Roller Doors - Technical Specification
Standard Single Skin Gliderol Roller Garage Doors
Safe and Secure
More so than a good aesthetic finish, the most important wish for your garage door is that it keeps all your prized belongings in the safest possible dwelling. Gliderol doors fit behind the brickwork, meaning even the most unconventional and obscurely shaped openings can be accommodated with their state of the art doors. The doors also have full height steel guides and dual locking bars which run the full width of the roller door. Further to this, the aluminium bottom rail adds a further level of protection meaning nobody untoward is going to be able to get in and nobody is going to be able to get your valuable property out.
Saving Space, Saving Money
Unlike traditional up and over doors that take up so much space within the garage, roller doors open vertically allowing the roll to be stored in the space above the lintel of your garage. This enables you to utilise the full extent of both your drive and your garage. Properties with shorter driveways (as most modern houses seem to have) and people who need lots of hanging space within garages could really benefit from having one of our sterling roller garage doors installed.
Installing your door
The installation requires no separate frame and you should have no trouble in getting it up and running. To assist you, simple easy to follow installation instructions will be delivered along with your door.
The biggest concern with a roller door is having the capacity to house and conceal the rolled up section of the door within the garage. We have provided you with helpful guidelines for the minimum headroom clearance required (from the lowest point of the ceiling to the top of the opening) and these are, for domestic installation, as follows:
- OPENING HEIGHT up to 2135mm HEADROOM REQUIRED 430mm
- OPENING HEIGHT up to 2440mm HEADROOM REQUIRED 450mm
- OPENING HEIGHT up to 2740mm HEADROOM REQUIRED 450mm
- OPENING HEIGHT up to 3055mm HEADROOM REQUIRED 470mm
If you can’t meet these opening heights then a facia panel can be provided, however this will reduce the opening height of the door.
The door will also require a minimum internal side room clearance of 90mm for a single manual domestic door and 150mm for a double manually operated domestic door. If you’re having a motor fitted then you need to add a further 20mm on the side the motor will fit.
A Roller Garage Door With A Comprehensive Guarantee
Gliderol roller garage doors are built to be able to cope with the wear and tear of life and of the weather; you don’t want things falling apart the minute the next-door neighbour’s kid scores a too-vigorous goal against your garage or if there’s a particularly ferocious storm.
As long as the door is installed correctly and reasonably maintained, we offer an impressive range of guarantees. Electrical components are guaranteed for 2 years, mechanical parts for 6 years and the door finish itself for a whopping 10 years!
All Gliderol doors and operators are CE approved and marked.
Mini Single Skin Gliderol Garage Roller Doors
The Gliderol mini roller garage door is a compact version of the standard roller door with a few slight differences in terms of the space required to install the door correctly and the sizes available. With a more compact drum wheel, Gliderol mini roller garage doors are able to fit into garages with restricted headroom. Requiring just 325mm of space, this is the ideal product when space is at a premium.
Designed to be installed in exactly the same manner as the larger standard roller door, with the guides fixed to the back of the opeing and the roll concealed from view behind the lintel, the Gliderol mini roller door requires the following space to allow for the guides and roller brackets to be installed correctly.
Manual Garage Roller Doors - 90mm minimum each side of the structural opening.
Automatic (Electric) Garage Roller Doors - 90mm minumum on one side of the structural opening and 175mm minimum on the side of the door the motor is to be fit.
NB** All the above dimensions are the minimum requirements as recommended by the manufacturer.
