The garage is becoming more and more important to families and households throughout the UK. Rather than just being seen as a dead space for storing items, it is becoming more varied in use and often requires more frequent access to the space. In some instances where there is a room above the garage, there may be a need for insulation and a more energy efficient door required, so our aluminium insulated door would be a perfect choice.

Maintaining Roller Shutters the Easy Way

  1. Clean Regularly – Cleaning your shutters on a regular basis will help to avoid a build up of dirt, which can easily cause them to stick when opening or closing. In fact, this is one of the most common reasons that roller shutter engineers are called out, according to industry experts. Doors which are fitted near to a salt air environment need to cleaned on a more regular basis, as if the door coating is damaged by grit, it’s possible that the salt air will cause it to rust or peel.

Can Secure Roller Garage Doors Lower My Insurance Premium?

The garage has traditionally been an area of residential properties that thieves target. When many homeowners enhance their home security, they invest in home security alarm systems and security bars and grills for ground floor doors and windows but they often overlook the garage. This is a mistake because a property is only ever as secure as its weakest point and if the garage hasn’t been made secure with a highly secure garage roller door, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this is the area which thieves choose to target when attempting to gain entry.

Although such incidents are fortunately on a downward trend, this is still a worrying figure, and as a result, all home and business owners need to take the correct preventative measures to reduce the risk of a fire breaking out at their home or place of business.
