Roller Garage Doors

What is a Roller Shutter Garage Door?

Roller shutter garage doors are one of the most versatile door options available; with smooth vertical opening and no internal tracks, they operate smoothly.

Manufactured with either steel or aluminium, the roller door is essentially a curtain that consists of slats that can roll around itself at the top of the door opening, aluminium doors offering insualtion.

Our range of doors can offer great security levels, safety, a huge choice of colours and finishes and space-saving qualities.

We have various options dependent on your own requirements, and doors can be installed in various challenging applications!

Most signigicantly, the roller shutter garage door demands minimal space requirements. The roller shutter’s vertical opening allows owners to optimise the length of their garage and driveway, as well as to park right up to the door with no obstructions when it is in operation. The opening mechanism also means you can safely park tall vehicles, like 4×4’s, close to the door without obstructing the opening and closing of the door.

The small size of a roller door’s the curtain roll means the door can be installed in locations that may have limited or obstructed headroom – a solution that other door types cannot offer. If you have an awkwardly placed meter, fuse box or internal door that may block garage door mechanisms, then a roller shutter door may be the answer.

The average curtain roll size is around 300mm-350mm in diameter, although this may be larger depending on the installation position and the material chosen for the curtain.

Most roller shutter doors are made to order, and can therefore be ordered to your exact specifications, whatever the size. Plus, a roller shutter garage door, unlike various other door types, can be fitted behind, between OR in front of the opening!

We aim to provide the safest roller shutter doors available.

Safety is a fundamental concern in the continuing development of our range. Some careful consideration must be given to the specification of an insulated roller garage door. There are many roller doors manufactured that still do not meet the stringent CE regulations in the UK – these are technically ‘illegal’.


Low price is guaranteed low security – when it comes to Roller Shutters, you get what you pay for.

Most roller shutter doors are secure as standard, with manually operated versions that feature sliding bars that lock internally into the side channels. Remote control electric doors employ various different locking devices, normally held from the barrel that the curtain is attached to. A cheap, basic electric aluminium roller door with basic internal mechanisms is quite easy to break into. You must make sure that if you require security you know exactly what you are looking for!

If security is a priority, we recommend looking at the U.K’s first remote control garage door that is Police and insurance approved. It offers a Level 1 ‘Secured by Design’ rating, is approved by the LPCB, and is manufactured by SWS to resist forced entry attempts via its patented internal mechanisms and enhancements.
