Yorkshire-based garage door specialists, ABi, are to provide two Hörmann ALR67 thermo sectional doors for the brand new Albert’s Schloss bar opening at the Manchester Albert Hall in October.

The Grade II listed venue, which is being refurbished by two of Manchester’s biggest bar operators, The Trof Group and Revolution Vodka Bar, is undergoing a £3.5 million project with the aim of providing one of the best bar and entertainment venues in the world.

ABi were contacted by the pair to provide brand new industrial sectional doors for the front of the building so that in the warmer months they can completely open up the venue. As well as the ability to provide additional entertainment space, the Hörmann ALR67 also comes with unrivalled thermal qualities thanks to its ‘DURATEC’ glazing and insulated steel sections. The door also has a thermal break and is robust making it ideal for a busy restaurant, bar or venue.

Luke Pierce, manager at ABi Garage Doors, said:

“This is an extremely exciting job for us. Whilst we have provided industrial doors for a number of different commercial projects in the Yorkshire region previously, the complexities of the project and the purpose of the doors make this a really interesting project.”

“The new Albert’s Schloss bar is one of the most unique jobs we have ever undertaken in our 25 year history, but thankfully, our team has vast experience when dealing with large commercial clients which means they are able to work to strict timescales.”

In the past, ABi has worked with an extensive range of commercial clients across the North of England, including Esh Build, Yorparks and a number of housing developers and independent house builders across the Yorkshire region.

“Over the past 12 months we have been trying to develop closer working relationships with commercial clients, regional house builders and tradesman, so we feel this job is definitely a step in the right direction,” added Luke. “Because we can provide a large range of construction products from front doors and garage doors to industrial products we can be the one stop shop for all businesses looking for a range of quality doors.”

ABi Garage Doors is a well-known Yorkshire-based garage door provider and one of Hörmann’s main partners, allowing them to offer all the latest doors to their clients.
