Gliderol non-insulated Roller garage door made-to-measure

The Gliderol continuous curtain roller door is made to measure as standard, and comes in numerous plastisol colours, all at no extra cost. Available as a manual or automatic door. The durable exterior plastisol coating to the door curtain has a 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee. There is a 6-year guarantee on mechanical parts and 2-year guarantee on automation. Only suitable for installation onto the rear surface of a structural opening. This door cannot be fitted on the front of an opening. For under the lintel/between the piers installations a rugby post frame and facia would have to be fitted first. Entrance width and height will be reduced. For such installations go to Aluroll insulated roller door.
  • The heavy duty galvanized steel guide channels fix behind the brick piers and guide the curtain up and down.
  • There are 1” (25mm) guide channels on single doors upto 11ft wide, and 2” (50mm) guide channels on double doors over 11ft wide.
  • The curtain edges have industrial nylon webbing stapled each side for smooth quiet gliding in the channels.
  • The main roller barrel has a central shaft which sits on a large gallows bracket at each end.
  • The brackets are included. These need to be well fixed as they take the full weight of the door.
  • Two point steel rod operated locking with keys is included on the manual door.
  • This locking mechanism and handle is not included if the automatic version of the door is purchased.
  • A deep bottom rubber built into a reinforced bottom rail minimising draught and debris getting under the door.
  • The reinforced bottom rail also adds strength and rigidity to the bottom of the door minimising deflection in the door and greatly adding to the security.
  • Roller diameter is 420mm on doors upto 7’ high.
  • Roller diameter is 450mm on doors upto 8’ high.
  • Any unused door height remains on the roll.
  • If headroom available is less than the roller diameter the door will hang down in the opening and entrance height will be reduced.
  • Installation in this way is quite normal but please check the entrance height you will achieve.
  • For reduced headroom roller doors go to Gliderol Mini Roller.
  • On the automatic door the Glidermatic motor is factory installed into the either Left Hand or Right Hand end of the roller (looking out). Comes with control box with courtesy light and 2 hand sets.

Size help for Gliderol non insulated roller doors.

  • All Gliderol continuous curtain roller doors are made to measure.
  • Sizes shown are overall curtain sizes including the curtain that sits in the guide channel each side.
  • Sizes available from 1200mm wide to 5000mm wide and from 1200mm high to 5000mm high.
  • Doors are made in 12” or 300mm height increments. Any unused door height remains on the roll. Order the next height up, for example if floor to lintel height is 7’2”, then order the 8’0” high door.
  • All widths are made to measure to your exact size.
  • On roller doors UPTO 11’0” wide, 25mm of curtain sits in the guides each side, please order door at least 50mm wider than aperture.
  • On roller doors OVER 11’0” wide, 50mm of curtain sits in the guides each side, please order door at least 100mm wider than aperture. 

Ordering size example:

Aperture size is 2300mm, 25mm of door curtain has to sit in guide channel each side. Overall curtain size – ORDERING SIZE – is 2350mm.
Minimum reveal each side 90mm on SINGLE doors upto 11’0” wide on A guides.
Minimum reveal each side 125mm on DOUBLE doors over 11’0” wide on AA guides.
N.B. If Glidermatic motor to be fitted on either Left Hand or Right Hand side looking out, please add 20mm to the above reveal sizes.

If side room is limited, timber uprights can be added to create large enough reveals to fit the door.
If the reveals are wide enough, order the door that is wider than the ordering size calculated using the above formula. This hides the visible edges of the galvanized guide channels and gives a neater appearance. Also adds security. Approximately 30-40mm each side will fully hide the guide channel, when viewed from the front.


Headroom requirement for Gliderol roller doors.

If the specified amount of headroom behind the lintel is not available the door can still be installed, some of the roll will show below the lintel and the entrance height will be reduced.
If headroom is limited, you can create enough headroom by building a timber facia and installing the roller behind it. Check sufficient entrance height is achieved.
