Aluminium Roller Doors  

Nearly all aluminium roller garage doors in the UK are constructed from individual double skinned slats usually with a foam filled core and are about 19mm thick as an average. Each aluminium slat is usually about 75mm deep and they all vary slightly in the front face design, some have totally smooth surface, some have a thin line or two as a feature in the design. The slat always has a curved shape,and this enables the curtain to roll efficiently.  

The differences between this door and the steel roller garage door are quite apparent but there are so many manufacturers now in the UK it is difficult to generalise. One of the biggest differences is that aluminium roller doors nearly always use a tube motor system for electric operation and nearly all doors are electric as it is quite difficult to produce a satisfactory manual version. There are 2 exceptions, and these are the Hormann Rollmatic and the Garador Gararoll which are effectively the same door and they both use an external mounted motor system. With a barrel type motor system on any roller door there is a minimum level of safety required as the motors simply drive up or down under power and need other external devices to control the movement. The full details on safety requirements on insulated aluminium roller doors using tube motor can be found in our `Are you prepared to gamble` article and we suggest you do read it as unfortunately there are so many roller door manufacturers completely ignoring the current legal requirements on safety and claiming the doors to be CE compliant. A remote control electric roller door is in the eyes of the law a `machine` and comes under regulations relating to this simple fact.  

Aluminium roller garage doors offer a much higher level of insulation, security, practicality, and style than the more basic steel doors and have far greater variations in application as there are so many different sized slats to choose from with almost any colour ultimately available in paint finishes as well as a huge choice of woodgrain finished laminate coatings.

The guides for the door curtain are usually between 60 to 100mm wide and offer greater resistance to forced entry attempts and high winds.  

The curtain roll size is smaller than a steel roller door as the individual slats roll up tighter – an important factor for maximising drive through height when open if internal headroom is restricted.  

The curtain is stronger as the slats are double skinned, and foam filled.  

The operation is quieter as the motor is inside the roll and DC operated as well as the tolerances between the curtain and the guides being smaller reducing the chance of rattling in windy conditions.

The electric motor is controlled as standard using a wall mounted control box with built in lighting, push button controls and a receiver for the radio hand transmitters supplied with rolling code technology used on higher specification models.

With the  high quality aluminium roller shutter, the seal is much better as the curtain fully unfolds and pushes inside the lintel when the curtain closes. Simple roller shutter doors have a large gap at the top when closed, as the curtain roll contracts when closed, creating a gap between the back of the lintel and the front of the door curtain.

The  aluminium roller shutters have less movement between slats and more movement with doors with an average height of 21 slats,which gives them more flexibility in closing gaps in uneven floors, so the bottom sealing is always excellent.  

In general, aluminium double-skin roller doors are superior in strength, stability, and security to single-skin doors, which offer additional benefits in all rounds.
