SC Door Co, who install garage doors throughout Newcastle, Gateshead and the North East, discuss the benefits of choosing insulated roller garage doors.


Why do we almost always recommend insulated roller garage doors for residential garages? In short: they are space-saving, secure, energy efficient and they make your home look great!

Here is an overview of the benefits of switching to an insulated roller garage door:

Insulated Roller Garage Doors

Space saving

Would you like to utilise maximum space in your garage? You can with roller garage doors, which instead of swinging up in an arch, coil up neatly at the top of the garage door opening! The closed garage door takes up nearly no space in the garage, allowing you to have room for your vehicle, storage, workspace, or whatever else needs to fit in the garage.

Aesthetically appealing

Insulated roller garage doors have a sleek, simple design that complements the appearance of almost any home. They come in a large variety of colours, styles and finishes, including everything from contemporary anthracite (a popular choice) to classic woodgrains, and even in many colours like duck egg blue!

SC Door Co provides bespoke insulated roller doors colour-matched to your colour of choice in any RAL colour, so if you’d like your garage door to match your front door, we can do that, too!

Safe & secure

Many models of insulated roller garage doors are police-approved Secured By Design meaning they’ve been certified to prevent burglary or crime based on stringent security features. It also means that these garage doors are recognised by most insurance companies.

The garage door remote control opening – which comes standard with SC Door Co! – is also very safe for homes where children or pets are present. The garage door can’t be brought down on any obstacles due to its bottom edge safety system, and it includes an anti-drop brake, making it very safe.

Energy efficient garage doors

Insulated roller garage doors protect the garage from getting too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Our garage doors come with brush strips at the side, a bottom rubber seal and insulated lath as standard, helping to maintain a comfortable temperature in the garage and saving you money on energy. The insulation also helps keep sound levels down.


Did we mention that insulated roller garage doors also come with up to a seven-year full warranty?
