Gliderol Roller Doors

Gliderol are a large UK manufacturer of roller doors who supply their products to some of the big UK garage door manufacturers and also ship internationally.  You can see their website at www.gliderol.co.uk (all the Salesy stuff) but the important information (will it fit? how much is it?) is repeated on this page.

Overview
Gliderol roller doors are made with a galvanised steel profile curtain with maintenance - free Plastisol coating which runs in steel guide rails on either side.  The door mounts to rear face of the garage door opening which often allows for a wider opening width - useful for today's bigger cars.

Roller doors offer increased security as the door is held in 'C' guides all of the way down both sides of the door from floor to ceiling.  Gliderol roller doors also reduce the drafts in your garage compared to standard 'up and over' doors as they have with weather seals across the base of the door and a tight fit in the guides. 

Unlike an 'up and over' garage door a Gliderol door rolls up vertically and consequently doesn't swing out in front of the garage. This means you can park right up to the door and benefit from more hanging space in the roof of the garage.

Replacing old doors:  Most people remove the old door and frame to give a wider opening, i.e. a 7' wide traditional door door would generally give a 7'6" brick to brick width - a lot easier to drive through.

Guarantee information:
Gliderol doors are built to take the wear and tear of life and the weather and they are able to provide some impressive guarrantees as long as the door is reasonably maintained:

10-year Plastisol door finish
6-year mechanical parts
2-year electric parts

Delivery
As a rule of thumb orders received in week 1 are manufactured during week 2 and delivered direct from the manufacturer during week 3.  Delivery is free for the majority of UK destinations however the Scottish Highlands and other outlying areas will attract a delivery charge (approx' 30) - contact us for details.  

Options/choices
Gliderol Roller doors are available in a choice of 9 colours at no additional charge - White, Mushroom, Goosewing Grey, British Racing Green, Olive Green, Night Blue, Burgundy, Vandyke Brown, Terracotta, Mahogany Woodgrain, Golden Oak Woodgrain (see pricing), Black and White.  We have a limited number of steel samples which can be posted to you - contact us.  View Gliderol's colour chart

Electric operation is also available and comes complete with two remote controls, an internal courtesy light and auto-reverse safety sensor system.  Additional remote controls can be added to your order at 40 inc VAT.

In the event of a power failure you will need to access the garage via a personnel door to engage the manual override and open the door manually.  If you do not have an alternative way into the garage then you must purchase the 'External Manual Release/Electric Key Switch' at 80 inc VAT.  This is fitted next to the garage door... turning the key in one direction enables you to open the door if there is a power cut and turning the key in the other direction allows you to open the door with the electric motor (assuming there is power!).

The Windlock System should be specified for double doors being fitted to garages in exposed locations - typically 100 depending on the height of the door.
