 GlideRol-a-Door Garage Roller Shutter Door

‘Tried and tested throughout the world’

The GlideRol-a-Door single skin garage roller shutter door offers an economical alternative to the traditional up & over garage door. They save space inside the garage and allow you to drive right up to the front of the garage.

Available with manual push up/pull down operation or electrically operated by the Glidermatic GRD motor with remote control.

With a Gliderol roller door you also get the advantage of Gliderol’s worldwide technology, which gives the reassurance of knowing that Gliderol is one of the world’s most experienced roller garage door manufacturers.

Easy to use Secure Space Saving
Award Winning Low Maintenance Guarantees

 Now with the new stronger profile! Security

The rolling code circuitry ensures fail-safe security and eliminates the risk of another handset using the same code.

The Glide-a-Code transmitter, using a UHF frequency, transmits a different code after every operation. Each time the handset and the control box move on to a new setting from one of two billion codes.

The Glidermatic drive unit automatically reverses should the downward movement of the door be restricted.

Guaranteed to last!

Because Gliderol doors are built to take the wear and tear of life and the weather, Gliderol are able to provide some impressive guarantees. So long as the door is reasonably maintained Gliderol doors are guaranteed against all normal conditions – in the case of electrical components for 2 years, mechanical parts for 6 years and the door finish for 10 years.

Available Colours

Gliderol roller doors are currently available in twelve attractive colours. A colour chart is available on request.

Olive Green
Mahogany Woodgrain
Poppy Red
Vandyke Brown
Racing Green
Goosewing Grey
Night Blue

All doors are finished in Plastisol which is an extremely hard wearing and low maintenance surface, developed by Corus plc (formerly British Steel) and guaranteed for ten years. A wet cloth is all that is normally needed to keep your Gliderol door looking like new.

Technical Specifications

Gliderol rollers doors are available up to 5000mm wide x 3000mm high. All are custom made to suit your exact opening and because they sit behind the brickwork they are ideal for arched and unusual garage openings.

Requiring no frame, installation is easy.

Whilst manual doors can be easily converted to automatic operation later, there is a significant cost saving if the unit is factory fitted at the outset.
