s outward facing elevation, is one of the first elements that greets anyone visiting the property, which is why it was important to ensure its design and quality is fitting for an ultra-high specification house.

The TrägerHAUS was a finalist in the BBC’s 2020 Scotland’s Home of the Year awards. During their visit, the competition’s judges described the house as “a really well-made building” and, during a discussion on the property’s appearance on arrival, one judge commented how “it is difficult to make something look that neat with so few materials.”

But it is not only the BBC Home of the Year judges who have been drawn to the TrägerHAUS. The ambitious contemporary residence, which extends to approximately 3,750 square feet, was also named as one of the top 100 houses in Scotland since 2000 by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).

Built on the periphery of the Upper Whitecraigs Conservation Area on a plot that slopes down from a main thoroughfare, the TrägerHAUS sits comfortably in its residential context being relatively unassuming – disguising its more dramatic architecture at the rear.

Whilst the scale and main volume of the house may not be apparent at street level, this does not detract from the visual appeal of the property as a result of careful consideration of the materials for the home’s outward-looking elevation and main entrance.

Key to this was the decision to utilise an elegant Rundum Meir side sliding sectional garage door. The door’s manufacture in Siberian Larch ensures consistency with property’s other timber cladding elements which perfectly complement the Caithness stone masonry. Fully automated for ease of opening and closing, the garage door operates with the smoothness and reliability that reflects the level of quality which runs through the whole building.

As with all Rundum Meir garage doors, this side sectional door was bespoke manufactured by its team of skilled craftsmen and women in Germany. As each door is made to order in numerous types of timber, including Nordic Spruce, Superior Spruce, Larch, Hemlock, Oak and Sapele, any architectural specification can be easily accommodated. This provides the freedom to design the external envelope to incorporate an interesting garage door feature that makes a significant contribution to delivering on the client’s aesthetic ambitions.

Rundum Meir side sliding sectional garage doors features panels suspended from a top track, which slot perfectly into either a traditional U-channel with drainage facilities, or a surface mounted T-bar at the foot of the door. Constructed with a double skin timber insulation and fittings which require little maintenance, the doors offer exceptional stability and durability, conforming to all relevant building standards including BS EN 13241 Part 1 Industrial, commercial and garage doors and gates for total peace of mind.

Creating the perfect garage for classic Humber car collection

September 2021

A bespoke timber side sliding sectional garage door by Rundum Meir has proved to be the perfect fit for a private collector of classic 1950s Humber cars.

After moving into the period property around six years ago, Cab Ellis was keen to redevelop the unloved garage to create a space for housing his collection of mark IV B Humber Super Snipe cars. Having purchased and maintained four of these specific models over the past 15 years, Mr Ellis wanted to ensure the new garage would reflect the beauty of the vehicles as well as mirror the period architecture of his 1910-built home.

The Humber Super Snipe was very much regarded as an upmarket car of choice amongst senior public and business figures in the mid 1950s, providing a level of luxury beyond that of the more mainstream Humber stablemate in that era, the Humber Hawk – for which the Super Snipe is often mistaken. Elegantly styled with powerful 4,138 cc 113 bhp engines, they were built between 1952 and 1956 and today their heritage lives on thanks to the efforts of dedicated collectors like Mr Ellis.

The vehicles are now housed in a garage accessed via an automated timber side sliding sectional door, featuring glass apertures, designed, manufactured and installed by Rundum Meir UK. The six-section door spans 4m to provide easy access to the garage and painted in a high quality black finish to achieve a period look.

Cab Ellis said: “We’re delighted with our new garage and thankful to Rundum Meir for the sliding doors which have made the dream a reality. When we started on the project we researched numerous garage door types, but we struggled to find one that was out of the ordinary, automated and available in the stable-door style we sought.

“Danesch and the team at Rundum Meir were fantastic. Following an initial visit to our home, they helped us explore the options within our available budget and the door that they proposed was perfect. With the windows, it is great to be able to see our Super Snipes in all their glory with ease.

“This particular Super Snipe model holds fond memories for me as we had one when I was a child. They have so much character and are a real head-turner today, usually accompanied by the question ‘is it an ‘Awk?’ given their similarities. It’s not of course, it’s the Hawk’s more refined cousin!”

The side sliding sectional door installed here demonstrates how Rundum Meir is able to develop a bespoke solution for most applications. All its doors are designed in the UK, hand crafted in Germany and assembled back in the UK prior to installation.
In addition to many different varieties of timber, Rundum Meir routinely manufactures garage doors in high strength extruded aluminium, as well as special materials such as glass and façade substrates. These can be designed as side sliding sectional doors, side sliding ‘round the corner’ doors or up and over options.
