Frequently Asked Questions

Your FAQs (frequently asked questions)

Our roller doors come fully boxed, so you can fit them below the lintel in the opening. A front panel covers any gaps. But if you would like to fit up and behind the lintel of your garage to maximise your opening then the top box is 205mm square for the 55 model and 300mm square for the 77 model.

If your garage doesn’t have another entrance, we recommend installing an external manual override. This feature lets you manually open the garage door during a power failure, allowing you to access your garage. Our external manual override systems run from the motor of the door and down the wall, situated at waist height for easy access. A lock secures the wall plate from the outside for safety. When you ever need access, simply remove the lock and insert the supplied handle to manually wind the door down.

If you’re unable to use a manual facility, we can supply a battery back-up which is trickle charged during ordinary operations, and can be activated when the power fails. This feature would allow the door to operate like normal (using your key fobs), to allow access to reset the power from inside the garage.

For the Compact 55 doors you will need 65mm on each side of the door. Meanwhile, the Deluxe 77 doors require 95mm on each side for the guide runners.

Should no room be available on the inside face of the brick, we can fit the door within the reveal instead but this does reduce the opening width of the door.

Yes, our Compact 55 and Deluxe 77 range of roller garage doors provide good insulation with their double skinned aluminium and foam filled insert. Our Compact range have a foam-filled insert of 6-8mm thick, while our larger Deluxe range, the insert is 16-18mm thick.

Our sectional door and side hinged garage doors start at 40mm thick and can be upgraded to 67mm to ensure maximum insulation is obtained.

Our doors offer high levels of security against thieves. They lack an external handle that perpetrators could force, and all of our doors come with security locking straps to press the curtain down firmly. As a result, forcing the door open becomes very difficult.

Our sectional garage doors come with high-torque motors which are constantly pushing the door in the downward position, making it extremely difficult to open without permission.

Our standard procedure is to rip out all existing frames and replace with our aluminium or steel frames. Neither of these options need treating to keep rot at bay.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a weatherproof door as the components need to be able to open and close, preventing a complete seal. However, we have taken every step we can to provide as much weather resistance as possible. This includes a double brush feature in the guide runners, a fully enclosed top box and a rubber seal in the last slat of the curtain.

We provide a complete start-to-finish service, conducting a home survey to obtain all the necessary dimensions to create your bespoke roller door.

If you’d like to order a door and fit it yourself, please feel free to get in touch with the team and we’ll issue you with a measurement guide.

FAQs

For single garage doors, typical prices start from £800 for a standard single up and over door in white. Prices can range all the way up to £2,400 for a heavily insulated sectional garage door.

Prices can vary significantly for double garage doors as the dimensions can span from 3.6m up to 5.5m. For instance, a typical residential double electric roller door with two remote key fobs would start from £2,200.

Side hinged garage doors range from £1,200-£3,100. You can personalise doors with windows, house numbers and any colour.

Pedestrian/side entrance doors range from £550-£1,250 for the door and installation from an existing side door. All doors are bespoke so we can create the perfect size door for your garage. This works well if you want to obtain a particular width for getting large items out of the door. 
If you need us to do the building work to create the opening in the wall and install a lintel, this fee is approximately £400 subject to survey.

Their security, safety and strength are just some of the many benefits that justify this popularity. 

They are known as ‘sectional’ doors due to their construction, being made of separate sections which open vertically and travel into tracks overhead. Sectional garage doors are made of separate panel sections which are locked together by specialist hinged joints. This allows the door to operate vertically with no part of the door swinging outward, this allows the door to open even when a car is pulled right up to it like roller doors – ideal for shorter driveways.

Whether you’re seeking to modernise the look of your home, improve energy efficiency, or upgrade security, our sectional garage doors provide the perfect solution.

Our garage doors are made in Britain and hold a 5 year parts & labour warranty.
