Roller Doors for Domestic Properties

Posted on June 3, 2018 at 11:39 am

Domestic roller doors are designed to make homes safer, more secure and more attractive. They are a popular option in the UK due to the multitude of benefits they offer to the average homeowner, giving them the power to change their homes for the better. Choosing a roller shutter door for a domestic property has never been easier. 

When you are in the market for a new garage door, you might be finding that your old one is not doing its job any more. If you start to notice signs like draughts, cold spots and rusty opening mechanisms, then it may be time to think about your options. These are some of the reasons why a roller door is well worth your serious consideration: 

  • They are very convenient. The door opens up at the click of a button. Usually, remote control operated, roller doors will open up very quickly to allow you fast and simple access, straight away. You won’t have to open it up manually.
  • They offer you very good security. When you choose an electric opening door, this will offer you the most security. On a good quality door, there should be a mechanism that attaches the door curtain to the barrel, offering you maximum security. This makes the door very sturdy, so it is incredibly difficult for someone to break in – they won’t be able to jam anything underneath to get purchase and force the door open.
  • The insulation is very good. All roller doors will offer you good insulation, but if you want the very best insulation then choose a double skinned door. They are usually made from aluminium and have thicker panels, offering you additional insulation. This can be a good option if you use your garage for other purposes, such as a gym, or as a storage space.
  • The curtain opens up vertically. This will save you a great deal of space, so you can make the most of the space you have inside your garage and outside of it as well, parking your vehicle as close as you like to the door. The roller opens up neatly inside of the garage.

Of course, when you are shopping for your home, appearance is a top concern – there’s no getting away from it, looks are important! To get the maximum aesthetic benefit, make sure the roller is placed behind the opening to disguise it; all you will see is the door sheet from the outside of the garage. It will roll up inside, keeping the roller mechanism out of view. Doors will look simple and stylish, plus they are available in a whole range of finishes to give you the appearance you want. Choose from various RAL colours, as well as wood effect finishes. The options are incredibly varied and you will be sure to find something that suits your home, whether it is the most modern of new builds or a traditional cottage. The simplicity of a roller door will really add to its versatility.
