Vertico Insulated Aluminium
The SWS Vertico. An insulated aluminium round the corner garage door is a door made precisely to your measurements and requirements without any extra charge.
Manufactured in Germany to stringent engineering standards, the incredibly elegant Vertico garage door provides numerous benefits to you and your garage inside and out.
There is very little encroachment of internal vehicle driving area and, with the horizontal track running arrangement, driveways are kept clear to enable maximum parking area outside of the garage.
The Vertico door is constructed of the highest quality insulated aluminium slats with an exceptionally high quality powder coating finish inside and out for a long lasting low maintenance garage door system
Each Vertico garage door is made precisely to measure for every opening and it will be fitted to maximise the available width and height for convenience when entering or exiting your garage.
The Vertico garage door comes as standard with radio remote control, motor drive and electronic hindrance stop. Two programmable door opening positions enable the user to have the choice of either car access or a narrower pedestrian access at the simple push of a button.
The electric motor guide channel is integrated elegantly into the wall guide channel not down the centre of the garage like traditional motor drives keeping the centre of the garage free of tracking. Some people worry about losing a wall in their garage but you can either create a false wall and shelving system and the door goes behind this wall or take the view that this wall needing to be used for the door will force you to keep your garage tidy at all times!!
Unlike older timber round the corner systems with channel guides cut below floor level the Vertico offers a surface mounted raised ground rail which also acts as a weather bar - not a pebble or dirt trap! The components have been designed as one complete system ensuring a precise operation at all times.
Up until recently the only garage door systems sliding round the corner were constructed from timber panels installed together on site with a choice of hardware from companies such as Hillaldam Coburn, Henderson or Ellard. Although this method can still used today it is very time consuming to manufacture and install, expensive to construct and does not offer particularly good sealing properties. The automation of such a system is also very difficult to certify to the latest safety standards - whilst also being very expensive.
The Vertico has been specifically designed as a remote control door system as standard with emphasis on solving all previous shortfalls in other round the corner garage door systems.
Each door includes as standard the following:
* Any size up to 5600mm wide
* Requires only 50mm lintel headroom internally
* Only 130mm degree of radius at the corner to save lateral wall space.
* Superior surface stability
* Partial remote control opening option for pedestrian access
* Purpose made to size as standard
* Motor guide channel integrated into wall guide channel
* Highest quality aluminium slats - double skinned, foam filled, insulated
* Radio remote control operation with electronic safety stop sensor
* Emergency unlocking from inside
* Courtesy light when door is opened switching off after a few minutes automatically
* All components high quality powder coated in large choice of colours
* Top and bottom roller for smooth, silent operation
Available in 10 standard colours the Vertico can also be finished in a further 36 Renolit woodgrain finish colours at an exytra charge. The Renolit woodgrain finishes are very tough and carry a 10 year gurantee to back this up. Beautiful woodgrain effects such as light oak, dark oak, natural oak, Rosewood, Oregon Pine and many others to ensure the best co ordination with your home
This diagram shows the Vertico door top and bottom track detail as viewed from the side and the small amount of headroom required to accomodate the door.
The top track fixed to the back of the lintel or the ceiling depending upon headroom available. The bottom track can be lowered into the floor for a lower threshold if required but as standard does perform a very good weather barrier.
Vertico is made according to the new EU standards

The Vertico garage door can be specified to open in either direction and if there is not sufficient side room a false panel section can be inserted. For very large openings bi-parting doors are possible in even or uneven widths.
