Why Roller Shutters Are So Popular

Posted on June 19, 2014 at 8:13 am

Roller shutters are a type of garage door which is currently very popular throughout the UK. A more traditional model of garage door would be the up and over door, where you lift the door up and push it over the garage floor. The roller shutter is quite different from this, and involves a more complex mechanism. With one of these doors, it functions through the use of a tracking mechanism, whereby the door is rolled up by a motor. As it is entirely automatic, involving no manual effort, the door will often come with an automatic opening function, where with a push of a button you can open the garage. This makes the model ideal for those looking to store a vehicle within their garage, as it doesn’t require you to leave the vehicle and open the door, potentially exposing yourself to bad weather.
