The Benefits Of A Gliderol Roller Shutter Garage Door
| Simple, space-saving operation | Versatile applications | Little maintenance required | Good choice of colours available |
There are various benefits of a roller shutter garage door to be considered. When compared with the traditionally popular up & over garage door, a roller shutter garage door offers many more diverse qualities.
In comparison to the up & over garage door, a roller shutter door does not swing out in front of the garage when opening; it simply moves vertically upwards into the space behind the lintel. This operation procedure requires very little space, affording you more space within the garage for storage. Additionally, more space is available on your driveway, allowing you to park closer to the garage, without leaving your car near to the road or path.
Unlike the sectional garage door, Gliderol roller shutter garage doors can be installed inside or behind the structural opening; in the case of an aluminium roller door, it can also be fitted in front of the opening. This opens up various design opportunites, and can further enhance the appearence of your garage and home. When a sectional garage door is open, it requires room above the opening and above the garage area for the individual panel sections to sit, whereas a Gliderol roller door requires no headroom whatsoever behind the roll itself (usually between 300 and 450mm).
Gliderol's innovative range of roller shutter garage doors allow you to have a fully functioning garage door, which increases both the security of your garage as well as the utilisation of space above the garage area, unlike traditional garage doors.
A Gliderol roller shutter garage door is simple and easy to use. It opens and closes with reliable precision, minimal amounts of noise and friction and with effective performance at all times. It requires no heavy maintenance, oiling or greasing - just an easy clean of the guides and door surface and you're ready to roll again!
The Gliderol single skin, non-insulated roller shutter is built with a unique profile frame and sturdy aluminium bottom rail, providing additional strength to the roller door to protect against intruder penetration. It is constructed with a double-sided locking system, meaning your door can be secured or unlocked from both the inside and outside of the door.
The roller shutter is completed with a durable weatherseal on the underside of the door, preventing leaves, dirt and other unwanted materials entering your garage.

Remote Control Operation
The Gliderol non-insulated roller door uses the powerful Glidermatic GRD remote control electric operator to maneuver the garage door from an open position to a closed position and vice versa. It offers reduced noise as the motor is housed entirely within the roll of the door, providing a quiet and smooth performance.
It is very easy to use when operated by the Glidermatic remote control system. This allows the door to be opened or closed either by means of a compact hand transmitter, or by a wall mounted control box on the interior of the garage. With either of these accessories, the door still opens and closes smoothly and quietly.
The risk of using another handset sharing the same code is elimnated as the transmitter uses a different code from one of two billion after every operation. Additional transmitters are available on request, and a maximum of up to ten transmitters can be used with each Glidermatic system.
The door also functions with an automatic reverse system which stops the motion of the door should the downward path of the door become restricted.
Finally, the operator also functions with an automatic light, illuminating your garage when the motor is activated for up to five minutes, allowing you to drive into a fully lit garage.
Strength, Safety & Security
The Gliderol Roller Shutter demonstrates fine examples of both strength and style. It is designed with a strong unique profile which provides security against the threat of intruders. An aluminium bottom rail offers further protection and works well with the double-sided locking system; this can be operated using either a manual handle or remote control handset.
