Insulated garage doors

What is plastisol and why do we use it for our roller garage doors?

Autoroll insulated roller garage doors have a number of key benefits, including excellent thermal and sound insulation properties which combine with a flexible choice of colours and a pleasant, warm feel for the user. These properties are down to the material that we coat the steel with, which is a popular PVC based material called Plastisol. Plastisol is comprised of a PVC or polymer suspension within a liquid plasticiser and can be poured as a liquid at manufacturing stage into molds or applied to materials such as steel sheeting. When the plastisol is applied and heated to approx 177 degrees celsius, the particles dissolve forming a highly viscous gel which when cooled to below 60 degerees celsius is a permanent and highly resilient solid material. 

Protected for life

Apart from providing thermal insulation and sound insulating properties, Plastisol also has excellent corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance and defends well against impact damage, very useful in a busy garage. These features help make our high quality roller garage doors the perfect choice for a long serviceable life and they can also match your home perfectly due to the choice of colours and stylish appearance.
