Let’s compare roller shutter garage doors to other types of garage doors.

Sectional garage doors are sectioned into parts. they’re attached by hinges, these doors when opened are rolled up and settle parallel to the rooftop of the garage. The hinges in which the sectional garage doors are made up of can become damaged at a higher rate at which a roller shutter garage door would.  Moreover, you need enough ceiling space for sectional garage doors while roller shutters require a small amount of space.


Slide to the side garage doors is the go-to option for people who have limited ceiling space, but again if the trolley is damaged the entire unit is difficult to manage. This is because the entire model is dependent on trolleys.


Up and over doors or commonly known as “tilt doors”, they’re more commonly used in larger garages, this is because of the space they require. If you don’t have the space to occupy an up and over garage door a roller shutter garage door is a great alternative, needing very little amounts of space.


From comparing roller shutter garage doors to other types of garage doors, we have uncovered that roller shutter garage door is perfect for all homes no matter the size of space or type of home you may have. With our bespoke roller shutter garage doors, we are able to build the perfect garage door for you and your home. Another important aspect to remember is that they are heavy duty doors meaning that the security of your home is increased protecting you and your family. In any other model if the core concept of door fails it is difficult to use the door, but in case of roller doors, you can manually roll the door up and down if the drum doesn’t work.
