The Clyde electric roller shutter garage door has to be one of the neatest garage door solutions available with vertical opening and closing and no internal tracking mechanism required inside the garage at all. This provides you with more room on your driveway and the option for additional storage space above where a standard up & over door would open. You can also park right up to the door, outside or inside and still operate it. The whole door will usually roll into a size of about 300 x 300mm in a position behind, underneath or in front of the garage lintel. With an almost limitless selection of colours and woodgrain finishes as well as most doors being made to order the roller door is a garage door worth looking at. The roller garage door is the most diverse type of door in terms of installation positioning and can be installed on practically any shape or size of garage door opening. Over the last 10 or so years the higher specification double skin aluminium roller garage door has been reducing in price until now it is very favourable compared to the single skin steel roller garage door. This is only the case when comparing remote control garage doors however as the aluminium roller door is only available as electric operation. Some careful consideration must be given however to the specification of the insulated roller garage door as there are many doors manufactured that do not meet the stringent CE regulations in the UK so are technically 'illegal'.
All Clyde roller garage doors are usually made to fit your opening perfectly with no particular stock sizes available. The ideal installation is normally mounting the door internally to give the maximum width and height when open but a roller door can fit in between and even externally of your structural opening with an optional hood enclosure to protect the curtain whilst remaining visually appealing. There are very few applications when a roller door will not fit and the only compromise is that the design of all the different types is always going to be horizontal lines.
The roller garage door is the most versatile of doors as it can be manufactured to almost any size or colour (certain slat types only).
As the roller garage door rises vertically this means it can be installed behind any shape of structural opening such as archways, etc. Another very useful application is when a garage has a particularly high ceiling or when tracks into the garage would be running in front of a side door or similar obstruction.
There are very few applications when a rolling door will not fit and the only compromise is that the design of all the different types is always going to be horizontal lines.
Most roller shutter doors are very secure as standard with manual versions having sliding bars internally locking into the side channels and remote control doors using various different locking devices held from the barrel that the curtain is attached to. Some are far more effective than others in attempted forced entry from the bottom of the door curtain.

Fitting Inside the Opening. Typical installation position, when fitted like this the maximum width and height is normally achieved although a loss of garage length has to be considered.
Fitting Behind the Opening. Typical installation position, when fitted like this the maximum width and height is normally achieved although a loss of garage length has to be considered.
Fitting In between the Opening. This position is quite normal but will not give such a wide drive through width or height when open.
Fitting Outside the Opening. This is unusual but gives maximum length, width and height in most cases. A complete hood cover is required to protect the curtain roll and this will need powder coating along with the guides and endplates to complete the visual appearance.
A superb, standard safety feature of our roller doors is the inclusion of an integrated, infra-red photo electric safety beam which enables the door to stop automatically and return it to the opening position should an unwanted obstruction be detected in the zone of the doors path. This feature, a distinct advantage over other bottom rail devices, works by detecting the obstruction before it touches the door, thus preventing possible damage to the unit, or injury.
Safety is a fundamental concern in the continuing development of the range. All Clyde's roller doors are fully CE compliant and come as standard with Safety Edge collision detection and Anti-Fallback devices where required. Infra red beams on their own as a safety device are not legal!!
