Gliderol Roller Door DIY Installation

Roller Shutters are very easy to measure and install, and the Gliderol Roller Door is no different.

If you are intending to purchase and install the Gliderol Roller Door then you need to start by making sure you order and specify the right size roller door. The Gliderol roller door can only be installed to the inside face of a structural opening or behind a suitable structure such as a timber framework.


Width Dimensions Explained

Width Dimensions
Maximum Overall Width for Gliderol Roller Door = 5003mm
Minimum Overall Width for Gliderol Roller Door = 1200mm

The Curtain Width is also the reference for the Ordering Width when purchasing a Gliderol roller door and is the Structural Opening Width plus the curtain and guide overlap on each side which is 25mm each on a roller door up to 3450mm total width and 50mm each side on a roller door over 3450mm.

Example: A 2500mm wide garage opening requires a further 50mm adding for the 2 no. 25mm guides each side giving an Ordering Width size of 2550mm.

Summary of Ordering Width Requirements
'A' Series door width - Structural Opening Width + 50mm
'AA' Series door width - Structural Opening Width + 100mm

The support brackets and fixing lugs on the guides make the total width required on a basic manual door 75mm wider EACH SIDE than the daylight opening width up to 3348mm wide and 125mm each side on the wider AA series doors.

It is essential you calculate the total width required for installation purposes as it is wider than the ordering size!
