Application Notes:

Roller garage doors are one of the most popular replacement garage door types installed within the UK.
We advise that although they may all look the same please do ask a lot of questions when it comes to the basic build, security and safety features as well as the guarantee periods and get it in writing. There are a lot of low quality, even illegal roller garage doors selling on the UK market which have been purely manufactured down to the lowest possible specification and they will potentially waste your money.
Roller garage doors fall into two main categories - Steel single skin and double skin aluminium and this steel roller door type is perfectly suited for a lower security budget application, especially if you only want a manually operated door.

Expect to pay between £600 and £800 inc. VAT installed (subject to location) for a single width size door with a height of approximately 7'0" (2134mm) and a standard fit behind the opening. This price will cover all sizes of up to about 8'0" (2430mm) wide and about 8'0" high

This will be a fully finished coloured surface from a choice of colours and with a tough plastic coating.
locking will be included and is a basic centre positioned thumb turn type placing 2 bars into the side guides internally. The door curtain is balanced by an internal spring system inside the barrel the curtain rolls onto and this makes the operation easy

Replacing an existing garage door with a roller shutter type door usually ends up giving quite a bit more width and potentially height so we consider a standard size for a roller door to be about 7'6" wide and up to 7'0 high. This also means they are installed to the inside face of the garage with the roll going up behind the lintel space. A sub frame is not necessary, only steel guides for the curtain fitted directly to the garage structure.
Most roller doors are made to order anyway but for a general price for a standard finish colour option.  

Manual locking as standard is by 2 locking bars internally that locate into the side guides.
This lock can be operated by a key externally and also internally and the lock can also be specified even if you have the electric option to provide additional security or security in a power cut situation.

Additional Costs

Other Sizes

Gliderol steel roller shutter garage doorTo generalise on the prices here is relatively easy as the scale of pricing simply climbs as you go up through the sizes to choose from and a single roller door category is right up to 11 feet wide and although there are standard price band breaks the doors are always made to order in width and height to maximise your garage opening.

Optional Woodgrain Laminate Colour

Finishes to the front surface in a choice of finishes such as Golden Oak or Rosewood laminates – about £90 -  £120 more

Remote Control Electric Operation

This will depend on a few factors but for a standard motor with 2 hand held controllers it will add another £350 - £450 for a good quality model specific to the door model. (This assumes the operator is being fitted at the same time as the door for the price)
The motor drive can be on either side of the roller door and comes complete with an internal manual override system as standard.
The power required is minimal at the standard 240V with about a 3-4 amp power draw. The safety for this type of motor is in a kind of power surge protection with the curtain stopping almost immediately when obstructed.

*Important Note*
We are fully aware that there are many roller doors advertised all over the internet at lower prices than this and also for supposed insulated aluminium double skinned doors, but be very careful and do your research on any type of roller garage door that looks too good to be true on the price. It will be!
There are many roller doors being manufactured and sold which are not compliant with UK regulations and are technically illegal for use in more than one way. The other problem we see almost daily are roller doors being sold which have very dubious construction methods leading to a very short lifespan.
Be careful what you think you are buying!!
