Roller Shutter Garage Doors

Roller Shutter Garage Door



The roller shutter garage door has to be one of the neatest garage door solutions available, with vertical operation and no internal tracking mechanism inside the garage at all.
This door action provides you with more room on your driveway and the option for accessable additional storage space above where a standard up & over door would open. You can also park right up to the door, outside or inside and still operate it.

The whole door will usually roll into a size of about 300 x 300mm in a position behind, underneath or in front of the garage lintel. With an almost limitless selection of colours and woodgrain finishes as well as most doors being made to order the roller door is a garage door worth looking at. The roller garage door is the most diverse type of door in terms of installation postioning and can be installed on practically any shape or size of garage

Roller shutter garage doors are available insulated and non-insulated with the options of spring assisted manual or remote control electric operation.

Over the last 10 or so years the higher specification double skin aluminium roller garage door has been reducing in price until now it is very favourable compared to the single skin steel roller garage door. Some careful consideration must be given however to the specification of the insulated roller garage door as there are many doors manufactured that do not meet the stringent CE regulations in the UK so are technically 'illegal' in their operation.

All roller garage doors are usually made to fit your opening perfectly with no particular stock sizes available.
The ideal installation is normally mounting the roller curtain internally to give the maximum width and height when open but a roller door can fit inbetween and even externally to your structural opening with a hood enclosure to protect the curtain whilst remaining visually appealing.

for odd shaped garages

There are very few applications when a roller door will not fit and the only compromise is that the design of all the different types is always going to be horizontal lines.

 Benefits of a Roller Shutter Garage Door

Excellent security offered by the design of the door itself.

Rubber seal to the bottom of the curtain to prevent dust, leaves, mice, etc. entering the garage.

Open and close the garage door at the push of a button.

Ideal for driveways with little or limited space.

No outward swing at all

Applications

The roller garage door is the most versatile of doors as it can be manufactured to almost any size or colour (certain slat types only).

Pictured right: Facing onto a house with a roller shutter garage door installed to provide security to sports car.

As the roller garage door rises vertically this means it can be installed behind any shape of structural opening such as archways, etc. Another very useful application is when a garage has a particularly high ceiling or when tracks into the garage would be running in front of a side door or similar obstruction.

There are very few applications when a roller door will not fit and the only compromise is that the design of all the different types is always going to be horizontal lines.

If vertical lines are required due to certain planning restrictions or visual preference then why not consider the excellent

A roller shutter garage door can be:

  • Ideal for arched garage openings to maximise drivethrough height
  • Fitted onto double, triple or more garages with a multi channel remote control system - ideal for ease of use.
  • The remote controls use the very latest rolling code  technology for security. your garage door can only be operated by your transmitter.

Finishes and Colours

The single skin and insulated roller doors are available in a choice of standard factory finished colours as standard and not available to be painted on site. For an additional charge you can have almost any RAL or BS colour as a powdercoat finish only to both sides of the curtain. Guides, endplates and hoods can be matched or contrasted.

There are 12 standard Seceuroglide paint finishes.

More recently there are tough vinyl coated woodgrain finishes available specifically designed to match replacement windows and front entrance doors as well as giving an attractive maintenance free option to compliment many property styles.

Current woodgrain laminate finishes available are Golden Oak, Mahogany and Rosewood

General Sizing Information

The domestic insulated aluminium roller door is available in sizes up to 5400mm wide and 4000mm high although we can produce many other types of heavier duty commercial roller shutters with all the necessary safety devices for domestic use in sizes up to 12000mm wide and 8000mm high.

The only restriction that different sizes may impose is on the type and colour of slat used to construct the door. Please call or email your enquiry whatever the size as we have never refused any enquiry to date.

Security

Most roller shutter doors are fairly secure as standard with manual versions having sliding bars internally locking into the side channels and remote control doors using various different locking devices held from the barrel that the curtain is attached to.

The diagram below shows the typical installation position of a roller shutter door when installed inside the structural opening of the garage. When fitted like this the maximum width and height is normally achieved although a loss of garage length has to be considered.

Fitting Behind the Opening. The diagram shows the typical installation position of a roller shutter door when installed inside the structural opening of the garage. When fitted like this the maximum width and height is normally achieved although a loss of garage length has to be considered.

Fitting Inbetween the Opening. The diagram below shows a roller shutter garage door fitted inbetween the structural opening and would normally mean fitting underneath the lintel as well. This position is quite normal but will not give such a wide drivethrough width or height when open.

Fitting Outside the Opening. The diagram below shows the roller garage door installed outside on the front face of the garage opening. This is unusual but gives maximum length, width and height in most cases. A complete hood is required to protect the curtain roll and this will need powdercoating along with the guides and endplates to complete the visual appearance.

Key features Summary 

Safety

Safety is a fundamental concern in the continuing development of the range. All SeceuroGlide, SupaRolla, Novorol and Rollmatic roller doors are fully CE compliant and come as standard with Safety Edge collision detection and Anti-Fallback devices where required. Infra red beams on their own as a safety device are not legal!!

Space saving

A tight coiling curtain design and discreet optional box covers maximize the drive-through height of your garage - ideal for larger vehicles such as 4x4s or people carriers. There is no intrusion into overhead storage space within the garage, and without the kickout of traditional 'up and over' doors you can park safely inches from the door.

Insulation

Insulated foam-filled slats, combined with superior guide rail inserts, bottom slat rubber seals and a curtain that finishes higher than competitor designs.
help increase energy efficiency and reduce heating costs, with a typical U value of 5.2 W/m2 K.

Security

Automatic anti-lift locking and SeceuroSmart receiver units featuring rolling-code technology ensure there is no other insulated roller door available more secure than a SeceuroGlide. For the very highest security specification in roller garage doors see the SeceuroGlide Excel.

Peace of Mind

Each roller garage door is backed by a comprehensive two year guarantee covering all manufactured parts. In addition, the Somfy tubular motor is supplied with a full five year manufacturer’s warranty, and textured woodgrain finishes carry a limited ten year guarantee.
