Roller Garage Doors

A roller door is a famil­iar sight on shop fronts and indus­tri­al units, but you may not be aware of the ben­e­fits of a res­i­den­tial garage door which has a roller open­ing mechanism.

Roller Garage Door materials

Our entire roller door range is con­struct­ed from insu­lat­ed alu­mini­um, which can be pur­chased in a paint­ed or lam­i­nat­ed fin­ish. There are 13 paint­ed colours avail­able and 3 lam­i­nat­ed tim­ber-grain effects. For a full break­down of dif­fer­ence between mate­ri­als, read our Garage Door Mate­ri­als Guide

Alu­mini­um is a very light and head-wear­ing met­al, mak­ing it ide­al for garage doors. It’s very sta­ble and will not dete­ri­o­rate in harsh weath­er con­di­tions. Our roller garage doors are con­struct­ed from alu­mini­um with an insu­lat­ed core, mak­ing them ide­al for a garage which is attached to your home.

A garage door which opens with a roller mech­a­nism is a sleek and sim­ple solu­tion, espe­cial­ly if you don’t have a lot of room direct­ly inside or out­side the garage itself. A roller garage opens from the bot­tom and slides direct­ly upwards, rolling itself around at the top with­in a com­pact cylinder.

As it opens in this way, the sec­tions of the door have to be small in order to allow a tight roll to be made when it’s opened. This is why roller doors have thin hor­i­zon­tal pan­els rather than a smooth finish.

Ben­e­fits of a Roller Garage Door

Roller garage doors have many ben­e­fits, one of the most obvi­ous is that they take up a very small amount of room. Both the door and the mech­a­nism are as com­pact as pos­si­ble, and nei­ther pro­trudes out of the garage open­ing itself.

If you have lim­it­ed space and need to park your car close to the door – either out­side or inside the garage – then the door can still be oper­at­ed as it opens ver­ti­cal­ly, rather than stick­ing out into your dri­ve­way or into the garage space.

  • Allows for max­i­mum pos­si­ble dri­ve-through width
  • Sim­ple to operate
  • Ide­al for those with lim­it­ed space
  • No inter­nal tracks
  • Avail­able in a vari­ety of colours and finishes
  • Auto­mat­ic open­ing as standard

  • 77mm roller doors are​‘stan­dard type’ and 55mm roller doors are the com­pact ver­sion. If your garage door open­ing is on the small side, then the com­pact roller door may be the best option for you.
  • Our roller doors come in either Paint­ed or Lam­i­nat­ed fin­ish­es. The avail­able colours vary depend­ing on the fin­ish you choose. For more stan­dard colours, choose Paint­ed. If you’d like a wood­grain effect then Lam­i­nat­ed is the way to go.
  • No Box, Half Box and Full Box refers to the cas­ing that cov­ers the roll when your door is open. For stan­dard garages where the door is mount­ed inside the entrance­way, no box is required. Where the roll is locat­ed with­in or out­side the garage open­ing, a half or full box is recommended.
