Aluminium

Aluminium would seem to be an obvious choice of material for the manufacture of garage doors as it is light, strong and does not rust though. At present aluminium isn’t used in as many door products as you might expect. Aluminium has been much more widely used in the past for garage doors than it currently is today as the cost of aluminium has increased and as the quality of steel doors has got better steel has forced aluminium out of the use of up and over garage doors and domestic sectional garage doors. There is however one particular type of garage door where aluminium is still very much in use, roller garage doors. Aluminium roller garage doors Aluminium is used extensively in the production of roller doors (also known as roller shutter doors). The slats that make up the curtain are made from roll formed aluminium. That slat has a double skin and a foam core which keeps the curtain relatively light in weight but also strong. The guide rails are made from aluminium extrusions which keeps the curtain true and ridged as it opens and closes on doors with full or half boxes (where the coil is either partially or fully enclosed). Roller doors come in a range of polyester coated finishes and also a huge range of foil laminate finishes such as Golden Oak and Rosewood, there is also the option have the door finished to any standard RAL colour. Some of the most secure doors we offer are aluminium roller doors such as the SeceuroGlide Excel which has Secure by Design accreditation. If you would like to see working examples of aluminium roller garage doors we have doors in our showroom for you to see and try from SWS SeceuroGlide, Novoferm and Garador. ...More
