Hormann Advantages

  • Unlimited color matching capability for a perfect color match
  • Paint that far exceeds the quality of anything available for on-site finishing

Paint System Features

  • Galaxy Paint System is available on the following door series: Orion 3100/3200, Taurus 4200 and Phoenix 5200.
  • Choose from any of the 28 semi-custom colors or submit a sample of your desired color to your Hörmann Dealer for a genuine custom finish.
  • Galaxy Paint System is a factory applied top coat sprayed over the pre-painted steel.  This is an added layer of protection and does not affect the Limited Lifetime warranty of the sections, however, the top coat itself will be covered for a period of one (1) year against crazing, blistering, peeling, chalking, or fading as defined in the Galaxy Paint System warranty.
  • The paint system utilizes a high quality catalyzed acrylic urethane that is far superior to any exterior paints that are typically used by a painting contractor. 
  • To prevent webbing or missed spots, all components are painted separately, cured and then assembled prior to packaging.
  • Considering the cost of rollers, brushes, cleaners, drop cloths and time spent while painting the door yourself or hiring an expensive painting contractor, the Galaxy Paint System provides a more cost effective solution and will retain the superior finish much longer.
