Why choose an Electric Garage Door for your home?
Is your manual garage door too heavy or unreliable? It’s time for an upgrade!
Unlike Up and Over garage doors, electric roller garage doors allow you to have full use of your driveway and have head space too, as the slats roll up into the top box, saving you space inside and outside your garage. There’s no need for lifting, the electric garage doors we supply and install can be opened using a remote control.
Electric garage doors are not only practical, they’re also secure and energy efficient. Double walled 18mm aluminium slats create energy efficient insulation using CFC free insulating foam. Of course security is important if you keep anything valuable in your garage, but insulation not only forms part of the thickness of your door, but also becomes essential to insulate your garage when you use it often or if your garage is connected to the house.
Our large range of electric garage doors are easy to operate and offer many advantages over manual models!
High Level of Safety
Electric garage doors have an anti-drop safety brake system as standard and come supplied with a bottom rail safety edge which detects an obstruction whilst closing.
Electric garage doors are operated automatically using a remote control, meaning there’s no more manually lifting your garage door. If you’re in the car, you can use your remote fob to open and close it without getting out of the car.
Automated doors are tougher to gain access to than a traditional garage door, as to access the garage you need to use the remote fob, which helps to deter thieves.
Choice of styles & sizes
Our electric garage doors are made to measure, which means you get the perfect fit for your garage, whatever the size. We offer a large range of sectional garage doors and roller doors in a variety of styles and colours.
