Material

Roller:

Aluminium Roller door slats are foam-filled, double-skinned slats that are joined together by a profile at the top of each slat. with either a tube motor set out of the way inside the roller barrel

Sectional:

Sectional garage doors are available in single-skin and double-skin galvanised steel panels of varying depths, GRP (fibreglass) panels, timber panels and aluminium panels. The panel finishes vary greatly in the overall effects that the panels display. The economy of single skin steel, the strength and superb insulation of double skinned insulated steel, the beauty and warmth of timber and GRP, and the modern feel of aluminium are all options for consideration for sectional doors.
Generally, steel is the most economical, followed by aluminium, GRP, and finally timber, which is the most expensive option as they are handmade and produced in well-selected timber species with minimal risk of warping. Again, the best sectional doors are produced in Germany, and GRP sectional doors only in the UK.

Up and Over:

They are available in steel, timber, Upvc and GRP in various different designs and finishes. Many designs incorporate windows for light and visual appeal.

The vast majority of our Up and Over doors are made from Powder Coated Steel which is a very long lasting finish that protects from the elements and is available in any colour.

Up and Over garage doors are available in 2 main operating mechanisms: Canopy and Retractable.

Side Hinges:

Security

Roller:

Roller garage doors are generally fairly secure, excluding the single skinned steel door in its basic form. Double skinned aluminium roller doors are generally more secure. However, security can be quite a big issue with roller doors, and many cheaper doors do have a weak point in that they can lack proper mechanisms at the top of the curtain; these sufficiently hold the door secure and prevent a forced opening from the bottom. The leading manufacturers, however, do use various methods to overcome this.

Sectional:

sectional doors are secure by the very nature of their design and mechanism; with door panels set behind a sturdy steel framework, and generally five or more rollers either side on a standard door, great lateral resistance is provided. The only weak point is when a basic handle and locking system is used on a manually operated door, meaning that if the lock is compromised, access would be quiet and easy for an intruder. Most leading manufacturers use a high-security europrofile cylinder locking system, with strong, rotary latches secured inside to the side tracks.

Many high quality modern electric operators are fitted as an option to sectional doors, and have excellent extra security design features that are over and above just the motor and towing arm attachment, holding the door closed. A good quality electric operator installed with a double skinned steel sectional door will be a big challenge to any would-be intruder!

Up and Over

With our Up and Over doors, you’ll enjoy the perfect combination of aesthetics, functional ability, safety, security, and performance. These doors are built to meet our exacting standards Just some of the features of this door include heavy-duty strengthening ribs – to meet industry requirements, we’ve increased the number of door braces at the rear of the door for maximum security. All of our Up and Over doors also come with an inside locking handle, heavy-duty springs.

All of our Up and Over Doors come with either 50mm or 70mm frame depending on mechanism. . These doors normally come in a pre-hung factory-finished steel fixing frame. This makes installation a lot simpler, plus it removes the need for a timber frame that could warp or rot, compromising the security of the door.

Installation

Roller:

A roller garage door that is produced using foam-filled, double-skinned aluminium slats, which are usually about 19mm thick, does offer a reasonable degree of insulation, but there are no accurate tested or published U-values. The roller door curtain effectively has a small gap between each slat as they interlock with each other, metal to metal. Figures are published for some manufacturers, but these have to be taken as a very rough guide as there are so many variables when installing a roller door, and many tiny gaps that can reduce the U-value quoted.

Sectional:

The majority of manufacturers making sectional garage door panels in 40mm thick, foam-filled sections, also have rubber seals between usually only four panels on a standard door and rubber seals to the top, side and bottom. On a well constructed, square garage opening you can achieve very high levels of insulation with consistent tested U-values achievable as the seals work more effectively, even when the opening may not be square. Manufacturers such as Hormann now even offer upgraded rubber seals for extra insultation, with insulated fascia panels when required

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
