The roller door is characterized by its ability to roll around the drum above the door opening. Garage doors have diversified a lot since the roller shutter was invented, but some people are still in favor of the traditional roller shutter.
There are several reasons why roller doors in Brisbane are loved by people and recommended by garage door experts.
Perfect for compact spaces
Roller doors do not require the installation of rails along with the garage ceiling, making them perfect for space problems. With sectional doors, the rail along the ceiling is usually slightly longer than the height of the door. If your door is 2.4 meters high, it will take approximately 2.6 meters. Free space along with your ceiling for the rail system into which the door can slide up and down. A roller shutter requires less space for the entire ceiling, as it grows neatly around it at the top of the garage opening. For all car enthusiasts, this means leaving your ceiling space free so you can set a car elevator or similar equipment. If you want security but are concerned about space, a roller shutter door may be the best choice for you.
Versatility in size
Roller doors can be made narrower, shorter and higher than a sectional door. The width can also be made in steps of 5 mm. Roller doors come in a wide variety of sizes, but they do not cover all sizes. They are generally not made as wide as a sectional door and typically stop at 5.4 meters wide.
Versatility in use
Roller shutters are safe, lightweight and designed to withstand the harsh climate if they are equipped with the special wind lock system to prevent them from blowing in and out in strong winds. They are designed to perform in a wide variety of circumstances without compromising on safety. That is why it is a point of contact for commercial and industrial customers.
The off-the-shelf roller shutters can be automated, installed with planetary chain-driven equipment for easy access to and from a property, and come with a variety of different rail guides and locking options. For many years, roller doors have been used to secure homes, business complexes, investment properties, prefabricated sheds, storage rooms and much more.
The roller shutter door is popular with those looking for a smarter start-up cost to get a door onto their property. This is a clear benefit, there are two important things to keep in mind:
- Like all other garage doors, roller doors must be serviced regularly so that they continue to function properly.
- Roll-up doors can be a challenge to repair during repairs due to their design of a single metal curtain. It is not possible to replace just a single panel like a sectional door, which means that the door is more likely to be damaged by the roller shutter. The entire door needs to be replaced.
The roller shutter definitely has its place in the garage door world. If you think it is the right door for you, see the photos of the roller shutters online on the Roller Shutters page and contact a professional to have them installed.
