Security Products Overview

One of the most important requested features on any garage door we supply is now 'security'.
How can you determine whether a garage door is really secure or not?

There are some simple considerations here:

security1. Is the garage door construction itself strong, and therefore able to resist attempted forcing against the actual panel or curtain itself? A lot of cheap roller and side hinged garage doors have very flimsy and thin panels which are easy to break through with minimal effort.

2. Is the locking secure, and integrated into a proper locking cylinder with resistance to 'bumping'? Any door that has a good, strong panel construction can only be as good as the locking system. Cheap and flimsy locks and locking systems are still an easy target for an effortless and quiet break in.

3. Is the door installed in the appropriate position in order to ensure the fixings and framework are properly secured to the surrounding structure, and is the structure it is fitted to suitably strong enough to carry the weight?

These three things will ensure your garage door is reasonably secure, with or without additional security certification.


seceuroglide excel roller door

Seceuroglide Excel

This double-skinned, insulated aluminium electric roller garage door has been tested and approved by the LPCB, meaning that this roller door is officially 'Secured by Design'. This means the roller door resisted a controlled attempt at forced entry for a period of time to achieve a rating recognised by independent bodies. Equipped with enhanced guides and a patented locking system built into the barrel and motor drive area, great levels of security against intruders is ensured. The door's Secured By Design accreditation means it has measures to aid protection against attacks using items such a crow bars, screw drivers and cutting tools. However, the certification does depend on the door being installed by a certified installer, a service available with Garage Doors Online.

Hormann LPU42 Sectional

Hormann and Carteck Insulated Sectional Doors

The Hormann and Carteck range of double skinned steel sectional doors, fitted with the correct remote control electric operator, will provide excellent levels of security in an incredible range of styles, finishes and colours. The 42mm double skinned panels provide excellent attack resistance. The strength of these panels, combined with the multi rollers either side that run in steel tracks, ensure the panels are totally secured to resist a very determined forced attack. Add to this door one of the Hormann Promatic or Supramatic Bi Secur electric operators, and you have a very secure garage door.The system is of course best fitted behind the structural opening for the best possible security, preventing access to the fixings. The Hormann LPU42 door with the Bi Secure operator is awarded the ‘Secured by Design’ accreditation, whilst the Carteck door has the German equivalent certification.
