Thermaglide Roller Shutters

Thermaglide Insulated Roller Doors

Thermaglide no longer exist as a manufacturer as the BRP Group went into administration earlier this year and the Thermaglide original brand was not continued. Some parts are still available and we have been informed manufacturers warranties will still remain for a period.

Take a look at the Seceuroglide Roller Garage Door - a superior quality alternative insulated roller garage door, or the superb Hormann Rollmatic.

Thermaglide roller door
The clean lines of the Thermaglide roller door are attractive in any setting. The colourful choice of finishes can provide either an accent or a complement to existing finishes. Thermaglide is a high performance roller door designed to give thermal and acoustic insulating properties much higher than the average garage door, and includes a variety of features and functions that put this door at the very top of its technology.

The Thermaglide with its insulated aluminium lath design is vertically opening – allowing vehicles to be parked right up to the door, and with just 270mm headroom requirement (300mm for larger doors), the ‘compact when coiled’ door gives superior headroom and increased overhead storage space.
A remote control motor which includes an ear piercing 90dB forced lift alarm is fitted as standard, and along with many other security and safety features, makes the Thermaglide roller garage door the ultimate choice.

Thermaglide 55
Thermaglide 55 insulated doorWhere headroom is especially tight the Thermaglide 55 has all the features of Thermaglide but requires only 205mm of internal or external headroom for the roll and hood cover.

The Thermaglide 55 roller door can be fitted to the exterior front face of the garage, the ideal solution for flat roof garages with little or no internal headroom. Better still the lath has horizontal profiling detail to both concave and convex faces so doors fitted externally have the same attractive detailing as those fitted internally.

Due to the manufacturers of these garage doors going into administration for the second time in less than 9 months, products from this group are, in the main, unavailable. We are informed that some may become available shortly due to part of the manufacturing plant being purchased by a third party. However our experiences during the last 9 months have raised serious doubts about the long term warranty and quality aspects of these doors and therefore we will no longer be offering them as part of our range.

This should not cause concern to any customer as there are many alternative options, most of superior quality, from manufacturers such Hormann, Garador, SWS, Carteck, Cotswold GRP Rundum Meir and Novoferm, all of which are companies that have traded for many years producing only quality products to the very latest standards required and offer excellent warranty and after sales support.

Style and Design
Cardale’s Thermaglide 55 roller doors feature a simple and practical horizontal lath design for the ‘curtain’. Each lath is formed from double skinned aluminium with a foam filling and has a 55mm profile. This helps insulate your garage from noise and heat loss – particularly important if it’s built into your house. The slimmer lath profile results in a smaller coil then the standard thermaglide, when the door is opened and is ideal for fitting in a garage with restricted headroom.

Thermaglide 55 doors offer a choice of three colours and one woodgrain finish. The timeless horizontal design and choice of finishes means Thermaglide roller doors blend with most house styles. They can also accommodate different shapes of garage opening like curves and arches - as they are designed for mounting behind the garage opening.

Operating Gear
Automated as standard, Thermaglide 55 doors are ideal for when the opening access is at a premium. The curtain operates vertically into the headroom above the door to form a compact roll. This action does not kick out and is ideal for short driveways or cars parked close to the opening, in or out of the garage.
The 55 model is now available as a a manually operated door if you prefer not to have remote control

Thermaglide 55 roller doors are automated as standard. Supplied with two hand transmitters, a safe edge “stop and reverse” obstruction detector and an integral 90db alarm system should anyone attempt to force up the door.
