Roller doors are one of the most popular garage door types in Australia, and for good reason. Their unique combination of simplicity and practicality makes them a perfect choice for many people looking to build, renovate or replace their home’s garage door.
They consist of a single sheet of corrugated Colorbond steel that rolls up as the garage door is raised into a cylinder or barrel that sits at the top of your garage opening, behind the lintel. This unique storage method means that you only need a small amount of vertical space to store your garage door, and is perfect for garages that aren’t deep enough to accommodate tracks along the roof.
In the rare instances where a roller door does not have enough headroom inside of a garage for the barrel mechanism to be installed, they can be reverse rolled. This means that the barrel is placed on the outside of your garage, with no loss in functionality.
This simple design means that roller doors are simple to install, maintain and use every day. They are also incredibly easy to automate, with standard roller door auto-openers taking up very little room on the side of the barrel.
While many people choose to automate their roller doors for the incredible convenience it offers, they in no way need to be automated and we will happily install them with only manual control.
We offer roller doors in a variety of different options to ensure you can find the perfect fit for your home and garage. While only available in Colorbond steel sheeting, roller doors can be customised when ordered in one of several faux-wood colours, to match your home’s aesthetic and present nicely (although these colour options are brand dependent).
Roller doors can also be ordered reverse coloured, where the chosen design is placed onto the back of the door instead of the front.
If you have a sloping driveway, you may have concerns about a new roller door fully meeting the ground and leaving an unsightly, unsecure gap underneath the door. We are able to compensate for this by organising a roller door with a tapered bottom that will more easily connect to the driveway. This ensures they are both more visually pleasing and more secure.
We can also organise specialist key locks for the external side of your garage door. These are placed at waist-height and give you the peace of mind that you aren’t trading security for convenience with your new roller door.
