What are the advantages of the roller garage door?

1. The location of the motor and the rolled up garage door.

The rolling mechanism box is placed on the ceiling. This remains relevant for garages with limited floor space. Thus, the door once rolled up does not encroach on the space surrounding the entrance of the garage, nor roof space.

Thus, each available m² remains usable for storage or other purposes.


2. Insulation of Garage Doors

Be careful, not all garage doors are created equal in this regard. For some, insulated garage doors are not important but for other’s, garage door insulation is a focal point of a purchase. They must also be injected with polyurethane foam to complete the insulation.

This is crucial because a garage door that insulates well will allow you to maintain a pleasant interior temperature, the garage being a cool room in the hotter temperatures has many benefits, but also a shielded room from the cold elements in the winter months also has many benefits.


3. The possibility of Garage Doors being motorised

Roller garage doors are almost always completely motorised (except older versions). It’s a really helpful feature to access your garage especially when it’s raining, and it avoids you having to get out of your car.

There are different types of motorisation: with remote control or fully centralised via a smart system or wifi for complete control of all motorised equipment in your home.

It is important when building a house to think about the motorisation of equipment. We, therefore, offer solutions that allow you to open and close various garage doors with a simple remote solution.
