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.
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.
Roller garage doors have many benefits, one of the most obvious is that they take up very little 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.
Unlike other door types, this also means that you have maximum use of your garage space, particularly near to the ceiling. While other door styles have opening mechanisms which take up space at the top of your garage or down the side of the opening, the roller sits directly above the doorway (either within, just inside or – if you have very limited space – just outside the opening), allowing you to make the most of the space you have for storage. Roller doors come with an automatic opening as standard.
PLEASE NOTE – You will need a power supply within your garage in order to fit an automated door. If you do not have a power supply connected then please talk to us about manual options.
