Ideal for Low Headroom garages

The Vortex has been specially designed and manufactured to offer a box size that is 40-50% smaller than the standard roller garage door. This small box size allows those with low headroom allowance in their garage to take advantage of this quality roller door.

The small roll size is achieved through innovative lath construction. The curtain is manufactured with extruded aluminium profiles, with the lath sizes used varying and therefore creating a smaller roll when open.

Wind Resistance

The supreme construction levels of the Vortex has led to the roller shutter achieving a Class 5 Wind Loading Classification for doors up to 6 metres wide, and can withstand winds of up to an impressive 114mph. This certification proves that the Vortex has been tested and can resist wind loads of 160pa in accordance with BS EN 12424 and BS EN 12444.


The Vortex roller door was initially designed and manufactured as a security shutter for doors and windows, meaning it has been constructed with effective security since its conception. The extruded aluminium curtain construction offers excellent levels of strength and durability. Each lath features an end-retention system for great impact resistance - this prevents unwanted intruders forcing the curtain out of the guide rails.

Electric Operation

With electric operation as standard (manual operation available), two hand transmitters are included with every door, allowing you to operate the door and enter your garage without leaving your vehicle. Smart phone control is also available as an optional extra, allowing the operation of your roller door from an app - an increasingly popular choice for those utilising home automation systems. Wireless keypads are also available as an optional extra.
