Why Roller Garage Doors Are So Secure

Why Roller Garage Doors Are So Secure-01

Whether you’re a homeowner or run a business, when looking to make a new garage door purchase, security is likely to be one of your top priorities. After all, your garage is normally home to a whole host of valuable items including cars, tools and even expensive machinery.  

You can’t put a value on the safety of a property, and you’re bound to want to purchase something that can guarantee security is enhanced. 

This is where roller garage doors come in. While the primary benefit of this type of garage door is to maximise space, they also provide a number of security benefits.

In this article, we’ll explore why you should consider purchasing a roller garage door in order to better protect your home or business. 

Robust materials

One of the main things dictating the reliability of a garage door’s security is to do with the type of material it’s made from. The roller garage doors that we supply are made from the most durable aluminium, making your garage incredibly difficult to penetrate and therefore keeping it more secure. 

Additionally to the strong double-skinned insulated slats of the main curtain, the last slat is made from extruded aluminium giving it an extra rigidity and strength. This means that as well as enhancing security, they act as a deterrent for thieves, improve insulation and even reduce noise pollution.   

Electric opening

Many roller garage doors operate electrically, and can be opened and closed using a remote control. But not all remote controls are the same, here at Rollerdor we use a rolling code remote. This means that every time the remote is used, a random code is generated which only the receiver box and handset will know is correct, making it even more secure.

Not only does this make access more convenient, but with an electric motor stopping in place, locking straps on every door applying extra pressure, and no handles on the outside,  the garage doors that we offer provide high protection against forced entry.

When you click the button on your remote control, the motor is triggered and the door will smoothly open in front of you. This means that only people who have access to the remote control will be able to access your garage and its contents. 

Overlapping lathes

When trying to break through garage doors, thieves will always look for vulnerabilities to target. Any small gaps or joints that a crowbar may fit in will be one of the first parts of the door that will be targeted, so it’s bound to be beneficial if these gaps don’t exist. 

Roller garage doors feature overlapping lathes, meaning there is little to no space between each section. With this in mind, it means that any thieves that attempt this technique when trying to break in are likely to be thwarted..  

Security accessories

These days, thieves are more sophisticated than ever before. There are a wide range of innovative ways in which people can gain access to your property, so it’s important that you do everything you can to keep it safe.

As well as all of the aforementioned reasons as to why roller garage doors can help with security, there are also a number of security accessories that you should consider purchasing to keep your garage, and therefore your property as a whole, even safer.

This includes locking straps, end locks, alarms and floor seals amongst other things. At Rollerdor, we offer the locking straps and endlocks as standard on all our doors, and have a vast array of roller garage door accessories that can help with both the security and functionality. We’re always happy to advise on what products would be most suitable for you, so get in touch to find out more.
