Roller Garage doors

Space saving

Unlike an up and over door a GlideRol a Door © rolls up vertically and consequently doesn't swing out in front of the garage. This means you can park right up to the door and benefit from more hanging space in the roof of the garage as well



Because the GlideRol a Door© fits behind the brickwork opening, has full height steel guides and full width dual locking bars, it provides a very high level of security. In addition, the aluminium bottom rail is specifically designed to reinforce Gliderol doors against intruder penetration.

Smooth and quiet operation

Whether you choose the manual or the luxury of automatic operation, a gliderol roller door is very easy to operate. The doors incorporate a spring assisted mechanism in the roller providing precise balance and giving the user effortless operation. A fin balance between the weight of the curtain and the upward pull of the springs is maintained regardless of the position of the door. To further enhance the smoothness and quietness of operation, the doors incorporate revolutionary 'Polyglide' running strips which guide the door with minimum friction.

High Spec means low maintenance 

Both the GlideRol a Door© itself and the roller mechanism are designed to require extremely low maintenance. Wherever possible, hard wearing nylon parts or bearings are used to reduce friction without need for lubrication. Doors are pre-finished in durable HP200 colourcoat pre- finished steel with Plastisol coating. Plastisol is a proven, very hardwearing surface which ensures that Gliderol garage doors maintain their appearance for many years without painting.

Easy to use

Glidermatic remote control, the worlds most popular remote control roller door system, allows the door to be opened or closed by means of a compact hand transmitter, which works up to 100m away, or in the garage with the wall mounted push button. Either way, the door opens and closes as smoothly and quietly as you like.


The unique rolling code circuitry ensures fail safe security and eliminates risk of another handset using the same code.  The glide-a- code transmitter, using an uhf frequency, transmits a different code after every operation. Each time the handset and control box move on to a new setting from one of the two billion codes. Not surprising it is one of the most secure available anywhere in the world and ensures that the operator will not be activated by another transmitter.


The glidermatic drive unit automatically reverses should the downward movement of the door be restricted


Quiet Operation

As the glidermatic drive unit is housed entirely within the door- roll noise emissions are substantially reduced resulting in a quiet and smoother performance, which also provides greater space saving in the garage.
