The garage should not be the part of your house that is out of bounds simply because of bad door technology. Incorrectly fitted garage doors can make the entire room unusable as storage or even to use as an extra room for DIY, car repair, band practice and more. At Arridge Garage Doors we are experts when it comes to perfectly fitting doors to your home that could revolutionise this often forgotten room. One of the best options for many houses are our roller doors which are sturdy, secure, reliable and come in either insulated or uninsulated varieties. Only you will know whether you want your garage door to be insulated or not since it may well be that you use this room only for parking the car. Alternatively, it might be a project room you spend a lot of time in throughout the year.
A roller door is a great investment regardless of whether it is insulated or not. Rollers maximise the amount of space you have in your garage due to their compact design and the fact they are fitted to the rear side of the garage opening. This means that you will not require a timber frame to complete the installation while neither compromising strength or integrity. Different types of doors will open outwards into the drive, making them impossible to install on short driveways whereas rollers simply move up vertically. Our roller doors are also great security pieces since all of the mechanics of the door are behind the brickwork of your garage, out of sight and reach. The foot of the door also has an aluminium rail with a rubber seal to ensure that wind and debris cannot get beneath the door. We can also offer you doors that are made to measure for your particular garage between the sizes of 3 and 19 ft wide at no extra cost, making this a truly bespoke investment. The only potential drawback is the size and construction of your garage since you must have headroom between the ceiling and the lintel to make a proper installation.
Insulated Vs Non-Insulated
Our insulated garage doors are fully automated for your convenience while also being finished with aluminium slats that provide strength and versatility. The slats themselves are foam filled to give them both thermal and acoustic insulation ensuring that if you live near a road, those winter days won’t be as noisy or biting.
The insulated variety itself has a neater appearance due to the full box housing which covers the roller assembly for a great look both outside and inside. It can also be fitted between pillars so long as you have enough headroom because there is less space required for this model. Most importantly, this door comes with a 10 year slat guarantee and 5 year motor guarantee. There is also a light included as well as an infra-red safety light.
The plastic coating on the non-insulated variety is for 5 years, while the door is available in both manual and automatic varieties.
